Though we have already posted an explanation about why HCG appears negative when tested with a pregnancy test, it continues to be a concern to customers, so, we decided to post it again. HCG is administered for a variety of conditions, in vastly different amounts. For example, a doctor may prescribe 10,000 IU’s (international units) of HCG to increase ovulation, whereas dieters should only take 125-200 IU’s daily for weight loss. Likewise, a pregnant woman produces HCG in extremely high amounts; her body may have as much as 288,000 IU’s at the 9-12 week mark! A pregnancy test is designed to measure high levels of HCG, so it won’t detect the low levels in HCG drops designed for weight loss. So, don’t be disappointed if you do a pregnancy test on your homeopathic HCG and discover that it doesn’t register, if it did, you would be taking way too much! 125-200 IU’s per day is all that’s necessary to generate the amazing weight loss benefits everybody’s seeing on the HCG EZ Drops diet.
