    Hi ladies, i am not yet on injections but am currently on clomid and the doctor is now looking at moving to injections.

    I have been on clomid since may last year. It appears that I o but we have only had one successful conception that unfortunately ended in a mc at 5 weeks. I have also been taking metformin for about 7 months.

    I have been diagnosed with PCOS and a bicornuate subseptate uterus (uterus is almost divided in half).

    I am finding the whole experience very daunting and injections confuse me as to how it works and how the control / determine the dosage. Any advice you ladies can give me is very appreciated.

    I am based in Adelaide.

    Welcome Munchkin! Sounds like we have pretty much the same deal with PCOS and a bicornate uterus. This is only my first round of injections but it's basically follicular stimulating hormone your injecting to make follicles with eggs in them grow and mature. With dosage it's a bit like clomid in that you don't know how much you need, do you start out on a low dose and keep going up until you get a response, although you can get over stimulated hence why they monitor you heavily at the start!
    Best of luck!!

    Thanks for the reply littledove :-)

    So do you have the injections everyday or only on certain days in the cycle? Do you have blood monitoring or ultra sounds? Do you do the injections at the clinic?

    I am so sorry for all the questions but I am so relieved that I have found women going through the same process as me. I have found my fs doesnt explain everything to the point that I understand no matter how many questions I ask.

    Hi Munchkin,
    I'm on my second cycle of injections atm. Started cd2 and will continue until I get 1 or 2 good sized follicles (about 12 days or so), then I'll have a trigger shot of hcg to make me ovulate and try catch the egg with normal sex.

    I do the injections myself at home but haven't found them any big deal at all. It's a really simply pen device that you just screw a new little needle tip on each time, dial up your dose, jab it into a pinched roll of fat and push the pen end in.

    My fs said longest a cycle has gone was about 42 days of injections but my first one was only 17 I think? I am monitored with scans. Had one today cd8 had 1 follie at 12mm and I'll have another on fri and hopefully get the trigger over the w/e or early next week. Trigger to ovulation is about 24-40hrs. I've not had any side effects from the injections and really find them much better than clomid.

    Feel free to ask anything else but my main advice is just don't be freaking out about the needles!! Lots of people stress themselves out but honestly once you've done the first one you'll find you don't even feel it and you'll be a pro in no time. It's super easy and the needle is tiny. Good luck!!

    I have a needle phobia too, and my first jab was horrific, I cried and cried and couldn't do it for ages, just couldn't bring myself to stick the needle in. But I forced myself through it and I'm glad I did because it made me realise how easy it is and I didn't even feel the needle. To be honest I think it's actually got me over my phobia!!

    Forgot to add I have internal ultrasounds to monitor my follies during the days I'm injecting, usually only need a couple of scans

    Good question minipolly. So far I haven't even ovulated once so it hasn't really been an issue as yet. I'd try and avoid taking it for blood tests post ovulation... I might google it!

    Just did some reading on the drug and it's definitely NOT safe to use while trying to get pregnant or while pregnant, so probably best avoided. It says it can cause abnormalities in the foetus
