First Injection, Redness and Swelling

Pinned test 300 first time. Caused redness and some swelling and pain. Swell/red was about 4-5 inches in size. Thoughts on what caused it? Oil? First timer?

Pretty common to see this with test concentrations higher than 250. Also very common with test blends and synthetic carrier oils, MCT.

I would recommend Test E or Test C 200-250 with cottonseed or grapeseed oil.

Thank you. I’ll cut it in half to 150mg

I meant the concentration, not the dose. 300mg/mL is the same if taking 0.5mL or 1mL. What I meant is it needs to be a more dilute formulation, like 200mg/mL.
