Anyone notice how much oil is left in the syringe after injecting? It's about 5mg, wasted every time. Instead of injecting 30mg, I'm actually injecting 25mg. Is there a solution to this?
I spray the remainder of mine out onto my hand and rub it on my inner thigh or shoulders sometimes.
good question. I've wondered the same
We're probably losing around 50mg per vial
I use a 25ga 1" so not much left in mine at all.
A nurse told me to push the oil to the end of the needle pointing downward so that some air would be left in the syringe when injecting, once you get a little pop you know all the oil is in the injection spot. I dont actually do this, but it was from a nurse.
My parents created my body, in which I create my mind. I will honor them, by developing both to their utmost potential.
After some research, I found that this is called the "air lock technique." It is only used in intramuscular injections and will not cause harm. Make sure you aspirate however, to ensure that you have not hot a vein. No blood, no problems.
I am going to do this on Friday so I will report back.
Switch to insulin syringes. The smaller you use, the less you lose.
well, I just did it. I got as much in me as I could. There was just a tiny drop left in the syringe. I'm satisfied but I think I can do even better next week? You have to keep the syringe oriented correctly to keep the air bubble behind the oil when injecting. But other than that, I have found my new technique!!
Are you honestly concerned about these miniscule amounts of oil left? A single drop?
I bet you guys use water to get that last lil bit of shampoo or soap out of bottles don't you? JK. It really is a negligible amount. Not enough to REALLY worry about
It's about 5mg lost each time (I've measured it), so yes it does bother me. Looks a lot different when you're using a 1cc syringe! Anyway, the bubble technique definitely works! The bubble pushes the oil almost to the end of the needle, so you're getting 99% of the oil. Works great! You're losing around one 50mg dose per vial if you're not doing this.
As best i can figure the volume left in my needle is 5 microliters or less. So at worst 100 microliters per bottle which is 0.1 ml. Which comes out to 20mg at worst. Best case more like 10mg per bottle.
Sure am! My vials currently are only 1ml and I shoot 1/2 ml a week. It does more good in me than in the trashOriginally Posted by kisaj
Bet ya won't notice any benefit of getting 100mg vs 97mg twice a week. The time spent worrying about it would be better spent on diet and training. IMHO
It just got testy in here....thank you, thank you. I'll be here all week.
Hahaha. That's awesome
