      Doxy 2x/day.    Gonal F 225 IU in am,   1- Cetrotide in pm and 3- 75 (225 IU) of menopur.  
     I forgot how much the Cetrotide burns afterwards.   And my stomach is starting to look pretty bloated.  
     I am starting to get really anxious about the outcome and trying my best to stay positive.

Maybe you should ask if the burning is a side affect?? I know everyone reacts to meds differently but i'm not sure it is suppose to do that???

I get a little reaction with the Cetrotide and HCG- trigger shot-  But i was told that happens sometimes and not to worry.  Its not bad it just gets red and it is irritated for an hour.

Red and itchy was what i had to.. I went to the hospital to make sure it was ok as i ended up in a big hive from it... and was told the same thing...
