Fertility Medications and the Most Common Side Effects

As a part of the surrogacy process – In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is undergone by the intended mother to grow and retrieve her eggs for fertilization. In sync with the intended mother’s IVF cycle, the surrogate prepares her uterus to receive an embryo transfer with fertility medications.

Fertility Medications

As a part of the IVF Cycle, the intended surrogate uses fertility medications. These medications ensure that the surrogate’s body is hormonally and physically ready to accept the embryo. Fertility medications do have side effects. Knowing what to expect during the IVF process can help you prepare in advance.


Changes in hormone levels can cause your body to retain water, just as it does during your monthly cycle. This can cause a feeling of being bloated, which you may feel or notice in a difference in the way your clothes fit. Drinking extra water can help your body to rid itself of the water it is retaining.

Mood Swings

Mood swings are one of the most commonly reported side effects of fertility medication. You may find that you’re quicker to become angry, or that you become tearful at the simplest things. Being aware that the excess emotions that you’re feeling are the result of hormones can help you to temper your reactions to others.


Headaches are often reported as a side effect from the use of fertility medications. The headaches can vary from mild to severe and can differ for a woman during different cycles. Often, an over the counter pain medication is enough to relieve the pain.

Breast Tenderness

Changes in your breasts are common during fertility treatments. Water retention in the breasts causes discomfort. You may find that during this time your breasts are tender or more sensitive. Wearing a soft, supportive bra can help throughout this process, as well as provide the additional support your breasts need.
