    Stupid question about steralisation

    Ok this maybe a dumb question but it'll prob. help other noobs when they hit the search button

    I've been planning on starting my B-12 injections today before I get my Test E I'm all psyched up to have my first injection but the darn alcohol swabs never come in the post today.

    Are the needles and syringes that are prepacked already steralised? If I took a hot bath and hit myself in the glutes without swabbing am I risking too much? I could I know just wait until they arrive but i've been saying that today is the day to start myself off and dont want to put it off now.

    Why not just go Sainsburys or Tesco and get some Isopropryl Alcohol 70% and cotton wool from there? Then you can start today.

    the only thing you can catch if youe butt is not sterile..is something you probably already have! so since you took a hot shower then you are ok because the syringe and needle are as sterile as anyhting if they were in the packaging, you B12 contains only B12, and you butt has just been washed by hot in hot water and soap, the only contamination is probably from the towel which hopefully only you use, in which case you wont cathc anyhting new. And ofcourse there is always the risky factor of 'air contamination' wich will require you to be injecting while closely mooning the face of a sneezing/coughing abola infected japanese military experiment patient from WW2! what are the chances?
