Women who have gone through IVF – what’s your “after” experience?


I’m thinking about donating eggs, which is a bit different than IVF to get pregnant but similar with the injected hormones. My only concern is health effects from the injected hormones – I’m very sensitive to hormonal birth control and worry about potential ovarian hyperstimulation, or effects to fertility/other health issues in the future.

Women who have gone through IVF – what was your experience like during and after health-wise? Have you noticed any negative health effects after your treatments (no matter how long ago they were)?

And what “heads up” would you give to someone who’s going into IVF or egg retrieval?
