Started lupron

10 units every morning... Started on Monday. I've been lucky so far (last cycle and this) in that I haven't really experienced the Lupron side effects, well, except headaches, but as I'm prone to migraines I feel that doesn't really count. However, a friend just posted this article written by a man on Lupron which gave me a good chuckle. My favorite part was at the end, when he finally understands what insanity is caused by raging horomones:

And, guys, when your significant female other bursts into tears at the drop of a dinner plate or turns on you like a rabid pit bull — whether she’s pregnant, having her period or in the throes of menopause — believe her when she blames it on the hormones.

Finally, a man who understands...


  1. Love that! I wish that man would have a talk to my boyfriend and explain to him the raging female hormone insanity. A man who understands indeed.

  2. That is too funny! Good luck on the lupron!

    Thanks for your comments on my blog. To answer your question ... we HAD 8 frozen blasts from IVF #1, but we did 4 FETs and used them all. FET#1 = Myles, FET#2 & 3 = early m/c, and FET #4 (with GC) = m/c at 8.5wks. So, we didn't opt to leave them frozen and get fresh. However, before our transfer to K we did discuss using keeping the last two frozen and getting fresh, but our RE decided that they were great quality and opted to transfer them. I wish you the best as you make these tough decisions.
