Just an FYI for any of you DE IVF folks...my nurse just gave me a depot lupron shot today IM. She said I had the choice between the regular lupron shots in the arm or leg and the one time only depot lupron shot in the hip. So of course I chose the one timer! it lasts for 25 days...so much better than the 2x per day shot in the arm. I asked why couldn't i have done this shot before?...and she said it's only for DE program -isn't suitable for those who are using their own eggs and using stim drugs. I am also getting to do patches and supposetories for the estrogen and the only other shots will be PIO IM shots later on....they had supposetories that I could have chosen, and most of the RE's were fine with it, but MY RE in particular preferred the IM injections and feels strongly that my chances of success will improve with them...but said that's just his opinion.
