This video revisits the use of insulin syringes for Testosterone injections. How to do it, why it’s better, and the issues you might face. Honestly, I wouldn’t inject any other way.
I made a video about this subject before but I wanted to bring this topic back to the forefront for a couple of reasons.
1. I wanted to update you on my progress, and
2. Almost every time someone tries this injection method we are going to talk about today, they love it.
So, let’s talk about injections for a second unless you have something seriously wrong with you, injections aren’t fun. In fact, they are just a necessary evil. We like the result the injection facilitates but we don’t enjoy the process itself. It only stands to reason that if we make this whole injection ordeal easier, faster, and less painful, we have a winner. Personally, the only thing I use a one and a half-inch- needle for is to reconstitute powders. I use an insulin needle for all of my injections HGH, HCG, peptides, and yes even testosterone. In fact, I haven’t stuck myself with anything larger than an insulin syringe for about eight months now, or longer. Honestly, I don’t know why anybody would.
Before we continue, let’s get the formalities out of the way. I am NOT a doctor. I don’t pretend to be a doctor. If your physician contradicts what I’m saying, listen to them don’t listen to me. Formalities finished.
We all know HGH, HCG, peptides – all that stuff is injected with insulin needles anyway usually subcutaneously, which means right under the skin. The opposite of that would be inner muscular which means into the muscle. This is where that one and a half-inch needle that I said I never use – well that’s when it usually gets used. Most people use it to inject testosterone but I’m here to tell you in my opinion better results can be obtained by injecting testosterone with an insulin syringe. I’m not talking about subcutaneous testosterone injections – I don’t like those. The problem is the oil doesn’t dissipate before the next injection so after a couple of months I started having these little pools of oil under my skin that took forever to go away. , I look at the half-inch into insulin needle and I’m like hey, why couldn’t this be used for intramuscular injections? It seems to be long enough. The obvious problem with testosterone and an insulin syringe is getting it into the syringe. Testosterone is viscous, which means it’s thick. If you try to draw it into an insulin syringe with the conventional method you’re gonna be there forever so what I do instead is called backfilling.
So here’s the backfill method:
What I do is I take a syringe – that one and a half-inch syringe. I take my solution and I draw it out into the syringe – may be about one and a half cc’s to two cc’s. I keep this sitting around for a while… I then take my insulin needle. I take off the top cap in the back cap, obviously. I pull the plunger that’s where the backfill comes in. I have the plunger out so I hold the plunger, I take my syringe here, and I put it into the back of the insulin syringe, backfill it. I get it up to low that I want it to be then I cap my one and a half inch harpoon and I put that away for tomorrow. I then take the insulin syringe – I barely put the plunger onto the top, I don’t push it, I just put it on there just to keep it the liquid from falling out. I’ll get the liquid cut down all the way down to the bottom and at that point in time I can push the plunger in and get it up to the regular dose. Now I have testosterone inside of an insulin syringe and I didn’t spend an hour and a half trying to pull it out through the conventional method. that my friends is the backfill method. Another thing about this is this needle on this insulin syringe will never be any sharper if you want a sharp needle. I haven’t stuck this in anything. I haven’t stuck this into the vial – the rubber stopper – to get it out. I haven’t done anything. This is as sharp as this needle will ever be so that’s another benefit. I inject testosterone every day. I use four different injections regions. I use my two shoulders and my pecs, and I rotate between these. One day my left shoulder then my left PEC my right PEC and so on. I use a 1/2 inch needle on an insulin syringe and that’s more than enough to get into the muscle. I take my 1 cc of testosterone, which is the number 100 on an insulin syringe. I divide that by 7 which is a number of days in a week and that comes out to 14.2 so every morning when I wake up I hit the start button on the Keurig and while it’s warming up I back fill my insulin syringe to just slightly above that 14 mark and then I do my injection.
The obvious question is why would I use an insulin syringe to inject every day. It’s because I don’t want to use an insulin syringe to inject half a CC of oil into my muscle. Logically, that seems to be a bit too much oil for that depth but a little over a tenth of the syringe full – the muscle can certainly handle that. The next question would be what are the benefits.
First, there’s far less anxiety from an insulin injection I mean let me say this if you don’t cringe a little when you think about plunging a one-and-a-half-inch needle into your thigh there’s something wrong with you but a tiny insulin needle that’s not intimidating.
Second, it’s far less painful. You don’t have to worry about hitting a nerve or piercing an artery. Many times I don’t even feel it.
Third, the injection sites are easily accessible even old guys – we can see our shoulders and our pecs. We don’t have to wear our cheaters for that.
Fourth, and probably the most important, I don’t think my testosterone levels could be any more stable. I would even argue that I convert far less testosterone into estrogen because I don’t have that surge I get from weekly or twice a week injections.
By reducing the conversion of estrogen, there’s more testosterone available for my body to use which is kind of the objective here. Because of the decrease in aromatization, I used less and Anastrozole to keep estrogen levels under control.
Let’s talk about the drawbacks and issues – there are none. I’ve been doing this for eight months and I don’t feel any scar tissue, it’s not painful, it keeps my levels stable, I take far less medicine, and I get better results. I don’t have to keep track of what days are my injection days – it’s every day.
So to recap – why would you ever stick a one-and-a-half-inch needle into your body ever again.
