In brief: Common
As a general rule, place your right hand on your right thigh near the groin with your thumb and finger pointing towards your knee.
Place your left hand on your knee pointing towards your right hand. Your fingers and thumbs then create an oval of the area on the thigh that is safe for an intramuscular injection. Use a heating pad over the sore area.
