    It’s been 12 hours and it’s the most painful after - injection I’ve ever had... (and I’ve had my fair share)!
    I’m on 6 pessories per day too. (1200)
    No I’m terrible with needles, my poor husband has jabbed me for all 14 cycles I have no idea how you could physically do it yourself with the pio anyway since it goes into the bum? Would be very awkward positioning!
    I find after a few weeks it’s not as sensitive. I had such different reactions for each pio injection, sometimes it was itchy, sometimes sore, sometimes it bruised, sometimes it didn’t 🤷🏼‍♀️ It always bled after so I used bandaids to save my undies! I was taking it every day and would alternate sides. We’d also try and find a spot that wasn’t bruised or lumpy. I’ve been off it for 3 or 4 weeks and still have lumps under the skin and a bit of itchiness

    Oh I’m fine with needles but theSe are something else! Did your hubby give you the pio?

    I did PIO for 16 weeks. Not the most fun time I’m afraid.

    I did the injections myself, just in the upper outer quadrant of my bum. Rotate sides each time and a slightly different spot. Try to avoid injecting into a lump if you can. It’s actually not that hard to reach once you get the hang of it - you really do want the upper outer sides as it hurts more in the middle of your bum anyway!

    I didn’t use ice but some ladies say that helps. Emla gel is another option.

    My technique was:
    - warm vial in your bra for 10-15 mins (if it’s a multi use vial then draw up into syringe then rub syringe back and forth fast in your palms so friction warms it)
    - hold needle in your closed palm with thumb on top ready to inject
    - stab it in fast but inject super slowly
    - I white often m bled so have tissue or something handy. If it bleeds apply pressure for a couple of minutes
    - I then used to lie down for about 15-20 minutes on a hot wheat bag - the warmth helps disperse the oil to help prevent hard painful lumps forming
    - then give it a good massage
    - each day I’d massage injection areas regularly (eg every time I’d pop to loos I’d give myself a quick massage). I used Arnica oil which is brilliant but not sure if available here in Oz or what alternative might be. If you use anything like that don’t use for a few hours either side of injection

    Feel free to pm me if you have any Q’s as I am not in here that often.

    Best of luck

    Yep he did all of them. But he’s a paramedic so that helps!

    Hello ladies I am starting to think about if my DE journey is successful do you tell the child the truth on how they were conceived?

    To the ladies that have DE children have you told them and if not do you plan to tell them in the future?

    Hi @Makeuplover40, I haven’t had a baby as yet on this journey however I do intend to always be honest. I plan to explain it at their earliest of understanding.
