    Best wishes! It can take a couple of cycles to work out your individual reactions but here’s hoping it’s all manageable. Sometimes you don’t get nausea at all (I didn’t) but best to take the anti-nausea meds, just in case! There are ways of reducing the impact if you do feel unwell, so always ask.
