I am on my second round of IVF stims and have very bad bruising with the shots this time. I have quarter sized bruises, and some drops of bleeding. I had none of this in my last cycle! No change in meds, same protocol. Am I doing something wrong? Angling the needle or something? Or maybe I just got lucky last round?!

I did a quick estimation and there’s a possibility that the egg retrieval day might be in the end of my client project.

Taking the whole week off doesn’t make sense either since it’s end the of project. Thank you!
