There was no way I cou...

New to this so not 100% sure of how it works.

Gonal f pen

Posted by tanmag in tanmag's Blog, 12 July 2015 - - - - - - · 2453 views

Hi there,
I have my first injection today with Gonal f pen. I think I screwed it too hard and I couldn't remove it and put the cap back. After injection only realised there's a couple bubbles in the liquid... I guess I just have to go to the clinic and ask them to remove it.

Has anyone had the same experience that to share?

Regards,
