    Well, since you were shaking, you probably were moving the needle which will cause soreness. Don't worry, it gets easier the more you do it. You are fine.

    Congrats!!! Yes you will be fine. It is not uncommon to be sore after an injection and it might be sore for a day or so.

    I switch to a 25g needle for the injection and have no pain at all. When I used to use a 23g needle I always had soreness for 3-4 days.

    I use 1.5" for glutes but you should be ok with 1"

    IMO glutes should be ok for your only injection site at twice a week if you are switching sides

    Welcome to "pin city". Like the others said with practice you'll get better. Just massage the area for a while.


    Good luck with your cycle

    Alot has to do with what brand gear you use. I've used Ttokkyo before and got so sore I couldn't hardly sit down. Don't freak out if you have a knot come up...happens alot. It will go down in a few days. Tornel is the best non-human grade used so far. No soreness at all. I would try 23g next time...can't tell the difference and doesn't take as long to inject.

    after you shoot a few times you will not shake any more. it might also be your gear that is on the high ba side.

    Test E gives me a little soreness at first. (a day or two) Expecially when hitting a new spot. For me Quads and Glutes get more sore than Delts and Pecs. Taking a hot as I can stand shower while massaging the area helps too.

    I was both shaking and sweating my first shot. Now it's a breeze.

    To ease the injection process swich out needles, I use a 20 gauge to extract and a 23 gauge to inject

    Welcome bro! The first shot is the best. It gets alot easier day by day. If it's hella sore get a heating pad and apply it right after the injection. Massage it good. Wait until you try test prop. You'll be on your knees..
