Q: “How can I best use HCG between steroid cycles?”A: My most common recommendation with HCG is to use it only during cycles to avoid testicular atrophy and to maintain testicular responsiveness. When this is done, then as soon as LH production is restored with SERM use or with time, the testes are immediately responsive to produce testosterone.However, as your question … [Read more...] about The Use of HCG Between Steroid Cycles
Q: "How should HCG be used in post-cycle therapy (PCT)?"A: Ideally, HCG should not be used at all in PCT. For steroid cycles, HCG really should only be used in PCT if a mistake has been made which needs a correction.When it's used in PCT, the purpose is to correct testicular non-responsiveness or atrophy which has developed during a cycle. The longer the cycle, the more … [Read more...] about Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) and Post Cycle Therapy (PCT)
Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) (not to be confused with human growth hormone, or HGH) is a glycoprotein hormone that mimics LH (luteinizing hormone), produced in pregnancy by the developing embryo soon after conception, and later by part of the placenta. Its role is to prevent the disintegration of the corpus luteum of the ovary and to maintain the progesterone production … [Read more...] about What You Need to Know about Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG)

Q: I have heard some people say to inject HCG intramuscularly and some say subcutaneously. Which one is it? A: One should always inject hCG subcutaneously. The simplest reason is the comfort of the injection; less trauma to tissues; and decreased risk of infection. Subcutaneous versus intramuscular are equally effective. As far as the kinetics of the injections one would … [Read more...] about Should I Inject HCG Intramuscularly or Subcutaneously?
Q: What's the logic behind all the different timing and dosing of HCG ?? We hear taking it every day, every other day, every 3rd, 4th, or 5th day. What about the dosing ? I hear to take it easy to prevent desensitizing the testes. With this you hear anywhere from 100 units to 250 units to play it safe. Others say anywhere from 500 to 2500 units at a time...Isn't that a bit … [Read more...] about How Do I Use HCG with Steroids?
