    I guess PCOS would present differently in all of us? Plus I have endo/Aden, so maybe they change things? I think with me it was also age-related (I'm almost 43).

    Morning ladies, for those of you doing clexane injections and have a lovely bruised stomach, just wondering are you using anything like vitamin e cream on it to reduce the bruising/scar tissue at all? I normally use arnica cream when I do kickboxing for my bruises but don't wanna use that whilst pregnant. Thanks in advance 😆

    Hi @Velvet16 thanks for your message. No I've not been icing it. Might try that this arvo when i get home. Just noticing over last few days that it's getting a bit harder to push needle in some places where bruises had been.

    Stupid bloody Clexane needles!!!!

    As @Maxwellsmum said, try icing up the area 3-5 mins prior to injecting. If it feels a bit stingy afterwards as well, just ice it again for a couple of mins. I found that helped minimise the bruising for me and take the "ouch" factor out also

    Emla cream is a topical anaesthetic cream numbs the area prior to doing the injection, blood test etc but as far as I'm aware should be used with caution or only if necessary in pregnancy. Check with Wazza/one of the nurses if in doubt

    ETA- I used to use a bag of frozen peas wrapped in a tea towel to numb my stomach.

    I can't remember Luv but can tell you that Wazza will split your FSH dose and get you take half in the morning and half at night as he believes it promotes more even and uniform follicle growth.

    So, if you were on 400IU a day for eg, you'd do 200IU in the morning and 200IU at night. I did them 12 hrs apart though there's no hard and fast rule. Doing them a bit earlier or later won't hurt or harm anything
