does no side effects mean drugs not working?

I'm on my first IVF cycle - long protocol bursellain and gonal f injections. on day 5 of stimm had blood test and clinic called to say to increase my gonal from 150 to 225. I am now on day 7 and have my day 9 scan on tuesday. I am worried because i have had no side effects at all, i know that may sound a bit crazy, but i am just thinking that maybe it means the drugs are not working.

Hi LGC

Try not to worry hon, i had absolutely no side effects during down regulation and none during stimulation phase either, (only slight bloating towards EC as my follies grew).
:goodluck: with the treatment, wishing you all the best!!!

Hi LGC,

I had lots of side effects, and I did respond fairly well, but I think the side effects were more an indication of my body being very sensitive, and not handling drugs too well. I'd take it as a good sign that you handle the drugs well.

Good luck!

Hiya,

I had no side effects at all, they increased my dose during treatment and now I have a beautiful daughter :-)

Good luck!
