I am 3 weeks into SubQ Test injections and I have a lot to learn, a lot of questions and a lot of concerns.
First - The “doctor” that got me on it I think is a quack so I will be switching to Defy Medical shortly. I know I’ll get lots of comments about how I need a new doctor… I know. that’s the plan.
I had low T, I took natural supplements like Tribulus, etc, and got up to a 370. I finally went to this shady outfit who put me on T cream, an AI and HCG. Nothing worked but the AI and my estrogen plummeted to less than 1, hair is falling out, putting on fat, no libido, puffy water weight, etc. I stopped that and started injections.
I’m 3 weeks into SubQ injections every Monday an Thursday. The first few went fine but the last 2 in a row (i alternated sides) didn’t go so well. I inject in between my navel and my love handles. The first one on the left side was fine for 2 days then hurt like hell, lumped up and got hard. Now the second side is lumped up and doesn’t hurt but itches like a bug bite and is red in about a 3" circle.
I’m using 27g, 1/2 needles.
Am I doing something wrong? The first side is slowly going back down but has been almost a week. No bruising, just a perfect red circle.
What to do? I have so many TRT questions and the more I read the more I realize I don’t know. The only thing I know is it takes patience and Defy is good so… I plan on continuing and going with them so at least I know I’m in good hands.
