Human chorionic gonadotropin is a peptic hormone in the body than LH (luteinizing hormone). LH can stimulate the testes to secrete testosterone, and it is secreted by the pituitary to mimic this hormone and increase testosterone production. It is a part of anabolic steroids, and it is often used as a prevention tool of testicular dysfunction. It helps you to reactivate the testicles after laying dormant for years.
If an anabolic steroid dieter is looking to bring back the natural production of androgenic hormone or testosterone, it is recommended to use HCG. It is used in combination with steroid cycle or after starting the testes. There is no over the counter product to substitute its use instead aromatase inhibitors and estrogen receptor modulators.
Case Study for HCG
According to a study conducted by Dr. Geoff Gill in England, a bodybuilder using anabolic steroids without HCG often experiences varicose vein in the scrotum, erectile dysfunction, lethargy, low sex drive, sore nipples and scant body hair. The subject was using Sustanon, Stanozolol (Winstrol) and Nandrolone (Deca-Durabolin).
The level of LH and FSH was almost zero that showed that the pituitary gland was not functioning correctly. The bodybuilder was not ready for quick anabolic steroids; therefore, the doctors advised him to take Sustanon 250 for almost two weeks. This was helpful to reduce testosterone symptoms, such as lethargy, loss of libido and erectile dysfunction.
After fifteen months, the bodybuilder had decided to stop androgens and anabolic steroids. This was the reason to reduce the testosterone level. In the absence of a synthetic form of testosterone replacement, such as oral testosterone, androgen, gels, creams, and injections, the pituitary-gonadal axis was predictable.
His testosterone level falls from 14.0 to 8.5 nanomol/I. To stimulate the testicular function, this bodybuilder was treated with HCG injections for almost three months. He was given 10.000 units I.M. for one month, 5.000 units for one month and 2500 units for one month. After one week, the libido was greatly improved, and the doctor noticed spontaneous nocturnal ejaculations.
Conclusion: His potency and serum testosterone levels returned to normal within three months of this treatment. These injections really work, but their action was temporary. It is essential for bodybuilders to use HCG to bring it back to a normal level because after discontinuing these injections, the endogenous testosterone levels automatically fall below its actual level. HCG directly addresses the testes instead of controlling the center of hormone control or hypothalamus. The SERMs are implemented after the use of steroid, and a solid PCT protocol will contain HCG and SERMs to address both testicles and hormonal responses.
To Wrap Up
HCG can be used along with steroids to enhance its benefits. If you are using HCG drugs and injections, it is essential to focus on your diet and include natural fruits and vegetables in your diet. You can reduce weight by increasing metabolic rate and build healthy muscle for a strong body. Make sure to follow the instructions given by doctor before using HCG drugs.
