Yearningheart - I saw your post about how difficult the menopour injection was for you Has anyone suggested heat or cold to you? As you know I haven't got this far myself yet but I saw a thread somewhere else on this (sorry I can't remember where) and there seemed to be a divide about who preferred what, presumably everyone is slightly different. Some posters were advocating to ice the area first then put something warm on afterwards if it still stings and others said that the ice made it worse but that they found warming the area first helped. Not sure that is much help to be honest but if it's hurting anyway it might be worth trying the heat or ice. Hope it gets easier for you.

lizzie - Oh thanks for that advice! Yep I will try that, anything is worth a try for me. Yesterday was my second day of Menopur and it killed, my tears just rolled from my eyes and my husband kept saying thats it done. It for few seconds only but those few seconds hurt like mad. I will try ice method today and lets see if that does any good.

Hope the ice has helped, if not try the heat tomorrow. I know it's only for a short while but it has to be much better if you don't have to dread it!

Lizzie - Guess what?! I just had the Menopur injection now. I tried heating the area instead of the ice since ice was not ready and it was much much better than yesterday. Yes there was a little pain but not so bad. I think I will continue the heat method and see. Thanks so much!! x

YearningHeart - I'm on the Gonal F injection & it hurts slighlty when the liquid goes in but not half as much as the one your on from the sounds of it. I didn't realise how many different types of IVF drugs there were until i started reading all the threads.
I'm having mu next scan on Friday to see if everything is going as it should after that if its all going as plan i should be having my eggs harvested next week. It all seems so really now & i'm begining to get a tad nervous.
How is everyone else doing?

emz - Ohhh how exciting!!! Looking forward to hearing your updates. How many days has it been you taking Gonal- F? I found Gonal-F much much better than Menopur injection and yes same here, I had no idea how many types of meds they have for IVF. At first I thought everyone has the same meds in IVF but everyones meds varies.

I dont know if this would help, but whenever I would take Gonal-F I would always lie on the bed on the side and then my husband would inject it on the side of my thigh and I would change the leg and location everyday. Once though I was sitting on the sofa and my husband did the Gonal-F injection and it hurt a lot so I made sure since then I would always be lying on the bed or so.

Hope everyone is doing well. xxx

Yearningheart, so excited you've started stimms, I cant wait to start
Good advice from lizzie, I'm remembering all the good advice you ladies have!

Emz, good luck on Friday, does it seem like it's all going quick for you?

Afm, no appointment yet but they might be waiting for my last blood test results, lh/fsh which they should have end of this week, ive had them before and they were fine but they wanted a more in date result

star - Yeah the advices do help. During my first IVF I used to ask so many questions and the ladies on this forum would really help. It just helps to speak to those with experience I guess. Hey dont worry your time will come fast, I remember when I used to read other peoples updates I used to think Ohhhh why is my process so slow! lol

Yearningheart - I've been injecting for 6 days now & i seem to be ok doing it into my tummy. I do have a small bruise on one side so i've moved back to the other side for a few days. The ladies in the clinic did say that it might bruise so not to worry to much about it.
Did you feel really tired all the time whilst doing this cos i think i could quite easily sleep for England at the moment lol

Star25 - When we first started being seen at the Fertility clinic everything seemed to be so slow & we kept having to wait 3 - 6 months for everything but since being referred for IVF in Jan it has all happened really quickly & i can't quite believe that next week they will be egg collecting.
Fingers crossed you hear something soon xx
