Just look at that progesterone.
That's P-R-O-G-E-S-T-E-R-O-N-E with a "G"
Definitely not a "J." Why would anyone think such a thing.
These are some of the needles I've used over the course of this process. The one on the right was for my Follistim, and it's the same size as the ones for my Lupron (I used insulin syringes for those) and for my Ovidrel (which is HCG to trigger ovulation before my egg retrieval).
The needle on the left is for drawing up the progesterone. It's pink. PINK = PAIN. That's my way to remember to not use it for injection. That and the fact that it's the size of my pinky.
The middle needle is for my progesterone. It's gray. GRAY = GIVE.
Just to give you another shot, look at the size of that opening!
So, I draw up the PIO (progesterone in oil), and it really looks like vegetable oil, with the pink needle.
Then, I switch out the top to the gray needle for injection.
Tomorrow's my big day...the day of my beta test to see if I'm pregnant.
