Alright, after my first post, which you probably didn't read unless you had some pain with the Stealth products, I ask everyone this.

Do you massage after injection or not?

I have done some research, and there are plenty of people out there that say if you massage the area you inject, you risk pushing the oil back into the subcutaneous area, and that is where the red and soreness comes from. Granted, I think you will get a bit sore from injections anyway, but not the pain that I got. I REALLY massaged my delt after injection too... rubbing my delt against the wall - Back and Forth.

Input would be appreciated.

I dunno about the subcutaneous thing.

I don't massage the spot after the injection, reason being that I find that if I massage the area it takes longer to heal - or longer for the pain to subside. I do put some pressure directly on the spot using my thumb.

My theory is that by massaging the area you cause more trauma to the muscle fibres that are being separated by whatever substance you're using and this causes more blood and fluids into the site to help it heal thus causing more swelling and pain

Hope that makes sense - it's only my opinion though, you'll find out what works best for you by experimenting!

I should say, in terms of the subcutaneous thing, that I use my thumb to apply pressure to the site in the hope that the fluid is pushed outward/away from where it was placed into the muscle (I hope it works anyway).

Also, if fluid did move into the subcutaneous area, one would think that the needle wasn't deep enough in the muscle when the injection took place

No do not message. You just make it harder for your body to absorb.

i dont massage, but i flex the muscle a couple times after the inject. i dont like the idea of having a pool of liquid in my muscle for a long time and i think flexing it disperses it throughout the muscle. just my theory

no pushin', no rubbin', no touchin, no fuck all...sometimes redness, some times not. unbearable pain - never. My left delts are easier for me to inject, I am right handed.....so the right side cops it less often than the left...:D it's good, always good.

Bump.

I find that I have been healing on average about 1-2 days quicker w/o massaging. And the soreness is much milder.

NEVER MASSAGE AN INJECTION SITE!!!

That is the dumbest thing you can do, it causes swelling and incredible pain the following days.

I used to massage after SuperTest injections, and I would wake up and my entire ass would be so sore I could not sit down or walk.

I used to massage but switched to shooting muscles that I was working that day in the gym. Shoot about an hour or two before I train. I think the increased oxygenation and circulation to the muscle definitely helps.

No , the massive cocks in the ass never really bothered me:eek::p, it was the massaging injection sites that hurt.

Fucker.

And yes, It really will make a night and day difference in your pain levels if you dont massage.

I used to massage the injection site years ago, then someone told me to try not massaging, and it's a major difference. No massaging for me, MUCH less pain without it.

Don't rub it, it will only get worse. Use an Ice pack if it hurts that much. Use Advil or tylenol for pain too. Don't be a baby......

there are lots of other things you could rub... dont make your inj site one of them.....
