You better start. I’ve been pinning for 4 years on TRT and hit a vein in my quad for the first time about two months ago.
Aspirating is out dated even nurses in hospitals dont do it any longer. In 4 years I have never done it.

Depends on exactly where you pin. Without naming the specific small muscles in the glutes and quads, it’s is recommended to still aspirate in these specific unnamed areas. Delts and the majority of the glutes and quads don’t require aspirating but you have to know exactly where you are pinning or you will hit a vein. I move around my quads and delts to keep from pinning through scar tissue. Probably not necessary and more of paranoia, but that’s why I aspirate.

Here’s a link on it.

I pin glutes, delts, and Quads

No reason to pin quads.

Am I right in saying if you Inject oil in to a vein in cause damage to your heart and even kill you? I'm sure I read about this happening to a pro BB and him nearly dying

Bro, even hospital staff dont aspirate anymore, and NO it will not kill you. You might get a metalic taste in the mouth, and smell something funny for a few minutes but that is it. I have done this for a minute now, and knicked veins, and pretty sure I was in a vein once till I pulled out and moved it a half inch. Oh and it might seize up your lungs a bit, and make you feel like your dying. But, it passes.

That's what I just started trying, but finding backfilling to be more of a pain and time consuming than just switching out the needle.
I just draw out of vial into Insulin Syringe, no back loading. Carrier Oil I use is Miglyol 840 draws very good.

I use a 2 inch 25 gauge pin in the thigh. I have thick ass legs so it's easy. I aspirate because that's what my doctor told me to do. I also bottom it out. Some days it hurts a bit and is sore a few days after and most days it doesn't hurt at all and I could punch myself in the site immediately after and not feel a thing. I'm a big pussy when it comes to pain too. You'll get better the more you pin yourself.

Btw can I use insulin needles in my delts? I got those needles from my Dr that recommend me to shoot in my stomach, I only did 2 so far but both times it been tender and a little uncomfortable after, was thinking to switch to shoulders since they never bothered me before. What you guys think, does needle size matter or should I just tough it out and continue with stomach shots?

Your stomach shots are sub q, even slin in the delts would be IM, so that's one difference.

So those needles wouldn’t work? I know delts are in the muscle but what’s the difference, you can’t do both?

edit, I read about it, I continue with sub q, thanks.

I injected my delt for the first time last week. Used a 5/8 25g needle. Didn’t feel a damn thing. I had to look closer to make sure the needle actually went in cause I felt absolutely nothing. Now it took a while longer to inject the cyp than it took with the 23g I was using in my quads, but there was virtually no pip. My quad would hurt for 3 days after an injection, so I think I’m delts only from here on out.

My first 5 or so delt injections were really bad pip. But now, like you said. I don't even know if it breaks the skin, 100% painless up to 1.5cc, I use a 25g 1in on delts

I ran out of insulin needles for Sub q injections, won’t get more until next week, but have 25g needles for IM injections, can I use that for sub q or should I just do 1 shot in my delts?
