    Changing the HCG type after a PLANNED Interruption??

    A friend of mine is currently in her second round via injections. She is planning on doing 30 injections,before taking a 7 day planned interruption to attend a training course out of state, then resuming for about another week or so once she's back home.

    She is interested in resuming the round after the interruption using pellets or drops instead of injections due to the cost of another 26 day injection kit.

    Has anyone done this, and what were your results? Do any of the moderators of long-time members have any recommendations one way or the other?

    All feedback will be much appreciated.

    Very good question, so many patients with Diet Doc travel a lot due to work. Most will have about a 2 week supply of tablets and use those on the travel days, however, they do not have any interruption. Since your friend is going to have to pause the HCG for a week, It would be best for her to speak with her doctor, follow his/her recommendation.

    I知 about to switch from NuImage to pellets at Diet Doc because of that great promotion they have going on! I知 currently nearing the end of a 26 day cycle and have decided to buy more and do a long round because I知 a slow loser! Ordering today!

    I知 concerned about buying injections because they seem to hurt more and more each day and I知 not sure if that痴 normal.

    The HCG injections shouldnt feel more than a quick pinch. If it hurts more than that, try pinching the area to numb it a little or rub the area with ice prior to injection.

    If the injections are hurting, perhaps you don't have enough fat left in the original injection site that you started with. This happened during my final round where my tummy was left with not much fat to grab, so I switched to alternating my thighs since they still had plenty left to pinch and inject. I never felt the needle at all. There are you tube videos that show you how to inject in the thighs.

    I know this post is from several weeks ago, but I thought I would offer a few tips here, since I once too, was queasy at the thought of shots. It doesn't both me a bit now, but I also know HOW to avoid any unnecessary pain.

    - First... let the alcohol dry! This is almost always the reason for any real pain when taking Hcg injections. Let it dry naturally (don't blow on it) then inject.

    - Don't inject cold liquid. Draw the Hcg (or B12, or Lipo) and leave it out for a bit or hold it in your hands for a while to bring it to room temperature, rather than injecting it chilled. Injecting cold liquid can be painful.

    - Relax the area you are about to inject in; and don't tense up.

    - Go in fast. Don't insert the needle slowly. The better option is to go in quick, inject slow, then pull out straight and fast.

    - Also, find the spot that is least sensitive for you. I tend to prefer the upper back hip area, however I have recently started switching to the abdomen.

    - Subq is less painful and it has always worked for me. You do have the option for intramuscular as well, however.

    - Ice or numb cream (you can buy this on Amazon or at your local drugstore; CVS etc.) Both are options to numb the area before injecting. With the numb cream; you can apply this for up to an hour beforehand and just leave it. Wipe it off, then alcohol the area and allow to dry naturally. Easy peasy

    Lastly, it's not long before it's "not a big deal" for most people. For me personally, tweezing my eyebrows is more painful than taking an Hcg or lipo injection now, and the entire injection process is somewhat of an automated afterthought before you know it.

    I hope these tips help!

    My best injection tip is one I learned from a children's diabetes board.

    Touch the needle to your skin. If you feel any pain, move the needle over a bit (even a 1/4 inch can be enough) until you find a spot that doesn't hurt. This helps you avoid poking through a surface capillary. Once I started doing this, I never had another injection bruise. The bruises are harmless, but ugly and can take weeks to fade away.

    EDIT: Adding that the area around the navel (always stay about 2 inches away) has the least nerve endings.

    My recent HCG round was with DietDoc. Our site owner has generously arranged for me to earn a small fee if you use my DietDoc or Nu Image Medical link to order your Hcg and supplies.

    I'm going to try this with my injection today. I usually prefer the back upper hip, which I find pretty effortless but I want to try this so I get the hang of it too. Thank you for sharing!!!

    If anyone else has tips that have worked for them, by all means please share and help everyone else. I'll be sure to add any new tips to the page on how and where to inject hcg shots.
