Needle transmission is the highest risk. We are not talking sticks or pokes. "Injections"

Hey Teak,  if steroids considered a IV Drug, would it effect a 13 week negative test, and would have to test further than 13 weeks,  I has been over 2 years since I used steriods.

Anytime any drug, "street" or prescribed where the works were shared there is a risk.
