    HCG shelf life?

    What is the shelf life on hcg and is there a way to test if its still good? I mixed some then froze it then thawed it about 2.5 months ago.. It's been in the fridge. I'm through pct so I haven't used it. Just wondering if it has any juice left..?

    Test with a pregnancy test but that won't give you a accurate read on if it lost potency or not I think if I recall right frozen last awhile I mean normal it can last 2 months refrigerated so I'm sure your ok you re refrigerated it tho right? Also you say your through pct so why are u using hcg ?

    Yes it has been in the fridge. I was going to let my friend use it for his cycle. It's been about 2 months so to play it safe I'm going to tell him to get a new batch.

    IMO frozen for 2 months will be fine but wait for a couple more replies.

    The older it gets the less potent it becomes. I wouldn't use it after 60 days

    Hcg needs to be stored at 34 to 46 degrees f. If you freeze it you need to throw it away! 45 to 60 days shelf live depending on brand specs.

    Yes older is less potent.....but who cares if it's 95% at 4 months..still works good...prefer 2 months, 3-4 months is fine....it's pretty easy to tell if it isn't working.
