I am now - hopefully - past the half-way point in the down regulation phase. I've been taking the Nafarelin spray for ten days now, and the side effects seem to be kicking in nicely.
I'm getting a lot of headaches and hot flushes (hence the title of this post!). I also feel terribly depressed, and I cry at the least thing. I don't know whether this is because I AM depressed, or whether it's because of the meds - somehow I feel horribly out of control, both of my body and my emotions.
This first phase of the treatment seems to be really dragging - I still have another week to go before our next appointment at the clinic. Hopefully then they will confirm that it's OK to start the stims - maybe then I will start to feel like a bit more is happening.
