If you’re going through IVF as a solo parent, let this empower you. You’ve done so much already and you certainly can inject yourself with the meds. Maybe you ask a friend, a sibling or a housemate to hold your hand, or maybe you mentally hold your own hand. In fact, for those in our community going through IVF treatment alone, 75% said you sought support from friends and family. For some, support came in the guise of injection-help, for others, friends and family members popped over, called, asked questions and phoned to check-in.
What’s important to remember during IVF is it’s absolutely doable to jab yourself – whether solo or partnered – and 78% of our amazing FHH community said they injected IVF stims themselves.
