Re: IUI and menopur

  • i didn't do menopur with IUI. I did do it for IVF, in combination with follistim. I remember sometimes I'd feel warm and when I got close to the IVF I started to feel bloated, i think because of the size of the follies that were growing. other than that it was ok. good luck!
  • I did it with IUI.  The only side effects I had was the big, red, painful lumps at the injection site that lasted for about 12 hours...just in time for the next injection.  : )

  • I am in my 2ww for my #2 IUI with Menopur/Follistim. The first time, I was a mess--ovary sensitivity (I swear I could feel them and elimination was awful!!), my breasts hurt, I had mood swings, and I was so itchy--I felt like an addict.

    Then, this time-nothing. OK....lying, I am still a moody, crabby,betch--but none of the physical symptoms. Actually, I feel like nothing is happening and the whole #2 round was a big waste of time and $$--RE says wait until 10/2 and POAS. So, we shall see....hopefully some swimmers did their thing and my pitiful mood will soon lift wishes to you for BFP!!

  • This is my 3rd month using menopur. The first two months, no notable side effects. This month though I had diarrhea (that was treatable with over the counter meds) the first day but after that nothing. However also unlike the first 2 months, my follicles didn't respond as well this month so the dose has been increased to 1 1/2 doses. That has resulted in redness around the injection site and some mild nausea. But none of the side effects have been too uncomfortable.


    Good luck!
