    Bacteriostatic Water or Sterile Water for HCG?

    I am leaning towards the bacteriostatic water for the anti-bacterial properties to be safe. But, sterile water is so much cheaper, and I wasn't sure if it was that huge of a deal for subcutaneous injections of HCG . Then again, since you are perforating the skin, it probably is.

    I'm on the fence with these two, bacteriostatic here: https://www.amazon.com/Hospira-Mixin...9649757&sr=8-3

    Or the sterile water here: https://www.walmartpetrx.com/p-7591-...oaArVsEALw_wcB

    As you can see, the sterile water is much cheaper for a far larger quantity. But, not sure if it's risky or not. Thoughts?

    Bacstat or nothing. Once mixed the bacstat will store safely sterile water would be very risky imho.

    Bacteriostatic water stops bacteria from forming which can be stored for a longer period of time..
    I do know that for some hGH, sterile water comes with it. I have used both. I feel more comfortable with bac water... just by definition.

    Bacstat or gtfo. Would you use gear made without Benzyl alcohol? If so, you’ve probably enjoyed more than your share of infections.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. Only did about 5-6 cycles back in the day, but never had an infection yet and don't plan to get one. I'll definitely be using the bacstat. Not going to risk it just to save a few bucks, lol.

    Bacteriostatic water.

    If cost is an issue and you need plenty, make your own.

    I bought 60ml (2 ozs) of benzyl alcohol for (IIRC) $10. If I make bac water from it at 1% concentration, that means 60ml is good for 6000ml -- six liters or about a gallon and a half -- of bac water.

    Sterile water runs me $10-$12 a liter at local brick and mortar stores (Wally World, Walgreens, anything that starts with a "W"). I go through 10ml of hCG every five weeks so a liter (which is 10ml a hundred times over) is enough to make 500 weeks worth of reconstituted hCG, almost 10 years.

    When you make your own the most expensive part is the sterile glassware but I'm still spending less than $20 per month in total, including glassware, to make reconstituted hCG.

    Yep. Presealed vials were my biggest cost, but still sooo much cheaper than the prices I see for 10ml of "store bought" BW. Shoot, there's enough profit in it that some UGLs have BW on their lists now.
