## How to measure hcg in iu's?

I have 5,000 iu's of HCG .How do i figure out the conversion to cc's??

My sterile water is 1ML.....so 5,000iu's/ML(or would it be over 1ML with the powder added?)......so i can get 12.5 shots at 400iu's per shot....

1ML divided by 12.5 = .08

.08 = a little under one dot on the syringe...just under a thenth

is this right????

also can i store it in an old testE vial if i rinse it with alcohol?

If you add it to the solution the kit gives you, you have 5000IU per ML or 5000IU per CC. It's the same thing.

If you use a slin syringe you can calculate it in w/ .1 cc's. So 0.1cc's = 500IU's of HCG.

4. To make things even easier, you can just buy a 10ml vial of BAC water, and add the powder directly to that. Then, that'll give you 500IU's of HCG per cc.

I have a vile of 10ml bio water along with a 10,000 iu vile of HCG , how could I convert it to take 10 shots of 500 iu's? When I mix the two viles together would half a CC be the equivilent of 500 iu's? I am running a test/EQ cycle for 10 weeks, and I plan on taking a 500 iu's (HCG) every week

6. i dont know how long you guys are planning on using 1 amp of hcg for, but i think you need to know that you can't spread it out over a 10 or 12 week period...im sure you know by now that it must be refrigerated after it is reconstituted.....however, i dont think you know that it goes bad after a few weeks....if you mix it with bacteriostatic water it will last longer than if you mix it with sterile water

well Swoll, I know my cycle doesn't really need HCG but from doing a little research, many have taken low dosages throughout the cycle, I plan on keeping mine low as well, what do you suggest?

The old test vial is already sterile so there is no need for the alcohol unless the top has been opened. 10iu = 500iu on a 100iu slin pin which IMO...should be shot every 3 days with a slin pin.

I'm not to sure of what a slin pin, you mean I cant just use my 23g 1.5in, and do you mean 10ML=500iu, so therefore when I combine the 10ml vial of bac water w/ the 10,000iu of HCG gives me 500iu per CC?
