What to Expect from Live Injection Support

Embarking on the journey of IVF injections can feel daunting, but at Dandi, we're here to provide you with the guidance and support you need at every juncture. Whether you're unboxing your fertility medications or seeking a step-by-step walkthrough during injections, our team is dedicated to empowering you through this process. Here is what you can expect during each type of session:

Medication Preparation 

  • What does it entail? During this session your Dandi nurse will carefully walk you through each medication in your fertility protocol. From unboxing to storage, we'll ensure you have a clear understanding of how to handle your medications.
    • Medication Inventory: Your Dandi nurse will check your box of medications from the pharmacy against your medication protocol to ensure nothing is missing, so make sure you have these handy.
    • Understanding Your Medications: We'll discuss the purpose of each medication, how it works, and any potential side effects to anticipate. Our goal is to empower you with knowledge so you feel confident and informed throughout your injections.
    • Organizing Your Medications: Your Dandi nurse will provide guidance on how to store and organize your medications to streamline the process and minimize stress. We'll make sure you have everything you need to navigate your medication regimen with ease.

Live Injection Administration

  • Real-Time Support: In this session, your Dandi nurse will provide detailed instructions through the process of mixing, preparing and administering your injections in real time. We'll ensure you feel confident and comfortable.
  • Support and Encouragement: Beyond medication guidance, your Dandi nurse will be there to offer emotional support, encouragement, and reassurance. We understand that IVF injections can be emotionally challenging in addition to the physical demand, and we're here to support you every step of the way.

Tips to Prepare

Preparing for your live injection support session can help ensure a productive and informative session. Here are a few tips to consider:

  • Gather Your Medication Info: Have your list of medications and any instructions close by. It helps to double-check everything with your nurse, making sure you're both on the same page.
  • Choose a Bright, Quiet Spot: Pick a well-lit and quiet place for your video call, using your computer or a phone stand for better video control. This helps your nurse see clearly, especially if you're learning to do injections.
  • Tech Check: Ensure your internet, camera, and microphone are all working smoothly to avoid any interruptions.
  • List Your Questions: Write down any questions or concerns you have beforehand, so you don’t forget to ask during your session.
  • Be Kind to Yourself: Remember, it's okay to take your time learning about your medications and/or the injection process. Don't be hard on yourself, and feel free to ask for help or clarification along the way.
  • Safe Needle Disposal: Have a safe spot ready for used needles, like a designated sharps container or a thick plastic bottle. Make sure it is properly labeled and kept out of reach of children and pets.
  • Alcohol Swabs: Make sure you have alcohol swabs to clean the injection site. If you don't have any, make sure to purchase / obtain from your clinic ahead of time.

At Dandi Fertility, we're committed to providing personalized, compassionate care to those on their fertility journey. Our sessions are designed to empower you with the knowledge and confidence you need to navigate IVF injections successfully.
