Don't worry seriously! Mine had air all the time. Just try to take it out next time as instructed.

I was paranoid too at the start. Then saw this video where they said it won't kill you.

You should try to remove them but air bubbles are not always easy to remove.

Relax it'll be fine, I understand your worry though...

Hi Ro5ie, I always console myself that they wouldn't let people do these things at home if air bubbles were so serious... πŸ€

It gets easier as you go along. Best of luck.

Its not a problem. Just flick the syringe a few times and the air bubble should rise to the top so you can expel it. x

I just did my first menopur this morning and never even checked for air bubbles..lol so fed up to be here again I was like..whatever..I ducked up more than 150 then pushed some back so that might help to get rid of any bubbles too xx

Been there too Rosie! I recently had this issue but was reassured by my ivf nurse that there is no need to worry. She said that it's only an issue if your injecting into a vein which we're not. She was really reassuring and said there was really no need to worry at all. She said the air bubbles wouldn't do me any harm at all xx

Scary doing the 1st one full stop. Sometimes I think it still looks like air in there even after u get the little droplet come out the top so it's quite deceptive anyway! Hope u feel a bit calmer with your next go. Good luck xx

I struggle with the tiny little bubbles at the rubber minicus (bit of a level chemistry came flooding back there lol). As long as you've not got a whopping great bubble of air you should be good as you are injecting into the subcutaneous fat not a vein. After these big scientific words I may need a lie down.... x
