Gonal-F AND Menopur

Starting tomorrow morning, I'll go from one shot/day to FOUR!  It's good for me.  I was getting rather cocky about my Lupron skills.  Yep...Gonal-F and Lupron for breakfast and Gonal-F and Menopur for dinner (I used to be a big girl...I think in food terms). 

I'm ultra pumped that I get to stick with the tiny needles until retrieval.  I guess I thought stim shots were "the big ones" too.  :::Whew:::  Crisis averted.  Word on the street is that the Menopur might sting a bit...we'll see.  Stay tuned for spot-on reviews.

In the meantime, check out these instructional videos from Freedom Fertility (my pharmacy that I LOVE).  I've watched the Gonal-F one twice.  I *think* I'm ready.

It's crazy how much these new shots make everything seem real.  VERY REAL...and I like that.


  1. Once you start the stims-time FLIES! The Menopur can be a bitch. Wait 5 minutes between mixing and injecting and ice the skin before you inject. Go fast like a dart and get it done quickly. GL!

    1. Flying time is WELCOME. I hope that stays true for me as well. Thanks for the well wishes and tips! I will have braved my way through it this time tomorrow!!!
