The amount that you mix is based on how many times you would like to create the solution, and what is advisable from your doctor or pharmacy.

If you are unable to find a nearby medical office, your pharmacy is further away than you’d like, or your working hours make it difficult for you to make appointments during the day, then you may need to order your materials online.

You’re probably nervous about messing up your human chorionic gonadotropin solution, after all, this is your weight and health on the line! Not to worry though, we’ll walk you through the steps in an easy to understand way, and you’ll be on your way to dropping those pounds in no time.

Why You Should be Mixing HCG Yourself

If you are wondering why you need to mix your own solution, it’s because the solution will begin to degrade quickly if not stored and refrigerated right, so you want to put it together once you are prepared to begin your diet. If you use a medical office for weekly check ups, more likely a nurse will mix your solution for you, and tell you to keep it below a specific temperature until you get home, and then put it in the fridge.

How to Mix Your HCG

These HCG reconstitution instructions are for patients who are using HCG 5000iu, if you are using a different amount or dose, we’ll cover those changes in just a bit. Before you begin, you’ll need to make sure you have all your materials, which include:

Materials Needed: 

  • 5000iu of HCG, which will look like powder or a tablet in an ampoule
  • Large syringe to mix your solution
  • A 10ml sterile vial
  • Bacteriostatic water
  • Alcohol swabs

Step by Step Instructions

  1. Your human chorionic gonadotropin needs to be mixed in a sterile environment, so most people use their kitchens since the surfaces are cleaned easily, and don’t forget to wash your hands. If your HCG comes with a sterile saline solution, you can get rid of that since you won’t be needing it at all.
  2. Use an alcohol swab to wipe the top of the ampoule, then quickly snap the top of it off at its most narrow point. Using another alcohol wipe, sterilize the top of the bacteriostatic water, and the top of the sterile vial that the human chorionic gonadotropin will be kept in.
  3. Using your syringe, take 3ml of bacteriostatic water and put it into the sterile vial. The sterile vial will have a rubber top, but the needle will pierce it easily so do not take the top off. To mix the water and HCG together, you will take 2ml of the bacteriostatic water into your syringe, and add it to the ampoule of HCG. Gently mix the two together using the end of your needle, and it should dissolve quickly. There is no need to shake the mixture together as long as you use the needle to stir it together.
  4. Once your HCG solution is mixed in the ampoule, your syringe will be used to take in all of the solution, and then you will add it to your sterile vial, which will already have 3ml of bacteriostatic water inside. Roll the bottle gently between your palms to further combine the water and HCG, but do not shake the bottle. Now that you are finished mixing HCG, you need to keep the bottle refrigerated.

** If you are using the minimum recommended dosage of 125iu daily, you will have enough to last you about 26 days.

What If I’m Not Using an HCG 5000iu Mixture?

The most commonly mixed amount is used with 5000iu of HCG, but your dosage may be lower based on your doctor’s recommendation, or for any other reason. If you are using 2000iu, you will follow the same directions, but you will only add 1ml of bacteriostatic water to the vial, and then 1 more ml of water to the human chorionic gonadotropin ampoule. When you purchase your HCG mixing set, either from a pharmacy or your doctor’s office, inquire about the correct measurements and chart to use, as some syringes use different sizing.
