Don: That is very sweet for you to offer to take your wife's progesterone shots for her! However, you are right, that would not help the cause any!!
Unfortunately the progeserone shots are the worst! The oil is so thick, there is not much you can do, but keep reminding yourself why you are going through all of this to begin with. One tip I can give you....take the bottle of progesterone and place it under your arm pit or in your wife's bra...somewhere close to the body, to warm the oil...this helps thin the solution a little, to make it little easier going in. Also, make sure you are alternating injection sites...if you are injecting in her hips (where I did my injections) switch back and forth from left to right each night. No matter what there will be some bruising and discomfort.....but like I said before...Just keep reminding yourselves why you are doing all of this!
I would also place an icepack on my hip for about 1 min before my dh injected me....this helps with the needle, but not much for actual injection.
After you get pregant, all of this will become a distant memory! It is hard to believe that now, but, I, along with the other success stories on this site, are living proof!!
