I haven't started my Bravelle yet, but make sure that you are at a 90 degree angle to you skin and try putting in very very slowly. That same thing happened to me when I do follistem. Also, where are you giving the injection? I found that the stomach is MUCH easier than the thigh!! I thought differently prior to but most of the time I can barely feel it going in! Good luck and I hope it gets better for you!

Let the alcohol totally dry. That is what usually causes the burning. I did both those meds and they stung sometimes when going in. I did mine in the thigh... well Dave did it for me.. LOL... and if he injected the meds fast, it hurt, if he did it slow it hurt less.

Hope that helps

Mine burned when I put the plunger in too quick, you have to go nice and slow.

I didn't do the bravelle but I did do the menopur - it will burn if you inject it right away after mixing it. Let it sit in the syringe for at least 15 - 30 seconds before you inject it. That took the burning completely away for me.

Do you keep your meds in the refrigerator? I didn't take what you are taking, but did take Repronex and Gonal-F and I kept it in the refrigerator. If you do, try taking it out for a few minutes and let it get to room temperature. Also, like bobbie0253 said let the alcohol dry before injecting.

Best of luck to you.
