+ 2 How to test hcg
I learned something today. I bought some hcg from a source here. I went to test it on a pregnancy test we had at home and it came up negative. I have 5000 iu vials and put about 1000 iu straight onto the test stick.
I emailed the source and he suggested I try the following: Put 1ml of water into the 5000 iu vial. Draw out .1 or 500 iu. Put this into a container and dump 10 ml of water on top of it. This diluted the mix by 100 and made the 10 ml of water contain essentially 50iu of hcg.
Tested positive immediately. Just thought I’d put it out there in case others might be looking to test their hcg later. Turns out if the hcg is too concentrated it will show a false negative on the pregnancy test.
