HGC ui measurement

# Thread: HGC ui measurement

1. ## HGC ui measurement

I'm doing some research and I see HGC measured in iu instead of mg's or g's. Can someone explain this to me? google searching has failed me as iu abbreviated means a lot of different crap.

Thanks

2. You will most likely purchase either 5000iu or 1500iu both come powdered in a vial with 1ml of sterile water. When mixed a 5000iu vial will yield 5000ius/1ml, this means if you want to shoot 500ius you will have to measure out 0.1ml.

Now most insulin syringes measure in ius,this is where some people become confused, for example a 1ml insulin syringe will have 100 marks down the side usually going 5,10,15,20, etc.. 0.1ml of HCG is measured to the 10 mark on the syringe this provides you with a 500iu shot.

Many people, including myself choose to add more sterile water diluting the HCG and providing more overall volume of solution, if you take the previous example of the 5000iu vial and add a further 4ml of sterile solution you will still have 5000ius of HCG but it will be 5ml of solution hence 500iu of HCG now becomes a 0.5ml shot or the 50 mark on the insulin syringe.

I hope this has helped you

ROAST

3. ius = international untis, but roast gave you the best concept of hcg. good post roast.

4. MIXING HCG
Break open both amps. Then with a 25g pin, draw up the 1ml of 'solvent' (which is bacteriostatic water) and inject into the amp with powder. It will mix to a clear solution. Draw this solution up with the same 25g pin and inject into a sterile vial. Be sure to wipe the top of the sterile vial with an alcohol pad first.

Now draw 4 ml of bacteriostatic water (again wiping the top of the bacteriostatic water vial with a alcohol pad before drawing) and inject into the sterile vial. You will now have a 1ml = 1000iu solution. Use slin pins and inject sub-q. With this concentration, 25 on the slin pin equals 250iu's, 50 equals 500iu's etc.
Refrigerate the vial and use as needed. It will last reconsituted for 60 days.
Note: Injected subcutaneous at the navel

5. ^^thats what i do i use 4 / 5,000ius and add bac h2o in a 20ml vial with 20ml of bac and gives me 1,000 ius per cc. but i go im it seems to work better for me. i dont notice the subq as much. but thnx dg for telling us how long hcg lasts in fridge i wasnt sure i thought between 60 - 90 days but now ill mark it.

6. Very informative thank you.

So for an 8 week cycle at the recommended 1000iu a week, how much should I buy? Since the 1000iu a week is after you dilute it in water. How much of the powder should I get from my boy?

Thanks!

you need 2/ 5,000ius of hcg to take 1,000ius wk. but i would do only 250ius 2xswk unless your running a ton of gear. but get the 2/ 5,000ius i said and make a 10cc or ml vial out of it. buy it at a sponsor like cheap pinz, the vial i mean buy a 10ml sterile sealed vial.

8. Ugh, I hate amps. Just get it in vials.
