Hey, there guys!
I did my first injection today (Test E) which was really hard because I’m TERRIFIED of anything to do with needles and blood etc, but my deep desire and passion for bodybuilding obviously made me do it.
I injected it into VG and was surprised it didn’t really hurt or feel that much. “Puncturing” your skin and flesh really wasn’t that bad or hard after all. What I found the most troublesome was aspirate since it was hard to hold the syringe, to begin with, let alone try to suck in air in it before injecting. Any advice?
Point is. I’m worried I might have injected in a slight angle and maybe it didn’t even hit the muscle. I’m low-medium in fat and used a 23g 1” needle. What do you think? Honestly, I was like passing out so I just wanted to do it as quickly as possible so I could lie down and recuperate LOL. So I don’t even remember what it all felt like.
And is your whole leg supposed to feel a bit weird afterward?
Thanks :)

I use 23g to aspirate, then switch to 1.5" 25g to inject into the glutes.
Don't bother with aspiration after injecting. Also, inject at 90 degrees to the skin. Small air bubbles don't matter if you inject them.

aspirate means to pull air into the syringe after you're in the muscle to make sure you not in a vein!!?? I am not sure what your definition of aspirate is.

Hey brother. I just to clarify something
Aspirate with 23g, means drawing needle sorry. And yes, aspirate also after injecting to see if you hit a vein, is outdated. You wont aspirate air, but blood.
Hope this clarifies.

I do not aspirate. But your right the needle into the skin isn’t bad at all. Once you get the hang of it, it’s super easy.

To make sure that the needle is in the muscle not a vein, you aspirate. It means that after pushing needle all the way you pull back on the plunger and if you see air bubbles you are g2g whereas if you see blood, you are in the wrong spot and need to change the position of the needle.
Needle can be at any angle comfortable, just make sure you aspirate and hit the right spot.
