    Good to know Beatrix! Thanks.

    Although so far I have had headaches on and off most of today as well as being really light headed. So I may not be one of the ones that gets away with no symptoms!

    Clucky14 the wait for af is awful! I know exactly how you feel. Mine started and then stopped and took a couple of days for proper bleeding to start. So frustrating. I hope it comes nice and early for you!! Don't worry about the pain with the needles too much. I was pretty freaked out about it when the needle was right there in front of me and the nurse was just kind of like "ok, now stick it in." Ha.. easier said than done! But in all seriousness I hardly felt it! So try and be brave
