Injecting tonight and hit a vein. Aspirated and when I saw the blood I pulled out the needle. Never injected back in. Man am I freaked out! The reaction would be pretty immediate right? It's been 10 min and still feeling so anxious!

Wow, yikes! I think the reaction would be pretty immediate, surely inside 20 minutes or so. But if you only aspirated and didn't inject you should be good!

Right aspirated and didn't inject. You know the blood only made the bicillin look creamy colored at thr tip but it was off enough that I ceased the whole operation. Then when I pushed out the bicillin into the sink there was a good amount of blood in there. Man that was scary. I've been doing bicillin a year. Really ready to quit!

I wouldn't worry. I've done that multiple times. If you aren't improving at least slowly, I'd reconsider doing bicillin. I stopped after a yr because of only negligible improvement & hitting nerves.

But don't freak out about the blood. I've even injected into the vein because I didn't want to waste the 50 dollar shot. Not saying to do that, just that you really have to screw up the shot to put yourself in danger, like inject air.
