I have finally achieved suppression. Woo Hoo! I drop my Lupron to 5 units tonight, and start Follistim at 225 on Wednesday. My first ultrasound / blood test is Sunday morning at 8a.m. I'm dragging hubby with me and we're going to try to go out for breakfast after. I'm so excited to move to step 2.

Since I've been on the Lupron for 5 freaking weeks (!), I felt the need to spice things up a bit with the shots. I had my husband practice giving me my shot last night. I have to say that I am more gentle than he is. I understand why the diabetic cat hisses at him.


  1. Wow! You are brave! I have thought about seeing if my hubby wants to give me one of my shots, but I just don't think I could let him. Good luck!!

  2. I think you're brave to do them yourself. I've had E do all of mine - I just can't do it. Congrats on reaching suppression. They say good things come to those who wait. I really hope it's true for you.
