    Yeah, I'm glad you bumped it, or I would have never seen it. Good info.

    Ohh come on! Just buy more needles. They are cheap. I know there is a link to the pins here somewhere if I can find it. There is one for syringes too. I just forget where the links are.. Damn!

    Silly question... do you want to bottom out the needle? (Stick it all the way in) or leave a little bit still sticking out before you get to the bottom of the syringe?

    I assume thats why you have different length needles so you can just "poke" it in with one quick motion and not worry about how far it goes?

    i used one needle to draw it out all through my cycle, i think it was like a 30gauge it was huge, made the juice come out better. then i would switch back to the normal size witch i threw away after every use.

    I used to switch needles everytime. Then I decided to use the same pin that I sucked it with...and noticed absolutely no difference. Lot faster, and cheaper to use the same one.

    I will replace the pin if I hit the side of the vial though.

    holy crap! what did they inject that needle into, the bone?!? lol

    no, you always want to be able to see just a tiny bit of the needle. i would never go all the way to the plastic.

    and ppl, please stop saying "suck out the juice". it's called DRAWING UP. you draw up a medication in a syringe.

    also, to the guy that used the same pin to draw for a full cycle...what do you think grows on that pin when it sits in your medicine cabinet? THAT is dangerous. Now drawing up and then injecting with the same needle isn't going to introduce bacteria because your solution is sterile and you should have sterilized the top so it's all good.

    Anyone ever had a nurse change out a needle after she draws up an injection? In our office we don't. The only times needles are ever used to just draw is if it's not going into a patient and then we use 18g to draw it up and then inject it into a piggyback or something like that.

    Okay if you are switching pins, after you pull your gear in, hold the needle down (I assume you are doing amps instead of vials).
    When you hold the needle down, your air pocket will be at the top of your gear. Draw back on the plunger real slow not to hard or you will find your gear all over the place. This will draw the gear into the tube itself and out of the needle. (now this will increase the air pocket, but it will get all of the gear out of the needle when you get ready to change it. You will loose some, but not that much if you do it this way.
    Turn the needle upside down, to make the air pocket be closer to the needle. Change out your pin. the next step is to get that air pocket and air bubbles out of your gear.
    Hold the needle upside down, then start SLOWLY pushing the air pocket. If you go slow enough and do it right, you will hardly loose any gear. Also with a little practice, you will be able to push the air pocket all the way up and out of the needle without spilling one drop of gear. Good luck, hope this answers your question, and sorry for being soo long.
    EXCELLENT POST.. My new g/f is a nurse, but I don't think I want her to know that I'm taking aas..

    Amp - 1 needle is enough
    Vial - 2 needles usually recommended because of the dulling of the needle but imho, you can do it with one as well.

    My favorite technique (if you have some extra few bucks) is to draw with 18g and inject with 25g. Fast, easy, hygienic, and painless!
