    HHCG drops vs pellets dosage?

    Hi all - After struggling with injections because I found I was super sensitive to HCG and had a VERY low dose, I switched to/tried HHCG pellets from Intermountain and they worked very well for me and I have been able to stabilize within 4lbs (I know it’s supposed to be 2, but that didn’t work) and after a long hiatus I am ready to start again. Since I also have a very low dose of the pellets (4 total/day) I have a lot left from my original order I figured I was good to use those, but they expire in December. Trying to think ahead I ordered more and when the new bottle came I discovered that not only were they pink (current ones are white) which is not a big deal, but the sizes are ridiculously inconsistent and ginormous. They are the clown shoes of HHCG pellets. So this is a problem for me, and anyone really who wants a consistent dose so they can be successful. Given this new development I am thinking of once again switching, this time to drops, but that means figuring out the right dose. Again. So I figured I would throw the question out and see if anyone had an idea of what the drops vs pellets dose might be? Or ratio of drops to pellets - like 1 normal/regular sized pellet = 2 drops. Long shot, I know…but I figured it couldn’t hurt to try.

    Well, I just had a total “I am such an idiot” moment. Realized that I can get a probable answer and just need someone to check my math. Intermountain pellets recommend dose is 3 pellets 3x/day and drop dose is 10 drops 3x/day so one should be able to reasonably assume/calculate that 1 pellet = 3.33 drops. Correct? Aside from how to figure out how to get 1/3 of a drop (facepalm), is there anything else I am missing?

    You can dissolve a pellet in an amount of water divisible by 3 to get a third of a pellet, which is what I think you were referring to.

    You can adjust dose as finely as you need to by this method.

    MrsWoody, I wouldn't worry about the tablets that "expire" in December. Those dates are generally very conservative.

    I would wonder what's up with oddly sized tablets of a different color: I would be contacting the supplier and potentially asking for a refund.

    I have been using nasal spray hhcg from InsideOutWellness.net
    Their recommended doasge is 5 sprays per day; so if you wanted a lower dose, you would just use fewer sprays. The advantage of the spray is it doesn't go through your mouth or digestive system, so you don't have to time your dosage around eating or drinking.

    Why do posts/comments keep being cut off?!

    Thank you both! Good to know on the expiration date. I’m always terrified of entering a round and finding out the HCG/hhcg is not effective.

    I did contact them and they said the color change was from added vitamin b12, but that is an ingredient in the “old” version as well. The new/pink version with the huge pellets had ingredients removed, and wheat starch added, so idk whether it’s all attributable to B12 but that’s what they said. As for the size, they said they “are aware of the inconsistencies in pellet size. We temporarily had to change the mold type for the pellets, which changes the amount of binder agent around the HCG dosage. However, we can assure you that the dosage inside the binder sphere is very consistent.” Given the wide range in sizes from minuscule to ridiculously huge and my hard won knowledge of my extreme sensitivity to HCG, I’d rather not take the chance. But they would not allow me to return/refund so I’m out the cost and have an unopened bottle that I guess I have to just toss in the garbage.

    Interesting on the spray. I did read your posts/comments about the spray but it wasn’t available on the site when I was ordering. I will have to file that away as a potential option for the future. I tried the one a day pellets from another supplier but those did not work for me at all, which wasn’t really a surprise. So I guess those need to be tossed too.

    There is some glitch in the forum software, I think. Its affecting some members more than others. I suspect it is at least partly because this forum is using an outdated version of the software. The webmaster has been trying to fix it, but no joy so far.

    You can try accessing from a different device or browser, or just type out your post in an external text editor like notepad to copy/paste. If it doesn't all post, just keep making new replies till you get it all in.
