What are HCG Injections?

Since you are reading this, we are going to assume that you already know the purpose of HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) and the benefits that it can have on your body. On this page, we want to talk a little bit about what HCG injections are and how they are administered to a person.

How is HCG Administered?

While you can purchase HCG drops, most people opt for HCG injections as the hormone tends to get into your system quicker (you are injecting it straight into your blood stream). In addition to this, it seems to be far more potent. This means that you can enjoy more benefits when you use HCG injections over HCG drops.

The HCG will normally be injected under your skin. However, in certain situations it may also be injected directly into your muscle. It is going to be much the same as if you have any other injection, although we are willing to bet that you will be using HCG more frequently.

Where is HCG administered?

Most people will have their first HCG injections at their local doctor’s surgery. The doctor or the nurse can administer it for you. However, if you are planning on using this hormone a lot, then going to your doctor each time will not only be costly but also inconvenient. This is why many people learn to inject HCG at home.

If you are going to inject HCG at home, then it is important that you learn how to do it properly. Talk to your doctor if you are unsure. You will also find plenty of video guides online which you can use. Remember; if you do not inject the HCG properly, then not only is it going to not work, but you also run the risk of putting yourself in danger. Of course, you will also want to ensure that you dispose of the syringes properly.

Are there any issues with HCG injections?

In most cases, there should be no issues with HCG injections. Most people suffer no reaction at all. However, you should always be on the lookout for the following. If you experience any of these after your HCG injections, then it is important that you talk to your doctor as soon as you can;

  • Pain
  • Warmth
  • Redness
  • Numbness
  • Tingling in either your arms of your legs
  • Confusion
  • Extreme dizziness
  • Severe headache

All of these symptoms could indicate that something has gone wrong with the injection process. It could mean that you have a blood clot. If you do not have the issue dealt with quickly, then you may be running the risk of serious illness or even death.

When should you not use HCG injections?

You should not use HCG injections if you have had an allergic reaction to the hormone before. You should also avoid using the HCG if you have one of the following:

  • An issue with your thyroid
  • Ovarian cyst
  • Premature puberty
  • Cancer
