hey, I've got a problem with leakage after I inject. I always lose an amount when I withdraw the needle. Am I doing something wrong?? I inject slowly if that's any help.

nope ure not doing anything wrong. just happens. u wont be able to get everythin out of the pin and sometimes it leaks out a lil.

do u mean leakage from the needle or the flesh where u injected ?
if u mean the flesh...then...
yes u are doing something wrong.
u are supposed to place an alcohol swab on the injection site and apply pressure to prevent the oil from leaking out. the reason the oil leaks out is because of the differences in pressure. also. after u are done injecting. leave the needle in for 20 seconds to let the oil spread. but if i were u i would use an alcohol swab immediately after. if u dont u are crying for an infection !

It's from the flesh. I do swab before and after injections. Usually when I swab after the injection, There'll be a tiny amount of blood and some oil leaking.

apply pressure and massage the point of injection for a min this helps prevent infection and good for keeping the oil in you..

Theres a method of injection called z-track which will minimize, if not stop, leakage.
Here's a site to intramuscular injection methods. Scroll down to the section labled "z-track:"

You're not doing anything wrong. However, ther are ways to minimize the amount that leaks out like the other guys said. Just like anything else, it takes practice to perfect.
