    Exactly enough testosterone. How much will I lose?

    EDIT: How much Test oil is lost when squeezing the syringe to remove air

    The plan is a 12 week cycle with 500mg Test E per week.
    (500mg split to 2 injections per week)

    If I were to have exactly that amount, how should I use it?

    How much overall will I lose during injections.

    Should I plan out my small loss within the cycle?
    Say, only doing 400 on the first or last week?
    Or do I just measure exactly and allow whatever little is lost per injection to be lost?

    Or do the bottles contain slightly more than labeled to account for injection loss?

    Any info is greatly appreciated.

    I think you should take some time and read the sticky planning and executing my first successful cycle. That will answer most of your questions. How much you use will depend on what your gear is dosed at.

    I already know how much I plan on using, and I've already planned my cycle out.

    What I am asking, and what I have not found a good answer for yet on the forums, is how much I will lose in the process of injections. I know that you squirt a small amount of oil from the needle when getting rid of air from the syringe. How much does that amount add up to in a cycle?

    My cycle calls for 6000 mg total Test E.
    I have EXACTLY, 6000 mg Test E.

    Unless the bottles are slightly overweight to make up for any small loss...

    You been watching too much TV.That isn't how you do it.Leave a lil air in the syringe.This will push all your compound out.And no the air won't kill you.

    Most of them are always a ml under after all said and done w/injections... Like mentioned always grab more than the math comes out to!!!

    You may have everything planned out but is it right?? Check out the link again that Bio mentioned!

    Depends on what test you have. I have pharm grade test cyp and every ml has an extra .25 ml. And you shouldn't be loosing any test when you push the air out...only air.

    This is true... They overfill Pharma(RX) on purpose...

    Don't overthink this. You should have gotten an extra vial but if you can't get another don't sweat it. Just take what you need and your last injection might be underdosed.

    i understand what your cycle calls for but still no one can advise without knowing what your gear is dosed at?

    I have another cycle ready that I would either use at a later date or share with a friend who wants to cycle.
    If the loss is minimal I wont break into it. If I find I'm missing a lot by the end I'll just use that.

    Thank you for a legitimate answer.

    My pleasure. In the grand scheme of things it's a minor detail. Next time always order an extra vial of each compound per cycle. The good thing about doing this is you'll also build a stash that you can always dip into at a later date.
