DH and I went for our injection training yesterday. It’s really frustrating that all the appointments take about 20 minutes, but they can’t/won’t schedule them all in one day.Our training was pretty straightforward. I will be on 125 units of Puregon, and 75 units of Menopur to begin with. Then I will be taking Orgalutran, I won’t know the dosage until later on in the cycle. Pregnyl will be my trigger shot. If I get a BFP, then I will be on Endometrin 3 times a day until week 8.
The nurse went over my schedule again. I will stop BCP on March 1, and go in for my baseline on March 5. We can’t order drugs online in Canada, so the in-house pharmacy will be supplying all my medication. I will pick up my medication on March 5. I start my meds on March 6, and go in for my first monitoring appointment on March 9.
When I practiced putting the needles together, and mixing the meds, I was already shaking. I can’t imagine how I will be when it’s the real deal. Thank goodness DH was there, and hopefully he was paying attention! Haha.
I didn’t walk away empty handed today. I was given my syringes for the Menopur, the case and needles for the Puregon, some alcohol swaps, a box of Q-Caps, and a sharps container. I’m excited to get this going!
I never had any side effects with the many different types of BCP I’ve been on, so I’m not overly sensitive, but are there any side effects I should know about with these drugs?
