@emski71 why b12 bi lingual and not plain old b12? The chemist didn't have any and asked why it had to be bi lingual which made me wonder...?
That's what the haematologist told me to take specifically not sure why...I just do as I'm told!
Feeling like utter crap today, started bleeding last night and total AF type cramps and aches today...started all my meds today though. Double checked my hormones on Mon via bt and am down regulated ...I think my body is just rebelling. Dr Le Roux isn't concerned and said the estrogen will stop the bleeding in a day or two, I guess its the equivalent of a lucrin/lupron breakthrough bleed, never had it on synarel though.
emski72 - getting close now !!!!!!
How exciting. Hope you feel better soon..
Lol... Just checked and its actually sub lingual so no wonder they gave you a funny look oops... here you go...courtesy of wiki
Sublingual administration has certain advantages over oral administration. Being more direct, it is often faster,[quantify] and it ensures that the substance will risk degradation only by salivary enzymes before entering the blood******, whereas orally administered drugs must survive passage through the hostile environment of the gastrointestinal tract, which risks degrading them, either by stomach acid or bile, or by the many enzymes therein, such as monoamine oxidase (MAO). Furthermore, after absorption from the gastrointestinal tract, such drugs must pass to the liver, where they may be extensively altered; this is known as the first pass effect of drug metabolism. Due to the digestive activity of the stomach and intestines and the solubility of the GI tract, the oral route is unsuitable for certain substances, such as salvinorin A .
Luca! Congratulations, she is gorgeous.
Emski, good luck with your cycle. I would transfer two. I had two perfect embryos, became pregnant with a singleton and miscarried. The prospect of twins is daunting but, would you go back to SA for one poor quality embryo?
Leyshoja, Emski gave you some good advice. Most of my friends and family knew why I was going to South Africa. I told acquaintances that I was meeting some friends from Australia there and that ended all the questions. Or you could say that you have heard great things about the food and wine country. When I go back for my frozen embryo transfer, I am going stealth as I am going for less than a week.
Thanks emski, that makes sense. The pharmacist seemed to know what I was talking about but was probably polite enough to not correct me - how embarrassing lol.
That's a good idea Canuck, thanks. Stealth I like it.
I really could have done without this bonus AF... I'm hoping its the last one for 9 months.
That's what I keep saying to myself - hopefully no AF for 9 months
