We had our treatment planning appointment end of April and found out we'd be starting as soon as my next cycle started which should have been 6th May.
I'm waiting for it to arrive so that i can in and have a scan before starting the meds, i'm starting on Menopur for 1 week then Menopur and Cetrotide for 1 week, if all goes well it'll be 12-16 days in all before the egg collection, which should be around 20th May but that will be a little later now!
My home looks like a clinical workspace, with all the meds and the sharps boxes, i'm very used to drawing up injections for my patients, just not sure how i'll be having to do it for myself!
My dilemma is i'm a nurse i work shifts in the community and typically they are only 5 hours but i can work an 11 hour day working x2 5 hour shifts, i work a lot of 4-9pm's due to the children i care for. My manager has been extremely supportive but now the clinic has said i must give my injections between 6-8pm (you can see where my dilemma is) it'll mess up my shift pattern and the clinic wont allow it to be any later i did ask. the alternative is work nightshifts for the 2 weeks i'm on injections, i rarely work nightshifts probably 2 a month, so my body isn't used to permanent night working! So this stress is probably halting my cycle starting which is so frustrating.
How did everyone else manage? Did you find the times ok, what type of routine did you get into giving the injections? Do they hurt and did anyone get any side effects off these meds?
