My First IGF experience

My First IGF experience
Well I just started pinning IGF yesterday so I thought I'd post a short log with anything I notice from it.
I am using it pre-cycle for 1-2 weeks (then I'll use it again in pct for 3-4 weeks). I am pinning 50mcg bi laterally 4x/week. Injection sites will be:
Pinned 50mcg into tri's yesterday. For some reason I was really freaked out to pin tri's (never pinned them before) but once I did it, it was way easier then I thought.
The one problem I had was doing it pwo. I mean I am so jacked up on stims and shaking so bad from my workout I had a really hard time keeping a steady hand. Nonetheless I pinned fine with no bruising or anything.
Also it sucks pinning such a small amount. I have 100mcg bottles and once I recon them it your almost sucking up nothing into that needle! I am pinning with 1/2cc, 1/2 in needles mixed with B12.
One other thing is that I waited 20 min after pinning to see if I got hypo at all and didnt really notice anything. I'll try to update with any changes or questions.

Friggin pinned quads tonight. I have a lot of veins in my legs and of course I hit one...wasnt sure at first so I kept going and Im pretty sure I then hit a nerve cause I got a chill that went up into my arm and it sorta jerked a little. Pulled out and pinned both quads without any more trouble.

What size needle to you stick in the quad? 25g's can prick a little when you're stickin' it in. I have a tendency for the muscle to twitch when the needle penetrates that tissue: does not feel pretty.

I just started IGF a week ago. Pinning 50mcg, 3x a week, bilaterally, PWO. I also started my first PCT two weeks ago and have been feeling like ****. I think the IGF is helping with my mood, but damn does it make me tired. I try to take naps whenever possible, even at work. Haven't noticed any stiffness or achiness in my fingers or knuckles, but it may take a higher dosage for these sides to appear. I have noticed my skin getting a little clearer and the wrinkles around my eyes don't seem so pronounced. Vascularity is up a bit. I was hoping IGF would be a huge appetite booster, but so far I haven't been that hungry. Pumps seem to fade away after 12 hours or so. I worked my bi's last night and shot them immediately after. The feeling has mostly disappeared now.
I don't mind shooting myself up, I just hate having to reuse the same needle I've just drawn the IGF and then the NaCL with. The needle is freakin dull after that. The only way around this I've found is to draw both in the same syringe and then empty it into a clean capless vial. That way I can suck it up with a fresh needle and then inject. I'm using 29g, 1/2in, 1ml syringes. Would it be better to use a larger longer needle for IM? I would hate to bust out the 22g again, but will if the shot would be more effective.
On a side note, I got my IGF from a reliable research chemical company. It came in powder form so I'm pretty confident as to the quality.

Pinned 50mcg bi laterally into biceps tonight. Eating some oats and sipping on protein right now. So far I havent noticed any sides like lethargy or numbness. But this is the only the third day using it sooo I'll keep updating.
I still think getting 50mcg out of a 100mcg bottle is a pain. My bi's do feel nice and full today

I did heavy squats tonight and then pinned 25mcg in each quad. Legs feel like jello, so maybe I overdid it. I just ate a big meal of complex carbs, protein, and fiber, and I'm almost nodding off now. IGF makes me soooo tired. But feel GOOD.
There's been a huge increase in libido, but I'm currently pinning hCG (500iu ED) for PCT so this probably accounts for a lot of the extra wood lately.

I'm wondering what it will be like to come off of IGF? Am I going to feel awful or will it not be that noticeable? Also, will my body's own natural production of IGF be lowered for awhile?

Okay I pinned quads (or tried to again) pwo. I still have a huge bruise from hitting a vein last week on my right quad. Soo today I again hit a nerve in my right quad. Made my leg kick and just sent chills up and down me. Finaly was to pin my right quad.
Moved over to my left quad....hit a nerve on my left side! Got mad and threw the pin out. I am pretty sure I am done pinning quads. I can only imagine pinning with a larger gauge needle.
I will probably switch to glutes to work on my apple bottom, lol.

I am up about 5lbs over the last couple weeks but I am bulking. I dont believe I am putting on to much fat which may be from the IGF.

i was gonna pin my quads with test cyp (25g 1")... but your bad luck is making me reconsider
did you go in slowly when you hit the nerves? and was it the outer head of the quad that you were shooting for?
it makes me cringe thinking about hitting a nerve....
07-24-2007, 11:57 PM
It reminds me a bit of getting a tooth pulled and the doc hits a nerve or whatever. Except its in your leg.

ok first thing.....i hope your only shooting IMIDIATELY post workout.......second your dose is too high,30mg bi lat for a beginer....max 3 times a week(only on workout days),this stuff is no joke..you shoot too much you will have a coleman gut....
The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety.-Psalm 18:2

I think anytime you use something like this (or even supplements for that matter) there are inherent risks that you have to accept as part of the game. And no I am not accepting IGF gut as a side. Based on my research I am comfortable with my current dosing.

i actually just tried it today... i attached a pic of where i injected (COMPLETELY painless, and its not in the least bit sore... yet).
i definitely recommend it.... heres a diagram link: http://www.ino.ie/_INO/images/IMInj_Ventrogluteal.jpg
and we were talking about test, not IGF (i know this is an IGF thread, so sorry for going off topic and causing confusion). i definitely wouldnt shoot IGF into the bum... dont want to walk around looking like i have a stick shoved up there
07-26-2007, 07:17 PM
Yeah, but you're not supposed to shoot it in the maximus.
