How Should I Control my side effects?


I came to know about my ill health reasons. Actually, I wasn't taking anything proper food and supplements when I got pregnant. However, I started taking Melatonin, CoQ10, Myo-Inositol, DHEA, L-Arginine. They may have given some fertility boost leading me up to this mark.

Though some weakness I felt during this treatment. Unwanted vomiting, legs swelling, head ache these all was badly irritating me all the time. I could not find myself easy up till I go to a bed at night.

I wanna know about other ladies on this, is there any????

hi dear ......... its not good that you don't take your diet properly ........ take proper diet as you have to extra careful at this time when you are going to give birth to another life . well consult your doctor and follow a diet chart properly :)

Oh, I'm sorry. Ovarian swelling is one of the common side effects of the drugs in IVF and ICSI. You can look after yourself at home as long as the symptoms are mild. Symptoms usually include bloating and discomfort in your belly and nausea. Painkillers prescribed by your dr, such as paracetamol or codeine, are safe to take and should help to relieve pain. But avoid taking anti-inflammatories, such as ibuprofen or aspirin, as they can affect your kidneys.

You should also drink water to keep your fluid levels up. Just drink enough so that you don't feel thirsty. Although you may think more fluid is the last thing you need when you're bloated, it will help the rest of your body to keep hydrated. Whatever your symptoms, you don't have to suffer in silence. If you're feeling overwhelmed, anxious or depressed, seek out some support. It may help to talk though your worries with a friend or someone in your family.Talk to your doctor, too. She may be able to adjust your dosage or switch you to another drug. Hope this helps. Feel better.
