When used for weight loss benefits, HCG dosages will vary depending on your weight loss goals and needs. If you’re trying to decide between the injections and the drops, you’ll need to consider the appropriate strength doses for each type of application. Medical-grade HCG is extremely effective for people looking to lose a lot of weight. The heavier you are, the more beneficial the prescription doses will be for you. It’s been the light at the end of the tunnel for thousands of people struggling to get their weight loss goals on track.
Transdermal patches (adhesive patches placed on the skin) may also be used to deliver a steady dose through the skin and into the bloodstream. Testosterone-containing creams and gels that are applied daily to the skin are also available, but absorption is inefficient (roughly 10%, varying between individuals) and these treatments tend to be more expensive. Individuals who are especially physically active and/or bathe often may not be good candidates, since the medication can be washed off and may take up to six hours to be fully absorbed. There is also the risk that an intimate partner or child may come in contact with the application site and inadvertently dose himself or herself; children and women are highly sensitive to testosterone and can suffer unintended masculinization and health effects, even from small doses. Injection is the most common method used by individuals administering AAS for non-medical purposes.
