Hey Guys,

Curious on your opinion here. I have some 10,000 iu kits of HCG which is ALOT for me to use for PCT and even if I supplement during my cycle (which I usually do for the later stages of my cycles...). As a result, I've pre-loaded some slin pins, froze it and pull them out as needed. Didnt want to freeze the bottle bc of of a host of other issues that presents. What are you opinions on this? Do you think I'm wasting my time or do you think the compound will stay stable when frozen in Bac Water? I also have a few kits that expired in 2017-18 that i keep stored in the freezer. I presume that they are fine for a few years past exp date. Welcome your thoughts...

I have no idea, but if you go through with it lets us know. I would think it would be pretty innocuous, but you may want to ask @Mike_RN

I would prefer not freezing but if you do:

1). Protect the protein by putting prefilled set ups in a Tupperware as opposed to directly in freezer.

2). Thaw the pins as needed in the refrigerator so they don’t hit room temp too long.

I have used refrigerated hg hcg that was an honest decade beyond expiration date and my nuts swelled like crazy.
reconstituted, I agree with Mike, avoid the freezer burn my biggest concern would be degradation of the stopper.
10k units has always been a manageable amount for pct for me, what protocol are you planning?

oh! And leave about 0.1-0.2ml of air at the top to accommodate for freezing expansion.

What comes to mind here is this. Reconstituting and allowing the amino acids chains to fully form and set before freezing. I am really interested in this and look forward to you posting the results.

Thx for the input @Mike_RN - much appreciated. I drew them in slin pins, wrapped in freezer wrap and store in freezer zip locks. Pull as needed, a min or two under the armpit and defrosted. Usually give another few mins to adjust so I'm not injecting ice cold water in the muscle. Finished up PCT about 2 weeks ago and so far so good... seem to be back to baseline w/minimal loss on gains. Sex drive is good, mood, nuts, etc seem to be A-OK. PCT consisted of 500 IU's of HCG 3x/week for 3 weeks. Clomid: 300mg/day 1, 200 Days 2-4, 100mg Day 5 and 50mg for the next 3 weeks and Nolva 20mg ED through the duration of PCT. Pretty typical/basic routine but it works for me...

Hey Bro - After reconstituting I filled the slin syringes. I reconstituted at a ratio of 1000 IU/CC. So in my case, one 10,000 IU HCG kit to 10 CC's of bac water. Drew up 500 IUs or 1/2 CC into each slin pin which gave me 20 pre-filled pins @ 500 iu's each. . From start to finish prob took an hour or so. I then wrapped in freezer paper, put in a zip lock freezer bag and put into the freezer. Posted my results in another post in this thread. The HCG was Ovidac brand and expired in 9/18 actually. Its been stored in the freezer un-reconstituted since I got in in 2017.

Any questions... hit me up, happy to help and share experience bro.
