Hi guys.

I've just got some HCG. 5000IU and mixed it with 1ml BAC.

Im supposed to inject 500iu 3x week, so that 0.1ml each time I inject.

My issue is, I just tried this with a 1ml barrel and small grey needle and after I 'tried' to inject it felt like nothing happened. I then pulled the plunger back and I saw nearly all the 0.1ml was still there. Must have sat in the small void at the end of the barrel.

How do you guys accou t for this and actually properly dose such a tiny amount?

The vial it came in I think hold 2.5ml so should I dilute it more so its easier to see and inject and the amount wasted is less concentrated.

Or do I need a different needle, I see insulin mentioned but never used them. Thanks.

I always put in 2ml of BAC water.

Therefore each tick on the insulin syringe is 25iu.
