    Thigh injection

    Hi I have heard and read that many people have had a hard time injecting into their thigh. From the needle being painful on the way in, to the soreness lasting for a long time hardly able to walk.

    I want to know if they were doing something wrong or is the thigh a sensitive spot? I want to try this spot for my next inject.

    Everyone is different. It used to be one of my regular injection sites. Rarely any PIP. Then one day I had a severe cellulitis response and that has kept me away from the site since then.

    I've never pinned quads and never will. In my opinion there are far too many blood vessels, veins, and arteries in the area as well as nerves that risk being hit when pinning that area. I also don't like the idea that IF there is any PIP that it would make daily simple tasks like walking an absolute pain and a chore. This is why I prefer non-invasive sites such as the dorsogluteal or ventrogluteal over quads.

    I am assuming you mean quad? It's my favorite spot. Perhaps where I might be differeent than most is that I go into the quad slow instead of jabbing it in. I have hit nerves a number of times. My leg twitches a bit and I pull out, move a cpl inches one way or the other and bingo.

    That PIP crap is BS in my book. The only tome I ever had it was my first cycle and I believe the biggest cause is shaky rookie injections causing small tears in the muscle.

    Lunk isn't really human he's a cyborg and has congenital analgesia (i.e. he feels no pain).....and I like busting his balls!

    Atomini is correct. The quads are nerve dense and highly vascular. My cellulitis included a hematoma from perforation of a vessel which delayed my recovery. Best to stick to delts, glutes, and pecs or lats.

    Who doesn't love a nice twitch when injecting? Makes things interesting. But really, delts and lats are the absolute most easiest spots for me.

    My quad was my first ever pin. I didnt like it and only hit them when I need to. They're good for hitting high ML's, but I always find them painful. I dont even like sticking the pin in my leg actually but sometimes it has to be done.

    i've had to self inject for decades due to allergies, could use glutes or delt if i wanted but have only used quads. i guess i just like sitting down and having both hands free.

    Every time I have tried thighs (and I usually do at least once a cycle cause I forget why I hate them) I get a nice big twitch and stabbing pain and then burning pain for at least a couple days. Dunno why. W stuff like winny or tren I find pecs and then shoulders burn the least the day after.

    Do you jab the quads or push in slow?

    I do quads twice a week never had a problem. its weird when i do my left one it hurts a lil more then my right but not really any pain :/ They were my first poke too and that was the only time i got PIP but i was dumb and pushed the liquid in super fast so i assume thats why i got PIP.
