I did my first ever PIO shot tonight. It was just about the only part of fertility treatments I had never experienced. So, now we can mark that off the list, too. I asked for a prescription for EMLA cream, which is a lidocaine/prilocaine cream. OMG- awesome. I didn’t feel anything when I did the shot. It was completely painless.
I’m slightly concerned that maybe I did it wrong, it was so painless. But, needle stabbed into upper outer quadrant of buttocks (I really love the word buttocks). Needle in all the way, injected oil. Can I have screwed it up?
Anyway, highly recommend the EMLA cream. I had to do the shot myself and that really, really helped.
