Finding Your Dose of HCG With a Syringe that Has 1 ml/cc per 40 Unit Syringe (from Escrow Refills)
For the moment I’m going to just past my email to the gal who wrote me saying she ran out of her hCG in 11 days when it supposed to last her a month from escrow refills- we discovered that Escrow Refills must have recently started sending some people different syringes than what is commonly used – the following should help you find the dosage you desire with these odd syringes.
Also update on Escrow Refills: I no longer recommend Escrow Refills- they stopped communicating with me a couple years ago despite multiple emails to them, and I don’t keep companies on here who do not communicate with me- makes me too nervous about what’s going on with them and the reliability and follow through. Please see my current recommendations for where to purchase hCG online here:
ALL of my instructions below are based on the knowledge that you would have mixed your hCG 5000iu’s with 5 ml/cc’s of bac water (as I show you how to do here). If you mixed your hCG in a different ratio, do not use this tutorial, as the numbers will be different. If you are reading this before you have mixed your hCG, GOOD! In that case, read further below and I show you a better way to mix your hCG for these odd syringe sizes and also how to dose in that case as well.
Okay so here’s how the syringes for hCG are usually:
- 1 ml/cc syringe will contain 100 units total
- .5 ml/cc syringe will contain 50 units total
- .3 ml/cc syringe will contain 30 units total.
See how that is and how it matches up? Kind of 1 to 1 ratio type deal? Well these weird syringe are NOT like that.
If you have one of the common syringe above, you can find your hCG diet dosage on these normal syringes using this tutorial.
These weird syringes have:
- 1 ml/cc syringe contains 40 units total (when usually it would contain 100 units)
What this means is that you cannot use the general instructions that you find on the web for dosing (including my website) or you end up taking a much higher dosage of hCG than you thought (which means you’ll also probably feel starving), and your vial would run out much faster than usual.
Now again, this math is based on the knowledge that the hCG was mixed in a ratio of 5000ius to 5mls bac water to begin with okay?
Here’s My Math Procession So You Can Check My Work:
So 1 ml/cc = 40 units in this case.
1 ml/cc contains 1000 iu’s of hCG right (if you mixed 5ml’s bac water with 5000iu hCG)
So if you filled one of your syringes all the way up, it would contain 1000ius in that 40 unit syringe.
40 units = 1000 ius’ of hCG then (for your syringe)
1000iu/40units = 25iu’s per unit
If that is so, then,
If you want a dosage of
125 ius then we would divide 125 (dosage desired) by 25 ius per unit = 5 units should be taken.
150 ius dosage would be divide 150 by 25 ius = 6 units should be taken
175 ius dosage, divide 175/25ius = 7 units should be taken
200 ius dosage, divide 200/25ius = 8 units should be taken
225 iu dosage, divide 225/25 ius = 9 units should be taken
250 iu dosage, divide 225/25 iu = 10 units should be taken
So again, to find your hCG dosage on the weird 40 unit = 1 ml/cc syringe:
- 125ius hCG dose = 5 units
- 150 ius dose = 6 units
- 175 ius dose = 7 units
- 200 ius dose = 8 units
- 225 ius dose = 9 units
- 250 ius dose = 10 units
Remember, this is ONLY for the syringes that have 40 units per 1ml/cc – the barrel of your syringe should tell how much the syringe can hold total – here is the syringe I’m talking about:
You May Want to Mix hCG In A Different Ratio With These Special Syringes
After giving this some thought, I realized that trying to inject just 5 units of liquid in your body may be like, too little. It might be fine, but if you haven’t already mixed your hCG yet, you may choose to mix it in a 2:1 ratio instead.
To do this:
- Mix 10 ml’s of bacteriostatic water with 5000iu hCG
If you mix in a 2:1 ratio, the following hCG dosages apply (JUST for the 40 unit = 1 ml/cc syringes):
- 125ius hCG dose = 10 units
- 150 ius dose = 12 units
- 175 ius dose = 14 units
- 200 ius dose = 16 units
- 225 ius dose = 18 units
- 250 ius dose = 20 units

Love your website and thank you so much for being there for us! I’m a little embarrassed because I’m a nurse but I I have one of the weird syringes and I’m trying to adjust my dose. I was trying to do the calculations and I think I need help. I did around a couple years ago and the doctor had me on 25 units and I remember I did drop it down to 20 because I was hungry all the time. But per my thought process it is 100 u/ml=3’ll or is it the .03? And I took 125/ 33=3.7 and
150/33=4.5. Am I even doing it right or getting close I saw the list on the 40 unit syringe I don’t know if it makes a difference that mine is a thousand instead of 5000 but the dilution I would think would be the same ratio. Anyway any help you could give me would be appreciated thank you
I’m so sorry Rosanne but I don’t seem to have the brain power right now to figure this out either- sorry I can’t be of more help!
I bought it in 2000iu vials. Could you tell me how much bacteriostatic water I am suppose to use and how many units I should take in the 40ml syringes to equal 150 to 170 ius? Thank you
Does the ovidac hcg from fast escrow come with the syringes and bac water? Or do I have to purchase separately?
hcgchica's helper says
You will have to order the mixing kit and syringes separately.
I ordered from fast escrow refills hcg kit
And b12 I don’t know how many ampules of b12 I have to mix with hcg please can you help

Do you have a video tutorial for the odd size (40 unit syringes) for the mixing instructions? I understand the dosage delivery, but I may be overthinking the mixing of the powder/bac water when you are saying a 2:1 ratio.
What about airplane travel? Any issues?
Guess I have another question…I have my HCG but found out I need additional syringes…where do you order insulin syringes from and do you need a prescription?
you can purchase these types of supplies alacarte at missourimedicalsupplies.com – hope that helps! Rayzel
I have a question…how does everyone dispose of their used syringes?
You can purchase sharps containers to dispose, or an empty plastic milk jug.
What do you do with the jug full of syringes… I don’t want to throw the jug in the trash…thanks!
You can find sharps disposal guidance for each state here: http://www.bd.com/us/diabetes/page.aspx?cat=7002&id=10284

OMG I did not find your website until almost the very end of phase 2. I really wish I had known about your site before I started – I would have had much more success for sure. After reading this post I adjusted my dosage to 125 – didn’t work, 150 didn’t work but once I tried 130 that was my magic number. I was no longer hungry and it was much easier to stay on track with 500 calories. Before this I was taking 200 IU’s per my doctor’s instructions and was starving all the time – even with an appetite suppressant. I would do fine during the day and lunch but by dinner I wanted to eat everything in sight. Unfortunately because I cheated so much I only lost 7 pounds – my goal was 15. If I decide to go for another round I now know what to do and how succeed. Your website is awesome – every doctor should direct their patients here.
Hi @Alison R | So Chic Life thanks for sharing this! May I add your story to my hCG dosage article here http://hcgchica.com/hcg-dosage-how-should-feel-on-the-hcg-diet-when-you-are-on-the-right-dose/
for others to learn from? It will be anonymous- let me know okay?
And thanks for the kinds words, great to hear! – Rayzel
The first time I followed your directions exactly and ran out in about 30 days (for a 43 day round). I assumed I had done something wrong. This helps immensely! My only concern is that I was never hungry before when doing Round 1. If I suddenly drop down to the conversion rate of 6 units (for the equivalent of 150 IUs), am I going to be starving suddenly? Ideas? I’ll try it tomorrow.
I’m in the middle of Round 2, but after reading this I am a bit concerned. Thank you so much, by the way. I have been searching for an answer to this for awhile. I KNEW I was running out too quickly.
Does it have to bacteriostatic water or can it be normal saline or sterile water instead?
As far as I know it needs to be bacteriostatic water @Amy because the hCG is being stored for a length of time in the vial vs. say taking a one time shot – this is important for preventing bacteria growth.
