I use this medication for weightloss and it works. You just have to stick to your diet along with this medication (HCG)and you will get the results you are looking for.

How much would this medicne cost for a women?
Have been taking HCG tablets and following protocol, but have started getting terrible hives.. anyone else experienced this?
I'm on day 5 of a 40 day regimen of sub Q injections for weightloss. The 500 calorie a day diet is resulting in early and rapid weight loss. However the side effects of the HCG are somewhat unpleasant. I have a strange dizzy or euphoric feeling and heavyness in my limbs. I'm typically very sensitive to medications, so I'm going to slightly reduce my dose and see of this side effect decreases over the next 5 days. I'll also have my BP and pulse checked daily to make sure everything is ok.
I took prescription HCG in 2-42 day doses and 2-21 day doses over an 8 month time period. The result was a 95 lb weight loss. I stopped 7 months ago and the weight has stayed off.
Used this to lose weight. My blood pressure rose to 198/115. I was under a physician's care! DO NO USE THIS DRUG.
I did this for a week and lost 12 pounds, which I know was water weight because I urinated constantly. I stopped drops and next day I was thirsty constantly; drank lots, but barely urinated. Gained back the weight in two days. Tried the drops with just a regular diet and lost nothing. If you eat 500 calories a day without the drops, you'll still lose 1-2 pounds per day because you're burning more calories than you're eating. This is just a fad diet-making you think that the drops are causing the weight loss, when in fact it is just the reduced calories. Ha, ha - lightbulb! I was also having weird side effects like aggitation and increase in libido. My doctor said that these drops can cause "pregnancy" side effects.Read More Read Less
I have been using HCG drops on a special diet plan. I have had no adverse side effects and have lost a lot of weight. I am feeling great!
I use 10.000 units of HCG as a trigger shot along with ovulation meds to induce ovulation. I have the nurse give me the shot as I can't inject myself. I felt no pain when given the injection and no pain afterwards. She injects me in my behind where the top of my panties lie and I've never experienced any pain.
I began HCG injections for weight loss. I did lose weight. I also lost hair. I now have 5 large bald spots on my head. It was working for me as a weight loss aid. (I did 2 3 week rounds and loss 26 pounds).
A little over 2 weeks ago, I weighed 226.6 lbs. My friend had used easy hcg for about 3 weeks and lost a very noticeable amount of weight. He gave me a 2/3 full bottle and told me that should last about 3 weeks. He also gave me the instructions, which I have followed almost completely, (I cheated a couple of times with a small amount of salty snacks). That being said, in 15 days I've gone from 226.6 lbs to 210.2 lbs. I have been pretty good about the caloric intake of 500 calories per day. I plan to begin working out to continue the fat loss. This isn't about weight loss as much as it is about fat loss. I see the fat coming off my body. I see muscle definition returning. I know that I am in striking distance of getting into great shape because I've just lost about 16 lbs of fat off my body. I've felt great the whole time. When I feel a bit hungry, I drink water and the hunger subsides. I would recommend this product to others. I would also say, don't think you can go back to eating the way you did before and do nothing in the form of physical exercise and think you are going to keep the fat off of your body. Use this as a catalyst to give you a headstart in reaching your fitness goals. There is no cure-all. You have to put effort into your long-term physical health. Read More Read Less
It took me a year to realize that this is why FDA has no comment. Here is my theory. This is information that I myself investigated from talking to people researching and talking to HCG corporate. The best to know the legit info is the person who discovered it which is Dr. Simeons. I bought my first HCG at GNC because I trust the store I never had any other issues with their sells or products. Until I bought my first HCG with them. I tried it for about 3 weeks. I was 150 at the time. I did manage to go down to 130. I followed every step possible and my weight was still fluctuating. So I don't know why I assumed it was the real HCG. I should've checked the label first. Well when I educated myself more on the ingredients and had the knowledge of what it is supposed to contain. I researched and found out that there was no HCG in it on the back of the bottle if you read it basically says water based it is diluted. I was upset. Then talked to a trainer at my gym this is what he says....sweetie you lost all the muscle you had before it sure was not fat... what you are taking showed him the bottle and said it was fake HCG. I was upset because it made me loose muscle instead of fat. I really think the fact of putting the liquid under your tongue makes you think psychologically that it will work because that is what you read, but like I said when you research and have knowledge. You want to test it for yourself. So here it goes I did my on scientific test. I stopped the HCG for about two weeks. Then my trainer told me watch let’s put it to the test...I went back to the gym and started lifting weights again and got muscle back it took me about 3 months to be back in shape. He tells me to try the diet again but this time DO NOT TAKE THE HCG follows the same protocol of Dr. Simons. I did exactly what he told me then I sure was losing weight pounds it was sub conscience....I then realized it was not the drops it is the fact of the low intake calories consumed. I started losiRead More Read Less
I lost 24 lbs in 40 days and maintained it because my appetite decreased. I have done numberous diets. This was the fastest and it elimated my huge stomach which has never been accomplished by any other diet.
I bagan using HCG for weight lose, the tip of my tongue is numb, a terrible metal taste in mouth and scent in nasal passage. On day 7 I experienced chest pain and severe pain in the left side/lung area. Have stopped treatment even though I lost 10 pounds in 7 days.
Use of this product along with a low calorie diet has shed 30 pounds off my body without losing muscle. no bloating or water retention issues, used for 4 months. No side effects
I started HCG Drops May 26,I have lost 16 pounds,I only had one problem that scared me,some slight vaginal bleeding and a nose bleed that I never had before, I don't know if this is related to the HCG Drops. I would like to know if anyone has had a similar experience.
VERY GOOD DONT BUY THE DROPS THERE ARE NOT AS AFFECTED AS THE DR. IVE BEEN ON IT FOR 3 WEEKS UNFORTUNATLY I WENT ONE WEEK ON STARVATION MODE ONLY LOSY 2LBS 2ND WEEK 6LBS AM HAVING PROBLEMS GETTING ALL 500 CALORIES,
I Started hcg shoot on 6/2/11 am type 2 diabetic. I started at 167 3 days later am already down to 162 ill keep us posted..no side affect just a slight headache.
I did one 30 day round of hcg. It seemed to work perfectly I lost 20 pounds! I decided not to do another round of the diet because is was very hard. Since the diet, I have experienced health problems I have never had before. Severe acid reflux that is not relieved by any medication or treatment. I also had an infection in my stomach. Everyone I know that has done the hcg diet have had similar side effects and some even worse. My problem is still not resolved and I have been seeing a specialist for months now. Be very leery of this diet. I wish I would have heard about these side effects. It would have saved me from a lot of money and a lot of pain! Read More Read Less
I am a Type1 diabetic and I can tell you that HCG works just fine. When I was on HCG my insulin requirements were literally cut in 1/2. If you follow the protocol as it states, you will lose the weight. I did not lose a pound a day, but more than 1/2 a pound. The results were remarkable. My skin changed, eatting habits, and my clothes were significantly bigger. I am currently in Phase 4 and still in the 2 pound window. I have not gained any weight back and the desire to eat junk for has decreased. Being a diabetic carbs are not my friend. I love rice, french fries, yuca, etc. however they dont love me. With this diet it has decreased my desire for these foods. I need to lose 20 more pounds and will do so using this protocol. If you want to lose weight, keep it off and lower your medication requirements follow this protocol to a tee. If you have any serious health issues make sure you speak with your doctor first however, I can tell you it works fine. If you are having difficulties and the HCG is not working for you make sure it's pure. Some of the providers are not sending pure HCG and it can cause problems. Remember to give your body a rest from the shots when you get off of the protocol. If you over do it your hair could fall out. If you are doing more than 1 round you must wait 4 weeks before you start again. If you do 2 rounds wait for 6 weeks. The longest you can stay on this protocol is 40 days and then you must give it a rest. Read the Pounds and Inches transcript by Dr. Simeons and it will explain the protocol and how to do so correctly. Anything that is not done correctly can cause harm. Good Luck in your new healthy life.Read More Read Less
I did the HCG diet last year. It worked great. Then I got sick. The protocol is to not take vitamins. My vitamin A and Vitamin D were dangerously low after the diet. Then I got shingles. Doctors say it was because my immune system was taxed. (Could it be the 500 calorie a day diet?) Then I put on weight. Went to an endocronologist. Routine exam found a small lump. CANCER- Thyroid Cancer. No history at all in the family. I can't blame HCG entirely but it is certainly a large consideration. If I could do it again I would not.Read More Read Less
I have lost 6 lbs after taking the sublingual drops for 4 weeks . I had plateaued and this jump started the metabolism to lose again. One very big concern!- Hair started to fall out around the end of first cycle. Gradual at first but now it is rapid fire. I am totally freaked out!!!` have never had this happen ever-not sure how to deal with it! I will not be taking it again but need to know if stopping the drops will restore growth?
