    Default Side effects with Gonal-f?

    I started my first IVF cycle yesterday on 175 of Gonal-f. I survived the self-injecting so far (though the first one was terrifying!) but have had a huge headache for the last 2 days. I have a history of migraine so am hoping that this is all it is, but worried that it might be a side effect from the meds. Has anyone else experienced this? Not sure I can cope with feeling like this day after day, not that there is much choice but it certainly isn't helping my already very real anxiety. Would love to hear from anyone.....

    I didnt get the headaches, but had nausea, bloating and the whole emotional roller coaster. But Ive heard headaches ate pretty common. Are you taking anything for the migraines?

    Hi littlehead, I had headaches from gonal f (I get migraines too). Best thing I can suggest to you is to drink HEAPS of water. I really didn't want to take anything for the headaches with everything I was having for IVF, so I found that keeping hydrated was the best way I could keep them at a bearable level.

    Good Luck!!
