Started injections today!!

As above really!!! Got myself in such a state !!! Wasn't at all that bad! Although Marc did it for meimage I'm on 300 bruserylin .

Has anyone else had this and are there symptoms?? Xxxxxx.


  • Congrats on starting your injections, hopefully if all goes to plan, I will be starting 29th December. Do you have to do them at the same time everyday?

    Sorry can't help with side effects as not started yet.

    Good luck.

  • hiya,

    I started mine on the 9th. They are sometimes easy, sometimes hard but not as bad as i imagined! I have been very tired but thats it. Just hoping af will show up soon as i have my suppressed scan on thurs and am hoping to start stimms xxx
  • Everything crossed for all three of you.
  • thank you helen,

    I really hope we all have a happy new year! xxx
  • Hi Gemlou

    I have completed my treatment ... just on my 2ww! eek! Anyways, I didn't get any side effects from the injections, I was on Bruserylin and Gonal F. Towards the end I was a bit more tired and the injections were getting a little more painful (I did all my own into my belly).

    Hope it goes well for you!

  • hello ladies,

    Gemlou, af turned up in the end! was day 11 of bus injections but it has been so heavy (sorry tmi!). Scan on thurs so fingers crossed I am ready to start stimms!

    Ps last few days i have been feeling very hormonal! xx
  • glad to hear af turned up but not that it was so heavy. i have my fingers crossed for your scan x

    for those who have started/finished injections, where have you been injecting? i start on boxing day and am now getting nervous x
  • angelheart - i have been injecting in my thigh. I find quite high up in the middle hurts the least. I pinch, put the the needle in fast, then let go and press the injection in very very slowly. It stings a bit and worse if you go too fast, but its really not too bad. I was really nervous too. Sometimes I get a bit of blood after so have some plasters ready just in case.
  • Hi,

    I am on day day 9 of Buserilin today, side effect are tiredness and one monster headache..!

    Injections aren't too bad, I am doing them at 7pm every evening, or rather my DH is doing them. They can be a bit stingy but OK. My AF arrived on day 7 of DR, and is also quite heavy. But have read thats a good thing, as the lining needs to be nice and thin to start stimms

    What dosage of Buserilin is everyone on? I am on 50mil a day.

    My baseline scan is booked for 27th Dec - fingers crossed for stimms.

    Love TW xxx
