Apparently you can do subq into the thigh too by pulling up the skin.

Glad you pulled through, Susan! :) But seriously, Shot Anxiety sucks. Sometimes a little fluid would leak out after I did a shot and I'd be convinced I didn't get enough of the meds in. Oy! Hang in there -- hopefully after this cycle you will never have to do shots again.

When I was taking Bravelle, I always used my stomach because it was sub-q.

OMG, Susan...

My RE already told me that injectibles are what she's thinking so far. I am MORTIFIED of needles. I can't even look when they take blood for fear I'll pass out. Don't ask me how a make it through acupuncture. That doesn't even phase me - but a needle going in like that far! OMG...

Well, if you only have three pricks, then that's pretty good. I'd end up with hundreds with my hands shaking all over the place!! Jeez! I'll need to hire a nurse...
