What does it mean when you dream about a syringe?

A syringe is a fairly obvious symbol of male sexuality. A dream about being injected with a syringe can reflect concerns about one’s health, or it can be a more general anxiety dream if we have a particular dislike of shots and of having our blood drawn. It could also represent a feeling that we are being influenced by someone else. (See also Needle, Vaccination).


An apparatus commonly made of glass or plastic, fitted snugly onto a hollow needle, used to aspirate or inject fluids for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. Also known as hypodermic syringe.
A large glass barrel with a fitted rubber bulb at one end and a nozzle at the other, used primarily for irrigation purposes.
