    I have had good luck with the abdominal area subq for my hcg. But wouldnt mind trying shots for awhile somewhere else....I was thinking the thigh perhaps. Anyone use this area instead of the abdomen for HCG shots?

    How long does it take for you to feel the hcg work when you shoot in the abdomen? What dosage are you shooting?

    I shoot in the front of the thigh halfway down in medium fatty skin. I have found that where I shoot HCG affects the release. I have felt different shooting IM, in medium fatty skin, and very fatty skin. When I shoot in very fatty skin I tend to feel the HCG later in the day towards bedtime, and it interferes with my sleep.

    I do the hcg in my thigh because I don't feel it at all in my belly. I feel going though fat takes longer to get into the blood stream.

    No. Simply the fact that the belly is fatter than the front of the thigh, will cause it to take longer to release.

    Why not just shoot it in the upper buttocks or shoulder (IM) ??

    Mike,

    The above study that you posted confirms that there is a delay in peak serum drug concentration with SubQ HCG shots. As I mentioned in my post above, when I have injected HCG into very fatty skin in the past, I ended up feeling the effects of the HCG later in the day towards evening (BTW, this is only 100iu HCG). After experimenting with various skin "thicknesses", namely very thin skin on the thigh, medium fatty skin on the thigh and very fatty skin on the thigh, I found that the medium fatty skin gave me a release that "felt" better.

    Shooting in the stomach or buttocks would really slow the release of the HCG. My purpose for the HCG is to feel the effects the same day because it is part of my TRT regimen which is 25mg T cream and 100iu HCG every day.

    Yep we don't mean the pain of the shot using a 27g needle not much of that but we are talking about the feeling of well being we get from doing the HCG shot I get this feeling in less then an hour doing the shot in my thigh using a 27g x 1/2" needle. Doing the shot in my belly I don't feel the feeling of well being at all.

    When you guys are refering to the thigh, are you shooting subq or IM? I am using 250iu subq in the abdomen currently. I think subq is the prefered route for its sustained release.

    I don't care about it being a sustained release I care about how it makes me feel. Try it what do you have to lose.

    I shoot SubQ in medium fatty skin halfway down the front of the thigh using a 31g diabetic syringe. I don't get an immediate release and I don't get a extremely prolonged release.

    I will have to admit to being told often of the 'euphoria' after hcg. At most I found this to be self limiting. This often made me look at the literature for some yet undiscovered or newly discovered testicular compound. It would be nice to be the one to discover this compound. Also, reports of increased libido along with wood are often comments.
    As far as injecting into fat one would expect that there would be a delay in the release. Even so, the release is quick and not counted in days as with depo preparations of T.

    I have not had a "euphoria" experience from HCG, but it definitely gives me more energy and my blood sugar control is much better. This is probably attributable to the fact that HCG besides increasing T, also increases pregnenolone and thereby the other hormones derived from it.

    The release into very fatty skin from my experience can take many hours, to the point that whatever action HCG takes, happens much later in the day when one would rather not have it.

    I dont experience this euphoria or increase in libido. In fact I would say my libido and sexual func are blunted following hcg administration. For me libido and sexual function are best following my testosterone injection. The only reason i continue to use HCG is to prevent testicular atrophy. Now I cant say this has always been true, because before starting cypionate I used 70iu of HCG daily and was able to treat my mild ED.

    I would say using a 27g 1ml x 1/2" needle in the thigh would be on the subQ side. So give it a try and see I like the way it works doing the shot in my thigh. I asked my Dr. about doing my T shots subQ like Dr. Shippen is said to be doing. My Dr. said no but said I could use the 27g needle to do my T shots in my Thigh not in the belly. To me it is the same thing. Just works faster in the Thigh.
