So…I just finished up my first series of post-peak HCG shots to take care of that PMS and type-III luteal defect and I’m finding that I feel worse than normal. Like, way worse. Like, completely not in control of my normally quick emotional response to the extent that I have to put a muzzle on myself or leave the room to keep from punching people. I have been pretty resistant to starting any type of fertility treatment because of the side effects of taking all these drugs and sometimes I already feel like it takes all my control to not lash out at the world, so I’m curious if this is just me or if other people have felt the same. I thought what I had read and been told about HCG is that its supposed to make PMS symptoms better, not worse. Instead I just feel amped up, shaky, super fast heartbeat, and really aggressive.
My husband informed me that body builders use HCG to pump up so it basically acts like a steroid, which explains my quick-to-anger-ness.
(Which might also explain the chest acne, haven’t had that in years.)
(He also asked me not to punch him).
I thought HCG was like, baby fertility drugs?
So, dear internets-who-have-HCG-experience, is this normal? Did/do you have similar responses to HCG? Am I just crazy?
