So. Much. Burning.

This is my first cycle with Menop.ur and the RE said it may hurt like a bee sting. May hurt? It burns so much that tonight (my third night) it was so hard to stick it in knowing how much it would suc.k.

I noticed I am super tired and just feel off after the shot too. Shots. There are three. Lupr.on (5ml), (150) and one vial of Menop.ur.

I'm back in for blood work and an ultrasound on Tuesday and we are tentatively looking at June 21 or 22 for retrieval.

I have really felt that this cycle was going really quickly so far, but it feels harder than last time. I am really not digging this whole three shots a day thing, but I did read about the ice trick on a few sites, so I'll definitely be trying that tomorrow.


  1. Hang in there! The Menopur does sting like a mother, I find. I also found that a glass of wine before my evening shots took the edge off :-)

  2. Hmmm, I never experienced that much pain. Ice sounds like a good idea though. Good luck!

  3. I hear you! Nothing burns as much as men.opur. It's absolutely the worst.

    Good luck!!

  4. Hey there! I've been wanting to comment forever, but I never know what to know how it is.
    Well, good luck with it this time aroung. Just remember to take one day at a time. It will happen!!

  5. The Lupron is what is making you so tired... it knocked me down BOTH times I donated my eggs. It will get better when you get off that! And you are right about the Menopur! It totally stings!
