So all my medication arrived today and I'm flabbergasted by the amount of medications and syringes I found in this huge box. I know of 2 women personally who have gone through IVF and my heart hurts they actually did this many times. As I take the next step in this journey with my first IVF cycle (if AF will ever come), I truly wish I had known what they were really going through emotionally, physically, and mentally. Just like many other experiences, we will never know someone else's pain and suffering until we are there ourselves. All we can do is do our best to be supportive and be a good listener - which doesn't seem like enough EVER.
I can't even fathom the financial strain for those who are completely 100% OOP. I'm blown away by my receipt.
Some include their protocol and thought I would include what I am about to start. I'd be interested to know what side effects, if any, you have experienced.
Menopur, Gonal-f RFF Pen 900, Ganirelix 250mcg, baby Asprin, Gonal-f RFF Pen 300, Z Pak, Novarel, Progestrone in Sesame Oil
Best wishes and baby dust to all.
Don't hump it, Love it!
