Some people may think that all the injections Surrogates have to take are the worst part of the process but it really isn't that bad. Sure there's a little pinch and there are times that you bruise or are sore afterwards but I know of at least one other side effect that most surrogates dislike even more than over 100 injections . . .
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the glory that is "The Pastey Vagina".
Those of you who have not gone through IVF- I'm sure your minds are racing and you may have already figured this out, but let me break it down for you. After the embryo transfer, besides daily shots of Progesterone and every 3rd day shots of Delestrogen, most surrogates also have to take Progesterone Suppositories twice a day. When the suppositories break down in the vagina, the leave a lovely white paste. Usually I would describe the Pastey Vagina in even more (graphic) detail, perhaps even link to pictures, but I figure this time, I will skip if for your benefit. LOL
Yes, I know TMI (too much information) . . . unless you are contemplating being a surrogate and then are appreciative too get as much information as possible . . . or you are already a surrogate that has experienced the Pastey Vagina and could never share the "specialness" of it with anyone. Either way, You're Welcome!
