Folks - Has anyone ever experienced bruising from GH injection in the belly area?? Got 2 decent bruises at injection sites. Its not painful, just black/blue. Using 29G 1/2" insulin pins. Should I try 31G 5/16" perhaps? Thoughts?

It happens, you might be pressing down on the slin pin with too much force. I prefer doing IM injections, rarely experience bruising from a slin pin that way although I still get them occasionally when I go too fast.

Also if you’re taking nsaids like ibuprofen and then taking doing a shot that will lead to bruising more easily.

Maybe 1 in 15 subq injections I get a visible bruise. Needle size doesn't really matter.

I've had it happen with the 29g 1/2" slin pins as well. Par for the course I suppose

Size of the slin pin doesn't really matter. If you're getting a bruise it's because your hitting a vein. Not sure how to avoid this as you can't see a small vein under the skin. At least I can't.
