Quincy & Ken, Thank you for the great replies.
Quincy he gets the whole vial 1ml I believe that is the same as 1cc
You want the 1-1/2 inch length to reach the bottom of the vial as to not waste any precious T.
Ken Do you leave the vial upright when you draw it out? I always turn it upside down to draw out the medicine for injections. Then it doesn't require a long needle. You just pull the needle out of the vial so that only the open tip of it is through the rubber. Then you can get it all out (almost)
They didn't give me any pointers on giving the shots but I am very familiar with giving injections so it wasn't really necessary. Nice description from you by the way. One other thing I would mention if giving it in the glut is to put your weight on the other leg so the hip you are giving the injection in is completely relaxed.
Hubby said it was a little tender last night before bedtime but he can't feel where it was injected today.
He seems to be in a really good mood today (not the norm) but he said it is because he slept good last night (also not the norm)
I hope these are good signs but i'm also trying not to let this shot have a placebo effect on my observations. But he doesn't really pay much attention to how he is feeling most of the time so I would say he will have to have a total transformation to admit that it is really helping. That is just his personality though. (or maybe that is just his low T personality)
That's also why we went so long using the Axiron because he would just say it might be helping or it might not. Maybe I feel a little better, Maybe not. Turns out it was NOT.
Its hard to tell with him sometimes so I would love for him to see a noticeable change.
I know weekly would be better but we were just so excited to finally have some real T getting into the system that I didn't want to rock the boat since we are only doing the injections a couple of times anyway. Some days I just don't feel like fighting the battle so hard. But if we should have a reason to stay with injections (insurance doesn't approve Testopel or hubby doesn't like the procedure, etc.) I will fight for injections every week instead of 10 days.
