    Is My Delt Infected? WTF?

    This was my 5th shot, this Sunday will be 21 days into my cycle.

    This is what I did:
    1. cleaned table w/disinfectant
    2. washed hands
    3. laid gear out
    4. pulled w/20 g pin, just more than I needed
    5. changed to a 25 g pin
    6. got the air out
    7. inserted the dart into my delt and aspirated
    8. injected the gear this past Monday night
    9. everything went normal

    Now my delt is slighty swollen and hurts, its a bit red as well and feels a bit hotter than my other delt.

    Is this an infection? WTF?

    Same here, usually in the glutes gets all red and hot but does go away in about 4-5 days for me. Just keep an eye out it doesn't get worse or bad swelling.

    I always do that as well. It is certainly worth doing and you should always clean the top of the vial.

    its pretty normal bro, try using a heating pad to dispurse the oil. never cold! you can massage the site after injection and totate the shoulder to try and dispurse as well.

    Hey fitness, are you still taking the propecia? I hope the article was helpful. Also how's that test blend treating you?

    THanks for the article, it was helpful. Still taking the propecia and will be for quite some time. The test blend is working well (besides the delt problems). Tomorrow will be the beggining of week 4 and I have gained 11lbs.

    Just have to start adding the glutes and quads into the rotation and give my delts a rest for a few weeks.

    No problem on the article. Congrats on the 11lbs. and don't stress the delt you'll survive bro, think nitzche, that which doesn't kill you will make you stronger, I think that applies to delts too? lol

    Glutes were real bad for me, couldnt sit for days and never got used to it. Same stuff and amount in quads (upper outter thighs) and no inflamation or aches, pains, etc.
