Purchase hCG

Want to use the hCG Protocol - Learn the Differences in the product

You have to decide if you're going to get U.S. made prescription hCG, or order overseas. What are the options and benefits of each?

Source U.S. Made hCG through our doctor (click here to learn more) Overseas hCG (scroll down to learn more)
Prescription? Yes, the doctor will have an appointment with you and write the script No, their doctor will write it when you order (this is technically illegal in the US)
Cost is Cheaper no, but mixed by compounding pharmacy for sterility and freshness yes, about 50% less expensive
Mixed for you Yes, includes all supplies for 40 days

No, and you have to purchase supplies and need to
mix new batches 2-3 times in a 40-day round

How Much Enough for 40 days of protocol including 2 load days Depends on how much you order (see below for table)
Lasts how long? 60-70 days once mixed 15-20 days once mixed
Includes supplies Yes No- Purchase from an independent supplier
How Long to Get? Usually less than a week, shipped premixed overnight after
compounded, and on ice to ensure freshness
Average 2-3 weeks unless customs holds it
Quality? Excellent Excellent
Sublingual Can get injected or nasal spray You decide since you mix it
Effectiveness Same for both
Safety

Extremely high - since it is mixed for you in a licenced compounding pharmacy in a sterile environment with pharmacy-quality products, so long as you take basic injection safety measures it's great

Depends - since you must mix it yourself, and do not have a sterile environment in which to mix, you are the variable. The product is good, but mixing is where it can get contaminated.

Note: If you order from overseas, you should mix with the same diluent that is sent with your hCG, so check this when you order so you can get the right one when you get your supply kit. If this is bacteriostatic water, mix with that. If it is sodium chloride 0.9%, get some and mix with that. This is not a concern when ordering U.S. made hCG, it is mixed for you with pharmaceutical grade diluents.

What about 'High Purity' products?

It doesn't matter if you order high purity or not, that is just a brand name, and has nothing to do with the quality of the product. hCG is made in many countries, including Germany, Switzerland, India and China. Due to the many issues with drugs and other products coming contaminated from China, I recommend not using meds from there. However, Switzerland has a pretty good track record, and I've had good progress with their products. DO NOT order premixed hCG, once it is mixed, it begins to degrade and has about 15-20 days before it becomes ineffective. Since it takes anywhere from 10 days to 2 weeks to get to you, you already have only a week or so left on it when it arrives.

How much will I dose?

I like things easy. So I figure on a .5 ml injection or sublingual dose. This is easy to measure and mix, and enough to get into the syringe so it is reasonably accurate. More is unwieldy, and less is hard to measure accurately, since many syringes have a little resevoir at the bottom and bit gets left behind. This is manageable at .5, but could affect your dose at .25.

If you are prescribed by the doctor we work with, you will be dosing at .125 on the syringe, per their mixing ratio.

If you would like to figure out a different dosage size, you can use our calculator. Just enter the size of your hcg bottle, the size dose you want, and the concentration. This should always be 125 for 125 IU, the dosage stated in Pounds and Inches to be optimal, and confirmed by Dr. Belluscio who is researching the sublingual application of the protocol. You can read more about Dr. Bellucsio at http://www.oralhcg.com.

For mixing, here are your calculations for a .5 ml dose.

  • 2000IU Bottle of hCG - 8ml of diluent
  • 5000IU Bottle of hCG - 20ml of diluent

If you want a different dose, here is the hCG calculator you can use to determine how much diluent to add:

hCG Mixing Calculator

hCG Mixing Calculator

Amount of hCG Powder (IU):
Preferred Injection Volume (ml/cc):
hCG dose per Injection (125):
Tell me Diluent Needed (ml/cc):

 

NOTE: Insulin syringes are standardized for insulin, a 0.3cc holds 30 units, a 0.5cc holds 50 units, and a 1cc holds 100 units. 10 units is equal to 0.1cc. Since your hCG will be concentrated differently than insulin it will therefore not be following the same standard. Make it easy and use 0.3, 0.5 or 1cc as your preferred injection volume and get yourself the syringe of matching max volume. I use .5cc to dose.

NOTE: CC = IU for these calculations.

You should mix with the diluent the hCG comes with for maximum effectiveness. The manufacturer has formulated their hCG powder to work best with their recommended diluent. This is usually either bacteriostatic water or sodium chloride .09%. Check the details on the product you order to know which is best.

How much do I buy?

If you are a woman, figure an average daily loss of .5 lbs. If a man, figure 1 lb per day average. That is the amount shown both by 20 years of Dr. Simeons' work, and by anecdotal reports over my last 2 years of research. So, if you need to lose 100 lbs, a woman will need 200 dosing days and a man will need 100. Here is a chart to help you figure how much hCG to buy:


NOTE: If you are dosing sublingual, double all treatment days, as you will be dosing twice daily at 125IU. Order 5000 IU vials instead of 2000 IU, you will be mixing twice as often.


 

Treatment Days (not inc. loading) No. of Rounds (assuming .5 avg. loss/day women and 1.0 avg. loss/day men - add 2 days per round for loading) vials of 2000IU (15 doses/bottle) vials of 5000IU (40 doses per bottle)
Short (23 day) Long (43 day) NOTE: Do not buy if you dose sublingual - get 5000IU NOTE: Double the number of vials for sublingual dosing

About hCG - Info & Side Effects

HCG Information

hCG is a prescription medication in the United States. hCGLoss works with a physician to help you obtain a legal prescription to hCG so that you can proceed with your protocol knowing you have pure, safe and legal products. hCGLoss is dedicated to providing only the highest quality and safety standards, so we do not endorse purchchasing overseas. Recent FDA crackdowns on homeopathic hCG lead us to believe that they will also be looking at overseas transactions, and do not wish to expose our clients to risk.

HCG Indications

hCG is a popular medicine that helps both male and female patients deal with infertility. However, this medicine can also be used for some other purposes (to treat or to prevent some other medical conditions) that have not been listed here, such as weight loss (not approved by the FDA for this use, it is considered an 'off label' use by doctors.

HCG Warnings

Disclaimer: The dietary information provided by hCGLoss is not intended to diagnose, treat, or cure any illness or to provide medical advice. We are not medical doctors and we do not prescribe medication. If you have any questions about the relationship between nutrition and supplements, or wish to learn more about how to balance your health we recommend that you seek advice of a qualified and licensed health practitioner. hCGLoss is owned and run by a certified health and weight loss coach and can provide coaching, but not medical information or advice. Our opinions are based on literature and research by a variety of medical doctors, naturopathic physicians, biochemists, and other professional researchers. hCG is not approved by the FDA for weight loss. Your hCG, should you decide to work with the physician we partner with, is manufactured in an FDA licensed and approved laboratory for safety. You are encouraged to make your health care decisions based on your own research and the advice of a qualified health care professional.

Side effects of consuming homeopathic HCG could include swelling, shortness of breath, light headedness, or heavy redness. If you experience any of these side effects, consult a doctor or medical professional immediately. Side effects of Rx hCG include increased length or heavier menstrual flow, increased pain from uterine cysts, headache, feeling restless or irritable, mild swelling or water weight gain. depression, breast tenderness or swelling; or pain, swelling, or irritation where the injection is given. In rare cases, some women using this medicine have developed a condition called ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), especially after the first treatment cycle. OHSS can be a life-threatening condition. Call your doctor right away if you have any of the following symptoms of OHSS:

  • severe pelvic pain;
  • swelling of the hands or legs
  • stomach pain and swelling
  • shortness of breath
  • weight gain
  • diarrhea
  • nausea or vomiting or
  • urinating less than normal
If you experience these symptoms, contact your physician.

In the case of female patients who want to be treated with HCG:

- Since infertile female patients who undergo medically assisted reproduction (especially those who need in vitro fertilization), are known to often be suffering from tubal abnormalities, after a treatment with this drug they might experience much more ectopic pregnancies. This is why early ultrasound confirmation at the beginning of a pregnancy (to see whether the pregnancy is intrauterine or not) is crucial. - Pregnancies who have occurred after a treatment with this medicine are submitted to a higher risk of multiplets. - Female patients who have thrombosis, severe obesity or thrombophilia should not be prescribed this medicine as they have a higher risk of arterial or venous thromboembolic events after or during a treatment with HCG.
- Female patients who have been treated with this medicine are usually more prone to pregnancy losses.

In the case of male patients: A prolonged treatment with HCG is known to regularly lead to increased production of androgen. Therefore:

- Patients who are suffering from overt or latent cardiac failure, hypertension, renal dysfunction, migraine or Epilepsy might not be allowed to start using this medicine or might have to be prescribed a lower dose of HCG. - This medicine should be used with extreme cautious in the case of prepubertal teenagers in order to reduce the risk of experiencing precocious sexual development or premature epiphyseal closure. This type of patients skeletal maturation should be closely and regularly monitored.

Both male and female patients who have the following medical conditions must not start a treatment with HCG - Hypersensitivity to this medicine or to any of its main ingredients. - Known or possible androgen-dependent tumors for example male breast carcinoma or prostatic carcinoma.

HCG Storage guidelines

HCG should be stored in the refrigerator. Keep this medicine away from direct sunlight. Store it in a place that is far from the reach of pets and children in order to avoid unwanted accidents such as poisoning.

HCG Dosage

Dosage for the hCG protocol: 125 IU daily if injected, 125 IU twice daily if sublingual

This medicines acute toxicity incidence is very low (meaning it takes a lot to be toxic). The average symptoms of an overdose with HCG are not known in the case of human patients.

HCG Missed Dose

Ask your coach or physician what to do in case you miss one of your prescribed doses of HCG.

HCG Drug Reactions

You should ask your personal physician if it is safe to start taking other medicines while being treated with HCG.

Sublingual Dosing

Dosing Sublingual:

SL isn't a terribly difficult technique. You simply squirt the contents of your needleless syringe or dropper into your mouth under your tongue and hold it there while it is absorbed. This takes about 1-2 minutes, and you should not eat or drink for 15 minutes before or after you dose. Try to space the doses about 12 hours apart.

Supplies Needed:

  • Alcohol - DO NOT USE!!! Alcohol destroys the hCG molecule, rendering it impotent. This may not happen right away, but it will happen. Yes, I know there are Youtube videos out there aplenty. However, Dr. Bellucsio (see above), who has spent 10 years studying the protocol and using sublingual hCG has said to mix ONLY with the diluent that is needed by the hCG manufacturer (in this case, that would be sodium chloride, which you can either get in your kit, or purchase as wound wash at your local drug store).
  • B-12, colloidal silver, etc. - Do not use. Dr. Bellucsio at http://www.oralhcg.com has studied sublingual hCG for 10 years, and recommends mixing *only* with the diluent that the hCG is recommended with for maximum effectiveness
  • hCG: The easiest size to use is 5000 IU. The potency should last at least 15-20 days. Keep it in the fridge, both unmixed and mixed.
    DO NOT FREEZE HCG. MIXED OR UNMIXED.IT CAN LOSE ITS POTENCY!
  • Colored glass bottle: look at your local health food store or pharmacy for one, they tend to be blue or amber colored. A 30ml-40ml bottle is about right. It will have a screw top.
  • syringe (for taking your dose): Look for an insulin or baby dosing syringe, one you can remove the needle from. You can get these for about 25 cents at the pharmacy, if they look at you, tell them you're dosing a pet orally. You can also find them at feed or pet supply stores. Get one that has a removable needle or no needle, so you can take it off when dosing.
  • 5 or 10 cc/ml syringe for drawing the water and alcohol when you're mixing. If you're going to be getting your hCG in ampoules (those little bottles you have to break the neck of), also get a syringe filter
  1. Get your small glass bottle. Get your diluent and a glass of water (bottled or tap):
    For a 5,000 IU vial, use: 20 cc diluent (This will give you 125 IU per .5 ml. dose)
  2. Draw up 19 ml/cc of diluent with your mixing syringe and put it into the glass bottle.Use multiple syringefuls if you don't have a large enough mixing syringe or get a bigger mixing syringe (30ml is available)
  3. Open ampoule by following directions to break off top. Wipe the top with an alcohol wipe first, and cover the top with the wipe while you break it. If you have a vial, you will have a rubber cap sealing it. You'll just poke your syringe needle through this to mix the hCG. Make sure you use an alcohol swab to clean the vial top, or to cover the ampoule top to snap the neck so you don't cut yourself. Set the vial or ampoule aside.
    NOTE: If you are using ampoules (these are tiny glass bottles sealed in one piece), you should have a filter for your mixing syringe to make sure you aren't getting any tiny glass fragments in your hCG.
  4. Using your mixing syringe, draw up 1ml of diluent. Slowly injectit into the vial. *Gently* roll, DO NOT SHAKE the bottle until the hCG mixes into solution. This only takes a second.
  5. Hold the vial upside down over the glass mixing bottle, insert your syringe into the neck of the vial and draw out all the solution. You may need to carefully withdraw the needle to *just* inside the vial to get all the mix. Make sure you get every drop out of the vial.
  6. Inject this slowly into your dispensing bottle. Do not allow it to foam or bubble.
  7. Gently roll the amber/blue bottle to mix the solution.
  8. Store the hCG mix in the refrigerator, away from the front if possible. Do NOT store in the door as this part of the fridge is usually not as cold as the interior.

    To use the solution, draw up the the right amount for each dose. Remember, you will be taking your dose twice daily.
    • .5 cc (or 50 on an insulin syringe) = 125 IU per dose, 250 IU daily
    1. The maximum dose is 250 IU per day. Most people need 250 IU maximum.
      Be careful though, because too much hCG will cause the same effects as not enough, slow or no weight loss. If you are really hungry (like wanting to chew your arm off) or losing less than .25 lbs per day (average, *not* daily), consider adjusting your dose down .1cc, and give it 3 days to take effect.
    2. Draw up your dose, remove the needle and properly discard it (google free sharps containers to get a free needle container), and squirt the dose under your tongue. Give it 2 minutes or so to absorb. It helps to touch the roof of your mouth with your tongue tip to keep your tongue up while you wait.
    3. As you salivate while holding the hCG mix under your tongue, don't swallow it, but hold it in your mouth as well. It shouldn't become a quantity to great to hold in your mouth, so don't worry about that. If it does, then you may swallow a bit of it. If it doesn't all stay under your tongue the entire time, don't panic! If there isn't much left under your tongue, that is because much of it was absorbed through the membranes there, which is the mechanism by which SL works. Just do your best and if it is in your mouth for a few minutes with most of it under your tongue, it's going to work.
    4. If you don't allow it to absorb sublingually, but swallow it instead, it is degraded in stomach acid significantly so that you won't get the proper dosage.

    Supplies:

    It is possible to save cash by reusing supplies when doing sublingual dosing. Get a dosing syringe for each week, and buy a new glass mixing bottle after each round (it will then last 2 rounds). I would consider purchasing a box of needles, they are cheap and you can then use a new one each day. Make sure to rinse the dosing syringe with water and a bit of alcohol each day.

Injecting

Mixing for Injections

The standard dose that Dr. Simeons gave all his patients was 125 IU's of hCG. To get this dosage with the various sizes of bottles, see the calculator under 'Purchase hCG' above.

Women will lose on the average, .5 lbs per day over the course of their treatment. Men, the cads, will lose more. ::grin::

Tips on Giving yourself injections

If your doctor or clinic has sent you home with pre-mixed injections of hCG for your weight loss protocol, or you have purchased your own syringes and hCG, these tips will help minimize any potential discomfort while injecting.

Here are a few things to help make it easier:

  • Relax the muscles prior to injection. Just take a deep breath, let it out, let your shoulders down, and do it!
  • Rub an ice cube on the injection site to numb the location prior to injection.
  • Rotate injection sites. I go left, right, top, bottom on my tummy, around my belly button. You can do right-left-right-left into the fat of your upper thighs too. For intramuscular (IM) injections, rotate thigh-deltoid-buttocks-thigh-deltoid-buttocks.
  • Once you've loaded your syringe, roll it back and forth *gently* in your hands for a minute to warm the solution
  • Allow the alcohol on your skin to air dry prior to injection.
  • If you're injecting subcutaneously (sub-q), make sure you get insulin needles at *least* 28 gauge. The higher the gauge number, the thinner the needles. 31 gauge needles are hair-fine and you can hardly feel them. I use 28 guage needles, and they only prick a little, like a skeeter bite, when I inject.
  • If are near your goal weight and don't have much fat left, you can pinch your skin and pull it out gently.

Helpful Measurements and Tips

  • 1 ml = 1 cc
  • i.u. = international units
  • hCG can be at room temperature for several hours, but should be refrigerated after that

Note: Different Doctor's follow different injections protocols for the hCG Diet- the following are general instructions- always follow your Doctor's orders.

Steps to Inject for SubQ injections:

  1. Clean the area with an alcohol swab in a circular motion, from center out to about a 2-inch width.
  2. Poke the needle firmly into the middle of the cleaned injection area, going straight in.
  3. Inject the medication quickly or slowly- whichever is more comfortable for you.
  4. 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.
  5. Repeated injections into the same site can cause abscesses. Use your upper arms (deltoid muscle), front of thigh (quadriceps muscle), and upper, outer corner of buttocks for IM injections. It is important to not inject into the center of the buttock as one could easily hit or damage the sciatic nerve. A good suggestion is to rotate your injections as follows: right quad (leg), left quad, right arm, left arm, right and then left gluteus (buttock). For sub-q injections, you can use the upper thigh and stomach, and rotate around your belly button (at least 2 inches out) and your upper thighs, where the fat is thickest.

    When I injected sub-q first I would swab the area to be injected, then I pinch up a wad of fat on my tummy, right or left of my belly button. Then I place the needle straight on, and push it smoothly in. Then I push the plunger slowly and withdraw the needle. Finally I re-cap the needle and toss it into my sharps box.

    Determining dosage strength

    This is important!! 125 IU either once daily for injections or twice daily for sublingual is the amount to take! **More is not better and will not make you lose more weight.** You will NOT lose more weight if you take more hCG. The only purpose of hCG is to keep you comfortable and happy while you do your 500 calorie diet by mobilizing your fat stores to feed you, so the only way to lose as much as your body is able is to stick *strictly* to the very low calorie diet. You might become immune to the HCG near the end of your treatment if the dosage is too high. You should read what Dr. Simeons has to say about it on page 7 of his manuscript.

    Syringes and mixing supplies

    Once you decide whether you're going to do a 23 or 43-day round, get your supplies. You can find them at:

    • hCGSupplies.com
    • http://stores.micheleshcgsupplies.com

    You will need sealed sterile glass vials, sodium chloride or bacteriostatic water (see tabs above for more info and resources), mixing syringes and needles and injecting needles and syringes.

    Use a GLASS vial to store your mixed hCG in. You cannot use a plastic bottle (like the bacteriostatic water bottle), it will not keep the hCG fresh. However, a colored glass bottle will block light and help keep it fresh longer. Scroll down to see some mixing guides....

    You need to decide whether you will be injecting SQ (Subcutaneous-into the body fat) or IM (Intra-Muscular-into a muscle). The two methods require different lengths of needles. Weight loss results seem to be about the same with either of these methods.

    Length of needle for IM injections

    It is generally accepted that a 1" needle is needed for most IM injections. That is long enough to reach deep in the muscle for better absorption of the HCG. The recommended injection method is IM (intramuscular), from Pounds & Inches. It is possible you may need a 1.5 inch needle, if the amount of fat you have in the injection site is substantial. I use a 1/2 inch insulin needle, and inject into my deltoid muscle (the pad of muscle on the arm just below the shoulder on the outside).

    A 1.5 " needle for the arm or leg is quite long unless you have a fair amount of fat in those areas. Something easy to do to check: pinch the fat on the front of leg and arm (not the back of the arm, the side of the arm, deltoid muscle) to see how much you have. If you can easily feel muscle then use a .5 or 1" needle, if you can pinch an inch or more of tissue and cannot feel muscle then the longer needle is ok. Also, you don't have to insert the needle all the way to the end of the needle. A 1/2" needle is too short for an IM injection unless like me you can get to the muscle on the deltoid.

    Diluting the hCG to create your mix

    HCG comes in powder form. The powder is concentrated and there is usually 1cc of liquid shipped with the hcg that is intended to be the mixing solution to use to create an injectable liquid. YOU SHOULD USE THE SAME KIND OF LIQUID TO MIX YOUR HCG, THIS WILL PRESERVE ITS POTENCY. You can get supplies of these diluents from the links above or from Michele in the green square below.The amount of bacteriostatic water or sodium chloride you will use to mix with the hcg is determined by the strength of the dose you plan to take (this should always be 125IU). You'll want to mix so you have an easy to measure amount to inject each morning. I recommend .5ml/cc (which is 50 on a 1cc insulin syringe)

    Because you will be injecting this into your body, you need to mix your hCG in a very sterile environment. You should first set out all your mixing materials on a clean dry surface. (HCG, vials, mixing syringes and needles, bacteriostatic water and alcohol prep wipes). Then wash your hands. Dry with a CLEAN towel or paper towel.

    Important Tip: Sometimes glass ampoules (this is why I recommend buying Corian, they come in a rubber-topped bottle) are a little tricky to open. To open, cleanse the top with alcohol, use the wrapper the alcohol wipe comes in to cover the top of the ampoule (i.e. put the open wrapper over the ampoule top) and snap quickly away from you. You can also use the alcohol wipe itself to avoid potentially cutting yourself with the glass. Some vials have small dots where you should place your thumb. If your does not have a dot, press away from you on the ampoule firmly. If it does not seem to want to snap off fairly easily, rotate the ampoule and try pushing on another spot. Do NOT grip the lower portion of the ampoule so tightly that you crush the ampoule!

    Suggestion: You can practice opening ampoules with the extra bottle of mixing liquid that comes with your hCG. This will let you get the 'feel' of doing this, it can be a bit tricky. You have to use care not to let any glass fragments fall into the HCG. Hold it at an angle so gravity will not allow any glass to fall into the ampoule.

    SUGGESTION: If you get ampoules, they are fairly long, over an inch. Make sure your mixing syringe needle is long, at least 1.5 inches. That will let you get to the bottom and not miss any mixture. If you still cannot reach the bottom, *carefully* tilt the ampoule and withdraw the rest. Since there is a vacuum in the ampoule, you can turn it upside down to pull out the mixture. This seems like it wouldn't work, but it does. NEVER inject air into an ampoule. The inserted air breaks the vacuum and all the liquid will come out very fast. Secondly, just put the point of the needle in far enough to be in the liquid. Then draw back VERY SLOWLY. At the end, you may need to tilt the ampoule to get the very last drops.

    Basic Mixing procedure

    • Swab the top of the vial or ampoule and the mixing bottle with an alcohol swab.
    • Using a 30cc syringe (or the size you need for your ampoule/vial) - draw out the needed amount of Bacterostatic water.
    • Inject 1cc of diluent into the hCG ampoule or vial. Inject the liquid slowly (aim toward the side of the ampoule). Forceful injection straight down into the powder can cause bubbles or foam, which will destroy the hCG molecule. DO NOT let the needle touch anything, even the HCG ampoule. If it does, replace the needle before the next step.
    • Inject the remaining required amount of diluent into the new Glass vial.
    • Swish the liquid very gently in the HCG ampoule until it is all dissolved (never shake it). Rolling it gently between your palms works nicely.
    • Draw out the 1cc of liquid hCG.
    • Swab the Glass vial again and inject the HCG into the sterile Glass vial containing the Bac-water or sodium chloride.

    Daily injections:

    Many believe that your HCG should be at room temperature when you inject it, that it stings more when it is cold. I have not found this to be the case. Dr. Gedde, a biochemist MD who studied the action of the hCG molecule in various situations, recommends *NOT* doing this, as this will put the hCG in danger of losing potency. I personally have not had a problem with stinging, and I don't wait, I get the hCG back in the fridge as quick as I can.

    Of course, always remember to swab the top of the rubber on the vial each time you draw out the mix for your daily injections. Do not touch the needle.

    • Swab the top of the GLASS vial containing your HCG with a rubbing alcohol swab.
    • Draw out the HCG.
    • Replace the needle (Not necessary with the insulin syringes for sub-q)
    • Swab your skin with a rubbing alcohol swab. Let it dry slightly. This helps it to sting less, also.
    • Give yourself the injection.

    Discard the syringe and needles in a hard plastic container, such as a Tide bottle. Secure the top with the original cap and then place them into the trash. To provide extra security, seal with duct tape. You can also get a needle disposal container (called a SHARPS DISPOSAL CONTAINER) at your local drug store or from an on-line supply medical supply site, often for free. This insures that no one will be exposed to needle sticks.
