I"m on Week 6 - and injection #6 of 100mg Test Cyp. I’ts actually .5ml of 200mg - the small vials that come in the 1ml size.
My very first injection - supervised by the nurse - went very well. NO pain at all - even afterwards.
My next 5 injections have all had some varying amounts of pain - either durning the actual injection or - hours / days afterwards. I am getting better at it (I did hit a nerve once and tweaked my entire leg).
Today’s injection was easy. Found a good spot on my quad. Quick poke, aspirate, and slowly press the plunger. No pain…until about an hour later, and now it hurts - not bad, but not at all like my very first injection.
I’m using a 23 gauge 1.5" needle to inject. Drawing with an 18g. My doc didn’t like the idea of using 1" needles or anything smaller than 23g.
I’m looking for any advice/tips etc… to lessen the after injection pain.
