Hcg Testosterone

Hcg Testosterone

What are the side effects?

The most common side effects men experience when hCG injections are used include:

  • growth of male breasts (gynecomastia)
  • pain, redness, and swelling at the injection site
  • stomach pain
  • nausea
  • vomiting

In rare cases, people taking hCG have developed blood clots. Although also rare, allergic reactions can occur, including mild skin rashes and severe anaphylactic reactions.

Mechanism of Action

The mechanism of action of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) depends upon the purpose for which it is being used, the sex of the patient, and the level of maturity of the patient to whom it is administered.

Adult and adolescent males: In adult and adolescent men with hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, HCG acts like LH and stimulates testosterone production in the Leydig cells and spermatogenesis in the seminiferous tubules. Stimulation of androgen production by HCG causes development of secondary sex characteristics in males (e.g., deepening of voice, facial hair, etc.). Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) also stimulates the Leydig cells to produce estrogens; increased estrogen levels may produce gynecomastia in some males. Once HCG is initiated, it takes at least 70—80 days for germ cells to reach the spermatozoal stage. Response to treatment is also noted by the development of masculine features and the normalization of serum testosterone levels. Induction of testicular growth and increased sperm volumes may help to restore fertility in these men after many months to years of treatment, which is then sometimes combined with the use of either menotropins or follitropin.

Can it be used for weight loss?

HCG is sometimes used for weight loss. Several products are available that are marketed as over-the-counter homeopathic hCG products for weight loss.

However, the FDA has warned that there are no FDA-approved hCG products for this purpose. Over-the-counter products claiming to contain hCG aren’t legally authorized. The FDA has also advised that there is no substantial evidence that hCG works for weight loss.

Why give HCG to Males?

The male analog of HCG is LH, also called Leuteinizing hormone secreted by the anterior pituitary. HCG is almost identical to LH (leutinizing hormone from the anterior pituitary), and serves as an LH analog in the male. 

Why Doesn't it Always Work?

Younger males have plenty of reserve ability to make testosterone, and testosterone levels will promptly go up after an injection of HCG.  In older males, above the age of 50, the aging process reduces the ability of the testicle to make testosterone to a variable degree.  Some older males will have a good response to HCG, other will have a small response, with small amounts of testosterone production.  That's why Dr Eugene Shippen devised the HCG Stimulation Test to help determine if HCG would be helpful or not.

Dosage

Arimidex

A dose of 0.25mgs of Arimidex three times per day seems to work well.

HCG

A dosage of 5000IU is recommended. Users are advised to use HCG for 3 times per week for one week and take a 3 weeks off before taking the next dosage.

These medications should be taken together. We highly recommend you to seek medical prescription from a licenced doctor for proper utilisation of HCG, testosterone and Arimidex.

What is HCG and When Might It Be Used?

hCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (which is very different from HGH, or Human Growth Hormone). While hCG does occur naturally in the human body, it is generally only produced by women during pregnancy. In fact, it is the hormone your standard urine pregnancy test is looking for.

Still, the pituitary gland does produce an analog of hCG, known as luteinizing hormone (LH), which can be found in both men and women, and at any age.
