Tonight is my last night with luprin and first night with progesterone, which I hear hurts a lot. Great. We went to injection class back in August and don't remember much. Even though we have a handout with directions, I'm worried! The clinic recommended a website to watch videos fertilitylifelines - but I don't see the progesterone one on there. I'm going to use this one for example tonight

I didn't think it hurt too bad. I've heard putting an ice pack on the area before, and rubbing/applying heat afterwards can help, but I didn't do anything special. I did develop "lumps" at the injection site which took a couple months to resolve once shots were done. Good luck!

I used ice before injecting, and had no pain.
