Trigger injections before follicle retrieval

Trigger injections before follicle retrieval

I’m super confused, the Ovitrelle 250 injection I got given by the IVF nurse at the hospital told me clearly “don’t let air out” but when I google videos and read forums most people take the air out, my boyfriend also finds this very strange, so I’m confused now or worried she got this wrong? when she told me I wrote it down on the packet to make sure I didn’t get it wrong. Would be interesting to know what others got told, bit worried about this now. I’ve attached a picture to show what I mean, maybe I’m over-worrying...

Thank you In advance, really like this group and reading all the posts :) it has helped me a lot! Thank you xx

Hey there

I was told to leave the air in there because it helps with absorption xx

Hi princessyaz26. No need to worry. It helps absorb the drug. Only a worry if giving an injection intravenously. Good luck! Diane

Hi Princessyaz26. Try not to worry, you're doing OK. Hope all goes well for tomorrow's egg collection. Have a good rest afterwards and drink plenty of water. Thinking of you. Diane

Often prepacked injections have air in them to facilitate the last bit of the injection being expelled from the syringe. I would leave it in as the manufacturer has left it in for a reason.
