I am having to do Lovenox shots w/ this pregnancy due to a clotting disorder. Whenever I give myself the shot and activate the safety mechanism after the shot, some liquid squirts out. Is this normal or has anyone else experienced this?? I have had two previous miscarriages so I am really paranoid that I am not getting all of the medication during the injection! Any comments would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

This is normal. It is also normal for a small amount of Lovenox to ooze out of the injection site. To help get as much of the medicine as you can, Make sure that if there is an air bubble that you keep it in there. Nurses have a tendency to want to remove them/tap them out but for Lovenox that bubble is useful because it will stay by the plunger and help push the medicine out. Not all of the injections will have the bubble though and when that is the case a little will squirt out. I always make sure to point it down into the sink and rinse well when I am finished.
