Is injecting roids safe?



I do a lot of push ups and sit ups. And I drink plenty of milk.

    For some reason, I can't watch the video at work.
     
    What's the overall video outcome?
     
    Without seeing the video, my comments are somewhat generalised, but here goes...
     
    No is the short and easy answer. Injecting anything is dangerous, and the risk of infection is always there. There are methods and safety protocols that will reduce risks, but it is still not impossible for something to go wrong.
     
    I guess with steroids, especially underground made ones, it can be unknown as to what the contents of said product is, which then opens up more risks... 
     
    However without seeing the video it's hard for me to post a proper response.

    I suppose it depends on what 'safe' means to you. 
     
    I'd say on the whole injecting steroids is safe.

    I've always though the whole underground thing was a bit risky, in fact the lack of Pharma stuff around was a big contributor to me giving up on gear.  
     
      ..But things have come a long way, products like Cillit Bang mean cleaner bathtubs for this stuff to be made in, so I am sure everything is fine now.  

    No, Not that Dr Z.  Please don't bother PM'ing me for 'Price Lists'  You have the wrong guy.

    Have you ever injected steroids?

    yes , not safe , introduces unnecessary risk but so does crossing the road everyday , play with fire and you risk getting burned .
     
    feel same as DRz , half tempted to knock it on the head and give up gear, or one last year competing ? lack of pharma gear leaves me a bit bewildered , it's almost as if the pharma companies have stopped making it , there is literally none anywhere , I haven't took any real pharma gear since 2003 .  Everything since is underground gear . But there is different grades of underground gear , 10 ml bottles which are mostly bathtub grade and some decent 1ml amps , but it's really hard to tell what's good and what isn't .  
     
    I did have more bad shots/infections with pharma gear though , since 2003 i've only had 1 bad shot , but with proper pharma i had quite a lot , in 2003 my leg swole a good 6 inches , couldn't walk for 12 days , huge egg on the side of it , it even hurts thinking about it . Had I had gone to A&E I think they would have probably drained it , but took some antibiotics and got away with it .   I find these days you need twice as much to achieve the same results.

    Does the video I posted make you think about giving it up even more?

    Not really anymore than if i hadn't seen it to be honest , I've seen this first hand with infections/abscess and in recently a case of sepsis with a training partner . I don't disagree with anything in the video and I think hes right regarding legalisation. Although I have never once seen anyone or heard of anyone sharing a needle , not sure this is a big thing in the UK , I pay for my needles and would never consider sharing.  But i've been coming to these conclusions since i started using gear again in 2012 after having at least  8 years off. 
     
    there is always the risk with taking gear we all know that , gear quality/sterility is unknown the majority of the time and yeah it does feel like an accident waiting to happen.

    Yes. My first cycle was in 1995. For the last 6 years on average I've been pinning 200 times a year on TRT (Test & HCG). Never had an issue with UG or pharma grade and don't know anyone else that has despite being on the competitive bodybuilding scene for a number of years when I was younger.

    Yep been cycling 20+ years the last 3 TRT/Blast and i've had zero problems in fact i've had numerous infections from thorns work related but none self inflicted. So has anyone actually found out the cause of the infection ie was it bad gear, bad technique or hygiene? three things that are easily avoided.

    TO be honest, considering how many are using around the world, it seems like a tiny % of those that have any issues.
    More people are dying from taking paracetamol.

    Agree , I don't agree with the whole gofundme page , hes been pretty stupid and irresponsible and is now looking for handouts , I suppose desperation kicked in . I think I would rather lose a leg than do that , what if the next ops fails?

    There are no "official" numbers but it's pretty obvious for someone involved with AAS how widespread their use is. It's actually surprising that these cases are so few and far between considering how many people are using fake gear at any given time. It says something about the quality of fake gear, even the guys making **** stuff that's nothing but vegetable oil at least take the time to sterilize and filter it.
     
    But really there is so much information out there nowadays that it's not hard to find good gear at all, people are just careless. In some of the worst horror stories when the guy actually elaborates on the causes it turns out steroids were just the tip of the iceberg of all the stuff he was injecting and he was reusing needles, not sterilizing, sometimes dropping the loaded syringe with exposed needle on the floor and using it anyway lol
