@pearl thanks for sharing…..It definitely looks expensive, so is it 1 pen/drug dosage or a pen holds more than 1 use? As with insulin, pen can be used for over a week.
You are a WARRIOR!!! I won’t stop shouting that, may the good Lord answer your prayers….as @nicole said You know you have a whole army of women praying along with you!!!March 23, 2017 at 8:13 am #29700
The pen holds more than one use hence the many needles but ones dosage matter and also the capacity of the pen.
This particular brand of pen in the picture comes in 900units, 450units and 300units; I am always on the 900units because I start with 100units and the doctor gets to increase it if am responding slowly.
Note: 100units and over is very high due to my medical history(PCOS, Infertility and trying to concieve) and most doctors will always start with 50units and depending on how you respond it can be increased to the next unit on the pen or decreased if you are responding slow/too slow or fast/too fast.
SIDE NOTE: There are other pens which I will be using but thats for later. Also is the trigger pen which is also similar but green in color (you can view it on the picture I made for Nicole sometime ago) but contains 250units but for one dosage(Meaning you have to inject all 250units when its time for trigger. 😥 )March 23, 2017 at 8:29 am #29704March 23, 2017 at 9:10 am #29728March 23, 2017 at 2:34 pm #29757

Oluwakemine: I checked out that Vine Health place on Bode thomas Opposite Nucleus Lab on Wednesday. I read it from your reply to Sayo on the 21st March.
I checked it out because I am also considering acunpunture during my next cycle.
To be honest, I wasn’t impressed at all. No flyers,not convincing etc. The man is a Nigerian (possibly from the eastern side of 9ja). I told him expressly that I needed it to improve blood circulation to my uterus during my next IVF cycle. I expected him to pick it up from there and educate me on how it works etc but he didnt he just said yes they do it.
I asked him if it will be done by an Indian or him (because I heard it’s owned by Indians) but he said it’s him that does it. Not impressed at all.
He later even told me after I asked so many questions that it’s not the needle accupunture but the thermal pad type and that this is safer than the needle type which may have complications. Just thought to share.
It will be nice to have anyone else interested in accupunture to go check them out at Bode Thomas and come back with their opinion just just incase it’s the TTC stress that is clouding my judgement.
I plan to check out the Korean one and that Dr Essien’s place that I read on another blog soon.March 31, 2017 at 6:46 pm #30072March 31, 2017 at 8:11 pm #30073
I went to search for him on google. See below.
If you search google for him you will also see the testimony of someone who said she did a session before and after ET.
