17: Trigger Warning

Sarah & Kaela rant about infertility triggers!  What is that thing that pushes you over the edge and brings you to tears, or makes you want to pull someone’s hair out, or give a well placed throat punch?!  Chances are someone else has been there, too, and they’re talking about it. Consider this your deep breath for the week! Trigger warning: Watch for F bombs ahead - cause nothing brings out a potty mouth like infertility.

14: It’s Time To Evict My Eggs

Kaela & Sarah will give you the scoop on ovulatory drugs, both oral medications and injectables.  They get down to the difference between Letrozole (Femara) and Clomiphene (Clomid), how they work, and why they’re prescribed.  They also give you some insight on using injectable gonadotropins (Follistim, Menopur, Gonal-F, etc.) and what to expect when taking all these extra hormones.  Warning: There might be rage, tears, and definitely some bloating in your future. And finally, you don’t wanna miss another adventure (or maybe we should say nightmare) in the jerk off room told by a new Mafia member!
