Obligatory IVF Medication shot. They even gave me a bio hazardous medical waste container, which is a first.
I’m on Day 2 of Stims, technically Cycle Day 2. I do 225 IU of Follistim in the morning and 75 IU of Menopur at night. So far I feel a little drugged, headachy and cranky, but I am also on my period. So I’m doing incredibly well considering that I’m on my period and getting 2 injections a day of hormones.
Ryan is a licensed paramedic, so the injections are a walk in the park for him. I joke that we are the best equipped couple ever to walk the IVF plank; Ryan with a medical background and myself with a finance background. What else do you need to navigate this world, other than a gift for needle handling and serious budgeting skills? We got it in spades.
