First menopur injection :disaster!

Hi ladies First stims injection didn't go quite to plan! It's a nightmare to mix/draw into syringe.. πŸ˜•worried I lost a bit and haven't had the recommended dose. I hope it's ok.. I couldn't even do it, mum ended up doing it For me.. Worrying! Any stories/tips to share and reassurance that it will be ok? X

Hey Allybell, firstly try not to panic.

The first injection is always the worst.

I am sure even if you did not get every bit injected by the end of your stims period that minimal amount will not matter a jot.

If your panicking and really unsure I would give your clinic a call if they are reasonably near you and ask them if they could give you another demo.

I am sure tho tomorrow injection will be a much better experience xx

LBM is right. Don't panic. I lost bits here and there. I was really freaked out that it looked to be seeping back out of my tummy one night! Do call your clinic because the professional voice always is more reassuring xx

It will be fine if you missed a bit, you might just end up on it a bit longer if you miss a lot. You will get better at it! I will confess I hate doing and I think it helps to give yourself lots of time so you're not rushing. Get all the stuff out of the wrappers and everything so you are ready to go. And if you have someone else to do it for you, so much the better!

Thanks ladies! I hope so I just spoke to a friend who's in gynae, she's calmed me down and is going to go through tomorrow's injection with me. I may just call the clinic tomorrow for piece of mind. What a stressful experience hey girls! As if we haven't enough to be worried about! Ps. Wishing you all well x

Don't worry, I have squirted bits out here and there! It's really tricky mixing it all together. I've had one extra day of stims - could be down to losing a bit of injection here and there or might just be my follicles needing an extra dose. Don't be hard on yourself. Xx

I wasted 2 amps of powder because i couldntdo it properly - id got myself in such a state. I just discarded them and started again after giving myself a talking too. The injection really wasnt that bad - once you have done the first one it will give you a confidence boost - good luck x

Don't panic! I've had this a couple of times now....im on cycle 3. I think it all works itself out in the end! I had a wee freak out the other night cause the syringes are rubbish and lost a little....again and was almost in tears as I've done this a few times already. My scan went good today so hasn't affected anything! Try not to worry!xx
