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.

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.

Pin size doesnt matter, just put the subq inj into you leg near the inside of your knee. Pull the skin out and inj and you will never have this problem again also up your VitC intake that does help w bruising believe it or not

My girl years ago would get black and blue marks after injection from the China generics, never with the American made HGH.

I did some reading on this. It's possible that you hit a vein and the bruise is the bleeding. What I read wasn't from a bodybuilding site it was from insulin users, sub q. Just a thought.

The only time I've ever bruised was injecting oil sub q in the abs area.

I always recommend 5/16” needle length for subQ.
Question: Are you using freshly reconstituted gh with non expired BAC water — using up your gh vile within 5 days? That can make a difference.
Alternatively, you can also pin (5/16 or 1/2” either is fine) in the shallow (surface) muscle tissue of your delts, or quads.
In times past, I also experienced periods of tiny bruising when continually pinning the stomach area subQ.. I quit that a couple years ago in favor of delts IM.

Thx bro - once I switched to 5/16th no issues. #knockonwood
