View Full Version : A dose of 40 iu.. does that seem right?

I am going to a clinic that utilizes HCG but not the standard HCG diet. They gave me doses of HCG already mixed and on the baggy they hand wrote 40 iu. That seems low but does it depend on strength or is it all the same? Does anyone have information on that?

Hi JB,
I am sure there are different measures out there, the InShapeMD program that I am using states
Injectable HCG: This form you inject once daily. Mixing and refrigeration are required, as
discussed below. Once mixed the HCG should be used within 45 days and kept out of direct
sunlight. Dosage varies from 125 IU ‐ 175 IU.

I definitely would ask to see the vial that it came from to determine the concentration. I also looked at the pharmacy where my product was obtained. I also asked to see the bacteriostatic water that it was mixed with, so I would encourage you to ask your provider for full disclosure. What diet are you eating with it? Read Dr. Simeon's protocol, Pounds & Inches. It is all online with very specific guidelines for success. Good luck & hope that helps.
