Living with celiac, it is common to have low b-12! I have to give myself weekly injections, so I don't get sick! Here is how I do it! (I am not a doctor and you should always ask how they prefer it done. I was listening to MY doctor. Also, I do NOT know where to buy B12 or the supplies, I got all of mine from a prescription.
More tips that I have learned from:
-Use alcohol wipe in circular motions.
-Wipe the vile lid with the wipe to clean it.
-Don't recap the needle.

Wow, she has her volumes Waaaaaaaaay off. If you use this as a guide, she is possibly using a 1 ml vial to draw from (one time use most likely), and the shots should be 100 MICROGRAMS (0.1 mL) to 1000 MICROGRAMS (1 mL--at the very high end which I believe she is doing on a weekly or monthly basis) and looks like a an insulin syringe which is based on units with a total volume of 1 mL. Wow.
Peace and blessings.
I get my b-12 vials and syringes from Mexico....for 6 of each I pay $30. And I get injected every 3 days I pay $20 for each injection $120 total. Thanks to this video I am going to attempt to do this myself. At the moment I am taking sublingual B12 until someone goes to Mexico and get me me a 6 months supply. Thanks again for a most helpful information.
I notice you plunge the needle right in? I was hoping to only need to put it in just past where the opening hole is to ensure fluid enters the skin - that was the way I was shown by my vet when having to inject my animals in the past, but not sure if for people this differs....I'm being a wuss about self injecting so hoping going in shallower is also fine? great video, thanks.
Just saw your message. My experience is that it hurts no more going in deeper. If I go too shallow it actually hurts more and I can see the b12 sitting under the skin and see and feel the mound where it is which is probably why it hurts
I can’t get past the part of sticking in the needle. I don’t know how to get over that. Also, my B12 comes with the needle and it’s way larger than your needle. Can I use a smaller needle or is the product thicker with some manufacturers so a larger needle is required?
I know this is from 2 years ago but THANK YOU sooo much for this! I was kinda nervous and nauseated as I prepared (aaand accidentally squirted it on the bathroom sink, lol) but I followed your directions and it was so easy! It didn’t even hurt! Thank you again for making it easy and giving me the confidence I needed to do it. 💖
Thank you for making this video. I give myself a different shot but it's a bit different than the B12. This was my first time doing my B12 and following your instructions made it super easy. Thank you again. I go between my thighs and my stomach since I will now be taking two different shots.
Thank you Hailey!! On B12 for 14 years and I have finally managed to do it myself, which will THRILL my husband cause he hates giving them to me thinking he’s hurting me. Recently got over my phobia of needles and thought now’s as good a time as any and I did it thanks to your video 😍🙏🏼👍🏼
Just found out that my vitamin b12 is extremely low once again. I have been on iron for anemia, but never b12 for that deficiency. I do daily injections for something different. Please tell me the pros and cons of vitamin b12 supplement and vitamin b12 injections. Going to talk to my Doctor next week about b12, but want to be prepared. I have been having symptoms of b12 deficiency for quite a long time.
Thanks so much for this! I gave my 2nd B12 injection tonight and seriously almost passed out—had to lay down afterwards. Pure nerves from not knowing if I was doing it right. I feel much better about t it. Thank you!!
i searched this on youtube... gotta give them to my son for a bit and see if that improves as per doctors orders... i wasnt sure if belly was ok. ive given many shots for insulin but my first b12s :) thanks for posting. looks pretty much the same.
Joell Schenkel you don't really have to aspirate when your injecting in the stomach area. The area where you need to aspirate is when you're doing it on the shoulder. And if it's IM/intramuscular. What she did was a subcut.
MommaHailey1 if you would inject it into an blood vessel it can cause many problems. That's why it is very important to aspirate. It is not that u really need to do it, but it would be a smart thing to do. :)
My mom was prescribed b12 injections and she's too afraid to do it herself, so I was volunteered to do it for her. I was nervous about doing it but this video made it seem easy. I'm still worried I might stab her in the muscle. How do you know if you're going too deep?
+dancingdays69 I'm in nursing school right now (graduating in May) ... we pretty much NEVER aspirate. The practice of aspirating is no longer. It's rare that aspiration for an injection is necessary. I've given subcutaneous and IM shots and have never aspirated before.
daisy3690 you aspirated. Once the needle is in the fat or muscle, pull back on the plunger. If you pull back and blood enters the syringe, you are in a blood vessel and need to find another spot. If you pull back and you see an air bubble, or you feel it's very difficult, then you are good to inject.
MommaHailey1 yes you can but subcutaneously would be better in fatty parts of belly big part of shoulder arm thigh take care with thigh but it just skin injection intro muscle not tummy.
you lucky to get it,I NHS and vit b12 hot potato the boundary changed as to getting it.I low vit b12 as opposed to PA.I know I need it but doctor just not allowed to give it unless half dead and I feel it.
if any Brits reading this and know how get it online I be grateful as I not getting any luck
There is a multi-dose access spike - allows you to pull out various doses - without accessing more than once, minimizing the number of time you plunge the needle into the vial. I saw it at my doctor's office on a visit.
MommaHailey1 New subscriber thank you for being so quick if you don't mind me asking do you pay a big amount for it every month or is it a once a week thing because I have insurance do you think they'll cover it
lindseys lifeNstyle I'm not depressed, but started having panic attacks everyday for months and anxiety. I couldn't think of anything mentally that was causing it, I felt like I am in a really good place mentally. Turned out that I am verrrrry low in vitamin B12 and have to get weekly shots. Vitamin B12 is extremely important for the nervous system. A lack of B12 can cause depression, anxiety, fatigue, numbness and tingling etc. They wanted to just put me on anti anxiety meds but I asked them to check all my vitamin levels etc. Then it came back with very low vitamin B12. Imagine how many people are on antidepressants or anxiety medication and maybe their vitamin B12 is just low
