Hi Ladies,

This may seem so silly, but wanted to ask anyway. This is my second night doing the Gonal F injection using the pen. Both times I have noticed a little bit of clear fluid leaking out after I take the pen out. I tried leaving the pen in longer (20sec) but the fluid still leaked out as soon as I pulled the needle out of my skin. I am just wondering if anyone else experienced this. If so, any suggestions? Did it effect monitoring results? I'm just freaking out because this *$!@ is so expensive!!! Tongue Tied

I had this happen too. I would let go of the pinch of skin and wait a few seconds and then draw the needle out. I don't think it will affect anything.

That would sometimes happen to me, but it never affected my response to the meds.  Worried myself sick the first time though.  Wink

The little bit won't affect anything; it's happened to me several times but it didn't affect any of the results.
