Ok, so today is my day for my shot, and NO ONE will give it to me. (Everyone is scared of the big ol' needle). My husband is back home and I'm still on vacation at my aunt's house. The shot is intramuscular, as you may know, and my husband/nurses have been doing it in my hip area/upper butt cheek. I am wondering if it is possible for me to give it to myself. I won't be home until Saturday morning, and I don't want to wait that long to take it.
Is it possible to inject it elsewhere? Getting it in that area is going to be next to impossible on my own. I don't really mind giving it to myself (and I watched while my husband was taught), but I don't think I can physically do it in the location that they've told me to do it at.
Whew.... That was pretty scary at first, but I managed to do it. I had my mom watch so I knew when the needle was all of the way in, and when I had finally emptied the friggin' thing into my *****! LOL! (Once, I got the needle in, pushing the progesterone in was the hardest thing). I was a little lightheaded after (and still am, a little), but I'm glad I did it!
Thanks for the support, ladies... I honestly don't know what I'd do without you all!
