When to Administer hCG Injections?

When to Administer hCG Injections?

Many people feel intimidated by injections. However, they are a safe and effective way to use hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) while undergoing the hCG diet. If this is your first time using hCG injections, then you might be wondering when to administer the shot. Ideally, you should try to self-inject at the same time every day. However, there is no reason be exact with time. A margin of error such as 30 minutes or an hour is all right.

What Time to Administer an HCG Injection?


Ideally, you must administer your dose of human chorionic gonadotropin in the morning according to Dr. Simeon’s original hCG diet protocol. However, if you work nights then your schedule is different than most people, so you can tailor the plan to fit your own unique needs and metabolism. 


Things to Consider When Using hCG Injections


Here are the crucial factors that you should consider when using hCG injections: 


  • Storage: Keep your injections refrigerated so they stay viable and are ready to be used. If you forget to refrigerate the hCG for six hours or longer then it will no longer be effective and potent so promptly discard the portion.


  • Timing: The perfect time of day to take, human chorionic gonadotropin is in the morning. You can administer the shot right after weighing each AM. To avoid confusion about dosing, you could opt to keep a journal or mark each injection on a calendar at the time you take the dose, so you do not forget. However, remember that the timing of hCG injections is not always written in stone. If you cannot administer hCG in the mornings, then pick a set time at night or in the evening. If you follow the dietary protocol and maintain your food portions, then you will lose weight no matter what time of the day you choose to administer the hCG. 


  • Missed Dose: If you administer the hCG injection in the morning hours then do the best you can to use it at the same time every day. Timing your doses on a 24-hour schedule means that the hCG always remains in your system and stays at therapeutic levels. If you accidentally miss a dose, make sure you give yourself the next scheduled injection at the proper time. Typically, human chorionic gonadotropin will remain in your system for up to 72 hours after your last injection. If you are ever unsure if you have administered an injection or not, then you should ideally wait 24 hours before taking a dose, so you do not accidentally take too much hCG in a 24-hour period. 


HCG Injections are a Successful Weight Loss Tool 


HCG injections, when used in combination with Dr. Simeons’ hCG dietary protocol, are an effective weight loss tool. Human chorionic gonadotropin helps you maintain your muscle mass while only losing fat. The hormone also helps to effectively reset your metabolism and reduce your hunger cravings.
