Buzzy® has been used to block pain from over 31 million needle procedures. Just like cool running water soothes a burn, Buzzy uses a patented combination of cold and vibration to replace IVF shot pain with temperature and movement. Over 20 independent clinical trials prove Buzzy® works!
“I fear needles and was about to start my first round of IVF. Thank you, Buzzy® for getting me through it, I now use it for my 18month old son!"
Buzzy® can help ease the pain associated with injections, making life during In-Virto Fertilization rounds easier to manage.
Drug free, clinically proven, trusted by hospitals and safe for any age.
In a study of IV insertions, Buzzy® reduced pain by half compared with topical pain relievers – and by 81 percent compared with doing nothing.
"The use of vibratory stimulation via the Buzzy® unit significantly decreased pain compared to cold spray alone, decreasing pain 1.3 points on the NPRS and 1.76 on the WBPFS (p=.022, .030). The authors conclude Buzzy® "provided a worthwhile decrease on associated injections... cost effective, user friendly, and well tolerated pain management adjunct."
HOW DOES BUZZY® BLOCK FERTILITY SHOT PAIN UP TO 80%?
The gate control theory is the basis for the design of Buzzy®.
When nerves receive non-painful signals (such as the vibration or cold of Buzzy), the brain closes the gate on pain signals (like the injection).
Imagine you hit your finger with a hammer. You might instinctively begin to rub it, shake it, or run it under cold water. You are sending non-pain signals through your nerves to close the gate on the pain signals!
So how can Buzzy® work on more distant injections? Well, while gate control happens locally (confusing nerves right where the pain happens) another effective method of pain control uses the brain’s ability to dampen out unwanted signals – as in with intense cold. ❄️
Instead of happening right where the nerves are, an intense degree of cold can work anywhere on the body.
Buzzy®'s patented combination of vibration and cold is proven to block injection pain and decrease the anxiety of shots by up to 80%!
HOW DO I USE BUZZY® FOR MY FERTILITY SHOTS?
To get sufficient follicles and eggs for the in vitro fertilization process, the mom-to-be is stimulated with injected medications (Lupron, FSH, HCG) to develop multiple follicles. The technique for giving the injections is easy to learn, but the injections can be painful. Buzzy® can help ease the pain of these injections.
Always follow your doctor’s recommended technique. Choose your injection site (abdomen, thigh, or back of upper arm); if possible,use a different spot for the next shot. Buzzy® should be placed “between the brain and the pain.” For the stomach, the nerves run sideways coming around from the back towards the belly button; place the bottom of Buzzy® on the line lateral to the umbilicus. On the arms, the nerves run straight down (fingers to shoulders to spine). On the thigh, the nerves run diagonally from the inner thigh around to the back of the spine.
"I got this for my intramuscular injections for IVF and I'm so glad I did! I had to do at least one injection every day for 6+ weeks. When I followed the directions I literally couldn't feel the injections at all. The few times I didn't follow the directions completely or chose not to use the buzzy I could definitely tell the difference and regretted it. I highly recommend it!"
"Thank you so much for creating this life saver! I have been telling all my Mommy friends about your product as well as my IVF warriors. Attached are two pictures of my son he is now 18 months old! I have been using it for his vaccinations and when he had to have his blood drawn for lead screening, such a BIG Help!"
"I used the Buzzy device as an adult going through IVF injections. The vibration device was a good distraction for me, and helped make the daily injections pain free! The mini size was fine for me, and I liked that it was portable and I could travel with it in my bag. I would recommend this product for children & adults who may be going through frequent shots."
Distraction can reduce pain by up to 50%, often better than medical pain relief. These brightly colored cards on a convenient snap ring make a parent or staff able to distract like a pro!
