Hi Ness, very glad to hear you are giving up sugar and gluten, as well as all the rest! I gave up sugar for the past 4 months, on this cycle I had no side effects whatsoever from the IVF drugs. I definitely put that down to my hormones balancing from no sugar, I used to feel my insulin go up when I was hungry and I'd get all shaky now I just feel hungry. I also felt tile cr*p for the 1 st 2 months after giving it up ( I used to eat chocolate like it was a meal and sweets after every meal) but after 2 months I felt awesome, although maybe it was dhea, but I really think no sugar has helped no end.
Are you gluten intolerant? My sister went through IVF, she has celiac disease and is very strict about gluten, she also needed clexane post ET due the gluten intolerance being an autoimmune disease.
Good luck with giving stuff up, it's hard but needed when you get that BFP anyway!
