    Some people who experience immunity never recover, and can not use HCG again.

    For those that can recover, taking a year break is usually enough time to reverse the immunity. Sometimes 6 months can be enough time, but a year is safest.

    So in your situation of already pushing past the limit, any arbitrary waiting time is going to be just a guess. Your report of not being able to find the right dose at the end is a little concerning, because that is what happens when immunity hits...no dose adjustment fixes the hunger and poor losses. But immunity hunger is usually strong enough that you really can't force yourself continue on more than a couple of days. So at the end of your round you would be assessing hunger intensity to determine if the slow losses you were experiencing was an immunity issue.

    Unfortunately, there is no precedent for how to follow a 60 dose round that would suggest a clear direction here. My best advice, would be to assume you did not hit immunity this time, take the break you are thinking about and when you restart, do any further rounds with homeopathic hhcg, which doesn't create immunity.

    I don't have personal experience with hhcg to go by, but people report that hhcg negates hunger and allow for good stabilization just like RX HCG. It is a little more inconvenient, though.
    Thanks so much for the detailed response! Very interesting. I'll definitely go through the threads to educate myself on hhcg. I'm not sure how to convert say 24 units to drops, but I'm sure that's been discussed plenty times in the hhcg section.

    Dosing is completely different, so no need to convert. For hhcg, you basically start with the recommended dose on the hhcg package. Drops are usually 3 drops, 3X day, which is on the low side of normal. And then you can adjust from there if needed. Pellets are dosed differently by different providers.

    Same dose for men and women?

    Yes, dose is the same regardless of gender, age, weight or activity level.

    Just thought I would add what has happened to my blood pressure while on the HCG diet.

    My first day, blood pressure was 186 / 116 which is stage 2 hypertension, bordering on emergency level. I was having headaches and dizzy spells nearly everyday for months before starting this diet. I was not on any medication for blood pressure, but was likely headed that way.

    Fast forward to 18 days in, my blood pressure is optimal at 116 / 54 this AM and I haven't had a dizzy spell or headache since Day 2 of this diet. For me, it has been an absolute gamechanger. This just my experience, I give no medical advice at all.

    Great report Mitch... The HCG diet does tend to drop blood pressure. Its a common side effect to the point where we warn those with low blood pressure to be on the look out for it. I think a big part of that is the elimination of a lot of processed foods with high sodium content.

    Also you've had a dramatic weight loss in a short time, so that is also part of the reason for the drop. Many people are able to get off blood pressure medications just by weight loss alone.

    The natureisis of fasting, during P2 especially, also causes less water retention; is usually accompanied by lower blood pressure.

    Blood pressure tends to go down when there is less insulin stimulated, less carbs eaten. High blood pressure is a warning sign of possible insulin resistance.
