I use the pens...two every other week...I rotate between the thighs, lower stomach and upper stomach...this way it takes six weeks before i come back to the same area...if you are doing one weekly and follow the same pattern but add in the fact that you have two sides in each area to shoot (left and right side) then you also have a six week cycle and certainly after six weeks the prvious site has healed completely and the chances of you actually hitting the the same exact spot as before is very very slim.
even if you are doing two shots per week...your cycle time is still three weeks and that should be plenty.
I did my second set of injections last night. This post has helped me a lot. I did one kind of close to the old ones (about 1inch) I was chicken to try the tummy. My hubby caught me and said isn't that a little close to the last one? I told him I would try the tummy next time.
hspenser, rotating is a great idea cause it is hard to mark down on paper where I gave the shots before.
