    Did my 6th injection yesterday if trulicity.

    It’s the second time in that spot but that place hasn’t been used since 3rd injection so 4 weeks ago.

    anyway when I looked last night there was a large bruise. Today still there and darker. Not painful in the slightest.

    have I done something wrong or is this normal?

    Just bad luck. You hit a blood vessel. I bet it itched immediately after the injection.

    Thanks. It’s the first time since started so I’m assuming it was a one off
