Traveling with T and HCG
« on: March 20, 2017, 01:35:58 pm »
What is the best way to travel with testosterone and HCG.  Going to  FL for 7 days. Flying out from STL. Can I preload all syringes and do I need the scripts with me. Also on a side note what about BP meds and even a couple of generic Cialis pills. Can they just be thrown in with vitamins?

Would recommend bringing the prescriptions just in case, and I usually use an insulin/syringe carrier.  With HCG you'll want to use a refrigerated carrier - there are some decent ones on Amazon.  Just make sure your T is warmed up prior to your injection as it can crystalize and cause pain if injected at refrigerated temperatures.

Re: the pills, I've never had an issue tossing them in w/ Vitamins, but might be worth bringing the scrip just in case as well, especially if you end up traveling internationally at some point.

...

For this reason don't chill the testosterone at all. It's pretty hardy, and you're supposed to use hot water if it does get cold:

Quote from: Defy Medical
To re-dissolve the testosterone: Place the vial into hot water for at least 5 minutes prior to injection and INJECT SLOWLY.  You may boil water at a low temperature or use hot water directly from the faucet.  Be careful not to touch the glass vial until it has cooled off after being placed in the hot water.  This only needs to be done if the vial has been stored and/or exposed to low temperatures for a period of time, not prior to every injection if the vial is properly stored at room temperature.

So no need to worry about the scrips for my bp and allergy med? Also any issues
With the generic cialis? Only would take a couple. I'm guessing just throw them in with my supps in a mon-sun pill box?

hCG should be refrigerated once reconstituted.   It's a pain to travel with it.   This is where androgel packets excel.

hcg can be frozen without losing potency which can make it alot easier to travel with.

Zooka,

Correct, they don't pay any attention to the pills in a weekly minder.  Prescription or otherwise.  You should be fine.  Also, small world, I am in STL as well.

Curious about this Sighalot - I thought I'd heard that you shouldn't freeze HCG.  How did you get turned on to this method?  Would certainly make my travel efforts a lot easier!

I always just skip the hCG when I'm traveling.  I don't really care for the hassle of trying to keep the drug chilled during my flight, and skipping a couple of doses isn't a big deal.  I've never noticed any difference.

Not a bad idea to keep a copy of your prescription (or the label with your information on it) with you when you fly, but I can pretty much promise you that nobody is even going to mention your medications or syringes.  They don't care at all, nor should they, it doesn't violate any of their travel rules.

I pack my stuff in my carry on bag every time.  No issues.

According to john crisler it have been tested, the report is classified but he revealed that after 3 months and thawed once a month(if my memory serves me right) the potency was still within limits 80-125% or something like that.

I suggest that you use the search function, i have written about it earlier with a link to the post on another forum written by john crisler.
