how to inject steroids the sites
If the gluteal region cannot be injected for some reason, the second choice would be the lateral portion of the thigh. Usually, intramuscular injections in the thigh are only indicated for infants and children. The vastus lateralis muscle is the only area of the thigh that should be injected intramuscularly. This site is determined by using the knee and the greater trochanter of the femur as landmarks. The greater trochanter is the bony area that you can feel where the femur joins the pelvic girdle. The mid portion of the muscle is located by measuring the handbreadth above the knee and the handbreadth below the greater trochanter. Injecting into the front of the thigh or inside of the thigh is extremely unwise. These areas contain nerves as well as a number of blood vessels.

Steroid Injections – Phase 1:
First, you´ll need to draw the steroid out of the vial, with a syringe. The most common size for injecting anabolic steroids is a 23-25ga. X 1-1.5″ needle. This size will work for all water based and oil based injectable steroids. The first thing you need to do is make sure you are using a clean, unused needle. Next, make sure the top of the vial is clean, and swab it with an alcohol pad.

(In-order to draw the liquid out of the vial, you´ll first want to pull some air into the syringe, usually the same amount as you will be drawing in for your injection if not a little more. Next, you want to hold the vial upside down and inject the air into the vial. This will increase pressure inside the vial and allow the liquid to be drawn into the syringe more easily. Once you´ve done this, and while you´re still holding the vial upside down, you need to make sure the tip of the needle is below the level of the liquid, begin to slowly pull back on the plunger and drawl the desired amount of liquid into the syringe.From here, you have the option of replacing the needle that breached the rubber stopper of the vial with a fresh needle. This is because even one pass through the rubber of a vial will blunt the tip of a needle; even if this is not visible to the naked eye, it´s still got the potential to cause additional discomfort when you inject. In many cases, it’s not uncommon for the individual to use a large drawl needle for all his steroid injections; drawl needles are often 20ga-22ga in size and will make the entire process a lot smoother.)

Steroid Injections – Phase 2:
Test 600xOnce your solution is inside the syringe, choose the area you wish to inject and clean it with a new and never before used alcohol swab. As the area is now disinfected, directly into the center of the desired injected area simply force the needle in, it won’t take much and prepare to inject. With the needle all the way in, before you inject the solution, draw back the plunger of the syringe few tenths; if any blood comes into the syringe you will need to remove it immediately and find a new spot to inject. You very well may only need to move over an inch or so or you can find a new spot and start the procedure again. Once you have found a suitable area, and this will get much easier with time, simply inject the solution, but you’re not quite done yet.

Steroid Injections – Phase 3:
With all of your steroid injections, once the solution is completely administered leave the needle in for a good 15 or so seconds and allow the steroid to settle. At this point, remove the needle and immediately place a clean, never before used cotton ball on the injected site and apply pressure and hold for approximately 20-30 seconds. At this point, you’ll remove the cotton ball and you very well may find blood on it; don’t freak out; remember, you’ve just pierced your skin. Throw the cotton ball away, and then with a little pressure massage the injected area; this will help with any potential soreness; it’s not an absolutely necessity but it can help.
