injection bruising

on second ivf/icsi. last time i had no bruising at all! did my second buserilin injection this morning and quite a bit of blood came out. now have massive bruise up to my naval. just been reading through previous posts to set mind at rest and read that you shouldn't inject within 2 inches of naval. i've never been told that, is that true? i was just told it had to be below naval line. thought i was been so much calmer this time around but here i am - jittery!

Hi elpi, I was told not to inject too close to the naval and to do alternate sides each time. I wouldn't worry about it too much thou, just keep the needle further away next time. I'm sure they wouldn't let us do all these injections at home if there was any risk of us doin it wrong.

Hope this helps xx

Hi Elpi,

I was told a really useful tip by a nurse more so with my clexane jabs - not to rub after injecting as it causes bruising. When I was doing my stimms jabs it was generally ok and like advised, alternate sides each day was a good tip. The needles are quite fine so reasonably easy to do but try not to run afterwards. You should avoid the naval area and go for the fleshy bit down a bit either side.

I'm sure it's all fine and the bruises do fade.

Lots of luck.

Hi elpi and welcome to :FZ:

The girls have already given you some good advice. The best thing is to alternate sides, get a fold of skin and gently inset the needle and a 45 degree angle. Bruising happens with jabs, it's perfectly normal. We are not nurses after all!
Good luck!

Yes, stay away from the belly button! I had sooooo many bruises - and blood on several occasions too. I used to ice the area fow a few minutes beforehand also, that seemed to help with the sting. Just think - it'll be worth it in the long run.

I used to numb area with ice. It helps with bruising. I was also told to inject upper tight

Hi hun, i also took med's out of fridge 10 mins before we injected it, it doesnt sting as much afterwards.
Dont worry about the bruises, i have loads even though the injections dont hurt when we do them, its a pain having a stomach looking like a bad apple :snigger: but it's worth it.
Hope they get better for you
