Success after IF

Did anyone drink wine while on Lupron?

I said I wasn't going to drink at all once I started my injections, but I'm on vacay in DC and we went to a really nice steakhouse last night and I had a glass there, then an Italian place tonight and had 2 glasses there. I love my red wine, but I want a baby so much more! I know I can't put my entire life on pause, but I don't want to jeopardize anything either? Can anyone give me some good news so I can stop feeling guilty, or should I really feel this way?

Re: Did anyone drink wine while on Lupron?

  • I can't remember what the suggestions are but I had one beer the day after I started Lupron then didn't touch a drop until after I had LO. I felt what you said. I wanted a baby much worse than I wanted alcohol. I hope that doesn't sound mean because I certainly don't want it to, but I would stop drinking if I were you. Everyone else may disagree though!!!

  • I did! I was on Lupron for over a month before starting stims. I can't take BCP because of my clotting disorders. It didn't stop me from drinking. I even had one bad night involving an open bar and my DH ordering me doubles without me knowing. I've been through enough that I feel like having some drinks while on Lupron is definitely not the deciding factor. GL!

    ETA: I stopped any alcohol once I started stims. At that point I treated my body like I was pregnant.

  • I went out for drinks the night of my iui...and then went to an outdoor music festival 8 days later. Because I had no hope left, sort of...and that was my successful cycle.

    Not ivf, but I did injects. Don't go super crazy every night, but don't feel guilty! Enjoy!

    I've heard a lot say no drinking during stims, but Lupron is ok. I just started on Saturday, I've been on BCP for a little over 3 weeks. I really don't think the 3 glasses I've had in 2 days is that big of a deal, I just need reassurance from people who have been successful. I just don't think I'll drink from here on out. I worry too much!

  • I drank on Lupron! Not tons and tons, but I clearly remember having my IRL IVF buddy make me a margarita on Friday, when I started stims on Saturday. I will confess to one beer while on stims. 

    My IVF buddy made herself the same margarita a few months later (on Lupron, the day before stims), which was her successful cycle. 

    Relax and don't stress. IF is stressful enough without mentally blaming yourself for a failure when it hasn't happened yet. Hugs and good luck on your cycle!

  • I did! And, I had a very nice beer the night before stims. I stopped drinking while on stims, but had no problem during Lupron. No worries!!
    Three TI cycles (BFP...miscarriage), five IUI attempts and 2.5 IVF cycles later...BFP!!

    Our perfect baby boys were born at 36w1d!! 








  • Personally, I didn't drink as soon as I started any shots and really didn't drink much on BCPs either.  For me, I just didn't want to look back if the cycle wasn't successful and wonder what if... to every little thing.  So the things I could control, I did.  But that's just me.  GL!
