I've had my follow up WTF with my RE end of March and now I'm heading to IVF 2. He's added Androgel and Saizen to this cycle and I'm wondering if anyone has been on these meds before and wondering if you could share your experiences with taking these meds (ie: side effects etc). I was put on them in hopes that it increases the number of my follicles. Last cycle I produced 3 eggs from 9 follies of which two fertilized (one is in the freezer and the other resulted in an M/C beginning of Jan 2017).
I've only started taking Androgel beginning of this month and so far I feel ok. Aside from having a hard time sleeping, some slight agitation/ moodiness and now breaking out around my jaw line (which is the zone you would normally break out if it's due to hormone, and I normally break out around this area if/ when I'm near my period but I'm not so I'm sure it's from Androgel coz I don't ever break out unless around AF). It's funny coz I didn't feel any differently when I was on my IVF 1 (with estrace priming then menopur, puregone and orgalutran).
I'm worried that I would get progressively worse once I start my estrace priming then heading to the same 3 shots + saizen... especially the moodiness... I'm afraid no one would want to be around me lol ... I get PMS a day or two before my AF normally and I can't imagine being like that for a couple of weeks while cycling.... anyway, any input/ feedback, experience-sharing would help!
Let me know if these meds actually help with the number of follies and all that... I know you can't do much with the numbers and my RE said that but this is just a long shot.... so I figure why not try....
Thank you in advance and for taking your time to read my blabber!!
