    Traumatized by recent IM injection - would like info on IGF-1 injection safety


    Hi everyone, Iím new here. My name is James, I am 26 years old, weigh 208, and have been training for about 7 years now. I have found plenty of useful on this forum, and for that I'd like to thank everyone here. I've finally decided to sign up.

    I have always had a lot of trouble keeping my gains with traditional PCTs. I always use HCG on cycle, and then use Clomid + Nolva. My diet is spot on, and I train hard.

    Thatís why I was thinking of using IGF-1 in between cycles in order to help me keep my gains. Here is my problem though.

    Iíve read that the product needs to be injected directly into the muscle which is trained (bilaterally), using a slin pin.

    A few days ago a had a bad test E injection in my left thigh. I had an abcess and have been in and out of the hospital for the past week. I was prescribed antibiotics and anti-inflammatories which have completely killed my appetite and destroyed my stomach. Anyway itís been a real nightmare.

    Iíve decided not to inject steroids again, but only to use orals because of this bad experience. Iíve been through so much **** this past week, that it would be psychologically impossible to do it again for me, knowing I could just use orals.

    But I would still like to use IGF-1 to keep my hard-earned gains. I would like to know how safe the IM IGF-1 injections are ? Are there any chances of abcess, when mixing it with BacWater (with 0.9% Sodium Cloride), and injecting directly into the muscle.

    Thanks guys.

    There is NO difference in safety. What makes it safe or not (as far as infection goes) is your sterile procedure, and the sterility of the product you are injecting.

    Hey, thanks for your reply.

    After reading a lot of posts, something still seems unclear to me, as there are a lot of different opinions on the matter.

    With IGF-1 LR3 does it really matter if the substance is injected directly into the muscle or if it is just shot sub-Q ? People seem to disagree a lot about this one. Psychologically I would feel much more at ease doing sub-q shots given my abcess after an IM shot. But obviously I won't if everybody tells me it would do jack for my muscles..

    You are gonna get different replies from different people. I am in the camp that says bi-lateral injections after working out the muscle. Its what has worked for me. I load 40mcg's into a 1cc slin pin, then load the rest of the pin with bac. water, and inject half into each muscle. To me, that is the only way to be assured you are getting enough into that muscle. Sub-q, and it goes systemic first, and the muscle gets some unknown amount. Shoot right into the muscle, and it gets (supposedly) what it needs and the rest goes systemic. Again, this is just what has worked for me.

    After workout is bad due to.problems with mgf, due one hour pre workout go to **** forum RussianStar.wrote a perfect write up. Also u mix with AA not BAC and store.in.fridge, LASTLY BE CAREFULL WITH IT ESPECIALLY AFTER MIXING IT IS VERY SENSATIVE TO MOVEMENT ITS FRAGILE AND A SMALL SHAKE CAN DAMAGE IT. p.s. Stick needle in vial before doing anythin to release some build up pressure before reconstituding it never inject subq only lagging muscles

    You can mix it with bac water and it's not gonna make a difference. The only difference is that you won't have to preload the syringe and freeze it. I mix mine with bac water and have seen the same results as my buddy who mixed with aa water. Mixing is all based on personal opinion. As far as IM injection I haven't had any problems. Just make sure you aspirate prior to injection to make sure you dont have it in a vein.

    I'm not knocking your way at all so don't think that. I just prefer not to preload my syringe and then freeze it.

    And everything I've read says the complete opposite haha. This is why I don't read into them too much. I get all my gear from the chemist my buddies use. I do exactly as he says. To me it's all personal preference in the end.
