30 Day Infertility Blog Challenge: Day 17

17.Tell us your funniest Clomid/Femara/Injectibles mood-swing story. If you don’t have one, tell us your funniest general infertility drug story.

At one point, during my stims (Gonal-F) last year...well, every day, really, I cried.  Not upset.  Just cried.

The one day in particular that I remember I was at work.  And for half an hour straight I had been weeping.  On the phone.  While talking to customers.  AND IT WOULDN'T STOP.  I just sat there while tears poured down my face.

My coach eventually came over and asked if she could do anything, if I was alright.  Everyone I worked with was well aware of what I was going through, and she told me she wasn't sure she should ask or let it slide.  And all I could do was laugh.  And cry.  Totally irrational.  But completely out of control.  

I felt sooooo badly for the guy who sat next to me during that time (and the beginning of my pregnancy).  Hi, my name is Genevieve and I am a hormonal and anxiety-ridden basket case.  Poor guy.  I cried ALLLLLL THE TIME.  But that day was out of control.  

Oddly, instead of being frightened, he was totally chill, and spent the time available between calls trying to make me smile :-)  I am very grateful for that!  (Not to mention for the times he rubbed my back while I was dry-heaving on phone calls, between phone calls, while he was on phone calls.  OMG, could you ask for a better teammate????)

My other favorite part of injections was my poor friend who had to do my PIO shots every Saturday for me as my Hubby was working.  Poor thing...the first time I had my head craned over my shoulder, holding her hand to point the syringe and needle in the right direction, LOL. 


  1. These stories make me so glad I avoided those injectible hormone cocktails.

  2. Oh, Lord! This makes me scared to even consider going this route. I'm an emotional basketcase without injectibles, lol! Provera, Aygestin, Clomid...those were bad enough. My problem, though, is I get really, really, REALLY angry! I cry, too, but it's usually because I'm so damn angry. I'm going to be fun to be around when we start treatment back, lol! Poor Hubs =D

  3. You must work in a call center. Oh the fun I could get up to between calls. I missmy old work *People not the job* If I had to do a cycle while working in a call center I probably would've killed someone.


Whip me, beat me, take away my charge card. Or just leave a comment. Whichever works best for you :)
