Has anyone else experienced extreme fatigue/exhaustion while taking Gonal-F? I just started my first cycle with it for trying for baby #2, and am on 200 units. I started on Monday and I’ve been noticeably more and more fatigued. Today at work I can barely keep my eyes open (but I slept last night). It’s difficult to function feeling like this, especially because I have a 19 month old so after a full day’s work I go home and want to play with him but physically feel like I can barely stay awake.

anyone? This cycle I’ve been on 400 iu and the exhaustion came back the last few days to the point I am passing out as soon as I get home from work for the entire night (we’re talking falling asleep at 5 p.m. and sleeping until morning-13 hours).

i took gonal F when i did my IUI cycles and don’t remember having any side effects from the meds.
good luck with #2!
i am 22w with #2 from our FET. we did PIO and I found the IM PIO shots more physically demanding than my IVF cycle for DS. i also find myself my more tired overall, but that is because i’m running after my 16 month old.
