    Injection Risks


    Hi,

    I know IM injections have their risks, but if one cleans the site well and does all of the recommened procedures for IM injection, does one have to worry about possible staph infection, tetanus, or any other bacterial or virus infection? I know it might sound like a weird question, but does this ever happen? Thanks

    if you have sterile needles and do it in a clean enviroment then you have nothing to worry about. the only way youre going to get infected is from dirty needles. if youre really worried about it by some iodine and clean the injection site before you inject the aas. and some anti bacterial cream would do great but thats only if youre ocd about it. youll be fine as long as you open the needle. inject aas. throw needle away never to be used again. just keep changing sites of the IM too. so scare tissue doesnt develop. dont inject at the same site more than twice per week.

    good advice travis.

    draw with needle, toss it, replace with new needle and inject. remember to swab vial prior to drawing and swab injection area before injecting

    not completely true.. there is always a chance of baceteria already being inside ur product.. even taking all proper precautions short of filtering your gear.. ur still taking a risk introducing a foreign substance so deep into your body..

    exactly........

    if you have HG gear and all other safety nets are in check, your almost always GTG.

    anytime you have UG gear there is that risk of contaminant.

    FYI

    Good luck, if a shot goes bad, dont let the infection get too bad b4 seeing a doc.......48-72 hours MAX.
