Update & looking for advice please!😊

So from my nurse appointment Friday I have had a scan booked in, appt to follow and today received the call about delivering all my meds. 😵 All of which are arriving Friday! They only deliver from 8am to 12 midday, will they be ok out of the fridge for 6hrs until I finish work??

I'm so excited to get this started now. Wishing the weeks away and actually wanting my period to start,never thought I'd see that day 😂

Any advice about the meds will be much appreciated xoxox

Mine always said to make arrangements to go straight in the fridge, so I always took a hol or got my mum to take the deli every for me x

Ohh no! I did ask the lady on the phone and she said that they would be fine 🙄 I'll ring the clinic tomorrow and see what they say. May mean taking an early lunch break and getting them home to the fridge! Thank you xxx

I didn't have to refrigerate any of my meds. The company the hospital used called me to arrange delivery and said on the phone they just need to be in a dry cool place. But I still needed to be in to sign for them

Ahhh okay. I'm going to call the clinic tomorrow to make sure. Mine are being delivered to work as we are both full time so won't be home for a delivery! It won't be much of a problem if I have to take them home ill just have an early lunch break 😊 xx

Hi Jade my Menopur had to be refrigerated but was told I could keep it in a insulated lunch bag with frozen bottle of water for a few hours when travelling or daft question but is there no fridge at your work? X

Hi Lucky, there is a fridge at work but only a few people know about my treatment & it's a big office so I don't want to start people's tongues wagging but filling the fridge with drugs lol 😏

I'll call the clinic tomorrow and check. Failing that I will just drive home & pop them in my fridge. My manager is being so understanding I can't see it being an issue xx

Most of mine were room temperature..the fridge ones should have a orange sticker saying for fridge so you know which ones... All the best... All getting closer now xxx

Ahhh okay. I'll maybe just go through the box then and see if any do need to be in the fridge. If it's only a couple I could disguise them and stash them in the work fridge for the afternoon! Yes, certainly is getting close now. I can't wait to get it all started & give it my best shot xox
