Are air bubbles dangerous in either of the shots, particularly the HCG shots or do they just decrease the amount of HCG in the vial? I cannot, so matter how slow I go, not have air bubbles in the syring and tapping isn't getting rid of them. I get so frustrated that I've been giving myself HCG injections with usually 1 air bubble still in it. I haven't had any weird side effects and I'm still losing so is this a big deal?
Secondly, are the B-12 shots necessary? I inject myself on my thigh and it so painful, not only while I'm doing it but my leg hurts for at least a day afterwards. Can I skip these? Does everyone take them? Will it decrease my losses if I stop?
