This is really interesting.
I’m just starting week 4 of copaxone & on it for the same reason as you, we want to try for another baby soon (ish!!)
I was on ocrevus which I really liked but was told it needed to be out of my system for 12 months before conceiving so I’m trying this.
I’m getting a reaction every time I’m injecting & it’s turning into a swollen hot red rash which eventually turns into a bruise.
I contacted the nurse & she said people try warm & cold compresses & take the medication out of the fridge for a while before injecting. That helped with the sting but not the reaction afterwards so will try what you’ve written!
Thanks for the advice 😊😊😊
