Appetite during IVF Cycle

I'm doing my first IVF cycle.. and I feel like I am ALWAYS hungry!!  Has anyone else experienced this?

Re: Appetite during IVF Cycle

  • kinda, but i have been pleased that healthy snacks like fruit and raw veggies have been satisfying for it. i don't HAVE to go for the gooey sweet stuff that i am usually more prone to.

  • I didn't have this problem until a couple days ago (about 3 days after ET).  I'm not sure why it waited so long to hit me, but I feel like I'm starving all the time.  It's really weird because when I'm stressed I have trouble eating (which is why I've managed to lose 20 pounds since we started treatments) and now for some reason I'm starving even though I'm stressed.
    It took 3 1/2 long years, but we finally got our little miracle!

    I'm on CD 10 of stimming.  I've been taking 10 units Lupron in the AM, then 75 Follistim and 1 vial menopur.  It seems like since about CD5 or so, all I want to do is eat.  I am a freak about controlling my weight, so this of course scares me.  I'll be eating breakfast and be thinking about whats for lunch lol.  Weird!
