I think I'll try it tomorrow with 30mg. Will injecting sub-q twice a week work? Or should I do it more frequently? I have 25g x 5/8" needles, but that would pierce into my abs if I put it all the way in. Could I inject my abdominal area sideways instead of straight in?

I inject subQ into the vastus lateralus (outer thigh) area. Nearly painless at 0.3mL biweekly.

There is some research indicating less aromatization with subQ (wish I had the link). Also, the studies have shown it is just as effective as IM injection as far as test levels are concerned.
Evidence based practice shows that subQ injections are much safer and less painful than IM. I will have to try IM to get a baseline of comparison but the ease of subQ can't be matched.
Does anyone have any direct lab comparisons of IM to subQ?

I just use my 25g needles and go about 1/2 way in and have always done it this way. My tests have always been great and it doesn't hurt at all.

I don't pinch skin, I just go at a 45 into my glute and do 50mg. I never have any oil leak and never see a trace of blood.

Sex drive: 3-4
Sex drive: 7 (I have young kids, a crazy busy schedule, stressful career, and little free time. I wouldn't want it higher than this. lol)
I never noticed a difference in IM to sub-q, but wouldn't remember it likely because I have been doing sub-q for over a year. The main difference was going from 125 ew to 50e3.5d.

People are turning something simple into the something so complicated. I use 29 gauge 1/2 in my thigh or shoulder 2 times a week. It is what it is... 5 weeks get retested. Seriously, I have better things think about then how to manipulate a simple injection..LOL
Solution to problem KISS .....

Did my first sub-q injection this morning, about 3" from my navel. 50mg, went in fast and smooth at 45 degree angle with no bleeding. How many weeks should I do this before getting blood tested?

I've done sub q injections every two or three day for about six months. I use a 5/16" 31g insulin syringe and inject into the butt. This week I switched back to IM to see if I notice any difference in how I feel.

Feeling better tonight! What I've noticed so far:
- no anxiety
- much less fatigue after injection
- scrotum isn't super tight, balls are finally hanging once in a while
- more strength/energy in the gym
- Zero irritability, better drive
Can't wait to get my blood checked in 6 weeks to see what the difference is!

On another forum a bunch of guys were reporting that their test levels had fallen after switching to sub q. They had blood tests to support their claims.
