    It absorbs easily just tastes like metallic water.

    For all those taking Iron (in whatever form), just remember to try and take the iron supplement with Vitamin C (tablet or OJ) as it is needed to ensure Iron is absorbed most effectively.

    Yep, my iron tablet has vitamin C in it. I think its called Ferro-Guard or something like that.

    Hi everyone
    Looks like I'm a week or so behind here due to being super busy, hopefully catch up soon but..... Just a quick question trying to organise pre drugs with my doctor. She said lots of choices not on offer here but ...
    1 once of injection triptorelin
    2 daily injections Lupron (~$280)
    3 synerel nasal spray here 200mcg dose but sa says 2mg daily dose (is the dose okay- will obviously also check with cfc)
    She has left the ball in my court 😟as to which so... Any thoughts, needles and injections don't bother me, is there one choice better than the others ??
    Many Thanks in advance

    I did daily Lupron as I hate Synarel. Synarel is not cheap but SA dose was double what I had here. Lupron was very easy. I'd suggest phoning around pharmacies because pricing varies markedly along with time frames to get drugs in from supply companies. There was almost $100 dofference for the Lupron. Chemist Warehouse was much cheaper yhan other pharmacies for progynova too.

    It's really up to you. Injections don't upset taste etc. I'd never cope with taking all that Synarel to the clock.

    I did the once off depot injection. It was so much easier as you don't have yo do anything daily, just inject once and forget. I bought mine from fertility2u.com as you can't get it in Aus.

    Default Egg Donation in South Africa #10

    I have done both the daily injection and the synarel in different cycles. Neither really bothered me in terms of side effects. I had a couple of headaches early on with both of them but neither lasted long.
    The problematic issue with the daily injection is that you need to keep the vial refrigerated. This creates some stress when travelling (generally and to SA). It can be overcome with icepacks etc but you do worry a lot that something will 'happen' to the drug to make it ineffective. This needle still needs to be timed (taken at the same time everyday) but as long as your ok with needles and administering them wherever (including the plane or a public amenity while going over to SA)then it's all good.

    The synarel (nasal spray) I personally found easier to administer, particularly if you are also doing an immune protocol. While I have no issues with needles towards the end when you have been doing them for awhile and you have multiple types to administer, it does play on you a bit (well it did for me ). The synarel does leave a yucky metallic taste in the back of your throat for about 5 mins after taking it but this can be easily overcome with either a peppermint/lolly or chewing gum.
    As far as cost goes - I think they can be much the same. From memory I payed about $120/bottle for the synarel (you will need 2 bottles) and about $300 for the needle. I have seen the synarel cheaper online ($40) but I didn't buy it this way.

    Hi @ferngirl,

    i went for Synarel, my stim cycles here have all been down reg, so I am used to Synarel and I know it works for me. It can be hard to track down so you might need to call around a bit. The dose is right, it took me a while to get my head around it, one is quoting the dose, the other is quoting the concentration of the spray. I got it from Chemist Warehouse for $120 a bottle.

    The Progynova was much easier, about $11 a packet of 56.

    Ferngirl - my 5c worth... I did Syneral and had no hassles with that (headaches for a few days but that was it). Interestingly I didn't have any issues getting it but I am in/around the CBD area so that might have had something to do with it. It is also worthwhile shopping around as I have paid between $119 and $135 for it: claimable from Private health Insurance if you have pharmacy coverage but still on principle I would rather pay less than more. If you go the syneral route, get the 2nd bottle well before you need it as you get no warning that the bottle is nearing empty and it can be a rude shock when that spray 'doesn't quite feel right' and you realise you need the next one !
