Trimix & 31 gauge needle

Postby dalton227 » Wed Nov 07, 2018 3:07 pm

New guy here and I've been using the 30 gauge 1/2 needle for a while now but lately its been hurting like hell so my doctor called me in some 31 gauge, 1ml, 6mm BP insulin needles and I'm starting to compare the two wondering if the 31 is even long enough. I mean sure I see where guys are using it but I have to wonder if sometimes do you miss because of the length. If not please give me any tips you have because I just got mine today and haven't used them yet.

Another thing is I see there's basiclly one way to load the insulin syringe and thats by injecting into the stopper. Curious how much that dulls the tip for the actual injection?

Any feedback would be great. Trimix and testosteron have definitley help change my life. lol

Hi,

Unfortunately I can't imagine there would be a huge difference in pain associated with the needle stick between a 30 and 31 gauge. Is the pain actually associated with inserting the needle as opposed to injecting the meds?

I use the 31 gauge needles whch I like. However I don't think 6mm needles will be long enough. Most guys use 12mm (1/2") long needles. I use the 8mm (5/16) long needles. With those I have to insert the full length of the needle and then some, depressing the plastic nose into my flesh so that it indents my dick. I can't imagine using 6mm long needles. I think somebody made a mistake. I'd take them back and ask for 8mm long needles. Unless you actually saw the script I'd bet the pharmacy made a mistake.

I'm not sure I understand your stopper question but my meds come in a vial with a rubber stopper covered by thick metal foil. I remove the foil and stick the needle through the rubber stopper as is instructed. I have no issues doing that.

How much volume are you injecting? I find injecting easier using lower volume syringes. I use 3/10 cc (30 unit U-100) syringes. Of course you need syringes that will hold the volume you inject.

Thanks I've got to check with the pharmacy about these needles. I thought it seemed kind of small so I'm glad I asked.

I use the BD brand 31 gauge 5/16" syringes and they are a lot better then the generic syringes I got with my initial Trimix script. I bury the needle all the way in. The generic ones I had before seemed to be dull or not as sharp causing more pain at the injection site. Different injection sites seem to vary with how easy the needle goes in as well for me. The right side of my dick at about mid shaft seems to be the toughest to poke while closer to the base and the left side of my dick the needle seems to penetrate easier. I'm right handed as well.

I used the 5/16, 31 gauge syringe for a while, but did occasionally encounter a miss or a bent needle so I went back to the 30 gauge, 1/2 inch needle. I really didn’t feel that much of a difference. Someone gave me a supply of 29 gauge needles. Those, made a difference.

31 ga x 5/16 at wallmart. $30.00 for box of hundred. I also had to go clear to the hilt. I jabbed in till it hit my tunica(mine is very tough) then jab through the tunica. Squeeze in the juice. Press the plunger to the bottom then let up. Letting up will draw back a touch of blood to let you know you were In the right spot. Happy stabbing.

Thanks for the help guys. Turns out my doctor did not list what length needle to prescribe so the pharmacy went with 6mm which is their normal size for insulin but their fixing it today by giving me the 8mm needle. I'm so glad I joined this forum and asked before injecting. With such a short needle chances are I would have missed.

I use 28 gauge, 12mm syringe. We are all different, but when I inject, the needle goes in about 6mm before I feel it break into cavernous. Not sure if 6mm would go in far enough each time.

Well dtwarren for some reason the 31 gauge wouldn't poke through into the corpus cavernosa. Strange but true so i did switch back to the 30 gauge. I tried like 3 ta 4 times on each side even switching to a new needle and i couldn't get it to break through. Yeah my cock looked like a heroine addicts arms. lol I know it sounds dumb but its true. Didn't even feel the 31 gauge go through the skin but once it hit the CC it wouldn't go no further so i loaded up the 30 gauge and it went right through. Yep i had to sit there for like 20 min stopping the blood [with a woody] from all those misfires from the 31gauge before any action but yeah I think I'm sticking with the 30 gauge also.
