    Hcg question

    I ordered some hcg ( generic pharm grade ) and am confused how to mix this where Im getting 500ui in each shot. I added 5ml of leftover bacterialstatic water to it to make it my typical mixture. My question is this package comes with another vial of 1ml of sodium chloride .anyone know how I would get 500iu if I were to mix this 1m with the 5000ui powder?
    Sorry if that was a lot of mush mosh writing. Thanks guys

    Insulin or TB syringes are what is normally used, they are 1mL.
    5000IU powder + 5mL of BAC water = 1000IU/mL; So, .5 on a 1mL syringe = 500IU
    or
    5000IU powder + 1mL of Sodium Chloride (or BAC water) = 5000IU/mL; So each .1 on 1mL syringe = 500IU

    Thank you so much quest! For real. Will it be the same potency either way ?

    Yes, the only difference is the amount you would inject. I'd favor a dilution of 2.5mL and inject .25 (on the syringe, = 500IU).

    I would do that but packaged comes with only a vial of the 5000hcg vial powder and the vial of 1ml sodium Chloride.

    Thanks for helping out quest . Have a great night

    They are assuming it's a 5000 iu single shot.

    If you fixed 1ml water with 5000iu powder. 1 unit on a insulin syringes (1 100th of a ml/cc ) would be 500iu

    To concentrated to effectively meter out.

    K if you mixed 1ml water with 5000iu hcg powder. Your 500iu dose would be 1/100th of a cc or "1 unit" on a insulin pin.

    Just for comparison, the amount of gear left in a needle tip when injecting with a 1.5" needle lenth, is about 15-20 units of oil.

    Now imagine trying to fill a pin with that tiny amount of hcg even close to accurately.

    I prefer my hcg to be 5000 units powder to 2.5ml of water

    Giving me 25 units = 500 units of hcg, or simpler, 2000units/more

    I prefer a simpler approach. I dilute to 1000 IU/mL

    For 5,000 IU vials, I mix in 5 mL dilatant. This gives me a solution that is 1000 IU/mL. Therefore, 0.1 mL (10 units) = 100 IU HCG. This makes calculations much easier. If I want 500 IU, I simply use 0.1 X 5 = 0.5 mL, which is a reasonable amount to inject subcutaneously.

    For 10,000 IU, I use 10 mL.

    The big thing here is to remember your volumes. Insulin is measured in units that, like said above, is 0.1mL = 10 Unit. Many insulin syringes come in 30 units (0.3mL) and 50 units(0.5mL) depending on how much insulin the diabetic commonly takes. If you want to base this all on 100 units, be sure to ask for the 100 unit or 1 mL syringes and all the math will be easier. There are sizes to the syringes (both length and width/gauge) also and if you are buying from a pharmacy, know your volumes and needle sizes too. I like how Youthful55guy worded it, the math is easier like that (0.5 mL for 500 IU's).

    Just my $0.02.

    .1ml = 10 units
