Previously i was doing Testosterone Cyp intramuscular thigh injections every 3 days. Then i started noticing a bad cough the next day. It happened a few times. So then i decided to change the brands and got testosterone cyp thats made by watson and started doing sub-q injections every 3 days.
Everything was good until today. today i tried to do my sub-q injection and i was having trouble inserting the needle in my stomach, like it just wouldnt go in and it would hurt a lot if i tried to push it in more. so then i got a fresh needle and tried again on the other side and it was hurting also but i managed to get the needle inside and aspirated then started injecting it then i felt a weird burning sensation and pain so i stopped and pulled out the needle. Then i tried it again once more with a fresh needle on the other side and when i aspirated i seen blood in the syringe so i pulled it out.
does this mean by body cannot handle injections anymore?
I have been doing sub-q hcg injections for a year also in the stomach. Maybe i have too many holes in my stomach that might be causing this problem?
And if i go back to the intramuscular injections in the thighs, im scared that i might start getting the bad cough again. i was doing the intramuscular injections in the past for 5 months and had no issues. but i think that maybe i poked too many holes into my body and i probably have bloody muscles and some of the testosterone might be getting into my blood stream that was causing the cough?
im really confused on what i should do.
im thinking my options are:
1. try sub-q again (bad idea?)
2. give intramuscular injections another try and do glute and thigh injections. (probably will need to just do them once a week, since i wouldn't want to be poking more holes)
3. try a testosterone gel or cream
4. quit trt
im going to talk to my doctor about this but im hoping maybe i can get some feedback from you guys on what you think about all this.
