    Question I accidentally left my vial of HCG out.

    I just got a brand new vial of HCG on Tuesday 10/11. My whole 43 day supply comes from the diet doc's office already mixed and in one vial.

    On Wednesday after I took my morning injection I forgot to put the vial back into my refrigerator. It was almost 10 hours later when I returned home to find I'd left it lying on the bed all day. My bedroom was room temperature.. (not too hot or cold) and the vial was in a white paper bag so it hadn't been in any direct sunlight. I am PRAYING my HCG is still good. I popped it back in the fridge and have continued using it as if nothing happened but in the back of my mind I'm a little scared that it might have been weakened or compromised.

    Do any of you know if HCG is ruined or spoiled after being left out all day?

    Thank you!

    I've done that before and it was fine. If your using one vial for 43 days it may lose it's potency. It's usually recomended to only use one vial for two weeks. If after 2-3 weeks your hunger increases I would make sure and contact your clinic.

    Hi, I've wondered about the same thing. I left mine out one day for a few hours. It was room temperature. Seemed to me it lost potency. . .could have been in my head. I was hungry after that.

    From Pounds & Inches:
    "Once HCG is in solution it is far less stable. It may be kept at room-temperature for two to three days, but if the solution must be kept longer it should always be refrigerated. When treating only one or two cases simultaneously, vials containing a small number of units say 1000 I.U. should be used. The 10 cc. of solvent which is supplied by the manufacturer is injected into the rubber- capped bottle containing the HCG, and the powder must dissolve instantly. Of this solution 1.25 cc. are withdrawn for each injection. One such bottle of 1000 I.U. therefore furnishes 8 injections. When more than one patient is being treated, they should not each have their own bottle but rather all be injected from the same vial and a fresh solution made when this is empty."

    Hope that allays some fears
