Thread: injection question
05-20-2004, 02:18 PM #1
this is a dumb question i'm sure, but why change needles when drawing and injecting? does everyone do this...and i do and dont mind as its cheap (the needles ) but just wondered, i cant see how there would be anything wrong with using the needle you drew with.
also im ordering my syringes/needles, ordered :
5ml Terumo Syringes pack of 100
Blue (Long) Needles 23G x 1.25 Inches pack of 100 (for injecting the glutes/quads)
Terumo Neolus Short Orange Needles 25gx5/8 Inches per 100 (for bi/tri/delt)
Terumo Neolus Needles (Long Orange) 25g x 1 Inch pack of 100 (can be used anywhere?)
and alcahol wipes for pre injection...is there anything wrong with any of what i ordered?:|
any suggestions appreciated

When you poke through that rubber stopper you dull the needle. If you don't mind more pain, use the same one to shoot.

Yikes. Those are vicious looking. IMO Map you need 2 needle sizes, 23g 1.5" for you booty, 25g 1" for everything else, depending on how lean you are you could probably get away with just the 25g for you glutes.

no i've never used a vial opener in my entire life. just break it on the line and be sure to not get frustrated when doing it or that ****er will break into a million pieces and then you'll be pissed

ive never switched needles out after drawing and im fine, always inject with a 22 too not a 25.

23G x 1.25 Inches would be ok for the thigh/quads yea?

Bro, you could use inch on your thigh, men dont store fat in that area. depending on how much body fat you have you could go with the inch everywhere imo. I go with the bone scratches, I like it deep..
you can buy amp openers online for 5$, I use them and they work well, but if you dont want to go down to your local hardware store and get a small file, on the line of the vial make a score with the file, then just tap or snap the top off. your good to go

Less scare tissue. Since you'll be doing many injections over a period of time, change the needle to help prevent scare tissue.
