hCG and Menstrual Cycle


hCG And Your Menstrual Cycle

For Women ONLY!

In the hCG Diet manuscript Pounds and Inches by Dr. Simeons he states to start the hCG diet after the last day of your menstrual cycle.  He also states to stop the hCG injections or drops during your menstrual cycle.

For women who go on the hCG diet and have their period, they often wonder what to do and why they have to stop.  This post will clearly answer that question based on Dr. Simeons manuscript so there won't be any confusion as to the rules you should follow when you go on the hCG diet and your period comes.



Dr. Simeons states you should stop the hCG drops or injections during your cycle but continue the consuming the 500 calorie hCG diet foods.  When your cycle is over you resume taking your hCG drops and continue with the 500 calorie diet.

Dr. Simeons also states to start the hCG diet after the last day of your period.


Hormones Are The Answer 

Hormones control the start and finish of your menstrual cycle.  The Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and the Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH). Both hormones are produced by the pituitary gland in the brain to mature the ovaries and later manage your menstrual cycle.  During your cycle the Luteinizing Hormone is produced in abundance over powering the effects of hCG while on the diet.

The hCG won't have any positive effect on you while the Luteinizing Hormone is present.  You still follow the hCG diet meal plan as hCG is still present in your system and it will help lessen some of the weight gain your hormones may have already caused you by retaining water.  


42 Day Protocol

When you are on the 42 Day Protocol you still have to take 1 day off a week in addition to stopping the hCG drops when your period comes.  Remember stopping oral hCG or hCG injections is to prevent hCG immunity and has nothing to do with your cycle.


No Period

If you no longer have your period and are on the hCG diet, then these rules to stop the oral hCG or hCG injections during your menstrual cycle do not apply to you and you are free to continue the hCG diet without interruption, unless you are on the 42 Day Protocol.


What To Expect

Other women have said they are hungry during their menstrual cycle time as there isn't any hCG that is releasing the fat, however they still stick to the hCG diet 500 calorie diet plan.

Some women report cravings for sweets during their period while on the hCG diet.

Some women report they gained a few pounds, their weight loss stalled or slowed down considerably prior to the onset of their menstrual cycle, however after restarting the hCG drops in a few days the weight loss restarted.  Some women have reported they maintained what they lost during that time.  


Always plan the diet around your cycle to make it as easy on yourself as possible.

Stick to the hCG diet foods.

Doing the Candida Cleanse prior to starting the hCG diet can help lessen sweet cravings and help prevent cheating.

Enjoying some hCG diet teas can help lessen cramps, cravings, and control your appetite during menstruation while on the hCG diet.

hCG diet teas can also help with releasing water retention during your menstrual cycle.

Increasing water intake will help with releasing water weight during and after your menstrual cycle.




I have the mirena IUD. Is there a chance that hcg lessens the effectiveness of birth control, or any other side effects with this birth control while using Real hcg drops?

We don't answer health or medical or medication questions.  The FAQ does state birth control doesn't interfere with the diet nor does the diet interfere with birth control.  And lot of women on birth control do the diet.

@Dez, I too have the Mirena, and I have been doing the HCG drops now for a little over a year on and off. I have had no unexpected pregnancy, so I would say that it is safe to do the diet and feel safe about your Birth Control.
It is evening of day 7 VLCD with drops and I noticed I am spotting. I think my period is getting ready to start, (it is irregular). Do I stop drops only on heavy days or the entire time? Also, do I count these VLCDs during my period with no drops in the 23 days or do I start counting days again when I go back on drops? Hope this makes sense. Thank you.

Your choice some stop some don't.  You can if you want and yes you count those days as diet days are you are still eating 500 calories.

READ the entire RULES.  IT states the answer to your question just one sentence away from the sentence you are focused on.  Since the questions is answered in the post re read that section of the post.

Not understanding what how else it should be answered or how clearer it needs to be.  IF you can tell me I would be happy to change the way it is written to be more clear and concise. 

Hi, I started loading yesterday with your drops and today, after taking my drops at lunch, TOM arrived. He came early. What should I do? If I continue dropping how will that affect my weight loss? Please advise what I should do!!!! Thank you.

Stop the drops and diet till it's over.  Start over when your are done with your cycle.  With real hCG drops it can come early or late or just be normal.

@Dez, Does that mean I must load again?! What will happen if I continue dropping? This is my first day of the VLCD.
