Wow, I am finally at the day where I trigger! This moment finally is here because all of my follicles are at an awesome size and I am beyond ready to go! That means no additional medications just trigger shots!
To get to this point was very exhausting but the end of the journey is almost here. Nerves are taking over for sure because this is a new medication enter my body and I don’t know what to expect. And I know this is the most important part of the IVF cycle so it has to be done properly and on time.
I feel extremely exciting and nervous at the same time. That means I get a full 24 hours and than it’s Egg Retrieval! Wow! This is journey has been one to remember. I made it this far and I am super proud of my courage, I am stronger from this!
I have to trigger at 11 pm which means I will not sleep because I will be thinking about that, ugh! And another trigger shot again tomorrow at 11 am!
Here is the scoop on my trigger shots Pregnyl I have to mix the liquid into the powder. I actually thought that the long needle was going to be injected in me but thankfully it’s only used to mix. Thank you Jesus!!! The other medication is called Leuprolide will take this one alone tomorrow.
It’s all about the trigger, I hope these follicles are ready to rock!
Pregnyl This medication is used in women to treat fertility problems. It is given after finishing another medication (menotropins) to cause the release of an egg (ovulation). It should not be used in women whose ovaries no longer make eggs properly (primary ovarian failure).
Leuprolide Ovulation cannot occur naturally while on Lupron because LH, which triggers ovulation, is suppressed. This prevents a premature surge of the LH before the retrieval, which could cause loss of the cycle. Once the eggs are mature, an injection of Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) or LH is given to stimulate ovulation. Egg retrieval is scheduled 35 hours later.
Stay tuned for Day 11
