So I am about to start self injecting my trt. 100mg/week, but soon (after blood tests) I will likely switch to twice weekly (50mg/twice a week).
I am prescribed those tiny 1ml bottles (200mg/ml). I have 25g 1 inch needles for IM injections. I want to use this protocol for at least 6 weeks, then retest. THEN, possibly move to SQ.
My concern is that the 1ml bottle won’t last through the 4 draws I’ll need it for. Each draq will be 50mg and will be used up after 4 draws. That’s 4 times the waste in the dead space, etc.
My thought is this: draw the weeks’ testosterone into one syringe (100mg, or half the bottle). Inject half on Monday, take off needle, place new needle on, wait til Thursday and inject the second half. This should eliminate some waste.
Is it safe to leave test in a syringe for a few days?
And yes, I know about SQ and it’s waste benefits, etc. I will likely go there at some point, but for now, please just let me know thoughts on the above.
EDIT: OR, draw the full 100mg out of the vial into the syringe, and just use that same syringe (changing needles each time) and using it the 4 times I need to? (something screams this wouldn’t be sterile)
