    What are your tips? Cause this crap burns.I finally got my script and the pharmacist taught me how but I want to reduce pain swelling and bruising so what are ways you found to help?

    Hugs mama! I was on lovenox from 3-36 weeks and heparin 2x day from 36-38.

    I got used to it after a few weeks, I never did anything special but every few weeks I'd get a horrible huge bruise that would take several weeks to fade away, I'm talking the size of a softball or larger!

    It's not fun or easy but hang in there. With our losses prior, I was never on blood thinners and I believe Eloise is here 100% because of them.

    My mom was on it and what helped her from the brusing and subdural hemotomas was rubbing the injection area for 5 mins and applying Ice for 5mins after the shot. Try rubbing for 5 first then the Ice (Ice pack) for 5.
