Today I had an ultrasound just to make sure I’m good to go for this cycle and… I am! My doctor says all of my little follicles look fine. She also told me what to expect with the Lupron that I begin taking tomorrow (via INJECTION): hot flashes, mood swings and insomnia. Great.
After the ultrasound, Marianne, one of the other nurses, gave us a lesson in administering the Lupron. It seems pretty straightforward–the needle is very thin and I just have to poke it into my belly and pull it out just as quickly. It shouldn’t leave any marks, bruises or welts, nor do I have to try to find a vein or anything technical like that. I was advised to take it in the evening, so I’m planning on trying it around 6:30 or 7:00pm. I’m kind of looking forward to it, actually!
