Original email for context: I’m on Day 2 on Phase 2. I did Phase 1/loading for 3 days. I began having hot flashes almost immediately, probably after my 2nd injection. I’m 52, post-menopausal. These aren’t as bad as the real hot flashes that I experienced while making the transition to menopause…it’s more like being really hot a lot of the time to the point of sweating, I’m naturally a bit on the cool side. It’s also affecting my sleep as a result.
I have heard of odd happenings like this while on hCG. Women can sometimes experience spotting when they haven’t had a menstrual cycle in years, or breast tenderness. Sometimes this only happens at the beginning of the diet for a period of days, for other women they have trouble with this the whole round. I don’t know the answer exactly as to why that’s happening, but from what we’ve observed, the symptoms do appear to go away as soon as they get off hCG when the diet is over.
