Just started my first cycle last Monday and everything has been going good until my pin yesterday morning. Injected 1ml at 250 mg of test e as normal but today I have bruising, swelling like a lump, and mild pain at the injection site. You can visibly see a lump on my butt cheek.
After reading some I’m either leaning toward I’ve knicked a vein or the test went subq post injection. I read a lot before I started but admittedly not enough about proper procedure apparently. I now know I should have left the needle in for a minute before removing and injected a lot slower than I was. I think I may have not gone deep enough into the glute because I tried a different angle due to it being easier to reach. Either that, or this happened because I have an office job and sat on my ass the rest of the day after pinning before going to the gym that night. I didn’t rub the area really either after (stupid).
So my question is should I wait this out and see if it resides in a day or two since this just happened yesterday, or head to the ER now to get it drained or whatever. If at all possible I’d like to avoid that due to a high deductible health plan but I’m also not going to fuck with my health either.
Anyone else had anything similar before or am I the lucky one?
