    I am absolutely petrified of needles. I had my hubby do the first few injections. I found it helpful to lay down initially. It really didnt hurt at all. After a few days i was doing them on my own.
    Good luck with your cycle.

    ^^this. Count to 3 and jab it in quick - just straight in. I found thinking about it worse than actually doing it. Good luck with your cycle x

    I too was petrified of needles and was having anxiety attacks whenever I had to think about needles
    I got the nurses at the ivf clinic to do the first 4 days because I was soo scared - on the 5th day the nurse told me I had to do it myself because she hurt her hand and I no choice
    - forced me to suck it up
    Now on 4th cycle and feel like an old hand - can even do my own trigger shot

    The Gonal F needle is nice and small. I get my DP to do mine, but about half the time i barely feel it ☺
