How to mix hCG shots from powder concentrate form?

First, determine your dosage: Preparation according to Dr. Simeons' original hCG diet protocol calls for 125 i.u. daily doses. Kevin Trudeau recommended 175 i.u. Discuss the amount of your protocol with your provider.

Required: hCG in powder concentrate, injection safe sterile water, syringes for mixing with replacement needles, alcohol pads, sterile glass vial.

A note on the sterile water provided with the hCG: The powder concentrate includes an ampoule of liquid sterile water to be mixed with it, however, this amount is not sufficient for the hCG weight loss shots and should be discarded. An entirely new, larger vial of injection safe sterile water is required. Sterile water which can be found at any medical supply site, or pharmacy, that is safe for injecting. For 175 i.u. doses, 30 cc of water is needed. Bacteriostatic sterile water is noted to preserve the mixed hCG for up to one month.

DO NOT MIX TWO DIFFERENT LIQUIDS WITH THE HCG. You want to use only one liquid, from one source, to dissolve the powder.

Mixing Preparations: HCG weight loss shots are prepared in a very sterile environment. The area should be cleaned with bleach or alcohol and left to air dry. Mixing materials should be laid out in the sterile environment and hands should be washed with anti-bacterial soap. Hands should be dried with paper towels.

Opening the glass ampoule of the hCG powder concentrate: The top of the ampoule is cleaned with alcohol. Using one swift motion, the top is snapped away from the body. It is suggested that an inside out alcohol pad wrapper is used when opening for protection.

The rubber top of the 30cc bacteriostatic water vial is sterilized with a new rubbing alcohol pad.
The rubber top of a new sterile glass vial is sterilized with a new rubbing alcohol pad.
Using a 30cc syringe, 25cc of sterile water is drawn.
The needle is replaced.
1cc of sterile water is injected into the hCG ampoule, slowly down the side of the glass, not allowing the needle to touch the glass. If the needle touches the glass, replace the needle before continuing to the next step. The powder will dissolve almost immediately, with a gentle swirling of the vial.
DO NOT SHAKE.
24cc of sterile water is then injected into the new Glass vial.
With a new 3cc syringe, the 1 cc of hCG is drawn.
Needle is replaced.
The glass vial is then sterilized with a new alcohol pad, and the hCG is injected into the new sterile glass vial containing the 24 cc of sterile water.

The result is 25 doses of 1 ml doses. 1 cc of the new mixture is drawn into a new 3 cc syringe for each injection providing a 200 i.u. dose.

175 i.u. INJECTIONS WITH A 5000 i.u. AMPOULE OF hCG:
The procedure is the same as above, except 28.5 cc of sterile water is used instead of 25 cc. This results in 28 doses of 1 ml each. 1 cc of the mixture is drawn into a sterile 3 cc syringe for each injection, providing the 175 i.u. dose.

200 i.u. INJECTIONS WITH A 1500 i.u. AMPOULE OF hCG:
The mixing procedure is exactly the same as the above procedure except 7.5 cc. of sterile water is used instead of 25 cc. Results in 7 doses of 1 ml each. 1 cc of the mixture is drawn into a sterile 3 cc syringe for each injection, providing the 200 i.u. dose.

175 i.u. INJECTIONS WITH A 1500 i.u. AMPOULE OF hCG:
The mixing procedure is the same as the above procedure except 8.5 cc of sterile water is used instead of 25 cc. Results in 8 doses of 1 ml each. 1 cc of the mixture is drawn into a sterile 3 cc syringe for each injection, providing the 175 i.u. dose.

How to administer hCG shots for weight loss?
The following are general instructions. Different Doctor's follow different injections protocols for the hCG Diet - always follow your Doctor's orders.

Clean the area with an alcohol swab in a circular motion, from center out.
Allowing the alcohol to air dry will somewhat ease the discomfort of the shot.
Gently pinch the skin and insert the needle directly into the muscle. You do not need to insert the entire needle if not necessary.
Pull back on the syringe slightly to check for blood in the syringe. If there is blood, simply reinsert the needle in another location. Inject the medication quickly or slowly- whichever is more comfortable for you.

It is not abnormal to see a small amount of bleeding at the injection site. Direct pressure will stop the bleeding and prevent bruising of the skin. Slight swelling, redness, burning, or itching is not uncommon and should subside shortly.

Helpful Measurements and Tips

Allow the alcohol to air dry before injections. It will sting less

hCG can be at room temperature for 2-3 days, but should be refrigerated after that

Syringes for hCG shots

The larger the gauge number, the smaller the needle: for example, a 21 gauge needle is larger than a 29 gauge needle.

1 ml = 1 cc
i.u. = international units

Hi there,

I would like to add a few things to this thread concerning IM injections. When aspirating to see if you've hit a blood vessel on the way in, if you have hit one - it's much safer to discard the entire needle, syringe and even the hCG and start over for a couple of important reasons. Once the needle comes out of your muscle, it is no longer sterile and you run the risk of infection by re-inserting it into a different area. Especially if you've hit a blood vessel. The other reason is that needles dull each time they puncture something. So if you're using the same needle to inject with that you used to draw with, you're puncturing your skin with a dull needle and that will hurt. If you hit a blood vessel, pull out the needle, and inject again - you're using a needle that's already been used twice already and it will be even more dull and is likely to hurt more.

The pain factor is worse the larger the gauge needle you use. I have not injected hCG, so I don't know how thick it is but I have been self-injecting my testosterone intramuscularly for over 6 years and I have used needles anywhere between 21g to 25g, and I've made the mistake of reusing a needle that already punctured my vial and my skin and it was very painful. Even at a small size.

I've never injected anything subcutaneously, so I'm not sure how that would fare using the same needle more than once, but I can imagine it wouldn't be as painful. I could be wrong, though.

Love,
Cal
