I gave myself my first injection tonight. It did not hurt at all. I was pretty surprised. I had to give myself a subcu. injection in the abdomen.

The first one is the toughest... it's a piece of cake for all that follow.

Glad to hear especially since the girl I work with who gave herself injections had a rough time.

yay!! It's really not too bad. I did all the sub Q abdominal ones by myself...

but it's the IM ones later (progestorone in oil *shudder*) that hurt like a sunuvamoocow once it starts getting sore.

I can handle that tiny insulin needle ANY day now!!

Keep up the good work, you can do this!!!

Awesome!!! Are you doing IVF with ICSI? I can't remember. What does the Lupron do?

Yes, I am doing IVF with ICSI. Lupron desensitizes GNRH receptors in the brain to prevent secretion of the gonadotropins (FSH and LH). This basically prevents ovulation from occuring while the follicle are maturing.

Cool! Thanks for letting me know. I have a really good feeling it is going to work for you on the first try.

Aww, thanks! I hope it does too! My next big step to worry about is having enough good eggs.
