Progesterone Shot

I have a blood clot by my uterus and my doctor prescribed me to take a progesterone shot once a week. Well, I woke up this morning and both places I got the shot at from the past 2 weeks were swollen, red, splotchy around it and looks like a huge rash that itches. Has anyone had this occur from this shot?

  • I was on the shot until I was 12 weeks and my arm would just be sore for a few days. You should call your doctor and let them know what is going on.

  • Iam currently pregnant w/my 4th child on this shot & thats a very normal reaction. Ive been getting them since 16 wks & im not 32 wks and got them with my last 3 pregnancys up to wk 36 and they are still very painful injections & leave my butt check red, swollen, rash looking & black & blued. Its a very nasty shot...:(
