You can self-inject in 2 sites of your body; your vastus lateralis muscle which is located on the center/side part of your thigh, or your ventrogluteal muscle which is on the upper part of your butt.
The latter’s injection site is easier to spot. However, I don’t have long arms and a flexible body to do that lol.
If you’re a contortionist, you can also self-inject on your arms so kudos to you.
Once I find the spot, I clean the area with a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol. I let it air dry or if I’m in a hurry, I wipe it with a tissue.
I then inject the area and aspirate (pull the plunger back ever so slightly) using the same needle that I used to draw the medicine.
Some say that you need to use 2 different needles (drawing and injecting) but with Progynon depot, you don’t have to. The only reason as to why you need to change needles is because some vials have a penetrable cap which makes the needle blunt. Furthermore, some medications are too thick that a 22-25 gauge needle can’t draw them out easily.
Going back, it is very important to aspirate as Progynon depot is meant to be injected intramuscularly. If you pull the plunger and you see blood in your syringe, it means that you hit a vein and you should move to another spot.
Once everything checks out, push the plunger slowly until everything in the syringe is gone.
Moving on to the most important part of this Progynon depot review.
Enhanced breast growth
Soreness of breasts
Increased libido if I don’t take anti-androgens
Bigger areola and nipples
Sweat doesn’t give a foul odor
Slower growth of body hair (facial hair growth is unaffected)
Less athletic (but I’m not sporty to begin with so I lack practice)
A bit weak within 24 hours after the injection
Heightened sensitivity and emotions within 72 hours after the injection
Please know that you have to talk to your endocrinologist in order for him/her to determine your RIGHT estrogen dosage. What may be enough for me may be too much or too little for you.
