I believe I have read that you have to be careful when injecting into the glutes to not hit your sciatic nerve. I assume that is if you are using a 1" needle. Is this something we need to worry about using a .5" needle?
It did take time for me to get comfortable injecting in the VG. I just feel my hip bone and move down from there. After pinning myself there a few times it got a lot easier. It's now my favorite place to inject, I will even inject 500iu of HCG in my ventorgluteal
I attempted my very first injection in the VG .25cc after reading about it here. It did not work out so well for me.
After removing the syringe I got a throbing ache in my hip socket and the pain slowing traveled down my leg bone and stopped at the ankle. The dull ache lasted for 3 days. I have since been injecting around my navel sub-Q 220.127.116.11 positions with zero pain no blood and no lumps.
I also have my HCG in the syringe as well. I load it first to flush the T out of the needle so there is no waste.
