    OUCH! that looks sore, I did have one patch that looked probably as bad, maybe not quite as bad but it wasn't minor either and took ages to go away completely. Ive only done clex a little bit tho. what flab

    its good news about your DH @Blossom74. coming to the decision lifted both of us and DH is more optimistic definitely. So I do think they bottle stuff up

    @Blossom74 I have had bruising like that, and I've seen some in my support group that was worse!

    It's really important to do the following to try and limit bruising:
    - put the tip of the needle on your belly, if it stings, move to another area
    -have the bevel bit of the needle down, ie you can see the angle and the hole where the liquid comes out, have that facing the floor
    - make sure the needle is straight, don't go in on an angle
    - flick/shake the needle so the air bubble is at the top and near the plastic part of the plunger
    - inject slowly
    - apply a little pressure afterwards
    - I sometimes ice before and after, especially if I can't find an area to inject where it doesn't sting

    Exactly. What flab At bl00dy 90 kilos TRUST ME there is plenty of it. I certainly don't need other people pointing it out though

    That's the same bruising I get every time unfortunately. I am gradually jabbing up higher and higher but the darker patches haven't been jabbed for 2 weeks!

    It's not too painful unless I lean onto it. But there is a hard marble-like lump on the darkest part, and that hurts if I push on it. So obviously I try not to do that. I was just wondering if it was 'normal.'

    Hmmm, well I do most of that I don't normally ice because who has the time, right?! Actually, I don't flick the syringe either. I thought the bubble was meant to be at the bottom of the syringe. Hmmm, better check that next time. I guess the 'good news' is that I only have 2 more to go and I can stop it anyway.....I'll keep going until BT results, obviously.

    @Blossom74 awww that's looks massive compared to mine(this is where my tummy fat comes useful for once in life XD)...I normally move to a new spot if it hurts when I try to put the needle through the skin.
    @Tahli, I got pessaries from Dr m script from CW, it costs 124 for 30 of 200mg, I claimed 41 back from PHI. Not cheap for sure. I am still using the crinone gel grabbed through stim.
