    Injecting with the same needle used to draw from?


    Is it okay if I draw from the vial with a 23 gauge 1 inch needle and use It to pin myself? I know a lot of people say the needle will be dull and it will hurt more? I understand if I was drawing from 2 or 3 different compounds but is it okay from just 1 vial?
    Thanks in advance

    It's fine. I have 23's to draw and 25's to inject tho.

    You should get some 25's and do the same. Gpz has all you need for cheap.

    No issue as long as you don't break sterility. I draw with 18 and shoot 25. Seen people draw and shoot the same, barely dulls it to be honest. I've done an 18 to draw and shot with the same in the delt, that hurt.

    test-e 500mg/week. Did 250mg today just under a CC. My vials are 300mg/ml. I also didn't change the needle and I stuck the vial twice because I didn't get enough the first time. Don't be scared.

    Glad it didn't hurt. I just hear stories of infection when pinning with the same needle used to draw from. But I should be fine

    I looked for them but couldnt find them. Somewhere on the web are pics of hypo's taken with a microscope before being used and after being used once through a rubber stopper. I wont use one after it's been through a stopper again. Draw with one, use the other

    It just depends if you're gonna do a cycle or 2 and quit, or if you're gonna run a couple a yr. The worse the needle is, the more scar tissue that you create. Scar tissue hurst a little more.

    From a medical standpoint you should clean the stopper each time with alcohol. this eliminates some potential contaminates. Changing the needle would be preferred but not completely necessary as long as you clean injection site also, we do it all the time and it doesnt dull it. The only time to really switch needles is if you are drawing from glass break aways make sure you draw with a filtered needle and then switch to a regular hypo.

    One reason would be because needles are sometimes frustrating to get. Walking into the pharmacy is a pain. And they take down info sometimes which also makes it frustrating

    Pins are rather easy to find online, either that or find a cute nurse and bang her then have her get you some.

    It is fine to use the same one but I find it dulls just a little bit pushing it through that rubber stopper. Also I always use a bigger needle to draw out the oil, so that in itself causes me to switch pins.

    Here is one picture with the needle after 1 use and 6 uses. Personally i would just switch. Pinz are cheap enough.

    I asked this in another thread but never ended up getting an answer. Can you use a 25g 1 inch for glutes? Or do you need 1.5 inch for glutes?

    If you're lean enough and don't have a fat ass, 1" will work fine. I would use 23g though. I prefer 23g 1" and usually pin quads.
