Original email for context: How to go about the hCG shots/drops while on my period? Do I stop them for the 7 days or just 3 days? I usually bleed for almost 7 days.
In a nutshell, my own little MO was to stop injecting just on my heaviest flow days – but for me, that was only 2 days or so. Of course, every woman’s period and flow is so different. It’s very possible you not take your hCG longer, but I was too nervous to try this! I didn’t find myself having a problem with injecting the other days.
Some do continue injecting through their period, others stop for the full duration. You do continue the 500 while on TOM without hCG. The idea is that your body actually produces a small amount of hCG while on your period – so in effect, it’s like your body is providing you your daily hCG dose for those days and potentially taking your injection also could be too much hCG in effect causing hunger. That’s the idea anyway.
