Lupron Days

Started lupron just over a week ago and it's like riding a bike. You never forget how to do it -- the process stays imprinted on your brain -- but, the first couple of times trying it again are a bit wobbly. Yes, I admit I freaked out about pushing the needle through my skin, but after a week I'm fine and it's all part of the routine now.

The thing I hate most about lupron is that it sucks the life right out of me. I have no energy and I really have to force myself to go to the gym. Although once I'm there the treadmill is addictive, and I've started doing 3 to 3 1/2 miles at least three times a week. I have noticed a change in my body shape, which is wonderful, but the drawback is chafing in some unusual places. Guess it may be time to invest in a sports bra and see if anyone actually makes sports underwear.

Today I'm awaiting Aunt Flow's arrival because I'm set to start estrogen tomorrow, and I'm not sure if I can begin the estrogen without my day 1. The hormonal rollercoaster ride is set to begin. Honestly, I'm getting tired of all the hormones and am secretly happy that this is the last time I'll be doing all of this. Although, I did hear that actress Kelly Preston is three months pregnant at age 47 so maybe I should never say never.

Well, I've finally got past 6 weeks pregnant at the grand old age of 41 (though admittedly, the egg wasn't mine!). Though I have total sympathy with the idea of being relieved at giving up - this is our last shot, however it turns out. Lots and lots of good luck with this cycle - hope it's the one.

Another available treatment option that can be done at home without a prescription is
a topical ointment. Fortunately, there are a variety of skin tag
removal treatments you can use. Click OK and wait a second or two for the
effect to be applied.

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this site. It's simple,
yet effective. A lot of times it's challenging to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you've done
a amazing job with this. Also, the blog loads super fast for me
on Safari. Outstanding Blog!
