Video Instruction for Subcutaneous Injections

Subcutaneous or Sub-Q injection are given just under the skin. After the injection, the drug moves into small blood vessels and the bloodstream. This video demonstrates how to properly administer a subcutaneous injection for your IVF cycle.

There are two basic types of injections that you’ll be administering during your IVF cycle. The first is the subcutaneous injection, which is given under the skin with a short needle – usually ½”. Most stimulation medications including Lupron, Gonal-F, Follistim, and Ganirelix are administered subcutaneously. Please see our video instructions for administering subcutaneous injections below. Nurse Linda demonstrates each type of injection in clear and concise segments for your convenience.
