Entry points

We're 10 days before implant, and I have medications entering my body in almost every which way available.

I'm taking medication orally
I'm taking medication vaginally
I have hormone patches on my skin
I'm getting injections

Let's play a game.  How many medication delivery methods can you think of that aren't being utilized?  So far, I can identify three -

Ear drops

If you can identify a fourth (or beyond), I'll send you a coupon code for 15% off your purchase at my pottery store.

** Update **

We have our first two entries!

Alyssa has won a 15% coupon with "Eye Drops"!  Email me from the Contact Alex page and I'll send you the coupon code.

Becki - hmmmmmm, is an IV different enough from Injection to count as a whole new delivery method?  I think I'm going to have to call in the judge on this one.  K, your thoughts?

K here - Technically an IV is injecting the medication through a needle the same way a regular injection is.  So technically, it is not much different than the syringes we're using.  But I like your thinking so I'm making Alex give you a 10% off discount.

Alex again - Becki, look for my message on Artfire with your coupon code.

Anyone else have any ideas?

**Update 2**

Hmmm after consulting with our judge, we're gonna say that no, inhalers and nebulizers fall into the "Nasal" category and lotions actually enter the body the same way as the patches - absorbed through the skin.


  1. via IV? I hope they don't throw all the rest at you too ;) Wishing for the best for you and your hubby (((Alex)))

  2. I wish you the best of luck with your implant! Keep us posted!!

    Do eye drops count as medication?

  3. Via lotion!
    We administer certain medications simply by rubbing the medicated cream/lotion/gel on the skin of the forearm!

  4. Also, what about inhalers and nebulizers?

  5. sublingual-as in dissolves under the tongue, it goes in your mouth technically but you arent allowed to swallow it.


Please share your thoughts! It makes me feel like I have friends.
