Well, I just gave myself my first shot of Lupron. I have to say it was very simple and painless, much better than I had expected. I didn’t even feel the needle go in. I ended up giving myself the shot in my lower abdomen, and now the skin is a little red and I have a small bump, but that’s about it. No side effects yet. Hopefully I’ll have none. I’m supposed to continue taking Lupron until egg retrieval (roughly November 15th), and stop taking BC this Sunday.
Now I only have one small problem – how do I dispose of the needle? I forgot to ask Stephanie about that on the phone, and I feel like it is a bad idea to put them in the garbage bag. Mike suggested I hang on to them until the next time I go to the docor’s office, and ask them to dispose of them for me. Unless anyone has any better suggestions?
