I inject 40mg EOD sub q with a 30 gauge, 1/2 .5ml insulin syringe 1.5 inches or so alternating on the right and left of my belly button.
Sometimes there is a little pinch feeling, but most of the time, 0 pain. You’ll get used to it, and once you start feeling awesome, you will be excited for injection day… Because you know that you will soon start feeling better.
For me, I can usually tell something’s happening about 12-16 hours after my injection. I don’t know exactly if it’s the esters starting to be cleaved off the T and pure T starting to be distributed into my body, some T being converted to E and making me feel better or a combination of both… All I know is I feel a great sense of well being all over my body, have lots of energy and don’t hesitate to do or say anything I want to.
I started with a prescibed does of 50mg twice a week and when that wasnt providing relief, dr upped to 60mg twice a week. I took it upon myself to move to EOD, told my doc about it and he was fine with it as long as I was feeling good and didn’t have signs of gyno. I vary my dose some, which equates to 140mg a week, because I feel better higher…but prescribed dose is 60mg twice a week.
One year later and I don’t regret it one bit.
