Hi Furbaby. Where do you find the buddy groups? I'll be injecting my 13th decapeptyl this evening and should be starting the Gonal f pen tomorrow.


I'm a bit scared of the Gonal f pen process and the dose she wants me to take (300)!

Waiting for a call back from the clinic this afternoon so that they confirm the amount.

The pen is pretty easy to use. The instructions are quite clear or there may be some tutorials on YouTube (I've used them for other meds).

Buddy groups are under the assisted conception heading, and then assisted conception (buddy groups).

There is the ready set go girls group. Always someone in there to talk to. And then there is a new Two week wait (2ww)  groupeach month for those who have had transfers and are sitting through the dreaded wait to find out if it has worked.
