Are you trying to learn how to mix HCG injections? If yes, you should check out this guide with everything to know and do.
The fertility and weight-loss industries are massive. And both put a lot of pressure on their clients financially and medically.
Not to mention financially - the weight-loss industry in the U.S. generates $72 billion a year and the fertility industry generates around $15.6 billion.
A common product between the two is HCG, a compound that's used to help people have a baby and lose the baby weight. These may seem to be strange to pair. But to both industries, HCG is a vital component.
And if you eventually patronize these industries for common procedures, you will eventually have to learn how to mixHCG.
Learning What to know How to MixHCG
HCG stands forhuman chorionic gonadotropin. It's a hormone that the uterus excretes during the early stages of pregnancy. It's what most pregnancy tests are trying to detect.
In treating fertility, the injections are used to help the ovaries develop and release and egg. It is also used in men to help increase sperm count.
In weight loss, it's paired with the eponymous HCG diet. It's believed to impact how people experience hunger. It is also paired with a radical daily calorie count reduction, in some cases down to 500 calories a day. This is about a fourth of the calories that most healthy people are recommended to eat.
Mix It Up
If you get a low-cost HCG mixing kit, you will get a few key things: bacteriostatic water, a sterile vial, injection prep pads and a large mixing syringe
You will have to have the HCG prescribed to you by a provider. It often does not come with a mixing kit. Also, your doctor will give you a specific dosing needle and syringe.
Step one:Assess the situation, make sure that you read all the instructions provided to you by your health care provider and the prescribing pharmacist. If there are conflicts in the instructions, call your provider and reconcile them.
Step two:Figure out where the HCG is stored and where it needs to be mixed. In some cases, the HCG will come in the vial that it will be mixed in; in other cases, you will need to use the empty sterile mixing vial.
The HCG will also likely be in a powder that needs to be reconstituted. It also may come in a condensed liquid. Both will need thebacteriostatic water to appropriately dilute and mix.
Step three: Grab the mixing needle and syringe. Attach if need be. Open the lid for the HCG and the water. For powdered HCG, measure out about half of the water needed in the mixing needle and inject it into the HCG. Gently swirl until dissolved. Remove the mixture and inject it into the empty mixing vial. Add the remaining water needed. Gently swirl.
For the concentrate, you will simply add the prescribed amount ofbacteriostatic water in most cases.
From there, you use it as you need it for up to 72 hours. Store in a dark refrigerator. Some recommend wrapping the stored vial in foil to help prevent light degradation and to help ensure the vial stays cool.
Learning how to mix HCG is just one point in the collision of life and science. See the articles below for more on what you need to know about the scientific world around you.
