Heparin users.... — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

Heparin users....

does it hurt like hell for you too? I've been on 2x day Lovenox for the entire pregnancy, but they recently switched me to Heparin. Do you have any secrets to make it hurt less? I've tried ice and lidocaine gel. The only thing that helps are lidocaine injections (they had an anesthesiologist do this for me b/c I was so upset). Thanks!

Re: Heparin users....

  • I didn't have too much trouble with them, but maybe that's because I have a lot of "padding." :) I will say though, I bruised way less with Lovenox. I do inject very, very slowly, and that seems to help a bit.

    Mine weren't that bad...I have a bunch left over if you need it.

    I wonder if I'm just super sensitive :( I cried my eyes out the first time they gave it to me. I haven't had to buy it yet (was given it in the hospital) and they have put me back on Lovenox until I can see a hematologist here at Stanford. What dose do you have? I was getting 7500 2x a day. Maybe I will buy it off of you :-)

    How's the new job? I hope you are doing well.

    Insurance might pay for it...mine did but I know others who it hasn't so please let me know if you need it.  You don't have to pay me.  I was doing 5000 2x a day.  I have at least 30 10,000 bottles.

    New job is going well - I am working 50+ hours a week so it keeps me busy and my mind off things and is helping money wise.  Thanks for asking.  :)

    Let me know if you need anything - make sure those Stanford doctors take good care of you!
