Lupron - Day 1

Oh here are the pictures of my med's that were delivered on Saturday for my first IVF round. I figured it seems like a ritual for everyone to post their med's picture when they arrive so here are mine..not too bad ha?


I take the gauze out, the alcohol sheets and the Lupron..I open the Lupron and look at it..maybe I didn't double check things correctly? Its only one vial of solution? But, I see I'm taking only 10ml..but still looks fishy... I read the directions a few times to make sure that I am doing it right...wouldn't want to mess this up!

Seems pretty easy - I'm no stranger to mixing my own cocktails! I mix it, get the gauze ready and wipe the alcohol pad on my thigh and squeeze...SOMETHING MUST BE WRONG - it didn't hurt and was wayyyy to easy...Is it because its not like there is a lot of solution in there? I don't know...seemed way to simple..BUT, the solution was in there and I followed the Ill TAKE IT!

First day of Lupron done..The count down now begins...

  7. Hi Melissa,

    I am from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Just surfing the internet trying to decide if I should proceed with yet another IUI or take that giant leap into the IVF world. Your story was exactly what I needed (it also helped that we have practically the identical fertility history). Reading your blog has inspired me. I now know what I need to do. THANKS!!
