I picked up my goodies from the compounding chemist today so today is officially Day 1 of priming.
*clapping and cheering from the cheap seats is heard*
My current (new) clinic primes with the following (my old clinic primed with nothing):
1. CoQ10 – I’m already on a daily dose of 300mg Ubiquinol. There are two ways to take CoQ10 – Ubiquone or Ubiquinol. Ubiquinol is more readily absorbed. I recently had gene testing and one of the things it reported on was my ability to absorb CoQ10 and it turns out that’s not all that good so I really should be taking the Ubiquinol form which I now am. I wasn’t last year though… Interesting.
2. Androgen Cream – this is essentially a daily dose of testosterone. Let’s hope I don’t start sprouting a 5 o’clock shadow. I’m already a hairy person. Errr I remove it but you know, naturally I think I tend towards hair. And it’s dark. ANYWAY I only do this until Day 1 of my next cycle which will be when the stim phase begins so really, it’s not that long.
Incidentally I found it interesting that the name of the cream seems taken from the word androgynous which makes sense I guess but is fascinating all the same.
3. Melatonin – aaaahhhh melatonin, the darling of Rebecca Fett of “It Starts with the Egg” fame. It is meant to do wonders for egg quality. I start that today and take it all the way up to egg collection. Guess there is no need for it once the eggs are grown. I’m interested to see how it affects my sleep. I don’t have issues in that area anyway so I wonder if it will be all the same or different? We shall see.
Anyway, I’M EXCITED you guys which is probably why I was roaming around the world with that “I’m on top of the world” song in my brain all day. It’s my happy song and today I felt happy.
Just in case you didn’t read my food post and listen to the song there. Or just in case you did and now it is stuck in your brain so now you want to hear it again, I’ve just popped it in below.
You know you want to listen to it. Go on.
Oh and I’m going to check out that whole Dubsmash thing tomorrow. I’ve been putting it off as I feel I’m going to end up addicted. If you are lucky and I am as amazing at it as I want to be then I shall post one and share it with you all. That ought to give you a laugh for the end of the weekend.
