Are you laying on your sites a lot? Cause I know when I lay, bump, or sleep on my sites, they tend to bleed a lot.

Do you stretch your skin on insertion? Seems like it might hurt, but it actually hurts less and can help prevent bleeding.

Is the cannula too big? I had to use a different size once and it bled but when I went to a smaller size it worked better for me
