If you have the time and the money and you don’t object to regular injections, then intra-muscular injections of hCG remain the most effective means of delivering hCG. The oral mucosa will, however, absorb hCG into the bloodstream, it’s just not quite as effective, so hCG drops contain a higher concentration of hCG than you’d usually find in hCG formulated for injections (at least they should – make sure you purchase drops that do). This means that you’ll still absorb enough hCG to do the trick.
When to Use hCG Drops Instead of Injections
The thought of regular injections is enough to put some people off the hCG diet completely. Although relatively painless, few people actually enjoy having to inject themselves daily. The good news is that an aversion to needles does not have to be a barrier to losing weight with the hCG diet. Whatever your reasons for preferring to avoid the needle, prescription hCG sublingual drops will work nearly as well when you take an effective dose – just make sure it really is prescription hCG you are getting.
Although complications related to injections are rare, there is still a real risk of abscesses, haematoma, injury to blood vessels and nerves and infection. This risk is greater for certain individuals than others, so if you’ve had complications as a result of injections in the past, it might be wise to consider using sublingual hCG as an alternative to hCG injections.
Thrombocytopenia, a condition that results in a low blood platelet count or coagulopathy (a tendency to bleed), would make intramuscular injections particularly dangerous. If you suffer from either of these conditions, hCG drops would be your only option.
