Background: 31 year old male. 6’3, 200 lb. Good health. I’ve been lifting weight for years but haven’t been seeing the results I’d like lately so I thought I’d try a cycle of test e after some time researching. Was originally planning on pinning quads, but a friend of mine has had good luck with subq, which I researched and found some stuff from Dr Crisler and other doctors and thought that the whole slow absorption = more even levels and possibly less aromatization was appealing, so I wanted to give this method a try. Intended cycle was 250mg twice per week for ten weeks.
However, after one injection, I ran into an issue and tbh may put the whole cycle on hold because of it. Everything seemed fine with first pin, easy and painless. Then i started to get very sore at injection site around 12 hours after injection. The next morning, i had a very red and very swollen lump that was quite painful. Over the next two days, the redness, size, hardness and soreness increased drastically. Near the end of third day, it started to seem a bit better. It is now significantly less large(but still large tbh), less red, and a lot less painful(but still a little sore) than it was at the peak. Because of this and the fact that my body temp never went above 99.1, I believe that it isn’t a big infection. Is it smart to try to let this go away on it’s own? Also, what do you think may have happened? The concentration of what I have is 500mg/ml. Is high concentration gear more likely to cause this type of reaction? I used a sterile 18g syringe to back load a 28g insulin syringe to inject into stomach fat and used alcohol wipes on top of bottle and injection site. Is subq just a stupid idea? Its five days after injection and this lump is still pretty big, just nowhere near as swollen and red and painful as it was at peak. Should I go to prompt care to have them take a look or will this slowly go away on it’s own(if I do go in, what should I say happened)? This experience has made me reconsider even going through with this cycle. Should I have not trusted ugl stuff regardless of good reviews? Thanks for sharing any opinions you may have.
