Hi Everyone!

DH and I decided to jump in for august IVF! I am on BCPs now until July 20th. I should get my finalized schedule this Friday. I just can't wait and have to know if anyone else is cycling in August with me!

I am starting to get really worried about the injections and if this is the right thing to do and all of those other things that pop into your head at times like these. So any advice and encouragement would be appreciated!

Good luck to everyone! FX for August BFPs!!!!

Me - 23 DH - 27 TTC #1 since 08/2009 severe MFI, azoo. Starting IVF #1 in August 2011!!!

Hey Jennifer, congrats on the awesome news!!! I'm so happy everything is on track. Good luck with starting your meds on Wednesday.

AFM- Today was my second day doing the suprefact injections in my tummy. It sucks but I can deal with it.

I hope the rest of you are doing well :)

Welcome Ruth!!! Us august cyclers are just full of DH's who have gone thru or are going thru MESA, so if you or your DH have any questions - just ask!!!

I've had similar symptoms from the lupron - the hot flashes and tiredness, but I think I recall it gets better as your body gets adjusted to it. Do you switch sides/areas of your tummy when you do the injections - that can help with the bruising/bleeding. also a little ice beforehand wont hurt either. There definitely isn't much to screw up with lupron - you are doing just fine!! What stims will you be on? Best of luck to you!!! :)

Hello and welcome Ruth, I am Amanda and I am 25 also, my dh is 24yr. Our reason for doing ivf is because of MFI. I used lupron during my first cycle but I didn't have any side effects. I guess your are right there isn't much to screw up just get the meds in :) I agree with Jennifer, do you switch sides when doing the injections? My nurse told me I can ice the area first to ease the sting and you have to push the meds out slowly. I like to massage the area a little afterward too that eases the pain.
I hope the side effects go away quickly. Good luck :)

Hello bkatty, I'm sorry your journey has been such a long one. I have been ttc for 2yrs and I don't know how much longer I can keep sane, so I admire your courage. Good luck and keep us posted :)
