I was wondering if anyone here has had them?

Can you tell me about your experience please?

(I don't post here often, once in a blue moon... I'm Celena TTCAL cohost) Sorry for not posting more often and just coming with a question. I don't know many people who've had these and looking for experiences if any?

thank you ladies!!

Hi Celena

I have done about 2 weeks worth of Progesterone injections in the past. I had the nurse draw circles on my upper outer umm....hips...uh... you get the picture. I would draw up the PIO with an 18g needle, and then switch to a 25g to inject. Then I would lay down on the bed and bend the knee of my top leg a little, clean the spot I was going to inject, and insert the needle with a dart like motion. I found that even though the needle looked scary, it went in very easily, and painlessly. After pulling back on the plunger a bit, to make sure there was no blood in it, I would inject the medicine slowly and steadily, and then pull out the needle. I would always have DH at the ready with a bandaid. After the bandaid was on, I would put a heating pad on the site, and DH would give it a little massage. HTH!

Agenda, thank you lol I appreciate you giving me your routine. I was hoping to be able to do these myself, Dh isn't going to able to go to the appt with me to learn how to do them.

I hear they're super thick and leave you pretty sore... anything like tetnus shots, that thick stuff you can feel as they push down the plunges

I did them during my pregnancy with the twins, because they have been shown to help prevent preterm labor.

The needle is way scarier looking than it feels. My husband did mine, and it really wasn't bad at all. I did get a bit sore. The progesterone is really thick, so it does take a sec to draw up, and also to inject.
