Probs when injecting into thighs
Im trying to widen my options for injections because at the min I only use the Glutes to inject into.
The problem is, when I start my next cycle for cutting, Im going to be using Prop EOD so dont think it a good idea to stick to Glutes ?!!
So, a few weeks back I used the thigh to inject into, and it wasnt too bad - felt diff I think mainly cos the muscle is harder in that area. Then a little later I tried the other leg - I must have hit a nerve or something cos it hurt like hell!! It really burned so I pulled out and used the Glute instead.
Now, today, I went to use the thigh again. This time I pushed the needle in, for the first part it felt OK, then I felt a sore spot, then I felt another one as it went right in and this time it made the thigh muscle twitch!! So, this was too sore, thought again I must have hit a nerve, so pulled out.
I changed the needle, and tried again, in a slightly diff spot (The last also blead quite a bit). This time I only got about 1/4 of the 1.5" needle length, and it felt like the needle was red hot on fire !! burned like hell again - and still does now even after 10mins rest for it!
So, to end it, I used the Glute again. I dont know if I can bare to try the thighs again though!!
does anyone have any ideas on why I have these problems ??? I do the usual, clean it, stretch the skin, insert, aspirate etc etc.
Any info welcome - thanks!!

holy ****...21g 1.5in wow...your a bigger man than i am....23g, 1in are my preferrence. I use those for both glute and thigh shots. a 21g 1/2in could be very painful in the thigh. Good luck bro.

Thanks so far.
I didnt actually know the size of my pins until I just looked and realised it was 21G 1.5" ! I get them free in a "C" pack from the local chemist so Im only going to use them.
As for being relaxed, suppose I am more nervous in the thigh because of not doing it much, also the pain from the 2nd time put me off a bit. And, the more I keep getting this pain from it, the more nervous I am about it! Anyway, I sit on my comp chair and let the leg relax as much as I can. I do find it hard to relax because that area has very low fat and it always seems pretty tense!!
thanks so far guys

this is also my first cycle so that prob dont help wi the nerves - very comfortable doing the glutes though - onyl had a prob once where I drew back blood, and it did hurt a little more too, but I even used the dulled pin tonight and found no probs with the glutes!

23g 1" only insert 5/8" deep.
03-13-2005, 01:43 PM #12
Next time I inject Ill try it again, Ive used the right thigh and that was the first time I had the burning pain, tonight was with tht left thigh for both. Got to get used to it !! only 2 weeks on this cycle left and then its my next one in 10 weeks and I dont think I can do EOD injections in the glutes can I ?????? Mind you, Ill prob give it a go if the thigh injections dont work too well!!
03-13-2005, 01:44 PM #13
aha hm i always put it in all the way (think i have the 23g aswell)
03-13-2005, 01:48 PM #14
It is not a safe practice to insert the pin all the way. It the needle breaks it would mean a trip to the hospital.
5/8" deep using 1"
1 1/4" using 1 1/2"

do yourself a huuuuuuge favor and get 25g
03-13-2005, 01:57 PM #17
are 25G pins OK for oil based ones ????
Also, I never go right in, always leave some left at the end.
thanks so far again
03-13-2005, 02:08 PM #18
25g works fine - but is a bit flimsy if longer than 1 " - BTW I have used 27G pins with good success but takes forever to push it - must be patient

I just did my first two quad injections. 23g 1.5" and 25g 1". I sit down, put leg out in front of me and wham.
It is a lot easier than glutes! I get so fricking twisted around aspirating my glute that I need to go to a chiropractor after every injection.
03-14-2005, 03:13 AM #20
I do all my shots in the thighs or calves. I tried glutes, but couldnt find a way that would be comfortable at all!
Hmm, to each his own...
The trick for the thighs is to do it sitting down with your leg out in front of you and NO WEIGHT on it at all!
Hope this helps...!
03-14-2005, 03:18 AM #21
Bro you just gotta relax, when I first did quads I was tense and I could never get it right. I suggest just finding the spot, closing your eyes, and sticking it in.

I did enjoy one members thread who actually did have this happen. Haha, just do what he did and use some plyers to get it out, screw the hospital .

I use 27's for thighs..takes a while, but I cannot find a space that doesnt hit a nerve with a larger needle.

I'm going to keep trying but I am really put off by it now.
How about the Delts ?? I think I could manage that but maybe needle again too big ?
Thanks for the input so far guys

I honestly prefer injecting in delts. You can see what your doing and it seems to absorb faster than glutes since you have lot less fat. Also, it seems as my upper body has completely blown up since i've been injecting in delts. I usually go with a 21g. in gluts and shoulders. Doesnt hurt too bad, and no matter how many times I've done it, I always seem to get a little nervous but in the end all worth it. Good luck.

5/8" deep using 1"
1 1/4" using 1 1/2"
The needle will not break....try and push that against a wall or carpet sometime and see if it will break. It doesnt..it takes alot of pressure. With that said, i still leave a little bit out.

Im with exactly wot xxelitexx says on that matter - just thought Id add it in!!
Anyway,I think I may try the delt next time to see how it goes - providing I aint got shoulder session too close to that one!
So the 1.5" 21G pin is good enough to go on the delt though yes ?

My thighs have the same problem... ive done them by myself over 50 times but for some reason they are definetly painfull... one thing I have noticed is instead of going to far over on the side of your leg stay more centralized... like the middle outside rather than where I see a lot of diagrams show... I have much less pain that way... Good Luck.

Jbone what size pin do you use ? You ever used 1.5" 21G ?? If so, you think it makes much difference usng this size compared to say, a 1" 25G ???
Thanks for the info so far everyone
