    When using a pin, do you penetrate slowly or use a quick 'jab' ?

    Just wondering what method you use when you inject. Do you press against the skin and then insert slowly, or do you make entry with a quick jab?

    I used to do it nice and slow as well. Ive found it much better to do it fast.

    If you are new and have never done it yet, It is MUCH easier to talk yourself into injecting slow vs. darting yourself. I always inject slow.

    Agreed. Faster is the way to go. That is why people in the medical profession do it this way.

    I have to agree hitting a nerve would not be fun. So i go the slow route

    used to go slow but i found it easier to kinda jab it in real quick at first to break the skin (closer to the top is where i feel any pain) so i jab it in to get by then go slow to avoid a nerve...

    slow, why go fast and risk jamming the pin right into a nerve... i mean the pain from the intial injection is typically nothing compared to how sore the muscle is the next day

    I can tell you how I do it to other people at work, and its fast. I am not talking about going pulp fiction on the IM site, but its more painful to do it slow. Know where you are putting it and you shouldn’t be hitting anything anyways. Now, with that said I have yet to do it to myself yet, so I have no idea what its going to be like when I have to talk myself into it. Know your landmarks and go for it.

    Fast or slow doesn't matter to me...warm the juice in teh syringe under hot water...push a little out on the needle for lube...inject slow. One thing I don't care for is stretching the skin because if I let go; it seems to make the needle bend and I can feel it in my muscle...(not very comfy and makes me sweat). Straight in...straight out.

    I go fast and have never hit a nerve. Im not sore after or the next day. Like I said in an earlier post, nurses also do it this way.

    I start fast just to break the skin then slow into the muscle in case i hit a nerve. Take your time once you start injecting this also eases any pain!

    I pierce the skin quickly (first 1/8th" or so) and then gently glide the pin in the rest of the way.
