Menopur Side Effects

Postby MomSolo » Sun Sep 20, 2015 6:30 pm

I just had my 5th IUI, but this was my first one on injectables.

I took Femara (CD3-7) and Menopur (CD7-11). Then I took Ovidrel on CD12 for an IUI on CD14. I'm only 2DPIUI, so I know that I wouldn't be having any symptoms, but I am dead-on-my-feet tired almost all of the time (for the past couple of days). Has anyone else experienced this as a side effect while on injectables?

(It could, you know, also be life, I guess... but I haven't ever felt this exhausted before.)

Yes, I was tired and dragging last cycle (my only one using injectables so far). I was also going to acupuncture and the lady there said that it was common because your body is on overdrive focusing on making those follicles with the meds, etc. Just take care of yourself and eat well & rest.

Ah, that makes sense. I figured it was something along those lines, but it's been killer for the last week!

Hi,

I had two rounds of menopur (first iui bfn, second iui cancelled for overstimulation) and I too found the main side effect to be tiredness. I would be falling asleep on the sofa at 7pm. For me, the tiredness seemed to hit about an hour after taking the injection.

My last cycle with HMG (Menopur) i was horribly fatigued. My belly hurt so bad and I could barely move or walk. I was very close to over stimulation. It hurt until my next cycle started. OUCH!
