Default Do I need to refrigerate my hcg?

I got my drugs today. The Follistim came on ice- and I put that right into the fridge. THe hcg came in a regular package-- separate from the follistim but in the same box, but not on ice. The box said "keep below 77 degrees". It's about 74 in here, and it's not mixed yet. Should I put it in the fridge?

It probably wants to be room temperature. I wouldn't refrigerate it if it says to keep it under 77.

Depends on how cool/hot your house is. I would put it in the fridge... Better safe than sorry.

You could also call the pharmacy.

What hCG did you get? I used Ovidrel and was told to keep it in the fridge until about an hour before time for the injection--then let it rest on the counter to come to room temperature.

I have to mix it myself. Right now it's a powder and water-- in separate vials.
