I was TERRIFIED of my first shot. It was an IM HCG shot way back when I was first TTC with clomid and IUI. I was so scared. I iced and iced my backside and rubbed EMLA cream on it and, knees shaking, finally pushed the needle in...and felt absolutely nothing. Next HCG shot, I was in a public restroom when it was time for the shot and I had no ice and no EMLA...and it was STILL pretty much painless. Now granted those PIO shots can hurt a bit (the estrogen is too long ago for me to remember - over 4 yrs since I did the injectable) but it still is very easy. I am a massive weenie and still managed so bet you guys won't have a problem either.
