    I hate the clexane injections! I started taking them on Tuesday. I agree that the worst part is how much pressure you have to use to get it in! I think orgalutran was similar. The first clexane I did I got an awful bruise - about the size of a 50c piece and totally black and purple! I think I tensed up when I was having a hard time getting the needle in. Since then I've been icing my stomach first and that has helped a lot, only small marks now. It still sucks though!

    I started them on Tuesday too!

    I tried injecting with the pointy bit of the needle down and that seemed to go in nicer! The clexane really stung today, so I might try rolling it in my hands to warm it up a bit. I took one in summer and it had been stored in my room which was a little warm - the clexane didn't sting! Not sure if that will make a difference but it's worth a try.

    I've been on Clexane through 2 pregnancies and 6 weeks after bubs were born. It sucks but worth it! I've taken it several times over the years for operations and long haul flights as well as I have a clotting condition. I must be lucky because I hardly ever bruise. I basically insert the needle quickly and then push the liquid in slowly. I hate the pushing in the most! It only stings about once a fortnight but I still get a little nervous doing it.

    Sometimes you just hit a little blood vessel and it will bruise. Can't be helped. Sometimes the bruise can be the size of your palm

    Ahh that makes sense, I think that's what I must have done. Oh well, luckily it's not summer and I don't want to wear a bikini!

    Hey ladies, I've been using clexane injections once a day for the past two weeks. The second injection I had a bleed and passed a clot at 5 weeks 3 days but it stopped and I've been okay but I did have spotting but that seems to have done since today.

    I don't find them that bad, it could be much worse and so far I've only left one bruise which is good. Not sure how long I'll be on them for yet.
