F.Y.I. regarding auto-injection for trimix. If you have difficulty injecting trimix because of pain, anticipated pain, shakes, fear, etc., as I did, then I would recommend using an auto-injector. I hesitated going this direction for quite some time but my right side always gave me some problems. I purchased the BD Automatic Injector # 328245 for about $18.00 from Walgreens. It is a spring loaded device that has a small push button on its side for release of the needle into the penis. All you have to do is load the syringe, place it in a proper position on the skin surface and gently push in the release button. No pain, no anticipation, very smooth and its overwith before you know it.....what a pleasure and a dream. Absolutely no anxiety making the process almost transparent. I bit the bullet and very happy I did.
Hope this is of some consolation to those in need.
