Does it happen to all after having progesterone?


I have been on progesterone injections for the past two weeks after the ET...
Its been a tough time from then ...
I am getting fever, headache, body pains, vomiting sensations and apart from all these my bum is swelling a lot due to the injections...
The place on bum where the injections are taken is getting hard and reddish and is paining a lot...

Does this happen to all who take progesterone injection after ET...

Hi, Rashmi - I have not taken the \progesteron injections myself but I am concerned that the spot you are injecting on is red, hard and swollen. Are you alternating sides when you inject? The problem is that if your injection technique is not correct you do run the risk of getting an abscess at the site so I would advise that you have it checked especially as you are reporting fever!!!!
NAusea could easily be a side effect of the progesteron though...

I've been on progesterone for the last month, although oral not injection, and have experienced the side effects you describe but it is best that you speak to your consultant really, particulalry about the area where you have been injecting.

Have we supported you? Can you support us?

RE: Does it happen to all after having progesterone?

hi Rashmi, little bit of bruising and tenderness is expected after any injections. But if the area is getting red, hot, and painful and you have got fever and malaise as well so you should go and see your doctor or atleast ring them and let them know. You might be getting abscess.

Hmmmm... yep, hot and hard area where you're injecting doesn't sound brill. Could be a bit of scar tissue building up. Are you varying the injections site hun?

Hey Rashmi: I've been on the Gestone progesterone injections for 4 weeks and have to continue for another 6 weeks. My bum is sore and bruised on both sides and i got hard lumps to.

Well yesterday i deceided to put the ampulate in my bra to warm it alittle for about 10mins before the injection was did that make a differernce having the injection and after. I felt hardly anything while dh was giving it and i had hardly any stinging after, i got no bruise for the first time either.
When we first started doing th injections my bum also swelled but that has eased with time that i atually get no swelling now. But having a fever with it is something that you'd probably wanna phone your clinic about.

Good luck
