    Testosterone Injection Problems


    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.

    Thanks

    bro, why don't you just do delts of tri injections? that's what I do.....
    I use a 25 or 26 for those injections, 26 takes forever, but get's the job done... and you won't feel a thing...
    How many mg are you injecting a week?

    i think the cough is worth it lol.

    sub q test never heard but i was pinning 3 subq injections a day at one point in my stomach.

    just pin in your glutes, thats like the only place i inject now. legs are fine delts i dont like but glutes are easy. Give that whirl

    For TRT, using the glutes and doing it once a week and alternating sides should be fine. The issue you had subq isn't entirely odd, i've had the same happen at times. Honestly the odds of the cough being related to the injections are moderately slim.

    As mention previously try going into the delt with 1/2 inch pin. My self and many other do this with ease and less pain with no change in e2.

    I know of several guys (and myself) that do 2 to 3 inj per week with a 29G 1/2" needle in the delt or thigh. Works great and hardly feel it. It takes longer to load the syringe, but if you hold the syringe in your hand to warm it up before you inject it doesn't take long to inject at all.
