Thread: Headache

  1. #1


    Hey All I need help! Just started HCG and the first day had a headache, is that normal? Thought maybe dosage was too high, 17.5 ? Thanks in advance. Anna

    Hi, I'm a newbie to the site and this is my second round. My first round was 7 years ago so it feels like being new and on a first round! From everything I have read on here 17.5 is too high, they suggest starting at 125 iu which would be 12.5. I get headaches a lot so I am not sure if the headaches I have been having are from the diet or my normal headaches! Make sure you are getting enough water (the cause of my headaches, I don't feel thirst so I forget to drink and am often in a slight dehydrated state).

    I had a headache the first week. It's pretty common. They say it's detox related

    Headaches the first few days are common. Some say it's detox, but I just think it's the hcg. Either take some aspirin/Tylenol/ibuprofen or just wait it out. I don't think the headache is caused by too high a dose. Headaches just happen the first few days.

    As for dose, the best dose to start with is either 125 or 150 iu. Do you know how your hcg was mixed? That will tell you what your dose of 17.5 is.

    It can be rather overwhelming when you first start, but exciting too, because this is the last time you have to see that high number on the scale. HCG can get you to your goal, and you are on your way!
