Welcome to the forum.

Minimal pain and for some guys no pain. It's generally not an issue. Did or is your doctor going to do a demonstration injection in his office so you know how to inject properly?

Don't be nervous - it's pretty easy.
I'd recommend a 30g, 1/2" 1mL syringe. I've never used a self-injector - just a regular syringe.
Be sure to: 1. wash your hands FIRST. 2. clean the area of injection well with alcohol - let the alcohol dry. 3. clean the top of the bottle (rubber area) with alcohol. 4. Turn the bottle upside down and put the needle in the bottle through the rubber. (A 30g needle is very thin so be careful to not bend the needle when putting it through the rubber on the bottle!). Draw back the appropriate amount. Draw a bit more so when you remove the needle, you can hold it upright and expel some liquid out of the needle (to make sure there's no air in the syringe). 5. Hold your penis tight against your thigh - identify the area of injection away from a vein - on the side - inject quickly. Depress the plunger slowly to inject the tri-mix. 6. Remove the needle and immediately apply pressure to the injection site. Hold that for 1 to 2 minutes. 7. Discard the needle in an approved puncture proof discard bin (available for purchase at any pharmacy - keep the box - when the bin is full, you can mail it in for disposal.
After injection, you should feel the effects within 10-20 minutes.

There should be lots of online videos that show you how to do it (try youtube.com).
As fas as pain goes, it's REALLY minimal. The key is to inject quickly (not slowly). Really, it barely hurts at all.
Be sure you keep pressure on the puncture site (with a gauze) for a couple of minutes after the injection.

Start with the smallest dose (5 units?) to see what happens. You can always increase it a bit the next time.
A little goes a long way - trust me.
I like it when it makes me engorged, but not fully hard. In that state, a bit of stimulation does get it fully hard and ready to go, but doesn't make things uncomfortable.
Good luck.
