    HI I HAVE BEEN HAVING ISSUES WITH DVTS & P.E SINCE 2007. IT SUCKS !!
    I WAS ON THE 10 YEAR IUD UNTIL SEPT. OF THIS YEAR WHEN ME AND MY HUSBAND DECIDED WE WANTED TO TRY TO HAVE A LIL ONE. WHEN I TALKED TO MY OB DR BEFORE SHE REMOVED IT SHE TOLD ME IT WASNT A GOOD IDEA DUE TO THE RISKS OF CLOTS. I SINCE THEN HAVE REMOVED IT AND AWAITING TO GET PREGNANT. I HAVE BEEN TAKING THE LOVENOX SHOTS SINCE THEN ( ABOUT 2 MONTH) TO PREVENT ANY CLOTS FROM FORMING, BUT I STILL HAVENT COME OUT PREGNANT. IVE NEVER TAKEN HEPARIN BUT I WAS TOLD WHEN I DO COME OUT PREGNANT I WOULD HAVE TO EVENTUALLY SWITCH TOWARDS THE END OF MY PREGNANCY SINCE I HAVE TO HAVE A CESARIAN. LOVENOX YEAH GIVES A STINGING SENSATION AND BRUISING BUT IS A HELL OF A LOT OF MONEY. GOOD THING I DONT PAY FOR IT. I HAVE MISSED MY PERIOD FOR ALMOST 3 WEEKS ALREADY BUT EVERY PREGNANCY TEST I HAVE TAKEN IS NEGATIVE. JUST THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE MY STORY WITH YALL , AND BEST LUCK TO EVERYONE ON HERE.

    I feel for you!! I have gone thru rounds of Lovenox trying to get pregnant and keep one. I have read every trick out there to try to make the shot more comfortable and not bruise, but it still seems it's so hit or miss not matter what I do! How are you doing with your shots? Have you found any tricks that work? Hope your journey is going well, it's hard to stay strong! Take care!

    HI I used lovenox during my pregnancy. I found the injection in the belly hurts less than in the thigh. I mostly did not use ice prior to the injection, it made me more nervous and it really did not make it much better, I thought (But every now and then I'd try it). I found under the belly button to the left or right alternating sides daily helped to relieve the soreness.
    Good luck and best wishes!!!
