ganirelix shot = ouch



ugh- the ganirelix needles are a bit bigger than the gonal-f ones- but it's usually not an issue. however, as you can see, it was this morning.
i pinched the skin & went to pop the needle in & i literally had to shooove it in. it HURT! but whatever- i stuck it in, pulled back on the plunger- no blood- and injected away. then i pulled the needle out & BOOM- bloooood. lovely. aaaanyway- after a nice big, itchy bump & a red rash- this is what is left. it hurts too. ::cries::
and i have to do it again tomorrow morning- perhaps i'll try a different tactic...
you can also see how bloated i am- it's very sexy. believe me.
Pin It!

Oh no! I'm so sorry! And I am now no longer looking forward to doing them myself during this cycle. Yuck!

OUCH!! That looks like it hurts! :( I only did one big prefilled shot of Ganirelix at the end-- I think it was an emergency salvage cycle kind of think since my E2 was spiking! Sorry you have to keep doing these :(

Whoa. That looks like it hurt!
And it all has to be in the belly? Yeesh!

Ouch! I'm not good with the belly shots, I hope the next one is better.

Oh no! Ouch!

I might be doing the ganirelix shots as well. They ordered them for me "just in case". I hope you don't have to do these too much longer!
