I need to start giving myself the lovenox injections , from now until 6 weeks after birth, i was just wondering if anyone has been taking it and if there are any side effects that you feel?

I'm almost 32 weeks and have been on them since 8 weeks. No side effects and they really don't hurt much to do. They sting a tiny bit, but it kind of depends on where you put it that day. I do them in the lovehandle area and rarely have any pain, but a bit of bruising.

I have never heard of lovenox. What is it for? Thanks for the information, i am just curious.

I'm 14 weeks and have been on it since about 6 weeks I think. Bruising is my only side effect. make sure to ice before and after for 5 minutes. Good luck! Trynagain - Lovenox is a blood thinner to help prevent clotting.

Well I've now started it, the bruising is there, so I'll try the ice, until now i'd just been using an alcohol rub before the injection and it stings for about 10 minues after.
