Gestone injections... numb patches?

Hey ladies...

Random thread.... I am using gestone injections as progesterone hasn't been working for me this cycle.

Anyway, I quickly found out that OMG the injections hurt so much more than stimms.

My gp has prescribed emla cream so I can number the area before I inject. But something weird is happening... I have noticed that I have numb patches around my hip/tip of my thigh/buttock area. But never at the injection site. Is this normal?

I had a steroid injection into my coccyx a few months ago... could it maybe be that? Obviously I never noticed the numb patches until i started these injections.

Hi, confratulations on your pregnancy! I did these injections for months and my butt cheeks didn't return to normal for months even after I stopped the jabs. The stims injections go just under your skin, these ones are straight into muscle and thats why they are so much more painful! I would say what you're saying sounds very similar to what I felt but obviously having had a steroid injection too it might be best just to check with your clinic. Best of luck x
