    Default Reactions from IVF medication?

    Hi ladies, just a Q to see if any of you have had reactions from IVF medication - I'm due to trigger later tonight and had my last orgalutran this morning - it's given me a pimply rash over my chest and back. I am slightly dizzy too. I rang my nurse and she was concerned - she said if the rash spreads or I have difficulty breathing to go to hospital. It hasn't changed from this morning so I don't think it will... Has this happened to anyone?

    Yes I've had something similar a couple of times right before trigger, my FN said it was pretty common, and it went away after EPU. . Good luck.

    Slightly different reaction here. First ivf round the skin in my armpits and groin blistered and pealed away. NOT pleasant. Oddly the ivf clinic said they had never seen that reaction but when I went to a random, though very nice, gp at a bulk billing clinic the first thing he asked me was are you on any fertility drugs as he had done a residency in OB/GYN in the uk and this was a common side affect of excessive estrogen.

    hope it clears up soon
