When I worried about infertility, because I was an anovulatory twenty-one year old, it was not an unfounded thought. When I worry about pregnancy loss, it's never been unfounded. I will admit, I do worry a lot... but usually it's for a good reason.
But the fear of my subcutaneous injection, that was indeed unfounded.
I don't know if it's because the Go.nal-f Pen's needles are so small, or because I iced the area up beforehand... but it was easy, and "like slicing butter with a hot knife" (as someone told me) Whew. Don't know what I was all worked up about! I did have issues with the site bleeding a bit afterward, but it was just a couple drops of blood. Not like it was gushing. A Fairy Bandage fixed it right up :)
Day one of injectables down. Ultrasound and blood work coming up on Friday. Hopefully we're on the right track.
Sorry, I just can't get over how easy that was. I was freaking out about it, and for what? I literally didn't feel it.
Maybe this time was a fluke though...
I guess I'll find out tomorrow!
