Hi and welcome to HCM
Use bigger than 23 needle with 1 or 1.5 inch length. you need to inject into the largest muscle that you can find, such as the vastus laterus( top of leg) or the glut ( upper thigh) take an alcohol pad and wipe the area that you intend to inject into.

quickly plunge it into the desired area make sure that you pull back a little on the plunger to make sure that you are not in a vein. Uusally it takes more than 2 days to start working

Wish you good health.
