    Talking 1" Needle

    I used the 1" needle for my first injection of Test E today, in my left shoulder.
    (I only use my delts, they just feel right)

    Anyways, I went all the way in with the needle - I used to use 1" needles, but I got $2 off on these. So they basically cost me nothing haha.

    So what is a proper length to go in? Should I leave a little of the needle out from the injection site, or should the entire 1 length be used.

    1" is fine

    I dont know about you but my hand is not steady enough to go in only 2/3 of the way and hold it there while injecting. the full inch and a half would end up all the way in. Just buy the proper needles. 3/4 - 1 inch for delts. needles are dirt cheap and it will make your life easier.

    all I use is 1.5's. Use as much of it as you need to. Long as your in muscle your good. No-one ever designed a certain length needle for different injections, this is where you skills come into play after so many pins

    ha, okay thanks a lot guys.
    Either way, I'll try it out with keeping a bit of needle out for the injection (as I have before I believe) and if that doesn't feel right, i'll head back to the 1" pins.

    ah-thank ya

    What if it went too deep?

    My shoulder has felt real weird since Monday 12pm (pinning time). Like a big bruise that is constantly uncomfortable. Now Wednesday, still uncomfortable.
    Clean gear, alcohol wiped down, 2 different needles (to pull and push) and it CLEARLY went deep enough.

    I just wonder why it is so damn uncomfortable. Went through the muscle probs...

    I doubt you went too deep... maybe just deeper than youre used to, which is causing the discomfort. Just do what everyone else said and only put the dart in partially.

    Another thing is that the further the pin goes in and any kind of movement will make it feel more painful after injecting which is why it is a good idea to try and keep the dart as steady as you possibly can to prevent any bruising on the inside. I always find it awkward when using my opposite hand for jabs like delts and glutes eg: left delt/ left glute

    yeah it's just bruising, it's gotta be

    the only downside to leaving a bit of needle out - is paranoia setting in, that I left too MUCH out and I fear getting an abscess.

    /sigh

    I'll prob just go with AL's piece of advice, 1" all the way.
