The tin came with Tina with Wisconsin cheese and other goodies in it. I think this is a good use for it now. Also, I am more excited that I should be about the biohazard container. Those are my prenatal vitamins to the bottom left.
This is my open tin. In here, I have Lupron, some steroids, some antibiotics, progesterone, and estrace. I also put a small amount of my syringes in here and my alcohol wipes. These needles are nothing. They are very tiny and only 1/2 inch in length. I did my first injection of Lupron last night. I was pretty nervous about it, but I have two tattoos, and they hardly phased me at all. I figured I could handle it. I did.( If needles make you queasy go below the picture) For these injections, I can do them in my upper/outer thigh, backs of my arms, or in my stomach. I chose to do my thigh because I know I have so much fat there that there was no risk of going in too far. (This is not an actual risk anyway due to how small the needle is.) I also chose my thigh because it seemed like it would be easier to see and get to for my first shot. I swabbed the skin with alcohol, put the needle to it and just pressed in, gradually increasing the pressure until it went through. Once I broke through the skin, the rest was easy. I no longer fear this part of the journey. I do, however fear the intramuscular injection of progesterone. That needle is a slightly bigger gauge and is 1.5 inches long. And it has to go in my bum. Needle Rant Done.
SInce I am taking the lupron now, I guess I will mention what the lupron does. As I understand it, lupron suppresses the hormones that stimulate egg production. Which is a good thing, since my own eggs will not be required at this time. I am also to take baby aspirin and prenatal vitamins. I will keep taking birth control for four more days, then I will stop taking those.
This medication thing is SO fun. :)
