    I have encountered people from the HCG community asking questions about how to mix their HCG. So here’s a guide on how to do it and I’ll discuss some of the minor difference between the kits that some company provides.

    Most kits include the following:

      1. Vial of HCG
          • May be 5000 IU, 10000IU, 12000IU, etc.
      2. Mixing Syringe
      3. Mixing Vial
          • Some company provides this with the kit while others don’t. Whether you have a separate mixing vial or not is fine.
      4. Disposable 1mL syringes (or insulin syringes)
          • You need to have enough syringes to cover your entire round. Each syringe is to be used only once.
      5. Bacteriostatic Water
            • Please do not substitute this with Sterile Water for Injection or with Normal Saline. They will not be able to keep your HCG solution sterile for multiple uses.

    Generally, the doctor or company that supplied your HCG will instruct you on how to mix your HCG. Otherwise, the 1:1 ratio usually works well. So for a 5000 IU vial, you dilute it to make a 5mL solution, 10mL for a 10000 IU vial, 12mL for a 12000 IU vial, etc.

    Here are the steps:

    1. If you don’t have a mixing vial, you may use the vial of the bacteriostatic water to mix and store you HCG. Bacteriostatic water is usually supplied in 10mL vials. If you have this type of bacteriostatic water, discard the amount of bacteriostatic that you don’t need. For example, if you will be using 5mL bacteriostatic water to dilute your 5,000 IU HCG, you need to discard 5mL (10mL minus 5mL) bacteriostatic water from the vial. Do this by first injecting 5mL of air into the bacteriostatic water using your mixing syringe. Afterwards, it will now be easier to draw out 5mL of the water, then discard the water. You now have 5mL left in your vial.
    2. Now, we’re going to dilute our HCG powder. With your mixing syringe, draw out 2mL of air from your HCG vial.
        • This done is to avoid your HCG solution from leaking out of the punctured hole once you incorporate the bacteriostatic water into your HCG vial. If you skip this part, you may lose some HCG through the punctured hole due to the increased pressure in the vial.
        • Rule: For every mL of liquid you will put in, you first withdraw air equivalent to the amount of liquid you will put in. For every amount of liquid you draw out, you put in that much air. This way, the pressure in the vial will be kept stable.
    3. After expelling the air you drew out from the HCG vial, use the same mixing syringe to draw up 2mL of bacteriostatic water and add this to your HCG vial.
    4. Mix your HCG by rolling the vial gently between your palms until all the powder has dissolved.
    5. Using your mixing syringe, draw out the HCG solution from the vial and transfer it to your mixing vial. Add enough bacteriostatic water to your mixing vial to complete your required dilution amount. So if you need to dilute the HCG with 5mL of bacteriostatic water, just add 3mL since your HCG is already diluted with 2mL. Again, gently roll the vial between your palms to let the solution mix properly.
        • If you do not have a mixing vial, you may use your bacteriostatic water vial which has 3mL of bacteriostatic water left. Incorporate your 2mL HCG solution into the bacteriostatic water vial to make a total of 5mL solution. Roll the vial between your palms gently.
    6. You may now use your HCG then store the remaining solution in the refrigerator.
