Hey chicks,



So my RE wants me to do clomid days 3-7 & then get a one time injectible shot of either bravelle or menopur on day 9. She says that will help counteract lining issues....



I think I'm gonna give it a shot. Ever heard of this? Thoughts?



thx

I also had to do the stomach injections with gestational diabetes. You get used to it.

I am of no help at all, although the needle sounds much like what I used for my insulin when I had gestational diabetes. I have issues with needles, and even I managed to do those injections! The needle is so incredibly small that you hardly even feel it, and it sound like what you will be using is the same so I am sure you will manage just fine! I really hope this works and gives you the perfect boost! :-)

sounds like it will speed up the pre ovulation part. I think that should give you a better balance between progesterone and estrogen. just a thought. who knows! -martha

Thx Pix. The nurse showed me how to do it and I am going to try to do it myself. I do it on day 9, so 1 week from today. I start the clomid in the morning.

it's the world's thinnest needle and you put it into the fat of your thigh or stomach.

I'm the biggest scaredy cat of all and I did the follistim with pretty much no problem.

Jeanne, it's really easy and the needles are so small that you barely feel it.
