In brief: Yes
The im injections in the buttocks often cause discomfort.
Definitely alternate the injection side each day. Also ask your fertility nurse to draw a larger target to spread the injections around a wider area. Walking often helps mobilize the oil. Fortunately, you will not need to take the injections forever.
