    Question Aspirate, but no blood or bubbles???

    So check this out bro's
    Today I do my normal quad injection, but something strange occurred. I stuck the pin in, aspirated, but no air bubbles....Nor was there any blood. Just nothing, nothing happened. Well i took it out, restuck, and got my normal bubbles. Everything went fine after that. Have any of you ever experienced this before?

    A couple of other details that might help explain this situation.
    - I'm cycling some star cap diuretics
    - Yesterday I put a sizeable gash in my left foot from a boat propellar

    Any ideas are much welcomed.

    Sometimes when u aspirate you cannot pull any bubbles or blood. Just means you are in dense tissue thats all. Don't worry about it.

    Dense tissue, interesting. So is appropriate to continue shooting into this tissue, or is it necessary to in poke?

    If you aspirate (with reasonable force) and find no bubbles (and it's hard to pull the plunger) then inject away.

    If you hit a vein it will take no effort at all to aspirate blood.

    Thats true about hitting a vein...I hit one last night...I felt it...but I figured I went through it...I aspirated...and got blood. No biggie...pulled out the pin...switch needles..and went again...smooth as buttah!

    Those are not air bubbles. You pulling back in vaccum and it is the oil shifting around apearing like bubbles.

    As long as there is not blood you are fine.
