    Trigger Shot Site Red and a little puffy
    superchickie2003 posted:
    I am new to the process of infertility and administering shots. I have been to the fertility specialist 5 times in the last few weeks (12/2, 12/15, 12/22,12/24,12/26). After yesterday's visit I was given the go ahead to administer my HCG trigger shot to release the follicle in my ovary. The shot was to be injected into the abdomen, which I did, but now the injection site is a little red and a little swollen. Should this still be the case? Anyone experience this after giving themselves the trigger shot?

    Please help.

    I used to get an allergic reaction for one of my shots. It may gaffe been the trigger shot. I am allergic to latex and the stopper on the bottle was made of latex. You may want to inquire about it, but there was no substitute that did not contain latex.
