    injection depth


    I'm using a 27 gauge half inch needle and injecting in quads 60 mgs m,th a week hcg 250 ius s,we .5 armdex on injection days Is this deep enouigh to go. How does the absorption rate differ that much going say deeper? Would this cause a slower absorption or would I be actually wasting the testosterone?

    Great question, wish I knew the answer but I don't. However I would suggest switching from quads to glutes as I have always been told that you get the best absorption that way.

    It all gets absorbed in time. Better absorption, to me, implies faster which is not a goal in any case. For smaller dose volumes, depth does not need to be very deep. With little fat on the legs, this should be fine. Check my results below with .5" needles.

    I just got my LEF lab work. -labcorp

    98mg test cyp per week as 28mg IM EOD, (#29 .5" .5ml)
    250iu HCG SQ EOD, (#29 .5" .5ml)
    1mg/wk of anastrozole in EOD doses

    TT 1025
    FT 36.1 (3.5%)
    DHT 69
    E2 22

    DHEA-s 668 (70-310)

    Thyroid: -looks good
    TSH 1.303 (.35-5.500)
    T4 5.4 (4.5-12.0)
    T3 3.2 (2.3-12.0) would report as 320 at some labs
    Free T4 1.32 (0.61-1.76)

    Iron is high 239 (40-155), was low 3.5 years ago

    hematocrit is 46%, was 44% before TRT, so no significant change

    Anyone ever hear of TRT pushing up iron?

    Exactly right Ksman, you are one of several that I have talked to that is using those 1/2 inch needles for injects.

    A guy I spoke to about this a while back said it best - If you have so much BF on your thigh that you can't inject IM with a 1/2, you have bigger issues than absorbtion of TRT drugs that need to be addressed first anyways.
