    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?

    Subq vs IM impact on Hematocrit

    I just would like to hear from people that switched from IM to subq (keeping dose and frequency the same) if it had any impact on hematocrit. I have been thinking about injecting my nandrolone subq (instead of IM) and keep testosterone IM (i feel better and also my estradiol gets too low on...

    Best injection technique for low dose daily SubQ?

    I switched this year from E3.5 injections to low dose daily injections thanks to @Cataceous. I'm currently injecting 8mg each morning of Propionate-only after trying a blend of Cypionate and Prop. Like many on here, I started with harpoon needles from my general physician and than graduated...

    Going to daily subq need help converting dosage

    I’m on 200mg test cyp every other day and just recently got some 28 g 100 u syringes in and want to do daily subq injections. How much daily would I have to inject? I’m not sure what line in the syringe to fill it to. Thanks for the help

    Test Prop SubQ bumps

    Hi. I use Test Prop for my TRT SubQ and on occasion I'll get one of those hard bumps at the injection site on my abdomen. I massage it in after I inject, but this still happens on occasion. So basically I had two questions.... 1. Any way to limit this further? Is it a Test Prop thing or...

    First sub-q pin this morning - advice please

    I've been on gel for 7 months and progressed to subq this morning. Using Test-Enanthate and will pin EOD 0.25ml for a total of 1ml/200mg test per week. Yes 200mg is a lot to some but need to see if it will drive my SHBG down. So, using a 29g insulin needle, I battled to pull the esther into...

    Shallow IM to SubQ Switch - It is On!

    So, I had been doing shallow IM (25g x 5/8") into the upper arm for the last year or so. I cannot do this injection myself, for whatever, the wife had been doing it. I recently switched - using the same 25g x 5/8" needle to subq in the glute. When doing, I, or the wife, slightly...

    Nelson is right, the shoulder in the best injection site...

    When I first started TRT, I was a noob and went for the leg injections but that did not last long because of the soreness. Then I read all the rage about subQ and started injecting into the fat around my stomach area. What I found was that my free test dropped and my estradiol got to high...

    SubQ - Really that much better?

    Hi all, I read some articles that references Dr Crisler regarding Subq injections. From what I read, seemes like Dr Crisler suggests SubQ is 20% more effective than IM as far as absorption and may lower estrogen conversion. Any personal experiences in relation to those benefits?

    Subq injection volume.

    Hi everyone, My first order from Empower is coming tomorrow and I had a quick question. I've been reading that you dont want more than .5cc of oil under the skin subq and I'm wanting to do subq injections with a 1cc syringe and either 27 or 30g needles. My biweekly dose is .35cc but if I...

    Injection/application frequency vs AR receptors

    I remember someone posting on a different forum (can’t find the link now) of increased E2 levels on daily dosing vs. breaking up the same dose into 2-3x/week with T Enanthate. Aromatase activity seems to be higher when the peak and trough in T is eliminated from high-frequency dosing. I also see...

    Shallow IM issues, please advise

    I always inject with a 25G 5/8” needle into my outer thigh every E3.5D. After realizing I’m out of needles on Thursday evening I finally decided to jump on the bandwagon and purchase 29G 1/2” insulin needles from the local Walmart and try shallow IM or I guess subQ injections. I still injected...

    Subq Injections Liver Enzymes

    Just curious if any of you have gotten elevated ALT levels from TRT. I've been told high protein diets and hard weight training can cause it as well. I'm trying to figure out a cause. Mine came back as normal AST but ALT was 65 and normal is 45 I believe in the test I took. Everything...

    Lumps with subQ in injections

    Hey guys, I keep getting a hard lump after I do my subQ injection into my belly. I've been using a 27ga 1/2" needle. What am I doing wrong? I've been training a lot and my body fat has been dropping drastically, I'm probably around 8% body fat now. Should I start injecting somewhere else...
