We know the different types of HCG that is available can be confusing... especially with the hundreds of HCG websites all claiming to be the best HCG around.
For this reason, we made a comparison chart for all the different types of HCG to help 'keep it straight' and help individuals make a decision on which type of HCG they want to use for the HCG Diet.
We focus on the three most popular HCG types:
- HCG pre-mixed drops
- HCG self-mixed injections/shots
- HCG self-mixed sublingual
We did not add the non-popular types of HCG such as topical HCG creams, HCG pellets, HCG pills, and oral HCG trojans to the mix in order to keep it simpler.
Note: Sometimes when looking at types of HCG you will see words like HGC, HGC injections / HGC shots, HGC Drops, HGC Diet, etc. The correct term is "HCG", but it is commonly mistaken as HGC.

|Other necessities required for HCG administering||Calibrated dropper built into the bottle (optional oral syringe; request when placing your order)||23-40 syringes with needles (25 – 32 gauge) one single-use shot per day for the minimum of 23 and the maximum of 40 doses per cycle], one 30 cc bacteriostatic water, one 30 cc Sealed vial (amber color recommended by some participants), 1 Box of alcohol pads (buy a box with either 100 or 200 if you anticipate more than one round), 1 Large mixing syringe and mixing needle (ex. 21 gauge) per ampoule||18 cc distilled water or bacteriostatic water or B12 *recommended (used as dissolving agent and filler), 2 cc of alcohol such as vodka or gin (reported to help with absorption), 1 oz. Amber bottle for storing the HCG in the refrigerator, 1 Large mixing syringe and small mixing needle (21 gauge works well) per ampoule of HCG to be mixed, 1 oral syringe|
|HCG Preparation Required||None||You receive the HCG prescription powder in glass ampoules and go through the many steps to mix the HCG solution yourself. You must find some good instructions somewhere and figure out how to make the HCG preparation area sterile, work the different sized syringes, draw the proper amounts of fluids, and properly mix the HCG with the correct ratio of bacteriostatic water for the strength you need to do the round. We do not want the liability of telling you how to mix this type of HCG as it is very complicated and, if done incorrectly, may cause physical harm.||You receive the HCG prescription powder in glass ampoules and go through the many steps to mix the HCG yourself.

|How to Administer this Type of HCG?||3 times per day. Measure .5 cc on your oral syringe, squirt it under your tongue, let sit for 2 minutes, and then swallow any of the HCG drops left.||We CANNOT give you ANY medical advice, but here's the jist: Once per day you will rub top of HCG vial with an alcohol pad, suck up the correct amount of HCG into a 1 cc/ml syringe, pinch the skin where you are injecting the HCG (either in stomach, rear hip area, or leg), stick needle in (avoiding veins and arteries), and inject the HCG into your body.||Twice per day, you measure out the pre-calculated amount of your mixed HCG solution (depending on your HCG dilution), squirt it under your tongue, let it sit there for two minutes, and swallow whatever HCG remains.|
We hope this HCG chart comparing the different types of HCG on the market will help you decide what HCG to use during your upcoming round of the HCG Diet. We understand that with so many different types of HCG on the market today, it can be confusing, but this HCG chart can really aid you in the HCG decision making process as it is very important that you are on the type of HCG that is right for you.
