Hi everyone :) I am in middle of an IVF cycle right now - on day 7 of injectables (bravelle and menopur) - we had our first ultrasound yesterday a.m. and he counted 8 follicles with a few other smaller ones that may or may not do anything. That number was disappointing to me but I guess at 38 that is what I can expect..... My doctor seemed happy with that number so I guess I should be too.
My question is - I am injecting 4 bottles of bravelle and one of menopur every night with 1 mil. of saline ....by the time I am finished with mixing all 5 bottles in with the saline, there is almost always significantly less then 1 mil in the needle (like maybe 3/4 full)....What am I doing wrong or is this normal? I asked the nurse yesterday and she didn't seem too concerned - just said maybe add some more saline before I start mixing but I am panic stricken that I am losing 1/2 the medication that I am supposed to inject and obviously then not getting the full benefits of them. If anyone has any thoughts on this PLEASE jump in and tell me - I had a complete meltdown last night due to the stress of it all and every night I think, I will get it right, but nope, last night it seemed worse. I have done a superovulation cycle before without this problem but only had 2 bottles to mix in there so it didn't seem to create this problem.
Thanks in advance for any help or insight anyone might have :)
