Bring on the shots!

And I don’t mean alcohol! 🙂

This will be my daily routine – twice a day until further notice. Today I’m starting Lupron – 20 units AM & PM. I just did my first injection, and it didn’t hurt at all. The needles are only a 1/2 inch and really thin.

Lupron used in IVF: Lupron acts by suppressing the pituitary gland (the gland which is normally responsible for triggering ovulation). However, before suppression occurs, Lupron will briefly stimulate the pituitary causing an increase in the pituitary hormones LH (luteinizing hormone) and FSH (follicle stimulating hormone). This is called the agonist or flare phase.
