I've just started using HCG, today is my second loading day. I've noticed some slight burning and tingling at the injection sight. Am I doing something wrong?

If you are using an alcohol pad, you might feel a slight burn/tingle because of that. I just started the injections 4 days ago and everything is fine. I did 1 40 day round of homeopathic drops, lost 38lbs in 40 days, did a 2nd round of homeopathic drops and my hair fell out in hand-fulls and gained most of that weight back. I am still 50lbs lighter than my original start weight. I decided to try the injections this time. Good luck to you!

I was taught to inject in my belly fat, but further toward the side than the middle because there are less nerves there, so you don't get the burn or tingle. Just pinch some fat (closer to your hip bone) and inject there, and you'll notice it will be completely comfortable.

You may not have let the alcohol dry and make sure you are not injecting at the same site everyday change it and use the alcohol pad to gentle massage in the shot it may help.
