Did my first pin today
Well after months of research and a couple bumps in the road I finally did my first pin this morning. I was a bit nervous I gotta say but I didn't feel anything when I did it. It was rather simple and easy to do. We will see how the next 12 weeks go.
I heard of this one guy my source was telling me about that got so scared when he was about to pin for the first time that right when the needle went in he just passed out for like 30 minutes. hahaha anyway thanks for all your help so far in getting my first cycle started fellas.

Well I'm just running straight test as this is my first cycle. running 600 mg test e a week for 12 weeks with arimidex on cycle pct with novla/clomid combo. Was gonna grab some hcg but couldnt get ahold of any.
I pinned with a 23g 1.5 inch needle in my left glute. As of right now I'm just a little sore but nothing to bad. Thing is i actually liked being able to do it (call me crazy).
Hahaha I think more than anything my source was just trying to let me know that I shouldn't be too overconfident when it came to the first pin. I haven't really been nervous to pin cause the knowledge I have learned here in the past months about this **** has helped me so much that I'm not worried about my abilities to do things the right way. I think my source picked up on that as being overconfident.....bleh.

So it has been a couple days since injection. My ass has been pretty sore, not too bad though. This is, I have been super super hungry yesterday and today. I'm talking like eating an unbelievable amount of food. I'm over shooting my caloric goal but I'm bulking so I guess its a good thing. I'm eating really clean. Is this increase in hunger related to the test? I wouldn't assume so cause of the slow acting ester but I wasn't sure.

glad to hear to hear your first pin was smooth alot of people talk tough about self pinning but i gaurantee the majority were nervous as hell the first time they did it, myself included. but like you it was smooth and if the research is done it does build the confidence.
for myself i noticed several things help me to avoid the soreness...always 23g, delts 1 inch, glute 1.5 inch. my friend told me i2 things i disagree with. use a larger gauge which i tried once and it burned like hell. and he says only use an 1 inch on the glutes...but when i used the 1 inch i was developed absesses...and so does he.
also i pin slow and inject slow...i dont dart it in nor force it in...i just press the pin to the skin and allow it to slide in when its ready. no soreness

Sorry to thread jack, but i'm stuck between 1" and 1.5" for my glutes. Since i'll only be doing 2 shots a week, i'm just going to switch ass cheeks for the cycle.

I almost passed out my first time. I had to remove the pin and take a 20 minute break while sweating like I was in an oven. After I conquered the first shot, I was good to go from that point. I look back now and laugh at how bad it was for me.

lol I love reading posts like these. I remember my first days of pinning, the first time I was fine, and then the next few weeks I would get nervous and shake.. now every once in a while i'll have a panic attack for some random ass reason.

When I finished, I was so proud of myself....like I just aced the SATs or something. I've always been a little timid around needles, but that was just a pathetic display of being a man.

Oh man, that is absolutely hilarious! I used the wrong sized gauge my first pin; it sucked! My wife does my injections because I hate pinning my own glute. If she is out of town, I will go with the quad over the delt. I mean, I am a fully-trained Combat Medic and can stick with the best of them, but damn it man, I hate pinning my own glute!
