Abortion2Are you beset with infertility and have been thinking about having IVF? Are you committed to doing whatever it takes to get your own family but are a bit worried about the idea of giving yourself injections? Well many women feel nervous and anxious about the idea of infertility injections at first, but with the support of your IVF clinic you will become confident and be able to do it without a jual obat aborsi.

IVF is one of the most successful fertility treatments that we have in medicine at the current time and it is become more successful each year with advances in the techniques that are used. According to the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART), the numbers of live births resulting from the procedure have steadily grown since the 1980s when it was first introduced. In 2008, IVF resulted in around 15,000 live births for all SART clinics around the country (which numbers at 392, about 85% of the total clinics in the country). However, giving yourself injections to increase your fertility and the availability of ova during ovulation is an essential step in the process.

The injections that are used in IVF treatment are easier, less painful and very safe for you to do yourself. When you start the process the doctor and IVF staff will teach you how to do the injections and help you to become confident with the process. Your spouse can also learn to give you the injections, which might make it less scary than giving them to yourself.

Infertility injections are given either intramuscularly, or subcutaneously. An intramuscular injection goes directly into the muscle and a subcutaneous injection enters just under the skin surface. The both kinds of injection are easier to give and less painful than an intravenous injection – these are the sort of injections that are generally used when you have to have a blood test done.

If you lack confidence and you are finding the process difficult to proceed with, then the centers staff can be on hand to help you until you develop your confidence or until your spouse is confident enough at giving you the injections. It is something that will never be a pleasant experience, but one that you can and may want to become accustomed to.

It is best to have a quiet place where you can go to give yourself the injection. For many women, this is their bedroom or bathroom. It can be helpful to use ice cubes beforehand to numb the area that is going to receive the injection or to purchase numbing creams or patches from the drug store.

It is likely to take a little while to get used to giving the infertility injections to yourself. Needles may not be the most pleasant of things you apply to yourself. The best thing to do is to think that each injection takes you one step closer to having your own baby and use that as motivation to overcome any fears that you might have of the needles.
