 5  IVF bloating and fullness WOW! I stimmed for 11 days and at 38 yrs old produced 27 eggs! Got 4, 6 day blasts, transferred 2 and put 2 in cryo. Lost the first 2, thawed the other 2 and now have perfectly heathy 7 yr old twin boys. Do yourself a favor, use Antagon for downreg b4 transfer. Lupron is horrid. F 45 11 days

 3  IVF nothing at first,then growing pressure from follicles,day 7 suddenly vomiting, belching,burning sensation of skin. Nurse said it is normal reaction to estrogen. Doctors overstimulated me as I went from 95 to 11,000 on my estrogen count within 9 days (max should be 4,000-7,000). Estrogen will peak in in further 7 days but no tests to be done to know. I have 9 + 6 follicles to be retrieved so their interest in my sky-high estrogen level and its side-effects is over. It did what it was suppose to do stimulated ovaries to pop follicles. I am worried about long term effect, as estrogen exposure is linked with breast cancer. Of course I found it out towards end of IVF as I started to vomit and took interest in holistic medicine oppionion. F 38 10 days
