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

Thanks,

Felicia

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

After 3 rounds of IVF, 1 FET, 2 Angel, and FINALLY some improved SA results, we're...thinking about trying again.

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