Injections

I am on victoza, it is a pre measured injection. I change needles every time, but I always end up bruising. Is this normal, or am I doing something wrong?
There are 2 big bruises on each side of my stomach because i was told to switch sides each time...Any help would be appreciated.

I am on Byetta and about once every 50 times I will bruse in my stomach but if I use my upper arm it's about one in every 5 to 10 times. Could you be a little low on vitamin C ?

I went through IVF treatment (to donate eggs to my sister) and had to do daily injections in the stomach. I found I did get little bruises show up after a couple of days but they were not sore to the touch like regular bruises.

Although I once knocked the syringe when the needle was in the skin and although it didn't really hurt at the time, ended up with the worse bruise ever! So definitely try and keep the needle dead straight and avoid any wobble.
