How to administer heparin injections

Print Friendly

If you have recurrent pregnancy loses heparin injections are prescribed. Heparins are basically blood thinners.
I was on enoxaparin (enoxarin) once a day. They are prefilled syringes and are quite expensive too.

It can be taken in the legs stomach or love handles.
I injected it daily on my thighs. I used my inner thighs. It needs to be injected in the fat.
Thanks to god that I have a lot of fat in my body.

Site on a chair and select a portion of the inner thigh that is loose and hanging.
Just pinch it and poke the injection straight. Then press the injection. You can use surgical spirit before injecting, but I used to inject directly. Most of the time there was no blood discharge.

If a few drops of blood oozes out, wipe it and apply some dettol or antiseptic solution.
Tips: hold the injection straight and poke right in, first the needle then you inject. The needle has to be perpendicular to the surface.

Dont freak out this is temporary.
