It states everywhere that you must wait 6 weeks after the first time you have done an HCG diet in order for the HCG to leave your system before you start again. Is that 6 weeks from the last shot you took or 6 weeks from the day you finished maintenance??
After 40 daily injections it takes about six weeks before this so-called immunity is lost and HCG again becomes fully effective. Usually after about 40 injections patients may feel the onset of immunity as hunger which was previously absent. In those comparatively rare cases in which signs of immunity develop before the full course of 40 injections has been completed - say at the 35th injection - treatment must be stopped at once, because if it is continued the patients begin to look weary and drawn, feel weak and hungry and any further loss of weight achieved is then always at the expense of normal fat. This is not only undesirable, but normal fat is also instantly regained as soon as the patient is returned to a free diet.
Whatever number of days your treatment was - 23 or 40 - you must wait 6 full weeks before starting again. So 3 weeks of Phase 3 after the drops, then 3 weeks of "normal" eating with the last being your load before resuming the hCG injections.
If you are using Pharmaceutical HCG Drops it would be the same amount of time to wait as the injections.
If you are using the Homeopathic Drops, they say to wait only 3 weeks, but because they don't have HCG in them, it doesn't really matter.
I always recommend using Pharmaceutical HCG Drops because you will be happier with the short and long term results. Not to mention how much easier it us to do the HCG Weight Loss Diet when you are using the Pharmaceutical HCG Drops.
You can get the mixing kit and the HCG Hormone to mix the Pharmaceutical HCG Drops, for about the same cost as Homeopathic. Sometimes it is even cheaper. You can get the mixing kit and HCG right here...
This is the exact amount of time that you should wait before starting your next round of HCG ... Keep in mind though, the amount of time you wait gets progressively longer the more rounds you do.
