Yes! The ganirelix needle is awful! And the med itself used to leave me little red welts for a day or two. I don't have a problem giving myself the IM shots...I've done b12 shots in the past...but I know the PIO hurts because its in oil. I have has patients tell me the best bet is to ice first, the. Heat after the shot. And it makes sense, since its oil, the heat helps the medication spread into the muscle tissue instead of staying and leaving a nasty knot. I will also be doing crinone after and estrace, too.
Vegas--yup, u/s with or without AF. Fun stuff!
