hcg needle size and injection site

I understand I can use a 1/2 29 gauge needle for HCG. Can I stick this in my hip or where is the best place to inject. I always thought I had to use a 1.5 needle intramuscular for this, thank god what a pain in the ass.

an insulin neddle works fine because the HCG doesn’t need to be IM. it’s less painful than a 1.5 and i think it works better.

Is there a “best” time to take the daily injection of HCG, assuming one is doing 500IU daily per Roberts recommendations?

can I use the 1/2 needle in my glute or does it go in the shoulder or does in not matter
