    Volpa, I did on my last cycle w/ Factor V (hetero) and had clexane from the day prior to transfer. First BFP ever... was a dodgy embryo though hence the MC. I'm back on it now for my donor cycle. I think it mafe all the difference for me along with an immune protocol.

    @emski72
    Just read your post re clexane and saw your next FET is coming up VERY soon. Best of luck!!

    I start clexane tomorrow as I have Protein S deficiency (another clotting disorder). I begin taking the pill tomorrow and am not suppose to due to disorder... so the way to overcome it is to take clexane. I'm not having EPU until mid July so will be going through box after box of the horrible things.

    Unfortunately, my clinic only does EPU 3 days a fortnight so they have to put you on the pill for timing. I did it the same way you did for our first try.

    I ended up calling the clinic and have put EPU back 2 weeks to avoid so many extra days of the pill and clexane. Should be 2-3 weeks less doing it this way. I'm concerned with being over suppressed so although it's 'another' two weeks, I think it's better in the long run.

    Well that's something I guess, I'll be very glad to stop Synarel!

    How many sleeps until you fly out now @emski72? I've just found out I'm a carrier for two genes of MTHFR thus going to be using Clexane from the day before embryo transfer. I've read the injections are a b*tch. Or maybe that's an understatement. Any tips on how best to inject them to minimise their horridness?

    leaving this Wed arvo so not long. I've been on clexane since the 13th May now pretty much. I thought I had the magic bullet for bruising but looked at my tummy and I'm black and blue all over so maybe not. I'm ok with the bruising, I just don't like it when it stings. I inject very slowly and if it is stinging at the beginning I pull the needle out and turn the needle slightly... there is an angle where you get minimal stinging.

    @emski72 Only 3 more days til transfer, exciting!! How are you feeling now that your over in CT?
    So if it's stinging, pull the needle fully out and adjust the angle? Also do you know what the average cost of Clexane is?

    Hi ...yes excited now but nervous it might not work.
    I've found with the clexane do the alcohol swab and let that dry then start the injection really slowly if its stinging stop, take the needle off, turn 180° and start again, it won't stop bruising but it will stop stinging. I should pay attention to the way the needle is sitting, but by that stage I just want it done!
