Lupron, oh Lupron....

How I really don't love thee.  At all.

I've been injecting 10 units of Lupron into my belly since October 8th.  A measly 11 days.  Yet, the headaches I have make it feel like I've injected an entire gallon 3 times a day.  Okay, that's gross, sorry.  But the deal is I have had a pretty-much constant headache in the front of my forehead for 10 days straight.  Not fun.

Here's the good news:  I had my first monitoring appointment today!  They wanted to make sure my ovaries were suppressed.  Well, they were!  So, as of today I start Estrogen pills (Estrace) and I get to decrease my Lupron to 5 Units!! 

Please help me and pray to the Lupron Gods that my headaches go away due to this little med change.  I thank you.

The next step is to stay on this little salad of medications until the egg retrival! 

I think I can safely say we're about a month away from transfer! 


  1. omg i can't believe you're on estrace already!!! ahhhh almost transfer time :)

  2. Dear Lupron Gods-

    My Ling Lost has enough stress in her life like, oh, you know, gazebos blowing away. I request that you please relieve her of any and all headaches. If not, you should know that I'll be coming after you with some 8 months pregnant with twins whoop-ass.

    Your friend,

  3. Awww, I hope those headaches subside soon for you, my friend. <3

  4. i think you need a "calgon, take me away, moment/prayer"...hang in there. it's all for good/great!!!

  5. Ugh, Lupron is made by Satan, I swear! Hope the estrogen helps out with all the crappy headaches. Just a few more weeks, then you'll be knocked up!

  6. Lupron SUCKS!!!! That is all!! LOL Hang in there girl!

  7. Hope your headaches subside soon!! Hang in there!
