Am I Injecting right?

Hello everyone.
So I on cycle right now and something strange happened to me a couple of times. When I insert the needle (I pin the ventroglutes) and aspirate it only tiny air bubbles come out. But as soon as I inject the test and pull the needle after a few secs, blood runs for a couple of seconds. Do I hit a vein? It never happened to me before.
Thanks in advance!

When the bubbles come out that's good, that means you aren't injecting into a vein. When you pull out and there's blood, it just means you've passed through a vein with your needle, but you haven't injected into it. It happens all the time, so nothing to be concerned about. Just clean it with some alcohol and you'll be golden.

Here are some other places you can inject besides the butt as you want to be rotating injecting sites regularly.

Oh! Thanks a lot man! I got scared i injected into a vein, although i didn't start coughing. Im a little paranoid about having an embolsim due to the oil being in the veins. I have seen the site, I'm about to start injecting into the traps as well, although im a bit scared to do so. Quads are off limits cause im hitting legs twice a week (Running Sheiko programs).

I'd have to agree with the post above.With delts you have six spots to choose so if you're running common (10-14 week slow ester)cycles you can uses your delts the whole time or rotate between that and glutes..

And you won't feel like a dam human pretzel trying to hit your glutes

Are the traps a good spot to pin? I normally use vg's with a 1/2 needle.
I do delts once in a while, but a few times, I've nicked a nerve inserting and it makes my whole arm jump. Lol

The thing with delts is that I have a baseless fear I'll hit a tendon or bone or something, even though I know it's almost impossible. I'll be using the shorter needles (22G 1 in). Maybe I'll try having a friend pin me

25g 1 inch right smack in the middle of your side delt. Grab your side delt between index finger and thumb so you can see where the meat of it is, pin the centre of that mass which will be a high point if you get what i mean. Other than aching for few days sometimes worse than others ive never hit a nerve, never bled excessively, i honestly dont wanna pin anywhere else now.

I tend to aim more towards the rear delts(painless) sometimes it's so easy if it wasn't for an empty syringe I would have doubts of the actual injection..

Don’t pin the traps man....delts are easy. I started in my glutes, then went to quads. Quads get sore sometimes. Delts are painless.

I like delts and glutes.

blood is pretty common, exactly as @StarScream66 said you just nicked on the way in. Probably 50% of the time I get that in glutes. Less in delts (although I have nicked a nerve a couple of times).

A nerve? Damn. Also each time I inject theres a small lump at the injection spot that stays for a couple of days, I had it on previous cycles too. It goes a way even faster when I massage the injection area

yeah I like to get a massage gun on any injection spot straight after to try and avoid lumps/break down scar tissue. Apparently (heard on a podcast) warm water (in the shower) blasted onto an injection spot straight after can help?

I do massage the injection spot and it helps. Also most of the times do it after the gym, so I rub alcohol on the spot, inject and then some more alcohol and straight to the shower with hot water, and it helps as well.

I pinned delts once, 1 ml test propionate. Never more.
The thing with delts though, is that I remember as a child most of my vaccinations were done IM on the delts, upper middle portion of my arms, and they never hurt at all. I'm still sceptical about giving them a try though
