    Yeah I do them all in my stomach but I think you can do them in your thigh as well...but I'm not brave enough! I have much more spare fat on my stomach!! They can bruise pretty bad occasionally though! Dr M put me on them because my blood is slightly thicker than normal and I also have an NK cell imbalance I think......its all pretty confusing what drugs I am taking for what, but it worked so I am rolling with it!!

    thanks ladies! Just had my phone consult and Dr M has said I can do clexane from ovulation on alternate days, does that sound about right? YAY here is hoping this is it!

    Hi nattie,

    The syringes come ready to go, take cap off and the needle itself is bevelled so is best to have the long side on the bottom. Pinch up some chubs and hold onto it until you've injected the whole syringe. DH did mine and the needle was either relatively straight/slightly angled down. Recap and dispose into a sharps container (available from chemist if you are not supplied with one).

    I would recommend alternating sides and not too close to belly button. I only had one bruise from when we first started. We did mine just before bed at night - that way I figured when I was handling knives at dinner time there was less of a chance of me bleeding more!

    Nattie I've been having clexane every day since I was 5 weeks pregnant - I was on aspirin since after transfer (and pred from the beginning of the cycle).

    My Ob was going to allow me to drop down to every other day injections at around 28 weeks, but since bub was on the small side she thought it was better to keep it up daily. But if you're doing it from O then I don't think there should be an issue with you injecting on alternate days.

    I hope it works for you!

    Sorry MGC about your cycle so tough so hope you are doing ok

    Frances - keep the faith. On this last cycle we only got 6 fertilized and then all but 2 arrested - and one took and gave us our BFP. Fingers crossed!

    On the joys of clexane, you don't lose anything by starting before OPU but just don't inject on day of OPU. I was injecting in my belly but ran out of room as i bruise heavily and get hematomas and now belly has popped I get paranoid I'll hit uterus. Have moved onto tops of thighs. Does anyone do them sides of thighs or the flank?

Sorry your FS bailed on the Intralipids, seems pretty heartless given these people know the pain and frustration of this journey - to say yes ill do it and then backtrack... Not sure if I'd be able to keep working with them after that. Hopefully the other FS will take you on and do them for you. Were they successful last time with their other patient?

    Kiwi76: I take my met at night because that's what my endo told me to do lol! I was wondering of the benefits of taking it in the morning given all eating etc happens in the daytime - I have insulin resistance, no diagnosis of PCOS but high blood sugars that are teetering on diabetes. It still messes with my stomach sporadically. Great news on getting this far with intralipids/IVIG, have you ever got this far along before? I'll cross everything for you!

    Nattie84: I've been on Clexane before but Dr M has a different protocol for me that previous FS: 20mg/day from ovulation (we're trying naturally) and then 60mg/day from positive preg test. We'll see how it goes.

    Posting this from my phone so if it's a mess, so sorry!
    hi Seaside - never gotten BFP last 4 cycles so who knows what has made difference. I know last times we implanted I got weird pains and wondered whether it was my body attacking the embryos. I tried to PM you as our med history sounds very similar and I'm worried about miscarrying as heard APAs flare up late first trimester and second. But PM wouldn't go through. Just wondered whether you could feel something was up and what to watch out for?

    Hi ladies, absolutely knackered so I'll be quick. Sorry for no personals.

    Emma on the Facebook page suggested emla cream for use with clexane. You put it on 1hr before injection and it numbs the site. Because apparently it hurst like a b*#%h!

    I do my clexane in my thigh. Does not seem to hurt to much as yet. So far the bruises have stayed away. I just wiggle my toes and grab some flab and jab it in.

    when I've had them in hospital they hurt more from the nurses.

    Happy Friday everyone x

    Oh why is this so bloody hard. Only day 2 of second clomid cycle. Got good news yesterday that we have no major DNA matches that would be preventing pregnancy and doctor has agreed to let me try clexane injections on alternate days after ovulation, yay needles (NOT).

    Had a meltdown at the gym this morning. My husband says this is why he is wary about doing IVF again because he hates seeing me like this. I just hate what all these drugs and emotions do to me. I had someone say to me the other day that I need to suck it up and deal and to stop distancing myself from people who have kids… Whatever I really don’t distance myself but during treatment is it too much to ask? Last time I tried to suck it up and went to a friend’s kids first birthday I ended up leaving in tears cause it was too much to handle seeing everyone pregnant. I just feel like no one understands or wants to understand and they think oh well lots of people go through it so suck it up. I want to punch those people in the face.

    I just want my life back again and feel like when we aren’t doing treatment I am happy and content and dealing with everything but as soon as we start treatment again I fall apart. I think I will definitely be returning to the psychologist.
