Tips for Success with Fertility Injections

Health & Medical Blog

Finding out you need fertility injections in order to conceive can be a bit of a shock. Even once you come to terms with this, you need to actually go through the process of administering the injections, which is not always easy either. Here are some general tips for success with the process.

Be specific with your timing.

Fertility injections are not similar to other medications that you can take an hour late or early without too much concern. Fertility injections really need to be administered at an exact time in order to be maximally effective. Be specific with the timing of your injections. Get everything ready in advance, and set an alarm for 5 minutes before the shot is due. This gives you some warning to get everything prepared. Set a second alarm for the time you're actually supposed to take the injection, and take it as soon as the alarm rings.

If you're nervous, have someone else inject you.

Some people have no trouble injecting themselves, but for others, this makes them really nervous. If you're feeling queasy or uneasy about the whole thing, have your doctor show someone willing to help and who you trust how to give you the shots. This way, your partner can give you the shot and all you have to do is sit back and relax. The shots are in your abdomen and are easy to administer, so your partner should have no trouble giving them properly. The injection is easier to give and less painful if you are relaxed when you get it, and it's often easier to stay relaxed if your partner gives you the shot.

Maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine.

Fertility injections can help many women finally conceive. But getting these injections does not mean you can or should give up all the other things you've been doing to improve your fertility. If your doctor has you taking certain supplements, make sure you keep taking them. If you've been exercising or incorporating certain foods into your diet, good job — keep that up. You can also keep working with a chiropractor, acupuncturist, or other natural-healing practitioner if you've been doing so.

If your doctor has recommended fertility injections, then they are likely the best option for you. Follow the tips above, and if you have any additional questions or concerns, don't hesitate to reach out to your doctor.
