Meems, I completely understand how you feel. I was terrified of injecting myself but I think after a couple of shots it's quite ok. I must say I got a bit of a shock the first night I had to do the orgalutran (I cried afterwards) because the needle is a bit thicker but I found doing that one in my thigh (pinched really tight) was heaps easier than the tummy and having the pointiest bit on the underside seemed to let it slip in easier. I also don't think I was prepared for that one to sting (a reaction to the liquid, not the needle) so I thought I'd done it wrong, but that also seemed to be much less painful in the thigh. Best of luck!
