    HCG mixing confusion

    Okay so trying to do things right and running HCG on my test prop cycle. But I have a couple questions.

    My 5000 IU of HCG powder came with 2ml sodium chloride as the diluent, is this okay or do I need the bac water to mix the powder with?

    Also, won't I need a seperate vial to mix these two in? It doesn't look like the tops of either are resealable, or large enough to fit everything inside of. Can I get a vial over the counter somewhere or will I need to hunt one down online?

    Any guidance would be appreciated.

    No they are not re-sealable but empty vials can be found at the top of the screen at ARR. You can mix those two, or use bac water, both work. With 2ml mixed with the HCG you will have to be precise with your measurements as 500iu will be .2ml.

    Cool, thanks... got a vial from arr on the way.

    From what I understand, I'll be okay using the sodium chloride as long as I keep everything very clean and keep it in the fridge? This is for a 10 week cycle.

    What happens if bacteria is able to grow in the vial?
    Will it sting? Will I get an infection? WILL I ****ING DIE??

    If you use a sterile vial, and use safe practices while mixing, you'll have no problems. Just don't clean your finger nails with the needle before using it.

    Wipe the vial and injection site with alcohol pads as well before each use.

    I have used a spare 18g to try to pop a pimple one time because it was under the skin and not surfacing and it was bothering me. Bad idea in case anyone is wondering.

    Got to leave that cystic acne alone. Always seems like a good idea, but no.

    I normally do, I remember trying to dry this one out to no avail so I resorted to drastic measures. The only reason I was desperate was because it was in my ear and I couldn't wear headphones or even put on my motorcycle helmet because it was so swollen and sensitive. Other than that I had to learn my lesson the hard way with a few scars on my back.
