Brief Answer:
No concerns at this time

Detailed Answer:
Hello, I'm Dr. Branch, thanks for using Ask a Doctor. As you know, the medications you have been injected with can cause drastic changes in your body, and I wouldn't be surprised by feeling tired and drowsy afterwards. This should improve over the next few days. Furthermore, there are no serious side effects from these medications that would be suggested by feeling tired and drowsy. Firmagon in particular can often cause fatigue.

One serious side effect from the estrogen to look out for would be a blood clot. If you notice any leg swelling or pain, make sure to be evaluated as soon as you can.

I hope that helps, please let me know if you have any other questions or anything else you are concerned about, I would be glad to help.

Brief Answer:
All good

Detailed Answer:
These are also probably side effects from the medications, but nothing serious. You can take Paracetamol or Ibuprofen for the pain.
