then you'll end up injecting directly into your blood stream even though you aspirated and got no blood
all it takes is a little slip

Pulling gear from your vial:
(These steps must be followed every time prior to injecting)
- Wash your hands thoroughly prior to everything.
- Clean the tops of your vials with an alcohol swab(allow it to dry on it's own. DO NOT BLOW ON THE VIAL)
- Open your syringe + Pin.
(DO NOT TOUCH THE PIN. You do not want to contaminate the gear)
(USE A NEW SYRINGE AND PIN EVERY TIME - THEY ARE CHEAP)
- Pull back on the plunger to about how much you will be injecting
(If your injecting 1cc then pull back to about 1cc of air prior to stabbing your vial)
- Stab your vial and push in the air. This will create a vacuum effect so pulling the gear should be easier.
-I would highly recommend using a 21-22 gauge to pull the gear. 23-25 gauge can be somewhat difficult.
-It is possible but remember stabbing through that rubber stopper can dull the needle... Which can and will cause some pain and discomfort.
Injecting your Gear:
- Once again make sure you do not touch the needle in any of these steps.
- If you are changing your needle between pulling and injecting, be sure to pull air before switching so you do not waste any gear.
- Make sure air bubbles are all at top and slowly push on the plunger until you get some fluid.
(Do not worry if it runs down the needle. It will do no harm. It is sterile. If anything it helps lube it up)
- Clean the site you will be injecting with alcohol. (Once again, do not blow on it)
- Push the needle into the muscle. Some choose to do it quick others choose to do it slowly. It is up to you
(DO NOT push it all the way in. Keep some of the needle visible. If it were to ever snap off, you do not want to be going to the ER because you pushed it in all the way)
- Once the needle is into the muscle. You MUST aspirate . Pull back on the plunger slightly. If you see small what looks like air bubbles you are good. If you see droplets of blood. Pull out and change your needle because you most likely are in a vein. And should not be injecting there.
- Push the gear into the muscle slowly and steadily.
- Once plunger is fully pushed down. Wait about 10 secs before pulling the needle out.

Your shooting with a 1 1/2 and putting it all the way in. Stupid. All u need is a 1 1/2 inch for glute. everything else 1inch is fine.

NP recently did a post on another forum. so i just copied it LOL....
if it bled u probably nicked a vein. as long as you are aspirating. your good to go.
(Pull back on syringe slightly you should see small air bubbles) Good to go if no blood
