hi everyone. newbie to ivf and bubhub here. i just wanted to ask the following. i am currently on day 7 of gonal f and day 3 of orgalutran and was just wondering if anyone felt any different on the drugs? i had slightly aching ovaries on day 1 of orgalutran but not really anything else to speak of. was wondering if i was meant to feel any different on these or not. thanx everyone.

I didn't notice any huge changes with either of my cycles, which is a bit of a let down after all the anticipation! Just felt really tired. It doesn't mean there's nothing going on though. On my 1st cycle we got 6 eggs, and 19 on the 2nd. I probably had more physical symptoms in the 1st one!
Remember, a higher egg count isn't always best, it's the quality of the eggs that matters.
Good luck, hope you have lovely perfect eggs!

Hi Twiggy - Welcome to Bub Hub.
Like katherinelouise, i didn’t notice huge physical changes at all with my cycles except the tiredness and after i did the trigger injection i was quite bloated and had sore ovaries.
My first cycle i got 13 eggs and then on my third cycle i got 25 and felt more in my first cycle but i think that was because i was so nervous about it all and was really paying attention to what was happening. I remember going into a scan on my third cycle really worried that nothing was happening because i felt absolutely nothing. Then was blown away when i seen how many follicles i had but had no physical symptoms at all.
All the best with your cycle.
