I thought exactly the same but no they aren't too bad. Also there are YouTube videos you can watch and if you have instructions enclosed they are quite easy to follow xx

All I got was menopur, cetrotide, pesseries and the trigger injection. The fertility nurse showed us how to do the injections too and hubby does all that coz I can't stand injections xx

It is al a bit daunting, my trigger was Gonasi, I'm guessing that's what you have that for. Hope everything goes well for you x

Yeah I read on google that's the trigger shot iv got 2 of those though is it twice you do that? X

I only had one and that was my trigger which I took 36 hours before egg collection, I'm not sure what else it is used for, maybe it's incase you need a larger dose? X

It is somewhat overwhelming initially but someone from the clinic should ho through it step by step. You should also have a plan saying when to take what and as you go to your scans etc they will inform you when to do different things.

I just did things like setting alarms or meetings on my phone to help.

Good luck. When do you anticipate to start?

I'm the same, had mine delivered on Wednesday, my gonal F takes up a third of my fridge. I'm waiting to come on, then I have injection training and they go through everything with you and give you a calendar of when to take what drug.xx

I have my appointment at the clinic Monday and I should come on Thursday so I think it's Friday I should start

My gonal is taking up most of my fridge as well lol x
