On May 23rd, my third period finally arrived. A week late but never mind!
Which means we start treatment again! Little bit different this time around, as I have some frozen embryo’s I don’t need to stimulate again. So on day 2 of my period, I start on injections. These are similar to the nasal sprays, they stop me from producing the hormone to ovulate. I had to do 1 injection a day for 7 days, along with 1 oestrogen tablet 3x a day to thicken the lining of my womb ready for a possible pregnancy. We had a scan booked for May 31st to measure the lining of my womb. It needs to be at least 8mm to have embryo transfer.
These injections weren’t as easy as the one’s we had for stimulating. These ones came with a little bottle of powder and some liquid inside the syringe and you had to inject the liquid into the bottle, swill it around until the powder has fully dissolved, draw it back up into the syringe and tap out any air bubbles before injecting. Also the needles on these injections were about 3/4 of an inch long, and you had to inject these into the bottom of your stomach as you do with stimulating. However these ones were a little painful, I think because the needle was much longer and slightly thicker than the ones we used for stimulating!
