How long is the needle he's using?

Did he put the needle all the way in?

How much do you weigh? Thank you.

I don't think you have anything to worry about as far as the progesterone reaching the muscle. You most likely have less than an inch of subcutaneous tissue before the needle reaches the muscle.

In my experience, most nurses don't don't pull the skin taut before giving IM injections, the way they demonstrate on the how-to videos. Just inserting the needle straight in and up to the hilt will make sure that the needle tip is into the muscle. You should be fine. good luck with the IVF.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
