Don't panic! The trigger shot was nothing! It didn't hurt at all!

First - it it goes in your belly, not your arm. In my case, way more fat there! So, much less tender!

Honestly, aside from a little pinch, I didn't even really feel the trigger shot. I was in a bit of a daze, because it meant everything was starting to happen for real. But, otherwise, really no big deal.

I didn't really even feel any side effects until way later - and, can't even say for sure if it was side effects, or pregnancy at this point. After all, that's what it mimics. The Clomid will have kick started that for you.

I am online for a little longer (I see you are too) if you want...
