One of the most common areas of concern among those interested in the HCG diet is HCG injections for men. The HCG diet has developed a stigma that it's more suitable for women. However, we're going to show you why it's also a great choice for men. We'll then explain how to undergo HCG treatment and inject the HCG hormone.
HCG for Men?
As mentioned before, there's a common stigma surrounding HCG treatment, as well as the overall diet. Many are concerned it's not safe for men. However, there have been many examples of men who've safely achieved significant weight loss using HCG injection therapy while adhering to an HCG diet plan. In fact, Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) is a substance that's found naturally in men in the womb.
But not everyone follows the low calorie diet plan, or undergoes HCG therapy, the same way. Depending on your size, age, activity levels, and health, among other factors, you may be prescribed different calorie limits, dosages, and methods of consuming the HCG hormone.
You can put your worries to rest as long as you work with your doctor to outline a safe and effective HCG diet plan. Both men and women can find success.
What About Testosterone?
One of the main concerns among men regarding HCG injections is how it affects testosterone.
You shouldn't be worried as long as your doctor prescribes you the correct amount of HCG. For this diet, you only need enough to help suppress food cravings in order to make it easier to tolerate.
The correct dosage of HCG won't make your body produce more testosterone than you would naturally. In fact, the hormone might benefit those who have low testosterone levels.
Where to Get HCG Injections
You can't simply walk into a store and buy HCG. So, where do you get the hormonal injections?
Do I Need A Prescription?
Whether or not you need a prescription for HCG injections depends on where you live. You'll need one in most Western countries, including most areas of the U.S, and you'll need to get the injections from a pharmacy.
But it can be easier than you might think to obtain a prescription for HCG injections in the U.S., especially with telehealth and online physicians. Many online suppliers are staffed with physicians which are capable of prescribing you injections if they're suitable.
However, the best way to have this question answered is to visit a doctor.
Buying HCG Injections Online
Online HCG providers have become a popular alternative for buying the hormone injections.
There are a number of reputable online sellers who also offer free consultations with on-staff physicians. They can assess your dietary needs and prescribe the dosage that would be best for you.
Additionally, many of these websites offer free dietary "coaching" and personalized dietary advice. They can help you through each stage of the HCG diet process and are an excellent resource to have at your disposal.
If you'd like to check out some of these HCG providers, we wrote a comprehensive review of our favourite sellers here.
Scams are prevalent in almost any online marketplace, and HCG injections are no exception.
Stick to the verified, licensed websites, which are staffed with real physicians. These websites provide you with the proper dosage, and youcan rest easy that the product you're buying is legitimate.
You don't want to buy HCG from an unlicensed or unverified source. Not only will you risk buying an improper dosage, but you won't receive verification that the product is legitimate. Stick to the trusted sources.
How to Inject HCG
Now that we've examined how and where to get HCG injections, let's cover one of the most important parts of the process: howto inject HCG.
This step can be one of the scariest parts of the diet for many people. You have to do the injection yourself, which can be difficult for those who have a fear of needles, for example.
But sometimes our fears are driven by the unknown. Here, we'll explain how the HCG injection therapy works and detail the potential risks so dieters can better visualize and overcome their fears.
Although this section provides a "tutorial" on injecting HCG, these injections require a personalized approach. You should speak with a doctor to understand the best method of injecting HCG for you. You need to settle on a proper dosage, schedule, and diet plan.

Step 1: Prepare the Injection
Prepare the Injection
HCG injections are bought in either liquid form or as a mixable powder. You need to follow the exact instructions you've received with your dosage. Keep in mind that liquid HCG must be refrigerated before use for at least three hours.
You'll need to mix the HCG powder with a vial of sterile water, which will come with your injections. Then, you have to pull the proper amount of sterile water from one vial using your syringe and squirt it into a vial containing the powder. Next, roll the vial to mix and pull it back out using the syringe. Lastly, turn the syringe facing directly up until the bubbles gather near the top and push them out slowly.
Step 2: Injecting HCG
Prepare the Injection
HCG can be injected into a layer of fat beneath the skin (a subcutaneous site) or into the muscle (an intramuscular site).
Popular subcutaneous sites include the lower abdomen, the front or outer thigh, and the upper arm.
Popular intramuscular sites include the shoulder and the outer buttocks. The process for injection is similar for both.
Here's how the process generally unfolds if you're injecting subcutaneously:
Follow the same process if you're injecting intramuscularly, but use your fingers to stretch the skin over your muscle, making it easy to insert the needle. Then, hold your skin in a stretched position until you remove the needle.

There's a lot to consider in this area of dieting, from legitimately purchasing HCG injections to learning how to do the injections yourself. Speak with a physician today to get started.
