How to take HCG
There are 3 main ways to take HCG for diet use.
- 1. Shot
- 2. Drops
- 3. Pills
Here at HCG Diet Team we are fans of using drops as they cost less and work great, and most of all you do not need to have a doctor proscribe them to you.
Not only do you not need a doctor to get the drops, but drops cost less than shots and work better than pills, and really I have not heard that great of stories about HCG diet pills so I would suggest you never try them.
With that said, lets cover how you should take each of the methods of HCG.
How to take HCG shots
Most experts will suggest you give yourself the shot on your thigh about right in the middle, halfway between the hip and knee. You will also want to make sure you are injecting this in to your musical tissue to get the best effect.
If you are doing the shots yourself you will need to make sure of a few things before and after you give yourself the shot.
1: Make sure everything is clear! This means the needle, your hands, where you will be giving the shot and that you have good clean gauze.
2: If giving the shot to someone else make sure to wear gloves, just to be on the safe side.
3: Have alcohol wipes around to make sure everything is clean.
Also, there is some risk with giving yourself or someone else shots so it is best to ask a doctor before doing such a thing! You should know that there is a risk of hitting a sciatic nerve with the needle is the shot is given in the wrong place.
The shots should be given 3 to 5 times a week, but this depends on the dose you are taking and what you are taking HCG shots for.
How to take HCG drops
First let’s cover the 2 main different types of drops; you can get water of alcohol based drops.
Water based hcg drops: Most of the time water based drops are cheaper and do not work as well, also the have a very short shelf life and you will have to keep a close eye on them to make sure they are not bad.
Alcohol based HCG drops: Alcohol HCG drops tend to cost more but as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for, and this stands true with HCG drops as well. More people have success with the alcohol based drops and better yet they do not go bad! So if you have some left from a round of the diet you can save them for a later date.
To take the HCG drops you will have to put 10 drops under your tongue and hold it there for about 60 seconds. You will have to do this 3 times a day, and the plus side to doing this, is that it will supply your body with a better flow of HCG over the course of the day.
How to take HCG pills
Taking the pills is very easy but comes at a cost in terms of weight loss. To take the drops you just take them like you would any other pill and do so 2 to 4 times a day. Different brands ask you to take the pills at different times but non the less you are better off not taking them.
