I know there have been a number of posts on sub q injection sites and recommended needle sizes and lengths etc, but I just wanted a little clarification on injection sites and techniques because I’m still a little unsure.
I’ve been testing sub q injection sites as I read everyone is different and some sites seem to be better than others, depending in the person. I’m quite a slim guy with not a lot of fat in me.
So far I’ve done -
- love handles which worked well. I only did a test .10 ml shot. Very little pain and no lumps under the skin.
- belly which was more painful. Another .10 ml shot which left a small pee sized lump which was quite sore.
- glute which was very painful. Did .20 ml here and had strong pain like a bee sting for about three hours. Then pain completely gone.
Next test shot will be in the quads but Im a little worried about all the veins there and the fact I am so lean on my quads. I read that I should do the upper quad because there was more fat. I wanted ask how high is safe? because I only have fat right at the very top of my legs. Is it safe to inject their?
Thanks in advance.
