    Injection tips

    what are some tips to prevent bleeding after an injection?

    i did an injection in my ventro glute and when i pulled the needle out blood came running down my leg

    it was a good amount of blood but stopped soon as i wiped it

    this never happened before and am trying to figure out why and how to prevent this in the future...

    Were you standing? If so that is why.

    I would lie down face first on a couch or bed and reach back and perform your shot. It's much easier that way.

    Also when you clean the area, you use a wipe with alcohol right? Let that sit right on your ass below the injection site. As soon as you remove the Syringe push the tissue w alcohol right onto the site and apply pressure.

    This limits bleeding and it spilling onto precious blankets, rugs, etc.

    That was a little bleeder wait until you get a squirter bro! The first time I was like a dog chasing my tail. Looked like a murder seen. it's always good for blood letting when your running gear anyway.

    BTW Glutes are the only spots I have ever had gushers. Never anywhere else.

    If you don't want to bleed.. don't poke yourself with a needle.

    yeah i was standing but i did on my other side standing with no issues

    i dont think i can do it laying down bro lol and yeah i always use alcohol wipes before and after

    would a longer needle help prevent this? im currently using an 1 inch but would a 1 1/2 needle be better for deeper injections to prevent leakage...?

    is that the same as z track technique?

    cause i actually did that and blood still came out....

    i might of not held the skin hard enough this time or tight glute muscles maybe?

    i did heavy deadlifts the day before and my glutes always get hit hard with that movement

    I think it depends how big the tip is and where you inject

    Could be the needle gauge. What size gauge needle is it? I have been using 30g 1/2Ē with no issues. Also I leave my needle in for 10 sec after I am done injecting and then apply pressure with cotton pad while massaging the spot. Could help.

    I use 5/8 with VG... sometimes you get a little blood.

    I find my VG standing up right, put my finger on the spot Iím injecting, then sit down and relax my leg and inject the spot I had put my finger on. Seems to work so far.

    VG and glutes are all Iíve ever pinned... thinking about moving into delt injections but seems like a bitch to do by myself and there are some nerves up there that ya gotta be well aware of.

    Quad injections are on my bucket list as well as Sub-Q.

    I know you are aware of the Z Track Method but this site may be a good review:
    https://www.verywellhealth.com/z-tra...ection-4587589

    In the air-lock technique (3), a small amount of air is drawn up into the syringe along with the medication, the skin is stretched flat between two fingers and held taut, needle is plunged in at a right angle, injection includes medication followed by air, needle is withdrawn and taut skin is released.
    https://tirumalaikamala.wordpress.co...lar-injection/

    I rarely inject my glutes as, my handicap prevents me from injecting with my left hand. So I do Quads up to 4 cc and delts 2 cc.

    You can't strengthen the weak by weakening the strong

    probably you use the same needle you use to take from vial ? never do that, use 25g or less kind of needles and 1" is enough for all muscles . You gor blood because you hit a vessel , so try to shoot on muscles that are safe with less veins like shoulders , glutes .
