I heart the Gon.al F Pen!!

I'm so chuffed with myself, now I know that many of you can do this with your eyes closed but Frank has always given me my injections, but today I decided it was time to start doing them myself while Frank watched in amazement and said "geez, I didn't think you'd be able to do that yourself!" because you see, I'm a bit of a "wussy" =)

It wasn't bad at all, I love the pen - no mess, no fuss and the needle is a bit thiner and shorter too!! Thanks Jenna, I love you my sweet friend!!

From Friday I have to start using the mix it yourself kind, not looking forward to that, the mornings take me forever as it is what with mine and Franks to do and a little Abi who wants constant attention!

Who wouldn't want to use this:
Instead of this?

Well done Tam! After almost 5 years of IF treatment I have still NEVER been able to inject myself (I'm also a wussy)!!

Congrats Tam! It makes a person feel like a addict! Word of advice - let teh mixture one rest a while before injecting it - helps the burny sensation! But, i suppose you knew that! Keep well! xxx Martie

That's really cool! I'm glad they have a better option...

I've never used the pen but I do like the Orgalutran injections I do. They are in preloaded syringes so you just take the lid off and jab. Good stuff.

We need more pictures of Abi :-)

Abi is just so adorable.. :) Just wanted to say good luck with this cycle and I'm thinking of you. I hated the mix too. I always had to do a combination of the gonal F pen and repronex (where you had to mix and it was always a production for me as well).

I so hear you on the gonal-f pen! I was also a big fan.

wishing you luck as always!
