Hcg Pct


The Purpose of PCT

When we supplement with anabolic steroids we suppress our natural testosterone production. Testosterone, the primary male hormone, is essential to our very well being. Most men who supplement with anabolic steroids will always include at least a minimal amount of testosterone in their cycle due to this suppression factor.

Testosterone is manufactured in the testicles. For testosterone to exist the pituitary releases two gonadotropins Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FHS); this tells the testicles to make testosterone. When we take anabolic steroids the signal that tells the pituitary to produce LH and FSH is reduced and therefore less testosterone is produced. If we are supplementing with testosterone this suppression is of very little consequence as we’re providing our body with what it needs through an outside source. However, once the steroid use comes to an end we have the issue of a suppressed signal that must be dealt with. That is the purpose of PCT, to stimulate natural testosterone production so that we are not left in a low testosterone state.

Medical HCG Dosage

Within the medical establishment, HCG is approved for the treatment and recovery of hypogonadism, where prescription protocols refer to several different methods of treatment:

  • A short-term 6 week long period of HCG therapy
  • Long-term therapy of a one year period maximum
  • A patient customized program dependent on the individual as discussed between the patient and doctor

Medical prescription HCG doses recommend 500 – 1,000IU of HCG are to be administered 3 times weekly for a 3 week period, after which HCG doses are reduced to the same amount only twice weekly. For long-term therapy, a higher dose of 4,000IU administered 3 times per week is recommended for a 6 – 9 month period. Following this period, the HCG doses are to then be lowered to 2,000IU 3 times per week for a remaining 3 month period.

Hcg during or pct?

I would like to know how most of you guys run your hcg.

For years, i have been running HCG during my cycle up untillpct time.

After doing extensive research i changed from

running during my cycle to blasting out HCG in the last 4 weeks of my cycle at 2500iu 2x weekly and I have found great recovery by using this method.

What i have found in my research and my own trial and error is that Use of hcg during cycle will keep your testes responsive to LH but make LH production slower to start after cycle so recovery is based on ramping LH production up, where as not using it and only using it towards the end of your cycle will mean your LH will bounce back real quick after cycle due to negative feedback loops but the testes will not be responsive and recovery is based around the testes becoming responsive to LH.

Please share your thoughts on this topic, and explain what you think is the best method on using HCG. Many people use HCG in different ways and methods, and there is allot of confusion in the bodybuilding world on how to properly use it. Please use evidence when sharing what you think is the most correct method.

HCG in PCT (post anabolic steroid cycle treatment)

In bodybuilding pharmacology HCG is one of the most misunderstood, misused and underutilized tools available. A bodybuilder who cares about his body functioning properly should never sacrifise his health for muscle gains. After every anabolic steroid cycle, the body's own testosterone production has to be fully restored.

When external androgenic anabolic steroids (AAS) are introduced into the male body the natural negative-feedback loop causes the body to shut down its own production of testosterone via shutdown of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis (HPGA). In other words, when the body senses there is too much testosterone flowing around, it stops producing more of it.

High levels of anabolic steroids, which mimic the body's natural testosterone, cause the hypothalamus to stop its production of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH). Without GnRH, the pituitary gland stops making the luteinizing hormone (LH). Without LH, the testes shut down the body's production of testosterone.

The longer the testes are not getting the lutheinizing hormone, the more the cells within the testes known as leydig cells - (which are normally activated by LH) become desensitized. The testicular degeneration starts with reduction of leydig cell volume, followed by rapid reductions in intra testicular testosterone (ITT), peroxisomes, and Insulin-like factor 3 (INSL3). This is the reason why some men never completely recover after a long steroid cycle. In such cases the testes have stayed inactive for too long and have become permanently damaged and desensitized.
