    Angry inflamed injection sites

    Ok now I am an old hand on doing my hcg shots... ex nurse so know nothing wrong with technique or sterility
    Yet after week one it is almost if my body gives me an allergic reaction.... injection site fine till about 6-8 hours later... becomes red... sore... raised and inflamed... this goes away in about 2 days but slightly sore for another day

    I am happy that today is my skip day and I did an infra red heat massage eith aloe vera gel and it seemed to ease down a bit fir now

    Has anyone else experienced this before?
    Could it mean that my hcg is trapped and thus my unprecedented losses?
    Even though this is an external topical inflammentation... can this be regarded as inflammentation ito HCG?

    Going to give my thighs a rest for a couple of days and see if it improves

    As i said.. never happened to me before?

    Are you using a different solution to mix? If it is not just bacteriostatic water or bacteriostatic sodium chlorde, and contains other ingredients, one of them could be the problem. I had a similar site reaction to lipotropics.

    Exactly the same I have always used.... no changes other than new brand.... but no reaction first 10 days....

    We do not get bacteriostatic water over the counter... but using the same mix i have slwats used before

    I googled a bit yesterday and it seems a common problem with ladies/and on Fertility treatment (admittedly their doses are bigger)
    and all the advice given, I am already doing, except for ONE

    One site advised to take the dose of of the fridge about 30 minutes beforehand and leave at room temperature
    I have 15 minutes time this morning... and 3 hours later and no sign of inflammation... fingers crossed...

    You can warm the syringe by tucking it under your arm for a couple minutes before injecting. That might help more than just bringing to room temp as your body runs a bit higher than room temp.

    For tummy injecting, the least amount of nerve endings seem to be about two inches out from the navel. I found it comfortable to inject there.

    I've never been able to do my tummy, since my first two rounds were drops and pellets. By the time I got to the third round, my tummy was flats nd could grab nothing. My thighs though always seem to have some extra fat hanging around their mid to lower portions.

    I did do my tummy yesterday... did form a bit of a lump but not as angry and inflamed and sore as my thighs... Mist of my fat is over the upper torso.... only have a few more shots left before mixing again.. really baffled

    Day 3 of shots in tummy....
    Very slight "awareness" but no aggravation... My thighs still have a couple of humps with two spots (last shots) still angry and sore.... Both of my thighs are now itching... the way sores itch when they start healing......
    So maybe I have been struggling with a level of inflammation.... will have to see how it goes from here

    Just so weird in that I have always only used my thighs.... but admittedly most of my weight is over my mid section...

    Lets see where it goes... need to mix a new batch this weekend and going to try mixing it with B12 for the first time ever... but will first try and see if I can get bacteriostatic whater from the hospital Pharmacy
