& it was pretty simple but the thing I was impressed with most is that there were lots of needles in the package with the cartridge. I know... the simple things amuse me! Seriously though I was wondering about more needles b/c I looked at the original 8 I got with the pen itself & knew I needed more than 8. Now I have plenty! Woo-hoo!

LOL I was worried about the needles too when I got my kit! I was like... this is NOT going to cut it! I was relieved to see them in there!

Hope this does it for ya!!

Oh trust me, I was too. The needle poke itself is soooooooooooo easy! You can read about some of our first needle pokes here... http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f7...e-buddies.html (Injectable Buddies! =)) (posts 11, 35, 37). If you read through some of the other posts you'll see the trigger shot updates & how they went as well. GL!!!

YouTube - First follistim shot

From one needle phobe to another it's not that bad! I did Ovidrel as my first shots before the Follistim Pen and the pen is cake!
