    Intramuscular VS Subcutaneous

    Iím old school... testosterone injections were always IM. I was shocked when the doc wanted to give me my T subcutaneously. He cited a bunch of studies and it made sense what he was saying.. that it helped eliminate the trough and stabilize T levels.

    Seems to work for me so far, not doing BW for another month so time will tell. Does anyone have experience with both ways of injections? Proís and conís?

    I've done it before, but never had my blood tested to compare, but I didn't notice any difference.

    I tried it sub-q because one brand I tried was giving me awful pip.

    I've done both & not much of a difference on the blood work. It did leave a lump of oil at the injection site that I didn't care for though.

    Seems for most guys it's about the volume. 1/2ml is no big deal but if and when a guy starts a cycle, they go I.M. I don't think it matters at all how you do it, the body will find it and use it.

    I’m doing 100mg TCyp/week in the delt... haven’t had any lumps yet, not sore enough to complain about either. I might be lucky and not be affected much by it though.

    It’s definitely absorbing though... the last 10 days or so I’ve had visits from the morning wood fairy, as opposed to once or twice a week in the last decade. Passing the boner standard so far...

    Sub Q in the delt? I guess it's possible with fat shoulders or angle the needle... idk I did them in the belly fat.

    Ive been doing TRT (125 mg) subQ these days, seems like a slow/stable release (at that dose). easy to do as well...

    This is where I’m at. TRT is sub-q while everything else is IM. Zero difference beyond the noticeable bump.

    oh TRT docs usually say sub-q in the stomach region but I just do it VG to avoid the oil buildup and having to wipe down multiple spots. No difference with that either.

    I’ve considered this since I seem to be sensitive to spikes but haven’t actually tried it yet.

    Not fat shoulders haha.. I’m not as solid as I was in my 20s so unless I’m flexing she can pinch enough to angle the needle in... it could be going IM though, hard to say.
