In the mornings, I take Menopur, administered with a syringe. In the evening, I take Gonal-F. It comes pre-loaded, almost like an Epi-Pen. I turn the dial to 150 units, put on a new needle top and inject it in myself. I have been switching sides on my belly with each shot. It really doesn't make a difference, but I like the organization of it all. I follow my Gonal-F with a pill of Dexamethasone.
Viola! That's it. I am doing all of my own shots. A lot of friends have said their husbands do it for them, but with Jason's travel schedule (and the fact that he has a tendency to bruise me), I am on my own.
On Monday, I will take my morning Menopur then head to the CCRM for blood and ultrasound. They will let me know if they are going to increase or decrease my doses. I will then go to CCRM every morning until next Sunday for blood draws and ultrasounds.
No real side effects yet. The shots have a slight burning sensation, but that's all.
