I am currently injecting my Test Cyp Subcutaneously via 29g Monoject insulin pins into my love handles. Alternating from side to side with each injection.
At the moment I pull back the air ( = to my dose ) and inject the air into the vial. Then I turn the vial upside down and pull the plunger back to my dose and wait ( 2-3 minutes ).
Firstly, is that the correct way to do it? Secondly…
I have found it almost impossible to get ALL of the air out with such a small needle. I can tap to get it all into a single air bubble and can get MOST of it out but the last little bit always wastes some test by having the air bubble force out whatever was in the needle itself.
So basically I am asking this…
- Am I injecting correctly?
- I am not aspirating with SC like I did with IM. Is this also correct?
And most importantly…
- How do I get ALL of the air out ( this was not a problem with larger IM needles) without wasting 10% or more of every dose?
