How do HCG shots make you feel? I am nauseaus, have no appetite, and feel depressed...doc says it's the increase in progesterone. I am popping Pepcid ACs 4x/day and forcing myself to eat. And moping around. The only thing different this month is those shots so I'm assuming that's the cause. I wanted to lose a few pounds but now that I have, I don't think it'd be healthy for me to lose any more. And I'm almost never depressed so that's weirding me out. Do these symptoms go away? When?

Yep-those hormones will screw with you big time! The HCG mimics pg, so you get all tose fun side effects. If you are pregnant, I gues they won't go away, but if you are not, it definitely gets better as it leaves your systemme-35(ish) dh-35

Well, I must add that I really didnt have any side effects or feel anything out of the ordinary. My dose was 10,000 units. Im hoping that when we do get our BFP...that means I wont have any MS! Wishful thinking huh!

S-I-C-K as a DOG!! That's how! My very first cycle I took Novarel and literally was deathly ill for 2 weeks. Then I took Ovidrel and wasn't as sick. The third time it was 10,000 units of hcg and I was a-ok. I'm thinking my body got used to it. Who knows but OMG was I sick! Pregnant-sick just felt like puking all day long!

i got my first HCG shot 500mg on Tuesday. I am so sick, i am not very nauseous but i feel very bloated and really full that's why i have no appetite, but i make myself eat. I also feel very constipated, not sure if it's HCG, IUI or injections though. Feel better.
REMEMBER WHAT WOULD NOT WE DO TO HAVE A LITTLE ONE, RIGHT?

I was just very bloated and crampy feeling with the HCG shots. But all the hormones and stress can play a big part in this. Good luck to you!

I get all of the mentioned below and sore breast. I hate the stuff. It takes about a week for it to wear off.
