    Sub Q injection question

    I inject both T and HCG Sub-Q. My question is, as long as it’s going into subcutaneous tissue does it really matter where it goes? Stomach fat injections always hurt and leave welts and sometimes bruises.. not much of it there maybe, so always do a SubQ glute injection. Will that make a difference?

    Injecting in right quad leaves swelling, left not

    Has anyone had a similar experience? The right one is always sore for days, the left one rarely is. More nerves/less blood flow on one side?

    I know aspirating isn’t necessary but I’m curious why when I aspirate air bubbles stay in the syringe. Isn’t it in a vacuum state so where is the air coming from?

    Wasted test

    I started my treatment about 4 weeks ago, I have noticed that after my test injection there is about .3ml left after. Should I adjust my dose for this or not worry about it. Seems like a pretty big waste after it’s all added up.
