Do I give myself my Wegovy® (Semaglutide) injection?
Yes - you do give yourself the Wegovy injection! Wegovy® comes in an easy-to-administer pen that is preset with the dose you’re taking and a hidden needle. After cleaning the injection site, you’ll push the pen firmly into the skin on your abdomen, upper arms, or upper legs and wait for the yellow bar on the pen to stop moving. This will indicate to you that the injection is complete. You can watch a great video on how to do the injection here. Your healthcare provider can offer assistance as well if you still have questions.
