    I know it needs refrigeration I was questioning the length it lasted in there. I confirmed with my doc yesterday it will be good for 90 days

    You have a question in there? Like, "shouldn't I refrigerate it?" Some can last longer. Heavy told me some brand lasts a few months or something but I'm not sure.

    I recently started HCG prescibed by my doc. the hcg was already in a sterile vial and I only needed to add the Bac water to reconstitute. My dosage is 500iu twice a week and the vial contains 11,000 iu at 2500iu/ml. He did tell me to keep it refrigerated but said it would be fine for the duration of my 10 wks of test cyp. Anything ideas on this Heavy?

    Yes or it will spoil and be useless.

    How to reconstitute HCG.

    HCG usually comes as 5,000iu.
    If you were to use 1ml to dilute this, you’d have 5,000iu/ml
    If you were to use 2ml to dilute this, you’d have 2,500iu/ml
    If you were to use 5ml to dilute this, you’d have 1,000iu/ml

    HCG also comes as 2,500iu
    If you were to use 1ml to dilute this, you’d have 2,500iu/ml
    If you were to use 2 ml to dilute this, you’d have 1,250iu/ml


    HCG also comes as 10,000iu
    If you were to use 1ml to dilute, you’d have 10,000iu/ml
    If you were to use 5ml to dilute, you’d have 2,000iu/ml

    There are also 11,000iu batches
    If you were to use 1ml to dilute, you’d have 11,000iu/ml
    If you were to use 5ml to dilute, you’d have 2,200iu/ml

    To find the iu/ml for a different number, take the total iu of HCG and divide by the number of ml you plan to dilute it with (for example, 5,000iu/2ml=2,500iu/ml)

    The more you dilute it, the more accurate your dosage will be. For example, using 2,500iu/ml, if you were to inject 500iu there could be measuring error. Let’s say the margin of error is +/- .05cc. You could be injecting between 375iu and 625iu. Now, taking the 1,000iu/ml dosage, the +/-.05cc margin of error is lower (also using a dose of 500iu). The dose would be somewhere between 450iu and 550iu.
    At 1,000iu/ml, .5cc is 500iu, .2cc is 200iu, and .25cc is 250iu.
    At 2,200iu/ml, .5cc is 1,100iu, .2cc is 440iu, and .25 is 550iu.

    To find the number of iu in any increment, take the iu/ml number and multiply it by the cc you want (for example, 1,000iu/ml*.5cc=500iu).
    If you want to take a certain iu, divide the number of iu by the iu/ml to find out how many cc you need (for example, if you want 500iu and you have a dose at 2,000iu/ml, 500iu/2,000iu/ml=.25ml)

    Using HCG
    HCG should be stored in a refrigerator immediately after reconstitution. It can last about 4 weeks or so. Swirl it gently before injecting but handle it carefully. Letting HCG go to room temperature after it has been chilled can damage it. If this happens, it is safer to throw it away and start over. When reconstituting, the reconstitution liquid should not be directly shot at the HCG biscuit but rather run down the side of the vial. It is best to used a new, sealed, sterile vial for reconstitution. HCG can be shot either in a muscle (IM) or subcutaneously (sub-q). It is more common to shoot HCG sub-q to avoid scar tissue in the muscle. HCG is typically shot with an insulin pin to minimize pain. A typical 25-30g pin with a .5cc barrel (or as small as you can get) is recommend (a smaller barrel minimizes the margin of error). A sub-q injection is typically done in the abdominal region by pinching a layer of fat and injection the HCG between the fat and muscle. http://www.dukehealth.org/HealthLibr...neousinjection
    Typo. It said 325iu and it is 625iu. My foul.

    Video on mixing and injecting HCG. The diet part is BS.

    I've waited past 4 weeks to shoot once... I ended up with a sore spot and a bruise for several weeks.

    Personally, I wouldn't leave it reconstituted for more than a week. According to Drugs.com, Pregnyl suggests that it can be refrigerated for up to 60 days... ya just have to keep it cool and dark. But I like your 30-day refrigeration suggestion much better - and less than a week, if possible. The product comes separated due to stability issues and pretty much any insert will say "use immediately" after reconstitution...

    Thank you! This is a good addition for the Chemical FAQ forum.
