I had to get a steroid shot in the butt once for an allergic reaction I had to something. My face EXPLODED in hives! It hurt because it was a big needle to get through all that faaaaaat, but I guess it wasn’t that bad.

Butt shots are nothing. The fat helps. Arms hurt way more.

while I was living in costa rica i had to get shots in the butt all the time! They don’t do pills or anything for antibotics. they do butt shots! They aren’t that bad! you may feel akward, i did, and then have some slight pain after, but it is not that bad! I promise!

I have to get this. It’s believed that the butt is the best place for a shot because of the “extra padding” lol πŸ™‚

i got it a few weeks ago- and it was more like hip/butt area.  I didn’t know it was going to be there so it was a funny moment when I presented my arm and the nurse said “nope not there…”  thank goodness I had on cute undies πŸ™‚   Anyway the nurse said it would hurt later, and it didn’t.  and the shot itself didn’t hurt at all either.  She said I would be sore in that area and asked me what side I slept on.  I told her the wrong side and was worried I would be uncomfortable that night- but I didn’t feel achey or bruised or anything!  easy peasy!!

I got a B12/B6 shot yesterday on the left side, and it sucked. However, last week I had it on the right side and I barely felt it.

What’s the “butt shot” do exactly? I had to open this post and see what “butt shot” you meant since there are several πŸ™‚

If I’m O+ will I have to get when I have kids?

I’ve had this shot and it really really wasn’t that bad. I’m also AB- and it was given to me”just in case” after my medical abortion to prevention sensitization and complications with future pregnancies. 

I also am a HUGE wimp when it comes to needles. I used to pass out and cry and shriek and kick. Totally terrified of needles. This shot..really.. not so bad. I had it in the arm.

I had to have a steroid shot in the butt last year. It didn’t hurt at all when the nurse gave me the shot. But it only took about 10 minutes for the area to become sore. It was tender to touch but it wasnt unbearable or anything. (As far as I can remember) It was fine by the time I went to sleep that night. I am a big baby when it comes to shots! It’s a big deal for me to say it didnt hurt!

P.S. I’m super glad you posted this! I’m coming up on my Rhogam shot too and was wondering about the location today!

@zuzubelle: No, it’s the negative part in AB- (or B-, A- etc etc) that makes it so your body could have a reaction to the fetus and basically try to destroy it causing a miscarriage.

Now that I think about it though, I’m pretty sure my Mom had to do something special because my blood was O+ when she was pregnant……I have so much to learn about having babies….
