Anybody starting long protocol this month?

Hi there

I'm starting long protocol next week with D21 injection of Prostap 3.75mg. This is our second cycle but we did a short protocol before. I am feeling a little anxious as I know long protocol is more taxing on our bodies.

If there are others in similar situation, please get in touch, so we can support each other during the coming 4-6 weeks.

Thank you.

Hi Esme, i’m on long protocol as well. I was given the prostap last week and pick up injections next week I think x

Thank you. How did you cope with Prostap - any side effects? The injections seems a little complicated - I am going to have a good look at it again this evening ahead of administering it tomorrow morning. I was told to do it between 6am and 8am. Thank you.

I’ve not had too many thankfully. Had a few hot flushes but that’s about it so far. Fingers crossed I don’t get any more. I collect injections on Monday. Are you injecting prostap yourself? X

You will be alright. Just keep positive and try not to panic too much. Are you going to be on a short or long protocol?

I'm on short, I'm treating this round like more tests as I know they'll learn a lot from it. I don't want to get my hopes up too high x

Hi Esme78, about to try a long protocol too. It’s our second cycle (one fresh with one frozen on short protocol so far). We’re starting long first week of Oct, consultant appt booked for next fri. I too am nervous about the added strain on the body (and mind!) for long protocol. Keep us updated on how you get on with the starts of things, all the very best of luck xxx
