Injection sites

Does it matter where you inject test? Does anyone know? I've read some people inject in the glutes and others inject in the quad.

I do both. My wife does the glutes and I do the quads. Rotating 4 spots makes it one injection per month in the same muscle.

So far so good.

Does it hurt injecting in the quad? Does it affect the test absorbtion?

I've been injecting twice a week with a 25G 1 inch needle.  I alternate between quads, so each quad gets one shot a week.  No pain during injection and no pain or soreness after, either.

It's been pretty much pain free. I prefer the glutes, but it's not really that much difference compared to quads. As far as I can tell, absorbtion and how I feel is not any different between the 2 sites. I also use a 25ga 1" needle... seems to be the overall favorite choice amongst self injectors.

The quads are by far the easiest to get to if doing it yourself.

I gave myself a shot in my quad this morning. My thigh is a bit sore now but the shot was almost painless.

Let us know how it feels tomorrow.  My experience has been the the "charlie horse" peaks at about 24 hours after injection and lasts about 24 to 36 hours.

Its been a couple of hours since I injected and my leg kinda hurts. Not like a charlie horse hurt... kinda hard to describe

The pain feels like after workout muscle soreness.
