    SubQ Injection Sites and Rotation

    Hello! I was a frequent poster here several years ago, when I first got started with TRT. Once it got dialed in, I went on with my life. I am hoping to get some veteran advice from the experts here on one small item.

    I inject Test E every 4 days, and HCG every two days. For the Test E I use a 27 gauge "allergy" needle. For the HCG it is a 29 gauge insulin needle. For both, I do it SubQ. (I use relatively small amounts.)

    I only do injections in my belly fat, and I rotate 4 sites. Right love handle, right belly (2" from belly button), left belly, left love handle. I have been doing this for about 5 years. For the most part, I have no issues. Every couple months I will get a hard lump from a Test E injection, at the injection site, but it dissolves without issue. Of course, now and again I get slight bruising.

    I feel like everything is fine, and my regimen works. But I am a little concerned that rotating between 4 injection sites it not enough. (Although the HCG/insulin needles in particular do not seem to ever cause any trauma.) Can I proceed as I am doing? Or somewhere in the next decade or so am I going to regret not mixing things up more, and have an issue?

    Thanks a lot!

    Yes, you can proceed with what you are doing. You are pinning each site every couple of weeks or so, so it is fine.

    You can try and use other sites, leg and lower lat are also good spot for subq inj.

    Have you tried IM injection for your Test?

    Are you injecting test E into your stomach fat?

    I usually stick to glutes, delts, or sometimes "quads" for trt

    I have not tried IM. Subq much easier and less stressful for me.

    Yes, I only do stomach fat, rotating the 4 sites I outlined in my OP.

    I am doing legit, doctor supervised TRT, with relatively small amounts, keeping my hormone levels in normal ranges.
