    Go with what your doctor told you. You were prescribed it then?

    well how many mcg's do you have? I would say that 500mcg's/day would be pretty high.

    Do you know how many mcg's per ml are there? This is being prescribed as a form of HRT right? More info on your background would be useful.

    HCG is usually measured in IUs not mcg. Much like Insulin and GH are typically measured in IU.

    Swale protocol states 250-500IU anywhere from twice weekly to EOD. HCG does not last long enough to inject only once a week. Not every doctor is an expert on the use of such drugs, in fact very very very few are. Heck, the majority still tell their patients to take ridiculous dosing protocols like 5000IU once a week; pretty much guaranteeing they destroy tons of Leydig cells casuing permanent damage.

    If you're doctor said 500IU once a week, it would be better to do 250IU twice a week instead. It's the same amount per week but you are splitting it up and therefore getting a more steady level.

    just to make it clear - Null is stating an opinion. others disagree with swale's approach, and i am one of them. 2x/week dosing has always been a recipe for quick desensitization to HCG, for me at least. by the second or third week, it just doesnt do much....but when i'm off it for 2-3 weeks and shoot 500IU, it very obviously works. i'm not saying my way is right, just that there are divergent views on dosing.

    PS. he gave you HCG before testosterone to ascertain if your testes are sensitive to LH [mimetics]. if they are, you might not need test to get in the normal range.

    thanks for all the replys. good info. i took 500 iu's yesterday. i just wanted to get started on it for now. i feel so drained and just weak as hell. he said he will leave me on it for a couple of months if it makes me feel better and re-test my levels. he will, but wants to follow the strict guidelines before putting me on test. he said the dea is going crazy right now over it. even when i went to get my script filled for the hcg the pharmasist manager told me dea just gave them an audit on their hormone stock as well. anyway doc wont be in till tues. ill ask him then to clarify dosage.
