People giving themselves a thigh injection of a biologic.

My Video Demonstration of Self-Injecting a Biologic

Last updated: April 2022

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to do a self-injection? Whether you are trying a biologic for the first time or switching from an infusion to a self-injection, it might seem intimidating. In this video, I’m injecting Cimzia using a prefilled syringe. This medication can be injected into your upper thighs or your stomach. Tip: make a note in your calendar about which spot you used, as it's important to alternate injection sites.

I hope this video serves as a useful tool and helps alleviate fears you might have about self-injection. While I can’t give medical advice, feel free to comment with any questions you might have about my experiences with self-injections.
