Hey Holly.
The IM shots I do are the HCG trigger and the PIO shots. I do them in the hip/butt area. I was once told not to do them in the thigh area if i ever wanted to walk again! the needles are one and a half inches long and quite thick so i don't see the thigh as being a good spot.
all the sub-Q needles are much thinner and shorter so they work good in the thigh. i do lupron in the top of my thigh but not IM, it is sub-Q. the needles are so tiny they could never reach a muscle. so maybe you will be spared the IM shots? that would be the luckiest thing!
did you get something for your trigger shot? and remind me, are you doing progesterone supplements or not?
i wonder if the patches are estrogen? i've heard of them before but not sure how they fit in with an IVF cycle.
I have PIO shots afterwards and also crinone gel twice a day. i am not real fond of the idea of sticking gel up there twice a day but you know i'll do what i have to do. I do the HCG as an IM shot. that one isn't bad. last time i took prometrium but orally. seems like no doctors do the same thing. and believe me, if you were going to do IM shots you'd see 22 gauge 1.5 inch needles in your stuff. and you'd know what they were for :eek:
