It is possible to safely and accurately administer your injectable medications in the privacy of your home. Safe injection practices protect the patient, the person giving the injection, as well as the environment. The two common types of injections administered at home are subcutaneous, which includes the administration of insulin, and intramuscular injections. If you must give yourself injections or give injections to a close friend or family member, you must first learn how to do so from the healthcare provider who is prescribing the medication to be injected.

When we perform testosterone injections we do not arbitrarily stick a needle into the muscle; there are specific points within each muscle that you want to use. Youve probably seen movies or . shows where some guy is supplementing with anabolic steroids and it shows him arbitrarily sticking a needle right into the meat of his butt and then shows him on the field as an animal; in real life that wouldnt happen as he would be temporarily paralyzed. The sciatic nerve runs through our glutes, often the area many movies portray the injection and if you hit the never youre not going to be moving for some time. Each area, each muscle has a spot that may be used and when we know the spots the process is very simple; in reality its no different than eating food its just most dont know how to do it. For example, you wouldnt take a hamburger and try to jam it into your eyeball to eat it, of course not, you know better and testosterone injections are no different.
