Original email for context: My question is, if it’s ok that I mixed 5000 iu with only 4 ml bac water? How do I find my dose now?
No problem! It’s fine if you have mixed your hCG in a non-standard ratio, it just means that you need to do the math to figure out the various dosages on the syringe – do this before injecting for the first time, then you can use the numbers you come up with to adjust your dosage easily throughout your round.
So here’s how you calculate dosages on various spots on the syringe for other mixing ratios and I’ll give you an example below with your ratio.
Divide the number of IU’s in your whole vial (5,000iu usually) by the number of ML’s of liquid you mixed with.
Example: You mixed 5000iu hCG with 4ml mixing solution so
5000/4 = 1250iu is in each 1 ml of solution in this case.
Multiple the number of units on the syringe by the IU’s per ML to find out how many iu’s are in that unit number.
10 units on the syringe (.1) multiplied by 1250 – so
.1 x 1250 = 125ius – so thus, 10 units = 125ius
15 units on the syringe (.15) multiplied by 125o would be:
.15 x 1250 = 156ius, so thus, 15 units = 156ius
So in your case then: 5,000iu/4ml = 1250iu per ml in your mix
Thus, the following amounts on syringe will be the following dosage:
- 10 units = 125ius (.1 x 1250) 10 units would be .1 of a cc/ml
- 12.5 units = 156ius (or .125 on syringe)
- 15 units = 187ius (or .15 on syringe)
- 17 units = 212ius (or .17 on syringe)
Let’s say you have a 6,000iu vial of hCG actually – and let’s say you ended up mixing it with 8mls of mixing solution.
- 6000iu/8ml = 750iu of hCG in each 1 ml of solution
- 10 units on the syringe (.1) x 750 = 75 iu in 10 units
- 25 units on syringe (.25) x 750 = 187.5 iu in 25 units
I hope this helps you!
