Show and Tell: Needles
**In you do not like the sight of needles, you may want to skip this show and tell**
It's time again for Mel's Show and Tell.
In honor of me triggering tonight, and being TOTALLY done with shots for my IVF cycle, I am showing a comparison of the various types of needles used for my shots this cycle.
The second needle was used for my Meno.pur shots. It's a subcutaneous (Sub-Q), shot, meaning it is injected under the skin. It was 0.5 inches (1.27 cm).
Then comes the needle used for my Lu.pron shot. It's an insulin needle, also a sub-Q shot. Also 0.5 inches.
Finally, the needle used on the Follis.tim pen. That too is a sub-Q shot, and again about 0.5 inches.
Unfortunately, well actually fortunately for me, I am not doing the progesterone in oil (PIO) shots, so I don't have that to show.
So what are YOU showing or telling? Go check out what the rest of the class is showing at Mel's and join the fun by doing some showing and telling of your own.
