Shot Just Got Real

Tonight is the first night of stims, Gonal F to be exact. I’m starting to get really nervous. So far the Lupron has been no big deal, but I think the Gonal F has a bigger needle? Anyone know if this is true? I’ve been totally fine these last couple week with the Lupron, then wouldn’t you know it, this morning I hit a nerve with it and screamed! Oh my god, that hurt so bad. Now I’m like terrified of taking the bigger injection tonight. Anyone have any tips on avoiding nerves when you do your injections? What were your experiences with the Gonal F?

  1. I never had a problem with gonal F, but my nurse did tell me to avoid hitting nerves to try to do it around your belly button. I don’t know how true that is, because eventually the skin around my belly button got so bruised I had to move elsewhere, but I never hit a nerve. I think it’s a luck thing! Sorry you had to go through that ūüė¶
