Trigger shot done, but now really worried something will go wrong!

โ€ข19 Replies

Had a scan this morning and follicles had grown since the one I had on Friday. There are loads of follicles though so after lots of discussion between the nurse and doctor, they changed the plan of what I was going to take so I had to take both buserelin and pregnyl at the specific time. There was a little gap of a few minutes between the two whilst we mixed the pregnyl up so hope I haven't messed it up.

I've also suddenly got really worried that I'm gonna ovulate before egg collection. I'm sure they know what they're doing but I can't help worrying that it'll go wrong and there'll be nothing to collect when I get there! Anybody else had this (probably quite irrational) fear? ๐Ÿ˜”

Hi there, I think we have all been there so rest assured that it is normal to feel like this. Your timings will be fine and your eggs will be maturing as you read this.

Good luck xx

Thank you. I know what I'd be telling other people if they were worrying like this! I'd be reassuring them and telling them not to worry. So much harder when it's yourself though!

Hey, I know it's easier said than done but try not to worry. I've always taken buserelin and my trigger shot with a small gap between them and it didn't cause any problems last cycle so I'm sure your timings will be fine. We put so much pressure on ourselves it's bound to make us think a little irrational - wishing you lots of luck x

Thank you. There was only about 5 mins between them cos my OH was taking ages trying to get the air bubbles out of it so I'm sure it'll be ok. Just easy to look for anything to worry about! x

Definitely, it's like self protection but all your eggs will be maturing nicely x

I took my trigger last night too and egg collection is tues. this is my 2nd round so I know what to expect. Your little๐Ÿณ will be maturing nicely. Good luck with your egg collection ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป

Thanks, and good luck to you for tomorrow. Mine is tomorrow morning too ๐Ÿ˜Š x

Hi kt_11

Good luck for your collection. Like others have said, a couple of minutes between injections won't have made a difference I'm sure - you'd have to be very ambidextrous to do them both together! I was also really worried that I was going to ovulate before my egg collection but they assured me that wouldn't/couldn't happen because the buserelin had switched off all my natural responses and they were in control of everything...

Take care - another bump of the rollercoaster gone for you. Xxx

Thank you. Realistically I know it won't make any difference but can't believe how anxious i felt after doing it. And I know they will have done this lots of times before so know what they're doing ๐Ÿ˜‚

I always thought the most stressful time was going to be the 2ww but every step I get through just makes me worry about the next one! x

I know what you mean... there is always something to worry about! We ended up having to have a freeze all cycle as they got 28 eggs and said my risk of OHSS was too high if we went straight in to transfer and I got pregnant so we now have 5x 2-day-old embryos in the freezer (we also got 4x blastocysts but they weren't goid enough to freeze ๐Ÿ˜ฏ) and are now waiting for our review appt on 5th September to find out when we can go for a FET cycle - I was ready for a 2 week wait, not a 2 month one! Lol

Good luck tomorrow!! X

kt_11 in reply to MrsB_2013

Thanks! Yeah that's something that could well happen to me too, so I'm trying not to think about transfer yet in case it doesn't happen. Good luck for your next review. Hope it's good news ๐Ÿ˜Š

We were told before ec that if they got more than (I think) 22 they would freeze all... they only thought I had about 18 follicles on the previous scan so 28 eggs was a shock to everyone!! But they told us pretty much as soon as I came round that we'd have to freeze everything. It was hard to deal with and watching the number go down and to end up with "only" 5 in the freezer was truly horrible but I know it was for my health... hope everything goes well for you this morning, will be thinking of you xxx

I had to do my injections at 7pm as normal and trigger at 10.30pm I've not been scanned since Friday I've no idea what's going in inside just hoping for the best good luck for tomorrow too!! I'm in at 9am for EC 10.30

Good luck Patty, hope it goes well xx

Thank you x

Good luck for your EC! I was told not to take my usual injections on the day of the trigger. Think they're gearing up for a likely case of me getting OHSS so trying to reduce the risk.

Hi hun. I had my trigger shot 21:00 and my menupur and buserelin 3 hours prior. EC 09:00 tomorrow. I feel the same even though in my head i know that the clininc are really experienced. Every step of this process is a worry but we are over coming hurdles slowly but surely. Off to collect a prescription for vallium today. One to help me sleep tonight and one to help me relax in the morning. Not sure if its because i was a whimp at the last scan or had normal reaction to examination and so uncomfortable with number of follicles plus fluid. The nurse said you will need to relax your tummy muscles so i can move across to the right ovary!!

When is your Ec? Best of luck hun xx

kt_11 in reply to Elou81

It's tomorrow morning 09:20 so similar to you! Think I'm worried because they told me to just take the trigger and the buserelin (they only prescribed this one yesterday) and not my other ones because they reckon I'm likely to get OHSS. Just really hope if I do it's not too bad and I make it to transfer.

Good luck for tomorrow! I'm sure the Valium will make it all go ok!

Elou81 in reply to kt_11
