Before starting any fertility drugs, it is important to make sure your physician has a complete health history and medication history.
Be aware of your current stock of medication supply at all times. Plan ahead and order your supply before weekends and holidays, since pharmacies might be closed. Our office has a list of fertility pharmacies offering the prescribed fertility drugs at competitive prices.
Once you receive the drugs, store them as directed by the pharmacist, because high and low temperatures may effect potency.
Before starting shots, make sure you are clear on the instructions.
Take advantage of the free group injection instructions offered every Monday night at SDFC.
When giving a shot in the buttock, avoid the sciatic nerve by using the outer, upper quadrant of the buttock. If you need help, have our nurse mark the safe areas for you.
If an injection area is sore and feels warm to the touch, avoid giving a shot to that area for a few days.
Call our office if an injection area shows red streaking, which might be an indication of inflammation.
If you miss a dose of medication, never double the next one without consulting with our staff first.
