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 have your partner, a family member or a friend 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.
