I started the Orgalutran yesterday...It's a little bigger than the gonal-f but only stings a little bit. I read horror stories and was so scared. Was all for nothing. Good luck x
Yep so I checked with the Nurse and she said it's normal that there's a drop left over, she said sometimes as you withdraw the needle a drop might be left on your skin too, also normal.
So that's handy to know.
Went to the counselling appointment today which was good, just a chance to download all this stuff without poor old DH having to listen to it.
I'm in such a daze at the moment being so preoccupied with IVF. Nearly fell over in the bath this morning and I'm finding the smallest things make me really cranky. I think that's more stress than the hormones though.
Afm- EPU went well 7 eggs collected... 3 look really good... Others a bit on the young side, but they may mature before the ICSI... Using high calcium medium... So hopefully that will help as well... Any luck transfer will be on Saturday...
But will wait to hear...
@cheekyhumour welcome hun and great egg haul
@Biscotti71 sorry to hear hun, look after yourself. Hopefully your fs can have some answers for you
@BabyOB I'm super nervous about doing the Orgalutran injections lol I start next week I think
@ScubaGal glad you got some reassurance about the gonal f, I only picked mine up today may I ask what is your dosage? Mine is 200iu. Hope the counselling helps
@Soques great haul hun, now grow lil embies. Fingers crossed for great a fertilisation rates hun
AFM: had Appt with FN this morning got the usual paperwork, also collected my gonal f injections. Antibiotics to take for after EPU. awaiting AF arrival Tuesday next week to begin.
One thing that concerned me was the FN told me that my FS doesn't like to do monitoring by bloods during cycle??? Hmmm I requested to at least have my progesterone check as last cycles I had really low levels. May I ask all what do you ladies pay per stim cycle?? I was given an eating of $13k for our stim.
Hope everyone is doing well
Not in the best mindset tonight
ah well it's not over til tomorrow when we get the fertilization result I guess.
@babygirll7 thanks for comment was really worried about orgalutran to but just had a few little bouts of nausea was advised to drink lots of water to help flush through .I was really glad they did my bloods as I was lacking something to assist eggs and ended up with extra medication /injection
