In life there are also those who are beyond the help of contribution.
If you’ve used before, as you state, why would you try to “unscrew” the top? Why did you taste the Test? These things are unnecessary and detrimental to safe ussage.
Also, if you’re going to use the gear, I would recommend getting a syringe filter, because after taking the top off and the tasting, it very likely could be contaminated, which can cause you a world of unpleasantless.

There you go again with presumptive critism.
If you saw the picture of the cap that I posted to this thread, you would have seen it says lift and twist. That is what I did. I opened a vial of sterile water last night and it opened as usual leaving the crimping in place. The test vial was different. Shit happens. Resourceful people deal with it and take action for the best outcome of less than ideal circumstances.
As for tasting a small amount taken from the rubber stopper and NOT the vial, that was a suggestion from KSman who is widely recognized as a well respected, extrememly knowledgable vet on this and the “over 35 lifter” forums. I didn’t flip the vial into my mouth and chug it down.
The filter idea is not a bad one, however I really didn’t mess with the oil before pre-loading it in the syringes and have a high degree of confidence that its integrity was not compromised.
There have been many a respected, long-time forum member who have provided constructive comments to my thread. Why don’t you join that gang instead of soley poking criticism?
My intentions for this thread are to learn and also to provide a chronicle of what I went through in my pursuit of a successful cycle and subsequent HRT. I know reading this thread when I started would have helped to guide me, so I feel it is of value to many.
