What is Lupron?

Description: Lupron is part of the process to stimulate multiple eggs for assisted reproductive technologies.

How It Works: Lupron is administered as a subcutaneous injection using insulin syringes. For the role it plays in assisted reproductive technologies, Lupron is used to reduce the amount of estrogen and testosterone in the body.

Potential Side Effects: Side effects that may occur includes hot flashes or sweating, mood swings, nausea, vomiting, breast tenderness, insomnia, headaches, and injection site reaction (redness, itching, and swelling at the injection site). That explains the bumps!!

This is my morning ritual.
