With all the threads I've read on this forum, as well as other forums, the general consensus seems to be that if you're suggesting to run an oral only cycle you WILL get flamed. The primary reasons are as follows:
1) Very harsh on the liver
2) Not as much gains as injectables
3) You'll lose alot of your gains when you're done
4) What little gains you will get is not worth the damage you're doing to your body
MAN UP AND PIN!! INJECTABLES ARE WAY SAFER THAN ORALS!!!! (at least, that's what they keep screaming at me)
I've been reading up about injectables and I keep running into threads that discuss injection issues. It seems to me that injecting these compounds into your body is far from safe:
1) Impurities in the compound causing pain and swelling at the injection site
2) Hitting the lymphatic system (even though the risk is small there is still a risk) causing extreme localized swelling and pain with resulting edema
3) Injection site infection
4) Injecting into tendons or other dangerous areas (by accident, obviously)
So, if the compound gets administered properly and without issue it is safer than orals. However, there is alot of risk getting that compound into your body, isn't there?
My question to all of you: Are injection issues a regular occurance? Rare? If so, how rare? Have some of you out there been lucky enough to NEVER experience an injecton problem? Perhaps even most of you? How likely or unlikely is it for a complete noob to botch an injection even though he knows where the principle injection sites are?
When you consider all this, you have to stop and think before you flame guys doing oral only cycles. Perhaps the gains aren't as great. However, as long as they control their dosages they are actually quite safe in comparison... aren't they?
I've been PETRIFIED of needles as long as I can remember. In fact, I had a nurse at my place just the other day taking a blood sample for my new insurance company. Just the feeling of that needle in my vein was making me have a mild panic attack. But, I think I can be man enough to get over my fear of needles and JUST DO IT. But now I have a whole other bunch of fears to worry about with injection issues.
What are your thoughts on all this?
