Most medications come with some unwanted side effects. Fertility medications are no different. While mild side effects may occur with these medications, most are not serious enough to interfere with the day-to-day life of an IVF patient. More serious side effects have been known to occur, though only in a small percentage of patients.

Some side effects are to be expected with these fertility medications. The mild side effects are uncomfortable for patients, but usually do not require medical attention. As a patient’s body adjusts to the treatment, these mild side effects may subside. However, if you experience any severe reactions like rash, hives or swelling of the face and/or tongue, any problems breathing, vomiting, intense pain or any other serious side effects, you should seek medical attention right away.
