thanks bluerosie & anonymousjane! yep, i got my "preview" of IVF when i did my SO-IUI. tbh, i think i can get used to the injections. still dread doing it everyday but it's something i can live with. i'm more concerned with the physical and mental side effects of IVF - any idea if weight gain and mood swings are common symptoms? my doc told me that with modern medication the weight gain is pretty much non-existent or minimal, more of bloating if anythingIVF is not painful actually...during ER, you will be knocked off with GA, so you wouldnt feel the pain. If you have done SO IUI , the jabs are almost the same, just a little more..
