    Just took my first ever injection of Test. A couple questions


    I got it through a friend but I'm questioning if the gear is legit or not. I never inject stuff so I watched a bunch of youtube videos and read a couple articles to make sure I did it the right way. Every video I watched mentioned that Test is usually thick and a smaller needle takes forever to draw it out of the bottle. I only had one size of needle so I drew and inejcted with the same G needle (23 G). The test seemed to draw very easily and I immediately felt suspicious, but I dont really have anything to compare it to. Any way I can verify if the gear is real or not without freezing it and checking for crystals (something I read to do when I was googling it)?

    My other question: When I injected it (into my quad) I forgot to pull it back to make sure I didnt hit a blood vessel, due to nervousness. Did i goof?

    Thanks a lot guys

    It's not hard to draw out unless you're using a super high guage pin. Lots of guys draw with like an 18 or 20 guage then pin with 25 or so. The smaller the pin the longer it will take. Some compounds are a bit thicker than others, but test e/cyp are pretty smooth. 23g should go in easily and expel a ml of test in about 10 seconds or so. Remember to use 1 pin for drawing, then change to a new pin to inject. Makes it a lot easier since the original pin will dull from going through the rubber stopper. Not to mention it's much more sanitary, and cleanliness is a major point to consider when injecting. STERALIZE EVERYTHING!

    If you didn't aspirate, it's not the end of the world... just remember from now on. You don't want to inject in to a vessel. I hope you plan on rotating sites... you should be fluent in at least 3.

    You weren't planning on rotating sites...? So you admit to not doing enough research. Got it.

    Rotating sites so as not to collapse blood vessels and cause muscle damage and skin damage is pretty basic.

    I'm not trying to be a dick. AAS is serious business, and i think people can take it too lightly.

    Proprionate is thin and would easily go through a 23g but not like water.

    You can smell it or taste it, but you should feel it within 24hours.

    You don’t say what type you have but from my experience, cypionate in a 21g needle takes less than 10 seconds to inject a ml, and drawing with a 18g is very quick. Needles are cheap, get extras to draw with to keep the one you'll inject with sharp. I've started 25g to inject and don’t really see a difference in time to inject, but I also didn’t really feel a difference in the stick either. Smaller needle however should be less damage as stated above.
    (FWIW, I don’t usually see many adults using LOL in postings; it's mostly kids masquerading as older people.)
