Calculating Number of HCG Doses
Size of vial / dose you are going to take
ie. 5000iu / 150iu = 33 doses
This doesn’t take into account potency issues which I discuss in this vlog. Sometimes a vial of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin will go bad after about 3 weeks, so obviously then you would really just get 21 doses out of it and then throw the rest away.
Hey guys! HCGchica. I came on today to show those of you who is interested how to calculate the number of doses that you will get out of the given vial of the hormone. So I’ve had a couple of request asking me about this. This is not related to potency, that’s a different thing, this is just for people who wanna know if I have a 5000iu vial HCG or a 2000iu vial of the hormone how many doses am I gonna get out of that.
It’s a simple mathematical equation and I’m gonna actually show you in a minute with a mirror and a calculator on how to do it, but just real quick I’ll tell you. All you do is, let’s just say for instance 5000 IU you put in 5000 and then divide by the dose that you are planning on taking. Now obviously this may end up being different but, you know, sometimes you have to change your dose but at least it will give you a general idea of how many days. So let’s say 150 IU that tends to be a general dose that most people take. Again you will divide 5000 IU and then divide that by 150 if that’s your chosen dosage and that actually equals out to 33. Technically from one 5000 IU vial you should get 33 doses or 33 days of hormone if you are taking 150 IU a day, you know, say for injections.
TIP! IF you are looking for something that has all the hCG info you need in one place, AND a place to daily/weekly track your progress, that’s printable and fillable on your device and reusable, you might want to check out my digital hCG workbook.
Now the one thing to keep in mind with this is that that doesn’t take into account potency issues which I discussed on another vlog, I’ll put the link to that below. Sometimes the hormone with the 5000 IU vial may go bad after 3 weeks or even before in that case you would obviously only get the 3 weeks’ worth of doses. However some had reported that their hormone has stayed good as long as 30 and 40 days. So as long as you test your hormone and you’re aware that it’s still viable and still potent if you were to take 150 IU of the 5000 IU vial of the hormone you would get 33 days out of it. Now I’m gonna go ahead and show you how to do that with a couple of different examples with the calculator. Okay just bear with me while I try to input things on the calculator on this mirror in front of me. I’m trying to see if you could see. So let’s say you have a 5000iu vial of the hormone, so you’re gonna type in the 5000 and then you’re gonna divide that by the dose, so we’ll start with 150iu per day for injections. You equal that out, it says 33 doses, so in that case you would technically get 33 days or 33 doses of injections out of one 5000 IU vial. Now again, you do need to be aware of potency though this doesn’t have to do anything with potency, if your potency were to drop off after, say 3 week that would be 21 doses and then you wouldn’t be able to use the full 33. However I have had a number of people tell me that they tested their hormone after a month or even 40 days and that it was still viable. In that case you might get the whole or every single dose. So that is one example.
Now let’s say you had 5000 IU vial and were gonna divide that now, say you actually take 175 IU. You just input 175. Here you see you would get 28 full doses of the hormone out of a 5000 IU vial if you were taking a 175 IU a day. Now let’s say you are mixing for sublingual and I think in general people who do sublingual end up taking a round of 166iu twice a day so you would just put in your 5000iu and divide that and we put in 166 that will give as a total of 30 doses and since you would be dosing twice a day that means that you would get 15 days’ worth of doses out of that vial of the hormone if you are doing sublingual with that particular dosage.
Now moving on. What if we try 2000iu vial and again you’re gonna take, say 150iu a day injections equal that out, that would give you 13 doses. So 13 days of injections out of a 2000 IU vial if you took 150 IU. Same one 2000 IU vial we’ll divide that this time, say you need 175 IU per day with injections, in that case it will last you 11 days.
So anyway I really hope that that helped out, it is really nice to be able to actually calculate out how many days your hormone will last you especially when you were using the smaller vials, the 2000iu vials, that might seem a little more difficult. Sometimes you calculate how many vials I need for a short round or a long round and that can really help you figure it out more easily. Anyway that just gives you a little more power over planning your round. One more thing I forgot to mention is that if you are planning on testing your hormone, say you’re using a 5000iu vial or what not you may need to account for that too if you end up having to use just a little bit once or twice throughout your round that may take off a dose. So just keep that in mind when you’re planning out your days and how much hormone you need. You can just factor in maybe just a tiny bit for testing your hormone.
