Title: Best Syringes For Frequent, Low Dose
Post by: MidlifeSquatBench on May 25, 2016, 12:03:40 am
I'm new to this and having a hell of a time drawing out the exact right amount when I'm trying to get 0.15 ml into a 3 cc syringe. Should I just ask for 'slin pins?

Does anyone else have this kind of trouble, or am I an idiot?

Yes, that's a tough one, trying to fit five times the volume of the syringe into the syringe.

But I assume you mean 1.5 ml? What is the hard part? What gauge is the needle?

Or do you mean 0.15ml. This would be equivalent to 30mg T-Cyp or 150 or 300 IU HCG (depending how you mix it).  These days I get syringes and swabs here:

and use something like this for both T and HCG. $12 for 100.

Whoops. That is exactly what I meant. It's 1 and a half of the small markers. Very hard to see if I'm exactly halfway between them.

And thank you for the links!!!!

Ok, I looked at his previous posts. It is 0.15 ml, since he's injecting 30 mg cyp EOD. If that's the case then it should be a 0.3 cc insulin syringe w/29-31 gauge needle, easily filled halfway. A 3 cc syringe would make things difficult.

You ain't lyin'.

I edited my post. You were right the first time; I got it wrong by a factor of 1/100.

Just placed an order for 29-gauge, 1/2", 3/10 cc syringes. Paying about a quarter what I did for my first purchase of the too-big syringes+needles I got elsewhere (shipping included) that I got elsewhere. Thank you so much. This site has easily been the most helpful site on everything TRT that I've seen.

I always use 1 or .3 cc.

I think it would be cool if they made a dial up pen like they do for insulin.

Just tried my first 0.33 cc 29-gauge insulin pin. It was night and day difference for the 3 cc, so much better that I'm embarrassed I didn't know enough to get these the first time around. The T-cyp flowed so smoothly with only the tiniest bit of an air bubble that was easily pushed out. I can easily do ED with this gauge without "injection" fatigue. And now I know for a fact that I got exactly 0.1 cc. Thanks again so much for clearing this up and providing a link!

G'Day Y'All !

Here in Florida, I found WalGreen's pharmacy as an excellent and economical source of .3 mL or
300 IU insulin syringes with 31 gauge needles. These are 1 time use, insulin syringes.

Price is $17.00 and tax for box of 100 syringes. They are boxed as 10 sealed plastic bags of 10 each
syringes with needles.

You will fill out a paper log at the pharmacy, they want to know the drug and prescriber.

I use these for my SQ daily hCG injections into my tummy. No problems at all.

I don't know if these will work with the thicker oil-based drugs. YMMV.

Cheers !! Sam D.
