Clexane injections

Hi there,
I'm just going through my icsi cycle and this time will be using clexane injections after ec. I hear they are not very nice and I've not done them before.

Can anyone give me any advice on these? Are they as bad as they sound? Do they go in the belly? And any tips?

I've had gestone before, are they like that at all?

Thanks, Pam x

Hi

they sting a bit, but it really isn't anything - over in a jiffy.

Like Jenny said they do sting a bit, just try and pinch as much skin as possible while doing it and it doesn't hurt as much :)

Good luck x

I tend to do mine in the "love handles" (lol) as its the fattiest part and doesnt hurt as much plus whatever u do do not rub the area after when its stinging as u will be left with a rather nasty bruise. X

Sorry to scare you with what I wrote in another thread.....

I've not had them personally but as I said i give then to my patients (elderly) at work. They mainly say they sting abit....the needle isn't huge and its a sub-cutaneous injection, not intramuscular like i think the gestone ones are...

Please dont worry about them Xxx

i was told. to angle the needle at 45 degrees. And to gently stretch the skin not pinch. but stretching didnt feel comfortable. i also rub an ice cube over the area im going to inject. put the needle in slowly and repeat the mantra "it doesnt sting" as you slooowly push the plunger. after the liquid has gone in, count 10 seconds and slowly take the needle out. i was told to ice the area for up to 10 mins afterwards, but i only did it for 10 seconds. today was my 2nd injection and unfortunately, unknowlingly went into a blood vessel. so i have bruised today. i didnt yesterday. i dont know if the mantra worked, but it didnt sting half as much today as it did yesterday.

good luck miss anderson

I don't think they hurt as much as gestone.
I always pushed down hard for a few seconds on the area of my tummy where I'd injected and that stopped any bruises and reduced the stinging.

I took clexane this cycle and now 25 weeks pregnant not sure if that's what did the trick this time round. I find pinching a good pinch of skin helps they're not painful but can bruise a bit you can do any where on the tummy under the belly button or the tops of your legs anywhere you can grab some fat.

I'm still on the clexane and feel like I'm running out of places to inject anyone taken it during pregnancy with any tips gratefully received?

Awwww thanks for all of the advice ladies, it has all been taken on board. Big bits of skin, go in slowly, tell myself it doesn't hurt (lol) and don't rub or scratch it afterwards thumbup

I don't have to do them yet. I've been told it will be after my EC which at the moment is likely to be next Weds. So I'm guessing next Thurs is when I will start. I'll keep you all posted and let you know how it goes.

Don't worry bumble bee it wasn't you. I looked at them yesterday and thought I don't like the look of those. Then I googled a bit which didn't help. then I came on here and the thread was talking about them, lol.

I'm doing all my own injections this time (first time for me to do this as i am a massive wimp) and am quite proud that I have managed it. The clexane ones will not be the ones that break my record! :laugh:

thanks again ladies, i'll let you know next week how i get on. xx

1st day of clexane........ Here is how it went ........

Ouch!!!! But that was mainly due to me :-(

I did it myself which is another achievement for me :-) however I did jab myself twice as I couldn't get it in. I then cried and told DH I'm not doing them. Lol. He offered and I told him no, I'm just not having them at all!! Finally I managed it on the 3rd go and it wasn't that bad.

I write this and sound like a crazy lady. I promise I'm not although Sometimes I think I really do néed help!!!! What a nutter. Lol. I think it's all the drugs and my emotions are running high. I'm still sore from EC too. Good news tho we have 11 fertilised embies. Fingers crossed they make it to Monday as that wil be day 5. Then I need them to stick in strong for me. It's the sticking that seems to be my problem.

Anyhow, all the tablets I took today went well. No hysterics :chortle:

Good luck on your journey to anyone reading this babydust

Great result from ec hun your hard work is done now I always felt drained after ec and et so don't be hard on yourself.

I think the clexane helped me this time round it can sting a bit but it's finding the patch that doesn't hurt so much I find the sides of my tummy bid best where I can pinch a load of fatty skin (not that I'm fat lol) you'll be fine once you get used to the needles x

Good luck for Monday x

I have a clexane question .... Again!! Sorry.

When you inject it do you leave it in your belly until the safety clicks and then take it out? I have been injecting it and pushing it down until I think it's done. Then I pull the needle out and push the plunger a bit more. The safety then flicks out but a bit if the liquid comes out too ?o( I'm not sure if I am doing right and getting all the liquid? I'm a bit scared to click until the safety pops out whist the needle is still in me. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks ladies xx

If u do it gently to the end making sure all the liquid is out u can gently pull it out and then push the end for the safety bit to come out. U will soon get the hang of it x

The safety bit is just plastic.. When it pops out it will automatically cause the needle to withdraw from you
