I'm 29 and have been ttc since August 2015. We finally started seeing a specialist at the end of January this year. I was diagnosed with "mild PCOS." I have regular cycles and ovulate, but I have 20+ follicles on each ovary.
I've been taking Metformin since February and my husband and I decided to proceed with IUI this month. I went in for my initial appointment Wednesday and began taking Letrozole (Femara) yesterday. I have severe health anxiety so this whole process is extremely daunting for me. I was up all night fearing something bad would happen from taking the first dose of Letrozole and and even more nervous for when I'll have to take the trigger shot of Ovidrel because I've read it can cause OHSS.
Has anyone been through this process? Are there any bad side effects from the Femara or Ovidrel? I just pray we only have to go through this one time. I'm so exhausted from being heartbroken every month and every near me conceiving so quickly and easily.
I'm super concerned about OHSS.
Thanks in advance.
