Ok so I just got my first script of hcg filled and the Pharmacist has me confused. Admittedly, it’s an easy feat.
First, the mixing… I have 10000iu. 10ml of the water and the dry powder. I asked for a mixing needle and he just picked up one he wants me to inject with. They are 25g 3ml 1". I take it need withdraw 3ml of water and inject in powder three times and once more with 1 ml?
Second, I told him I use insulin needles for test cyp in my shoulder. He said I shouldn’t do that? I said I was going to use them for the hcg in my stomach and asked if .5ml is equal to the 500hcg dose prescribed?
He says (and it also happens to say in the pregnyl info sheet) that I inject hcg IM not subq. Said I should go in the shoulder with .5 with needles he gave me. 25g 1" 3ml.
I was going to use .5ml of the 29g 1/2" 1ml insulin needles and go in the stomach.
Have I got the mixing right and which method is correct for injecting? Help and thanks.
