    Water for HCG

    You guys ever use tap water?

    I called the pharmacies and I can't get sterile water OTC. So I'm thinking of grabbing some distilled water, dasani or whatever, running it through a whatman filter, and then using that with the benzyl alchohol to make my HCG .

    Sound like a plan? Am I missing anything?

    While on the topic of HCG, totally cool to use this stuff while on AI's and dostinex? My boys have only slightly atrophied, so I'd like to nip it in the bud and keep them healthy for the remainder of the cycle.

    I would just use B-12 injectable to mix.

    Can you elaborate? You're saying, use 99% injectable b12 (hydroxocobalamin) 1% benzyl alcohol, and then the HCG ? You didn't actually say that, but It's not clear to me what to do based on what you said.

    I could really use a step-by-step reference here. I'm sure there is a link somewhere?

    Thanks for the help bra.

    First video I found says not to mix them because HCG needs to be refrigerated, and B12 should not be refrigerated.

    Sooo......?

    When you mix your hcg just use the b-12 instead of bac water.

    2ML injectable b12. 5000iu HCG . Each .1ml is now 250iu hcg. Just like that?

    Can anybody address the b12 refrigerator issue?

    Some people recommend keeping the mixture in a syringe in the fridge, then using a new pin each time. Is this necessary? I have some spare vials so prob will use them anyway.

    Injectable b-12 should be refrigerated as well as your hcg . You can take more b-12 separate from what you get in your hcg. Hcg dose should be 250iu 2x per week throughout cycle.

    P.S. You should always use a fresh pin.

    I always use injectable B-12 to reconstitute my hCG .
    Refrigerating B-12 is fine.

    K. Found some conflicting information, but a few sources say that B-12 should be refrigerated.

    And since you guys have done this I can assume no harm right?

    So let's go with that assumption. Where then do I buy refrigerated B-12? Amazon has injectable, but it's at room temperature, and would probably sit in the summer sun on my porch for hours.

    So how do I get refrigerated injectable B-12?

    Hit me.

    Still newb.

    Please hold my hand.

    Op I just make my own bacteriostatic water. I just buy Benzyl alcohol from our site sponsor AR-R at the top right corner and mix it with sterile water. For 10mls the ratio is .09ml of B.A. to 9.1ml of distilled water.(easiest way is 10ml distilled water to .1ml B.A) also I would suggest buying a filter and running the distilled water through it.

    Wow, amazon does have injectable B-12 - Vet Grade for live stock.

    I suppose that would work, but I use human grade from else where.

    probably easiest for you to just do what michael said.

    I dont think there is such a thing as "refrigerated b-12"

    You can choose to refrigerate it or not, but if you want your hCG to last you better refrigerate it once reconstituted.

    Okay so back to the original question then. I have the benzyl alcohol from the recommended source.

    So then run some distilled water through a whatman filter, then add the BA in correct proportion, and constitute HCG and fridge. Simple enough. You guys are recommending 10% BA in the solution, I've read elsewhere to use 1%. That's a pretty big difference. Can you guys educate me?

    Michael 30, you mentioned using sterile water, but I can't actually get "sterile" (I'm assuming auto-claved) water OTC. So whatman filtering distilled water is the best I can do.

    Drewz, can you PM a good place to look for that human grade injectable B12?

    props bros

    What I mean is you should probably refrigerate it all.

    I don't refrigerate my ampules of B12 until I open them and mix them with hCG , i just keep them in a cool dark place.

    Op you need to use .09ml of B.A. (which is actually 9% but you were close enough with 10%) and 9.1ml of distilled water. Just google how to make bacteriostatic water. You'll find the same instructions I gave. Also I use distilled water. I suppose if you wanted you could just boil some water yourself if you wanted to make it sterile. But If you do I would use a clean, new pan and google how long it needs to boil to become sterile. (Personally I'd still filter it, but that's just me)

    I used distilled water and BA, it was hard to get the proportion exact with my 3ml syringes. Any danger in having 10% ish? If anything I went sort of towards 8 to 9% ish, so that the BA wouldn't sting so much.

    Also, what should this stuff look like? Water for HCG-img_1247.jpg
