No, I haven't had anything other than progesterone since my trigger injection on Sat 13th August (12 days ago).
That is awesome news for you!!! I hope it all runs smoothly for you @AmyEL :-)
So it seems like the Gonal F has made my AF much lighter than normal - in fact I think it's stopping! Normally lasts for a whole 7 days of which 3 are heavy. This time it's stopped on day 4 after starting Gonal F on day 2.
Has anyone else heard of this happening?
Not complaining just surprised
Hi @Waiting to exhale yep this is my first one! I've done a bit of research (online with Dr Google lol) and apparently it can happen. I'll double check with the clinic on Monday when I go in for bloods again but I'm sure it's not a big deal.
@AmyEL I am a bit higher than your dose, on 150 though we'll see if they up it on Monday
Hi all, I'm new here and starting my second IVF cycle tonight! Will be injecting myself with Gonal F and Neupogen (Filgrastim), followed by two more injections added in a few days. I have two additional injections this cycle as compared to my last so I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed (pretty nervous actually). Has any of you injected Neupogen before? I haven't been given any instructions for it whatsoever which I find very shocking considering the thousands we're paying for treatment. Anyway, I guess I'll find info from the Internet as usual good luck to all you super strong women!
Oh and some tips that worked for me last cycle were to leave the injections out for 30 minutes so they reach room temperature. I ice the area to be injected before and after so the pain is a lot less as the area gets numb. And I tell myself I can do this and it's not like I'm going to die, it's only going to sting a little bit and will be over in a few seconds (I like talking to myself to give me strength) Hope this works for you too!
I don't think it hurts at all I pinch the skin & stick it in & hardly feel it @Mongol... Should you be letting it go to room temp? They are pretty careful about keep it refrigerated so I would have that thought that was for a reason?
I've never used those other drugs, only Gonal F & Ovidrel... I'm only doing a low dose FET this round as we have 4 embryos frozen... But I did notice that there are quite detailed instructions in both boxes of drugs I have, perhaps there are some in yours?
