I'm wondering if fertility treatments have had an effect on your brain functioning. During my treatment, I experienced side effects like weight gain and hormonal acne, but most of that went away after I stopped the drugs.
The brain functioning is another story. I feel like my short-term memory is gone. I have a difficult time retaining new information and I'm nowhere as sharp as I used to be. It's been over half a year since I've been on any meds, but I still haven't improved. We're still doing infertility stuff (there have been a multitude of complications that we continue to encounter), so I'm wondering if it's the continued stress of infertility that's impacting my mental health.
I'm curious to know how others have fared. Have you experienced any short-term or long-term side effects? How did you deal with it? Did anything help? I really want my brain back.
