I agree with millett, My wife wanted to inject me one time and she must of passed through a vien because when she pulled back there was no blood but when she pulled it out blood squirted out at her. You're ok

sometimes i bleed after shots in my ass, about 1 in 10, my gym buddie shoots me he aspirates sometimes but i recon sometimes he forgets too so about 50/50 on the aspiration front when i have glute injections

No biggie... it happens. After all, you just punched a hole an inch deep or more into your body with a sharpened piece of steel. You're gonna get some blood occasionally, even if you never hit a vein. But do let it be a little reminder to always aspirate .
