Advice & Tips: First time self injecting w 25g needle. 1 ml of solution for 5 days. It was scary at first but I got used to it. The pain was not in the injection it was the pain after the injection, swelling, aching...like taking a booster shot. Not as bad as I imagined though i doubt I could do this everyday.
