Would love some advice on the progesterone shots, if anyone has any. Been on them for over a week now, and the injections are fine (husband studied up and took a friend's advice to "commit" so very little pain) and the injection site is fine; I'm doing the massages and movement throughout the day (and we do the shots in the morning).
However: the sides of my legs and butt, nowhere near the injection site, are in a lot of pain. Both sides. Very tender and just painful right along the outer/upper thigh and hips, especially. I know the progesterone can settle around nerves and muscles which I assume is what's happened. I have not hit a nerve, we've been really careful about the zone for the shots. I also don't want to use a lot of heat for pain relief as I'm in the middle of the 2ww so for now I'm in pain every time I sit down, get up, brush past anything, etc.
My clinic had nothing much to say about this — I like my clinic and the people a lot but have found that personalized advice is hard to come by; they must get so many of the same questions that they don't even hear the details of a patient's issue and go straight to the stock answer.
