Guess what? It doesn’t hurt- I PROMISE! This is coming from a person who was just as nervous and just as unwilling to do injections as you are right now.
After doing 5 rounds of hCG Injections myself now, let me tell you my beginning story of wimpiness. I had no intention of doing injections. Way too nervous about that idea. I was going to do the sublingual hCG method (aka rx hCG Drops). But there were 2 things that made me reconsider. First of all, I’m cheap. When using RX hCG Drops you have to use twice as much hCG as for injections, thus costing twice as much. Secondly and most important, I really wanted to make sure that I got the exact amount of hCG that I was supposed to get into my bloodstream. The only way to be completely positive of this and have 100% absorption was to use injections. With drops, there is lot that doesn’t get absorbed under the tongue but gets swallowed instead, how much is absorbed is affected by how long you hold it under your tongue and how long you waited to eat and drink both before and after taking the hCG Drops (which is why you have to take twice as much hCG because of how much doesn’t get absorbed)- it was just too many variables for me to feel comfortable with since I knew that the hCG was not a placebo and wanted to get the best results possible.
SO- for those of you who really don’t want to do injections, yet in the back of your mind you’re reading the answer to this question because you feel like maybe you should try the injections anyway, TRY IT! See what’s next…..
True story: I made my husband do my first 3 days of injections on Round 1. That’s how nervous and how much I didn’t want to do them. I couldn’t work up the nerve to do them myself. I didn’t even look like while he did the injection on me. I closed my eyes, looked away, and kept asking “have you done it yet? have you done it yet?” I kept waiting for that moment of pain that all my nervousness was about. When he said yes, he’d already stuck the needle in, I said, “really????” I hadn’t felt a thing. Really- not a thing.
What Does an hCG Injection feel like?
Okay, so in all reality, there will be times when you feel a slight sensation when you do your injection- many times the hCG injections don’t hurt at all and I don’t feel anything. Sometimes it feels a little like if you take a mechanical pencil tip and push it against your thigh a little bit- you can’t honestly say it hurts but you do feel something.
The ONLY time it has hurt significantly was when I had already lost a lot of fat and was trying to inject into an are that no longer had very much fat and that I had already injected into many many times. Maybe scar tissue, maybe not enough fat, maybe both, I don’t know. I just stopped that and found a fattier place to inject and all was well again.
As long as you keep finding nice fatty areas to inject into (stomach, belly, inner and outer thighs, etc) it will not be uncomfortable. It’s a mental thing more than anything else, because it really doesn’t hurt. You’ll be an old pro in no time.
