I was in PIO last month for my IVF cycle and was basically fine. I hadn't been on Crinone since very early 2012, but I'm using it for this IUI. The last couple of days I've been having evil mood swings and gone on insane crying jags. A wonderful thing right before the holidays! You'd think PIO would be far worse on the mood/emotions since far more of it gets in the bloodstream, but for some reason the Crinone is far worse for me.
Anyway, just had to vent. I hope everyone else is having a better weekend than I am! My husband has gone away to celebrate Xmas with his family (at my urging -- I have a new job so not much vacation accumulated, and he has some elderly relatives whom he really ought to get home to see) so it's just me and the cats, looking at egg donor profiles online, eating chocolate and crying. Merry Christmas to me! :-P
