Trouble TTC

Started injects today and off to a good start

Went to the RE today for my day 3 monitoring and go ahead to start injects.  The bravelle rep had just been in yesterday so he gave me 10 vials for free!  Gotta love that! He apologized for not being able to give me more but I'm not upset at all, actually thankful that I got any :)

The nurse gave me my first shot and it burned a little...she said that's normal..?

What kind of side effects have any of you guys experienced on Bravelle?

    That's awesome-anything free is great!

    When I started stims I was mixing menopur (which I've heard burns) and bravelle-it definitely burned a bit.  I didn't have any side effects really (i think i was lucky!)

    I started in Bravelle, and then they threw in Menopur a couple of days for side effects, I was bloated as all get-out, and just felt like my ovaries were the size of baseballs, so everything in that general abdomen area was just really tender.
