How to do a subcutaneous injection of HCG
Begin any procedure of drawing or injecting medication with a good washing of your hands with warm, soapy water.
Clean and sterilize the rubber top of the HCG vial with an alcohol pad.
Use a 1mL 5/16” insulin syringe and needle for injecting your HCG.
Remove safety caps from the syringe.
Insert the needle into the rubber port.
Turn the vial upside down to allow gravity to assist you and pull back on the plunger to your dose of HCG.
Clean the skin on the abdomen with a fresh alcohol pad.
Pinch an area of skin away from the navel and then inject the needle at a 90 degree angle.
Push the needle all the way straight into skin.
Press down on the plunger and then remove the needle quickly.
