Response to Giant needles for Progesterone in Oil?
I actually tried to get a visiting nurse to do my injections when my dh was going to be out of town (when I didn't have to see the needle when he did the injections I was fine, but holding the needle and jabbing myself seemed impossible).
I went to the clinic and got a nurse to draw the injection sites on my body, and after a slew of pep talks from the ladies on the board, I finally got up the nerve to give myself the injection...and you know what? They absolutely didn't hurt at all (I iced the injection site for 5 minutes before administering, and I used a heating pad and massage after the shot to help - but I had done that same thing with my dh, but still got lumps and had lots of pain after the shots).
I agree with everyone on the board. You CAN do it, and you will probably surprise yourself that it doesn't hurt (at least not like you thought it would).
All the best and let us know how it works out!
