How to take the medicine
Medicines must always be taken as directed by the doctor. Stimulation is performed in the evening. Choose the time yourself - we recommend a time between 6 pm and 7 pm. Stimulation must be performed at the same time every day. Start using on the second or third day of the menstrual cycle. Stimulation is performed for a period of 10 to 15 days. The duration of stimulation is tailored to the response of each client.
Always wash your hands before administering the medicine. The package includes one ampoule of powder, one syringe of solvent, and a needle. Open the ampoule of powder. Attach the needle to the syringe with the liquid. Dilute the vial with a whole syringe of solvent. Always make sure that the powder is completely dissolved. Dispose of the syringe with the needle in the provided container. Gradually withdraw units according to the stimulation protocol (for example only 150 out of 600). The medicine is ready for application.
For the injection, choose an area around the navel in the lower abdomen and change the site of application every day. Use a disinfectant pad at the chosen area. The drug should be administered subcutaneously. Therefore the injection should be performed at an angle of 90° while holding the subcutaneous tissue. Insert the whole needle into the subcutaneous tissue and slide the plunger back to check whether you are in a vein. If your syringe becomes stained with blood, withdraw the injection and use a different one. If all is well, push the plunger of the syringe to inject the medicine. Dispose of the used syringe and needle in a container.
Side effects are not common with this medicine. You may experience e.g. headaches, nausea, and redness, itching, irritation or swelling or haematoma at the injection site.
