The HCG injections are the preferred route for HCG administration. With the injectable method, complete and rapid absorption is guaranteed. If you've chosen to complete the HCG diet through the means of giving an injection each day, it's important to know how to inject HCG and properly give yourself the injection safely and effectively. Listed below are a few simple steps to help ensure that you are taking the medication correctly.
Step 1) Once you have your loaded HCG syringe ready to go, pinch a small area of subcutaneous (fat) tissue between your fingers with your non-dominate hand, and wipe with alcohol.
- The HCG injection can essentially be given anywhere on the body that fat tissue is located. The abdomen is a common injection site primarily because it is easy to see when giving an injection to yourself. The injection site can be rotated to a different side or location if needed for comfort.
Step 2) While the skin is pinched between your fingers, inject the small needle all the way into the skin at a 90 or 45-degree angle.
- Make sure to focus carefully what you are doing so that you avoid sticking your fingers by mistake. (Much like a dart enters a bull's eye).
Step 3) Once the needle has gone completely through the skin, push the plunger in to inject the medication.
Step 4) Remove the syringe from the skin; keeping it straight, as it was when it was entered into the skin initially.
Step 5) A small gauze, cotton ball, or tissue can be used to gently wipe the area if needed.
