On January 16th 2019, we started treatment!
So I started on a nasal spray called Buserelin, which was to switch off my ovaries and stop them from producing any eggs. I had to have 2 sniffs 4 times a day for 3 weeks, which was actually quite hard to keep up with at first. 4 times a day really felt like a lot, you have one dose and before you know it, it’s time to have your next dose!
The nasal sprays didn’t have many side effects for me from what I can remember, other that awful nightmares! You know them reeeeaaally vivid nightmares where you wake up out of breath and if your heart beats any faster you’ll go into cardiac arrest?
Yeah, they were really horrible! I actually began to dread going to bed because I knew I would have nightmares all night. But they did stop once my dose was reduced. You can read about the next stage on my next post :).
