I would have posted this in the TRT forum, but its been dead lately so I thought I might get a better response here.
I started TRT (T-cyp) last weekend and have done two injections so far. I am backfilling a 30 gauge, 1/2" inch (50 iu tick marks) insulin syringe from another needle with a 3 mL barrel.
I can transfer the oil from the bigger one to the smaller one no problem, but by the time I get the plunger in and the air bubble out the tip, I have lost a lot of my product.
For example last night, I squirted 30 iu into the insulin syringe, but by the time I was injecting, the tip of the plunger was down to like the 23-24 iu mark, so I lost quite a bit...it seemed to just continuously drip out...
I don't think this is due to pressure "compressing" the liquid or expanding the size of the syringe, so what gives? Am I doing something completely wrong?
