    Comment:
    I cannot say that this drug has been effective because I am just in the beginning stages of my infertility treatment. However, the only side effect I seem to be experiencing is fatigue and as of recently, heartburn. I was very nervous about injecting a medication into myself, but I found it very simple to do and I was not sore from it either. I have been happy with my experience overall.

    I am on day 3 of a 14 day cycle of lupron for an ivf cycle. so far I've noticed a bit more hair loss, and it burns a little with mild itchiness that goes away. I'm glad it's sub-q and not IM...it's not intolerable but wish there was a patch for it!

    I have experienced a lot of fatigue, a headache lasting a couple days, an upset stomach/diarrhea in the evenings, and mildood swings.No symptoms that were major and nothing that made me want to stop taking the mediciation. It is part of my IVF cycle/treatment and I will only need to be on this medication for about 10-15 days. 3-4
