Re: SMC and injectibles

my DH was very nervous about giving me the injections. He did them sometimes but i did them myself alot as well. Make sure the progesterone is warm first of all its much more comfortable. i have a full length mirror in my room i basically just bent over a little aimed and fired. The hesitation is wh...

Re: PCOS Metformin & IVF

although we use it for PCOS metformin can and will cause low blood sugars. so unless you take an extended release version it should almost always be taken multiple times a day. I seem to be the odd ball when it comes to this my RE allowed me to stay on it through the IVF but once i transferred i was...

Re: Anybody feel the same in Bfp cycle as they did in a bfn one.

Ive only done 1 cycle that ended in a bfp. but what i can comment on is the ohss. i was 24 and they retrieved 34 eggs they almost made me freeze all my embryos for fear of ohss. I also was convinced it was a bfn because my mild ohss was resolving and i was feeling better about 5 days after transfer....

Re: subchorionic hematoma

I was diagnosed with it at 9 weeks after some bleeding. however was not put on bedrest i was told there was no real evidence of it helping the situation. The prognosis i believe depends on the size and location of the bleed and if its small its not much of a concern at all. i was told its also more ...

Re: Injections?

the worst part was working up the nerve to do it the first time myself. Im an RN also and after the first time it wasnt bad at all the needles u dont even feel and the meds burn for about a minute. As for the IM progesterone i did convince my husband to do that for me, but hes deathly afraid of need...

Re: OB couldn't find HB with Doppler. I'm Scared!!

i think its a little irresponsible for the OB to create such worry in your mind, i went in for an appointment at 11 wks and was told they wouldnt be able to find it so instead of making me crazy the soonest they check it is 13 weeks. im glad ur RE was able to ease your mind though id def be a little...
