I’ll be getting my first-ever CGM next week, but I’m a little concerned about where to put the sensor. I do not want it to show, so I don’t like the arm. I’ve never given shots in my stomach before, and I’m very uncomfortable with putting it on my stomach. (I don’t have a pump.)
I’m thinking of either my thigh or butt/hip. My wardrobe is a lot of pencil skirts/dresses, and pants that tend to be tighter around the hip/upper thigh area, though, so I wonder how those locations would impact my clothing. I was thinking of maybe putting some type of a garter over the sensor to try to smooth it out? Most of my research on garters has discussed only pumps, though, and not the CGM sensors, so I’m not sure if there are other products or other things I can do so I can keep wearing the clothes I like wearing, but also not be uncomfortable wearing the sensor.
Finally, does the sensor impact your sexual activity? That is my one worry about having it on my thigh/butt/hip.
Thanks so much; I’m hoping I might get a few ideas from some of you.
