Differences Between HCG Drops And Injections

HCG Drops vs Injections

What is HCG? There have been many articles and feedback, as well as debates, regarding HCG and how it can be used for and by women. HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. This is a hormone that is important for pregnant women and it occurs inside the placenta. With that in mind, one would naturally assume that it is only for pregnant women, right? Unfortunately, it isn’t. Recent studies show that HCG can also help in regulating the rate of one’s metabolism, hence, it can be really beneficial for weight loss. Because of this, many individuals are getting more and more curious and enticed to purchase HCG. The big question is, ‘Is it better to purchase HCG drops or HCG injections?’ What is the difference between HCG drops and injections?

In case some are not aware of how HCG works, just imagine the thousands of diet pills and products that are flooding the market these days. If these products are already making consumers confused on which is more effective, so it is with HCG, the confusion that consumers are having is whether to purchase drops or HCG injections. Suffice to say, in dealing with dietary products, there are three factors that one should consider especially if you wish to lose unwanted weight, namely: effectiveness, cost, and side effects.

HCG Drops vs. HCG Injections

HCG drops are certainly less expensive. Although, while some who take HCG in ‘drops’ form would agree that it is cheaper compared to HCG injections, those who take HCG in injection form would say that the effect is faster, especially since you take it intravenously. What’s more, drops are easier to obtain, unlike injections. You need a prescription before this can be purchased plus injections have to be prepared. When you purchase HCG drops, it is pre-mixed and with the right amount taken, and it is definitely easier for first-time users to take. HCG injections are more painful, as you would have to administer the injections yourself. So when it comes to cost and ease of use, HCG drops are viewed as better.
In terms of effectiveness, many dieters who have tried both say that it is determined by the person taking it himself. Some like the immediate effects HCG injections offer especially when it is taken together with the low calorie diet. Then again, this should not be the only basis, as many of those who have taken HCG through injection who have shifted to drops, actually found drops to be more effective for them. So basically, the bottom line is finding what suits your body’s needs and how much weight you would like to lose.

Lastly, let’s talk about side effects. Like many products, especially dietary products, there are effects that would probably make a consumer think of stopping once he has started taking in the product. There are also those who feel that the side effects are minimal and something that they can overcome, as long as they are not long-lasting and too much to bear. To mention a few of the given side effects by those who have taken both HCG injections and HCG drops include: nausea, dizziness, headache, and to those who have been taking it longer, especially for women, making them more prone to OHHS, ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, and these include swollen hands and legs, increased weight, abdominal pain, and many more. HCG also sees an increase in sperm count for male and even ovulation for infertile women. There are many more effects, positive and negative, that are associated with HCG intake. So it is imperative to talk to you doctor before taking it … drops or injections.


HCG drops cost less and are easier to obtain. HCG drops are pre-mixed and easier to follow in terms of dosage. HCG injections were introduced first in the market and are thought of to have faster results.
HCG drops and injections both have the same side effects, especially when taken in for the first time, as well as when one is taking them for a longer period of time.
Not only are there positive effects in terms of weight loss, there are also negative effects that one should always consider and should talk about with their physician before deciding to include this in their daily diet.
