Morning lovely ladiesss. Hope you are all welland happy.

Just a quick question πŸ€—

Do you get bruises from the injections? Few times when i use menopur a little bump appear on the injection place and then bruises. Do i hit a vein or it's just some air? It bruises afterwards. I'm prettysure is quite normal but i thought let me see what your experience is. 😍

Wishing you a lovely day πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜Š

Hey hun yes definatley normal unfortunately. By the time of egg collection my stomach looked like a lovely rainbow of blues greens and yellows 🀣😩 best you can do is change sides everyday unless like me you were doing 2 injections a day I just kept swapping sides for each med lol. hopefully all worth it though still waiting for my BFP πŸ˜‰ best of luck to you! Xxx

Oh ouch I thought my 2 were bad! It gets hard trying to find an unused spot. If its really sore put some ice or a bag of frozen peas on injection site for 20 seconds before Injecting numbs it a bit πŸ™‚

Oh I'm not in the 2ww just yet, I will be on my 3rd 2ww soon I'm about to start my first FET next month thank you tho fingers 🀞🀞🀞 for both of us πŸ£πŸ˜˜πŸ’–πŸ’•

Hi Kindmr. Always push needle in slowly, draw back on plunger to see if blood comes back. If it does, you’re in a vein, so pull needle out a bit. Push drug in slowly and pull needle out slowly. Fingers crossed! Diane

Hi Diane. Thank you so much your advice is really really helpful. Thank youuu and have a lovely day πŸ€—x

The needles on Menopur are rubbish! I found them pretty blunt is Im honest but I found that I got better with practice. If you look closely at the needle you'll see that it comes to an angled point, try to pinch and inch and use the sharpest bit to go in at 90 degrees, I found giving it a little twist also helped!xx

I will.. next month. Want to have all the good supplements and vitamins in my system before start my 2nd cycle.

Can relate to this am starting to get bruises and always am red with bumps for short time after the injections. Good suggestions by others though so will look to do those too. Best wishes. Xx

Definitely very helpful advices. I have a massive bruise from last night, tonight I've done better i think xx Best wishes to you too ans good luck 😊😊😍😍


Hope you managed tonight ok! Totally agree it’s the menopur needles that are rubbish. I sometimes found depending on the angle they went into the vial they became blunt so wouldn’t then go into my skin first time. Realised quickly if it didn’t go in on it’s first attempt to put the menopur back in the vial and start again with a new needle so it was nice and sharp.

Hope that makes sense!x

Heyy. Thanks for your reply. Seems like everyone struggles with the menopur s needles. I've been on Menopur 9 days and bruised myself 4 times including today as well haha. No matter how careful i was just happened. But it's fine and will be all worth at the end πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜Šxxx

Hope you are well and enjoying your pregnancy πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ˜Šxx
