Sharp, jabby things

Needles. Wanna see?

That dripping medicinal stuff coming out the end of the needle in a way that just screams bad-innuendo is the FSH – the Follicle Stimulating Hormone. I’ve been shooting that up straight into the abdomen for a week now, so everybody keep your fingers’ crossed my follicles are all nice and stimulated. I’ll be going in first thing Monday morning to see.

We’re aiming for follicles somewhere between 15-20mm in size, averaging out about 18mm. And lots of them.

Anyway, the needles are fairly simple to use. They come in a big box. Look. here’s one I prepared earlier:

And they’re not so scary when you first take them out of the box, either:

The actual needle bits are separate – see those little plastic things at the back of the box? That’s where the needles live.

You screw them on the end, whip of the plastic to reveal the sharp, jabby bit, twist up the red dial to the correct dose, and viola. Stick it in, plunge it down, and we’re done.

So that’s your instructions on how to stick yourself full of hormones. Not so hard now, is it?

Kind regards

The Patient
