Today was the third injection. It was fairly easy, just as last night. I sat the Gonal-F and Lupron out of the fridge for 30 mins to warm to room temp.
I mixed the Lupron into the Menopur vial (1) , then drew out 450 units of Gonal-F with a insulin syringe and added it to the Menopur vial (1). I added the 1 cc of liquid that came with the Menopur to the vial and twisted the bottle slightly to mix it. I then withdrew all the liquid from Menopur vial (1) and injected it into the second vial of Menopur. I then withdrew the meds from the vial and injected into my previously iced skin on the left side of my tummy. (last night I did the right). After wiping another area with an alcohol pad, I injected the Lovenox. I then took the Prednisone. VOILA ~ All done !
I applied a bit of Ambesol on a sterile gauze and then put an ice pack on the area for 30 mins.
Last night, I developed the “Lupron” dull headache. I took 1000mg of Tylenol and it did the trick. I have noticed that I cry easily when watching tv shows. I hope this is as bad as it gets. I can not sit and cry all night while watching movies LOL.
Tomorrow morning is my first monitoring appointment. I guess they will tell me tomorrow when to start Femera.
