How to Mix HCG – 5000 IU & 10000 IU HCG

If you are ready to start the HCG diet, it’s important to learn how to properly mix your HCG for the right potency. I’ve provided a video and written instructions to make this process as simple and easy as possible. It really is quite straight forward, so don’t let it intimidate you when getting started.


Learn How to Mix HCG – 5000 & 10000 IU HCG

To mix HCG in 5,000 IUs, you will need to add 5ml of bacteriostatic water with a 5 or 10ml syringe. Add 2ml of was into your HCG vial containing your HCG lyophilized powered. When the syringe is removed, tip the vial on its side and gently roll it back and forth in your palms for a few seconds to mix it. DO NOT SHAKE THE HCG TO MIX IT!

The HCG vials pictured above are targeted for people taking HCG in smaller daily amounts over longer time periods, like those of us on the HCG protocol.

While the “5000iu and 10000iu” vials can also be geared towards people taking a larger weekly HCG dosage, like those who take steroids for example or use HCG for HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy). There is absolutely no difference between one type of HCG and the other because the HCG powder is still “purified injectable grade” HCG. The only difference is the dosing and frequency of dosing. In order to dilute the HCG, inject about 1-2ml of bacteriostatic water into the tiny vial in order to liquidize it.

Then you can move it into a larger vial with a syringe. Inject the 1-2ml into the tiny vial with the syringe without touching the sides of the vial to keep it sterile. If you do contact the side of the vial, either wipe it with an alcohol wipe or get a new syringe before drawing the remaining bacteriostatic water out of the vial. While the HCG is soaking into the bacteriostatic water, draw out the remaining 3-4ml and add it to the 5ml+ mixing vial as well.

Now that it has been at least a minute or two, use the syringe to draw out the small amount of mixed HCG. All of the other sizes of ordering HCG mix the same way, but the numbers will change. Just remember that all of the mixing ratios are based on 1ml of bacteriostatic water for every 1,000 IU of HCG.

I recommend that you purchase one of our complete advanced HCG kits which will contain 5000 IU or 10,000 IUs vials of HCG which are designed 25-day, 50-day cycle, 75-day cycles and beyond. However, instead of buying the HCG in one 10,000 IU vial, we recommend that you order a quantity of two (2) 5,000 IU vials. In larger vials like the ones pictured below or purchase five 2,000 IU vials. We also recommend you take 200 IUs per day for the HCG dosage over a 50-day cycle.

Some common sizes, for example, are listed at the bottom of this page.

Glossary and Terms

Ampule: The size listed is the IU amount of HCG.
Solvent: The amount of solvent in cc’s you will need for injections. The solvent you use can be either bacteriostatic water or sterile water.
Dosage: The amount of HCG mixture in cc’s that you will give yourself per injection, whether intramuscular or subcutaneous.
Injection yield: the number of injection days you’ll get if you use these proportions.

1cc = 1ml (some manufactures supply in cc’s and some in ml’s)
IU = International Unit
1cc = 100 IUs
cc = cubic centimeters
ml = milliliter
HCG Life Expectancy

5,000 IU mixtures at 200 IU HCG injections per day will last for 25 days and a 2,000 IU vial at 200 IU HCG injections should last for about 10 to 12 days.

Mathematically a 10,000 IU vial would last for 50 days at 200 IUs, however, freshness is a concern as HCG typically only lasts about 30 days after it is mixed. The 10,000 IU vials are great for couples that are doing the HCG protocol together.

Common Sizes:
5,000 IUs- Mix the 5,000 IUs of HCG with 5ml of bacteriostatic water the same way the rest of the directions state for 5,000 IUs above.

Just substitute the numbers in the directions, and replace 5ml with 2ml and 5,000 IUs with 2,000 IUs, etc.
2,000 IUs – Mix the 2,000 IUs of HCG with the 2ml of bacteriostatic water the same way the rest of the directions state for 5,000 IUs above.

Just substitute the numbers in the directions, and replace 5ml with 2ml and 5,000 IUs with 2,000 IUs, etc. 10,000 IUs – Mix 10,000 IUs with 10ml of bacteriostatic water/solvent…

Again, it is all the same as the ones above, but substitute the numbers; 5ml with 10ml, 5,000 IUs with 10,000 IUs, etc.

How to Mix HCG Drops

If you are ready to start the HCG diet but the thought of injections intimidates you, don’t worry. You can mix HCG drops in both 5000 and 10000 IUs for sublingual use. These are known as HCG drops. You can also buy premixed HCG drops to remove the fear and confusion altogether. But not to worry – this video and blog will cover everything you need to know to mix HCG drops on your own.

Get out your alcohol, vial of 5000 iu’s of hCG, Sodium chloride (“wound wash”) or Bacteriostatic water and clean the tops as Have a clean storage container to store your mixed drops for use. I recommend a baby food jar which is covered in foil. Since it is not very deep, it makes it easy to reach the bottom of the container. Make sure you have washed it thoroughly in hot, soapy water. Your solution is not going to be sterile because it is not going to be stored in a sterile vial, but you want to keep it as free from contaminants as possible. Lastly, you will need a baby syringe or a 1 cc syringe that does not have a needle attached. Frequently a pharmacy will give you one of these for free if you ask.

If you’re using wound wash, discharge some of this into a clean cup, and draw it up into your mixing needle until you have added 13 cc’s of this into your storage container. Make sure you don’t have air bubbles in your syringe. Then take a final 2 cc’s and add it to your hcg vial, as I described in the other thread. Gently roll the vial to mix, and then add it back to your sterile container. You now have 5000 iu’s of hcg mixed with 15 cc’s of fluid, for a mixture of 333 iu’s per cc. Your starting dose will be .5 cc’s, which will be 166 iu’s.

How to dose HCG drops

Do not eat or drink anything for 15’ before and after you dose. Draw up .5 cc’s with your dosing syringe, and squirt the mixture under your tongue. Hold it there for a good 5 minutes, then swallow what is left.

You will dose 2x/day, approximately 12 hours apart. If you’re off by an hour or two on some days, don’t worry about it, but we do recommend being as consistent as possible to ensure the HCG remains consistent in your blood stream.

5) For those who have difficulty holding that much liquid under your tongue, you can mix your solution more concentrated so that you can use a smaller volume. (this is what I do). In this case, add a total of 9 cc’s of fluid (first 7 cc‘s, followed by 2 that you add to your hcg vial). Your dosing amount will be .3 cc’s instead of .5. This will still give you the same starting dose of 166 iu’s per dose. For anyone using liquid hcg, you will subtract one cc from the amount of total liquid that you mix with.

The HCG diet requires focus, but if you are serious with losing weight, this is the fastest and safest option to get real results. Before you get started, check out my YouTube playlist of videos on how to get started on the HCG diet.
