I've been ttc for over 13 months now. I had my first cycle with my RE that just ended in a BFN. There were LOTS of ultrasounds, bloodwork, estrogen and progesterone supplements and I still just barely made a mature egg (although my lining was never thick enough we triggered anyway). So, I have the choice to switch from clomid to femara or just go straight to follitism since I don't respond well to anything. I'm already doing injections for progesterone and trigger shot so I am not real worried about adding more injections. I would rather be more aggressive with follitism than go real slow with femara trials. Since I decided I would go for Follitism I've been looking up information. I never really thought I would need to get this far and be on all injectibles (we are not doing IUI yet) but the time has come and I can only ask so many questions when I talk to the nurse. So, what I want to know (as the literature I've read is variable) is it injected IM or SC? What are the usual side effects from you or friends who've been on it? Is it bad to use follitism since it is completely synthetic instead of using femara that helps your own body stimulate the right hormones to mature eggs? I'm just really nervous and want to know more. Any information you have about using this is very appreciated. Thanks for your help.
