I'm moving this to the Trying to Conceive forum where you'll get better input. :)

41alreadymom, I went through IVF. They had me use something called a Q-cap: did they give you that? I actually mixed Gonal-F into the menopur along with saline solution they gave me. It's been over a year since I did it, so I don't remember the amounts. But here's a link to the IVF thread I'm a member of: http://www.mothering.com/community/t/1354070/summer-ivf-thread-summer-embies-bring-spring-babies/240#post_17016021
They're a SUPER supportive group of ladies and I know they'd love to welcome you in if you're interested. There may be somebody there who could be more helpful. Good luck!

ps - my RE walked me through how to do all the shots with sample vials. Can you call them and ask for a demo? They really should do that for you, imo. goodvibes.gif
