GS meds before & after transfer will they make me sick?

If I become a GS, how likely is it that the meds I will have to take before & after transfer will make me sick to my stomach? I have taken progesterone cream & pills before & they both made me really sick to my stomach. I tend to be somewhat sensitive to medications. Do the injections hurt? What side effects might I experience?

Thank you!

The meds have a different affect on everyone as an individual. The progesterone tends to make most people feel a bit if they were pregnant....within a few days of starting the therapy, whether it be in intramuscular injection form, suppository or gel form...whatever.

The injections themselves in the beginning don't hurt, but once you are several weeks in to them, the general consensus is that the lumps that the progesterone in oil causes are a bit painful and uncomfortable.

If you have sensitivities to medications I'd do a lot of research before jumping in. If you do become pregnant as a GS, you need to keep in mind that you will most likely be on some form of added estrogen and progesterone for 10-12 weeks in to the pregnancy.

Hope that helps!
