Whisper words of wisdom

Six, ladies and gentlemen: six amps, or 450 IU, a day.  "We're just gonna to hit you with a wall of gonadotropins," my RE said this morning, and all I could think of was Phil Spector's legendary wall of sound, a stringed sonic juggernaut that mercilessly crushed everything in its path, most regrettably Let It Be, the Beatles' final release.

I started injections tonight.  Now, if you can still hear me over the splatting sound of my poor wizened ovaries hitting the cinderblocks and Spector's diabolical band of warbling angels, I have a question.  I am not yet  experienced in the ways of the Gonal-F pen.  I started out with a full one, but in a burst of hostly desperation I passed it around at my last dinner party and things got a little out of hand, if you know what I mean, what with the [stab-stab-stabbing gesture] and the [eyes rolling back in head and tongue lolling].  So what I'd like to know is how I can tell how much medication is left in the pen.  I have tried everything I can think of:

  1. Staring at it for a good long time
  2. Squinting while staring at it for a good long time

But that isn't doing it.  Please help.  But be sure to type in all caps because it's really fucking loud in here.
