    Needle Size and Length for Test/Cyp IM Input.


    My new doc says I can inject myself in the gluteal muscle (butt cheek) with test/cyp with a needle as small as 21 ga and as short as 1/2 inch.
    I want to inject at home so I can give a lower dose but more often so I do not have as many peaks any valleys. My problem, I can't find that gauge in that length. I'll even go for 5/8" if I have too, all I can find is 1 inch and 1 1/2. What needles are you guys using?

    1/2" seems awfully short for the glute, i just started and am using 22g 5/8" into my quad.

    1 1/2" should do the job in the glute...

    wow, you all are using a really high gauge (large size), that crap would hurt. I've been using 25g for about a year and have no problems or pain.

    I started out on 20x1 harpoons for the first couple months, now I used 23x1. Always inject into my thighs, never had an issue with pain, only occasionally hitting a nerve causing my muscle to start jumping haha

    the past 6 weeks I've been using insulin pins the thigh with no problems.. I draw it up with a 18g and backload the insulin. I use BD 30g 1/2 inch. Keep in mind I only shoot 1/2 cc of cyp. If I had to inject a full cc I would instead us a 25g 1inch in the glutes.
