Some fertility patients need to receive medications via injection, which are most often done in their home, not in the doctor’s office. Some people find this to be a difficult part of their treatment.

Injections can be subcutaneous (into the fat under the skin) or intramuscular (into the muscle). You can give them to yourself or a partner or person from your support system can do it.

Your Main Line Fertility Care Team will review everything you need to know about your medications and procedures during your injection training appointment.
