I am 14 days into my first Tren A cycle (100mg EOD) and I am concerned that I may have bad gear that is harmful. To date I have not experienced any side effects at all (night sweats, increase agression, etc) and have not seen any strength gains. I know it can take a while to see these things but most people report SOMETHING by the second week.
To make matters worse I am experiencing significant pain and swelling at the injection site. I have rotated sites (glute, quad, delt) and used different vials (from the same source) to eliminate these as the cause. I went to the doc in a box and the nurse said she didn't think it was an infection because there were no red streaks at the injection site.
I have been on TRT injecting Test C for the past two years so I am a veteran at IM self injections. I know I am getting the gear into the muscle and am not jerking the needle around or injecting with unsanitary conditions.
I should mention that the first three injections were only 50mg because I misread the label on the vial and miscalculated how many ml were needed. The last five injections were the full 100mg and were also the ones where I experienced the pain and swelling.
I don't want to give up now if the gear will eventually kick in but at the same time I don't want to keep putting something in my body that may be harmful.
