Well the HCG trigger shot has to be given intramuscularly, so if you're giving it to yourself that means in the thigh if you have someone else give it it means in the butt.
It wasn't TERRIBLE, but it definitely wasn't a pleasant experience. I iced my leg for a few minutes while I mixed up the medication then just did it! Sometimes after giving blood or getting a shot I'll feel like I'm about to pass out, and it happened last night....which sucked, but I just laid on the kitchen floor after giving myself the shot for a bit to regroup then I was fine. I will say, once I had the needle in I had a tough time squeezing the medication out, the needle kept trying to push out. My leg was a bit sore the next morning, probably b/c I jabbed a 1.5 inch needle into my muscle and injected 2ML's of medication last night....I took some advil and hopefully it'll help!
