I am doing an IUI cycle this month and today was my first day with the Gonal-F
injection. I was worried to do it on my own so I had my husband do it. He did everything
very well except.........he panicked when he injected me (he thought it hurt me) and
he pulled it out before waiting for the required 5 sec. We definitely heard the click of
the pen, he did it twice to be sure, but then he pulled it out, MAYBE it was in for
about 2 seconds.
What happens now? does this mean I did not get the correct dose? does it mean
there is extra medication still in the pen and tomorrow I will end up double dosing
myself? Any help I could get would be great!
On the lighter side, I caught the whole thing on video, perhaps one day when I'm
not freaking out I will post it. Its pretty funny to see the looks on our face when we
realize we didn't count to 5.
