I had my first progesterone shot yesterday. The shot itself wasn't that bad. Very big needle, because the med is so thick. It burned really bad for several hours afterward. Today the site is sore to touch/ bump. Anyone else have to take these? For me it is supposed to ward off any preterm labor because I have a history of it. I keep thinking 19 of these, OMG!

Ouch! I've never had to take those. I do a B12 shot I give myself once a month but it's nothing as painful as that. So sorry it's sore and you have more to go. It's all for a good cause hang in there !!

I had to do one every morning with all my IVF rounds for a few weeks. Eventually you just get used to it. Make sure to rub vigorously afterwards, and I found that a heating pad helped as well. Also make sure that you are not standing on the leg of the corresponding shot side when the needle goes in- it will hurt more in a tense muscle. My husband hated having to do it to me!

Oh man.... I could not do it myself! I admire those who can. SO gives me my humira shots every two weeks (well until preggo) but those are SQ instead of IM. I went to my PCP and had them administer it. So are you supposed to rub it.... I didn't but I can see that might help distribute the med so it doesn't hurt so long. Granted it doesn't hold a candle to the humira which has caused me to have chest pain when given in the back of the arm.... but it is still very sore. SO was rubbing my back last night and accidentally got that spot on my hip and I did see stars for a moment. The nurse had me put that leg on a stool to take some of the pressure off... not sure if I had any weight on it. I will pay more attention next time about not having any weight on it to relax the muscle. Thanks! for the advice.

I had to get them once a day for about a month with my older son. They hurt so much at first but then I guess I kinda got used to them. After about a month of pre-term they finally gave me the oral version to take at home; it was so much easier.
