How to inject and stay alive??

September 24th, 2007 · 1 Comment

Yeah, its hard at the beginning.. Or should i say, it was for me. Not for my fitness buddy, who has helped me at begining of my “steroid career”.That is the solution, find somebody, that will inject instead of you :D.. But, this is the easiest way… And the most inconvenient too.. people aren’t always with you when you need them..

So, you should start injecting yourself….

How do you do that? What you should know before injecting?

Very important thing is to find the right spot where you will inject.
Well, the best place to inject is buttock. Buttock is thick, and has a lot of muscle fibers. The large surface area and the widespread blood supply to buttock makes it an ideal place to inject with better absorption. Be careful! Intramuscular injections should be given deep within the muscle and away from major nerves and blood vessels.

What do I use for injection?

It is important to choose the proper syringe. The most common syringes are a 22 gauge 1 1/2″ or 23 gauge 1″, both with a 3 cc case. This length allows for penetration to reach deep inside the muscle tissue. Shorter needles, 5/8″ or 1/2″ are usually not sufficient enough for intramuscular injections and occasionally leave a portion of the Injection in a subcutaneous area which will cause a swell between the skin and muscle as well as impaired absorption.

Be clean and be CLEAN AGAIN!!!

You don’t want to get any infection, do you?

Before handling any needles or vials, it is best that you shower thoroughly, and that you have washed your hands carefully with a good disinfectant/anti-bacterial soap.

How to do it??

Lay out your stuff as vials, needles, syringes, alcohol wipes, tissues, and any other supplies on a clean surface. Use only sterile new syringes and needles that have never been used.
Very important!! Check the expiration dates on the vials/amps.
Check to make sure you have the correct vials/amps.
Carefully disinfect the skin over the injection site with an alcohol pad.
With another alcohol pad, clean the top of the vials that you’ll be using.
Take the brand new syringe out of its wrapper, remove its plastic top, draw about 2 ccs of air into it.
Inject the air into the vial. This creates pressure within the vial and makes it easier to draw out.
Then turn the vial upside-down and slowly draw out the liquid, drawing 1/4 to 1/2 cc to much.
Tap the side of the case to help get the air bubbles that were drawn into the syringe to come to the top.
Inject the air bubbles and excess liquid back into the vial and remove the needle.
Hold the syringe needle-side-up and continue to tap it to get all the air bubbles to come to the top of the syringe.
Take another clean syringe, remove it from its sterile package and unscrew the needle from the syringe.
Exchange the brand new needle for the one that has just been injected into the stopper.

Why do that someone will ask?? Well, firstly, by using two needles for every injection, you can take advantage of using the full sharpness of the second pin. The needle does suffer some dulling, when it is pushed through the rubber stopper on a vial. Secondly, it is double protection from getting some dirt from rubber stopper. I don’t like idea to inject some rubber in my buttock. Would you?

Do not touch the needle before the injection. It should not come into contact with anything.

Swab the injection site with alcohol again.

Press the stopper of the syringe holding it needle-side-up, until the slight air bubbles that are at the top are pressed out.

Once a bead of oil has appeared at the top of the needle, allow it run down the surface of the needle. Reason for this is that needle will be lubricated.

Take the syringe and hold it like a dart, using your other hand to stretch the skin at the injection site. Gently but quickly push the sharp clean needle in the flesh.

After inserting it deep into the muscle, slightly pull back on the stopper for a few seconds to make sure it does not fill up with blood. If this happens, HOLD! It indicates that the needle has been injected into a blood vessel.

If you are sure there is no blood present in the syringe, slowly press the stopper down until all the oil is injected.
Quickly pull the needle out and take another alcohol swab and press firmly on the injection site. This will minimize bleeding, if there is any, and by firmly pressing on the injection site and slightly massaging it, some of the soreness may be eliminated. It is important that the liquid is not injected too quickly as this causes more pain at the site during the injection and in the proceeding days.
Once the injection has been given take care not to prick yourself or somebody else. Make sure that contaminated waste is disposed of safely.
And that’s it.

And some more useful advices:

Do not inject more than 2 ccs of solution per shot.
Do not use the same injection site more than twice a week.
Use a larger gauge needle to help draw out the solution from the vial quicker.
Injected slowly and massage the area afterwards to avoid discomfort after the injection.

Well, that’s about all you have to know about injecting..
