My doctor thinks she's going to start me on 40mg twice a day instead of once a day...She said the peri wrote in his notes that I need to be on it twice a day...I had to go get a blood draw just to make sure my blood looked good...I should hear back from her monday about that....I hated my one shot a day, but now I get to do 2! Who else takes lovenox twice a day?

I only take it once a day but I'll be switching to heparin soon and it'll be twice a day. I'm not looking forward to that.

I take mine twice a day. It blows, but it is not that big of a deal. The only thing I really hate about it is the constant running out of places on my belly that are not bruised or knotty.

Yes that's what i'm worried about...Just doing it once a day makes it hard to find spots, i'm not sure what i'll do twice a day...I might have to move more to the sides...The only spots on my stomach that don't hurt are right in the front, the more I move up or down or more to the sides it hurts more Oh well, I think i'll survive.

Please don't take offense, but you guys must be skinny. I think this one one of the only times I am grateful for being larger (though I am working on not being that way). I have no problems with running out of spots.

Also, if you push the blood thinner ( Lovenox or heparin) slowly, so it is not burning, it will not bruise as bad and sometimes not at all. And be sure not to rub that spot after for awhile. My OB told me to rub the area before, clean it, stick it push it in and then don't put pressure or rub that area if you can help it.

lol i'm not skinny...I ice my spot first, and I inject really slowly but I still bruise over half the time....I also don't rub it or anything after....also my bruises take so long to go away, that's why it's hard to find spots...It takes over a week for one of my big bruises to to away and sometimes they are as big as a golf ball if not bigger...I don't like to inject into a bruise or right next to it.
