Testosterone Injection Site

Testosterone is the base in all steroid cycles, it’s highly important for everyone who wants to run anabolic and androgenic steroids. It’s also the only steroid I recommend to beginners for their first steroid cycle. Yet, it seems like many beginners have a hard time finding the best testosterone injection site.

I would try to offer a step by step detailed guide on how to perform a self-administration of testosterone injection. This is extremely important for anyone who wants to run steroids. As mentioned, Testosterone is the first steroid during the cycle and is important in all further cycles as well. Moreover, you can’t run oral anabolic steroids only. It’s highly important to add some injections too. So, learn how to perform a self administration of testosterone and that would be similar to administering all other injectable steroids.

Best Testosterone Injection Site?

The “best” testosterone injection site is a matter of preference. You need to find the area that is least painful and easier for you to inject. If you have a friend to help with that – great. If you don’t, then the best testosterone injection sites are large muscles. They usually are deltoids, quadriceps, or perhaps the most popular – the glut (upper back area of the thigh- butt cheeks).


Never Performed Self-Administration? Read Below

Ok, so, you might be nervous about self-administering testosterone but in reality, there’s absolutely no need to worry. A lot of people all over the world perform self injections effortlessly. As with anything – that’s a problem until you’ve done it for the first time. Lots of people say that their first injection took them 20 minutes, but later they are done in 10 seconds. Pain free and effortlessly. What you’ve got to do is to keep calm and understand that there’s actually nothing to be worried about. Then, start performing step by step.

Determine the Testosterone Ester and Concentration

Testosterone injections are coming in varying concentrations and they are having various esters. For example, there’s Testosterone Propionate that you need to inject on a daily basis or at least every other day. At the same time, there’s Sustanon (a blend of multiple testosterone esters) that I would recommend injecting every 2-3 days. And there’s also popular Testosterone Enanthate or Testosterone Cypionate that you can administer only once a week, but I would recommend twice weekly.

Therefore, it is very important to determine what type of Testosterone you have in order to determine the frequency of administration. As a reference:

Other than that, various brands and various testosterone esters offer varying testosterone concentrations. For example, Testosterone Propionate usually offers 100 mg/ml injected, but Sustanon usually offers 250 mg/ml injected. But it depends on the brand too. Some brands offer Sustanon 400 mg/ml or even 500 mg/ml. Some brands offer Testosterone Cypionate at 200 mg/ml while other brands offer the same Testosterone Cypionate but at a concentration of 300 mg/ml.

Be careful to understand and determine the correct dosages and frequencies of administration in order to avoid fluctuations. Or avoid unnecessary too frequent administration. That’s because it’s not enough to use Testosterone Propionate once a week. Your T levels would get high and low. At the same time, there’s no need to use Testosterone Cypionate every day – although you can do it, that won’t offer further benefits.


Use Correct Accessories

For performing an injection, obviously, you need a needle with a syringe, alcohol wipes as well as some Band-Aid, and/or a cotton swab. It’s essential to use a sterile, suitable needle. The same applies to the syringe. It’s very important that anything you use during a self administration of testosterone injection – it’s never been used before. Pretty much as with any given injections. Obviously, you shouldn’t use the same needle, syringe, or wipes twice.

Moreover, I recommend you to have twice as many needles as you have syringes. Use one thicker needle for drawing up the dosage out of the vial (testosterone bottle) and then change that needle with a finer one for injection. It helps reduce pains (while piercing the bottle cap, the needle might deform a little bit), risks of injections, and makes it easier to draw the testosterone. That’s since testosterone is a viscous and oily solution that might not be as easy to draw.

So, use a thicker needle, for example, 20-21 gauge for drawing up. Then use a finer one for painless injections, for example, 22-23 gauge.

In terms of syringes – it depends on the amount of testosterone you want to use. 1 ml syringes are enough in case your dosage is 1 ml or less. Of course, you’ll need bigger syringes if you plan to use more than 1 ml per injection. But They don’t really matter as long as you can draw the proper amount of solution.

Keep it Clean

Before you start doing anything at all, I highly recommend you wash your hands. And wash them carefully with antibacterial soap and enough clean water. That’s going to reduce the risk of infection. It’s vital for you to reduce the risks of infection as much as possible. Therefore, keeping your hands clean while performing an injection is very important.

Draw Testosterone

Now that you have proper knowledge about frequency and concentration as well as how to correctly use the accessories – you can start the performance. Obviously, the first thing you need to do is draw the medication from the bottle (vial).

Once you determine the exact dosage you want to use, draw the exact same dosage in your syringe. For example, if your testosterone concentration is 200 mg/ml but you want to get only 100 mg of testosterone, you will need 0.5 ml of it. Proceed to wipe the lid of the bottle with an alcohol wipe. Obviously, for the same reason of reducing infection.

But before you start drawing up your dosage from the bottle, firstly draw air into the syringe. Draw air that is equal to the volume of the dosage you plan to use. If that’s 0.5 ml, for example, draw air up to the 0.5 ml mark.

With the air inside the syringe, insert the needle through the lid and into the medication. Push down the air from the syringe into the medication by depressing the plunger. This is a very helpful step because by putting air into the bottle it would increase the air pressure inside. With increased pressure, it’s much easier to draw up the medication in the syringe. As said, testosterone is quite a viscous and thick oily solution, and sometimes is hard to draw it up. By following this step, drawing up is much easier.

Lastly, turn the bottle upside down with the syringe straight up and draw out the exact dosage of testosterone that you pre-determined.

Aspiration of the Syringe

The aspiration of the syringe is actually a very important step. You might have noticed (in hospitals or at least in movies) that doctors are keeping the syringes straight up, flick the solution and then get the air out. That’s very important with all injections. Make sure that there are no air bubbles inside the syringe. If you inject it with air bubbles, it could lead to embolism. That is a serious medical condition. So, make sure there are no air bubbles inside the syringe before you proceed to inject the testosterone solution. You do so through aspiration.

While holding the syringe up (with the needle that you plan to inject with), flick the side of the syringe. This would help get all the air bubbles to go up to the top. When all the bubbles are on the top and the solution is completely clean, slowly depress the plunger until a tiny drop of the solution comes out at the tip of the needle. Depress the plunger slowly and carefully to avoid losing too much solution.

There you are – your solution is ready for injection.

Prepare the Injection Site

Before you actually inject it, you need to prepare the injection site. Then again, for reducing the infection risks. Also, determine the injection site you want to use for administration.

Keep in mind that testosterone injections are usually intramuscular. Therefore, the needle should go directly into a muscle. Usually, large muscles are preferred spots, as said earlier. While there are other places to inject testosterone, there are 2 most popular spots. That’s because those are accessible sites for performing an intramuscular injection. They are:

  1. The deltoid (upper arm)
  2. The glut (upper area of the thigh)

They are also among the best testosterone injection sites because they allow you to avoid hitting a vein.

After you determine where you want to inject, wipe the area with a sterile alcohol pad. Make sure to wipe it all around where you want to inject to avoid infections. Alcohol on the pad is going to kill the bacteria on the skin. The bacteria are likely to get inside when piercing the skin if left unwiped.

The glute (buttocks) is perhaps the most popular testosterone injection site. Go for the top outside section of the glute. It means the top left corner or the top right corner depending on the glute you choose. That’s because this area has great accessibility to muscle tissues and they won’t allow you to hit a nerve or a blood vessel.

How to Inject Testosterone?

At first, it might be problematic. Many people have issues with it in the beginning, but that’s actually easier than it sounds. Simply hold the syringe with the solution inside like a dart above the already wiped injection site at a 90 degree angle. Plunge the syringe into the flesh and do it quickly – no need to slowly watch the needle piercing the skin. Although, make sure it pierces it at the correct angle. So, you’re almost all done.

Before you actually depress the plunger, I would recommend actually drawing the plunger back a little bit. Make sure that you’re not drawing blood because if you do – you’ve hit a vein. That’s why you need to remove the needle and do it again at a different spot. If you draw a bit and there’s no blood – start depressing the plunger at a slow and controlled pace. Fully inject the solution inside the syringe.

Tips for those who find it hard to inject it:

  • Numb the injection site prior to injection. It could be by holding ice for a minute or two or some OTC creams.
  • Focus on breathing. Don’t let anxiety get over you. You might start shaking which makes things worse.
  • Stretch the skin at the injection site. Spread the skin at the injection site to help the needle get easier.
  • Look away. Some people get anxiety simply because of looking. Try to look away when plunging and when getting it out.

Take Care of Injection Site Post Injection

Before you actually pull the needle (after fully depressing the plunger and fully injecting the solution), press around the injection site with a cotton swab. This would be helpful in preventing the emerging needle from pulling on the skin and causing unnecessary pains. Keep the cotton swab until the bleeding stops. Apply a Band-Aid if needed. Make sure the entry point of the needle isn’t left open and you don’t touch it with anything that could cause infections. If you somehow touched it – wipe with the alcohol pad.

Make sure to dispose of all the used accessories in the proper container so nobody has access to them. Make sure you won’t ever reuse them.


Make sure that you always maintain testosterone or whatever other medication at the recommended temperature, light, and dryness. Check the expiration date on the bottle. Never use it if expired and never keep it in high/low temperatures or in direct sunlight.

Tips For Reducing PIP (Post Injection Pains)

  • Shake the solution a little bit before drawing/injecting.
  • Try to heat up the loaded solution a little bit. At the room temperature or slightly above.
  • Numb the injection site with ice or lidocaine or some other similar creams after injection.
  • Although some go for subcutaneous injections – intramuscular are always the best.
  • Keep the muscles relaxed as much as possible. Best after a hot shower.
  • Massage the injection spot, both before and after injection.
