Essentials Only Full Version. Hopefully this information will go some way towards rectifying that for the members of MuscleTalk. HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin and is not a steroid, but a natural peptide hormone which develops in the placenta of pregnant women during pregnancy to controls the mother's hormones.
Incidentally, this is the reason you may hear of people testing for growth hormone HGH with a pregnancy testing kit - If their HGH shows 'pregnant', they've been ripped-off with cheaper HCG - but we digress slightly. Its action in the male body is like that of LH, stimulating the Leydig cells in the testes to produce testosterone even in the absence of endogenous LH. HCG is therefore used during longer or heavier steroid cycles to maintain testicular size and condition, or to bring atrophied shrunken testicles back up to their original condition in preparation for post-cycle Clomid therapy.
This process is necessary because atrophied testicles produce reduced levels of natural testosterone, this situation should be rectified prior to post-cycle Clomid therapy.
HCG administration post-cycle is common practice among bodybuilders in the belief that it will aid the natural testosterone recovery, but this theory is unfounded and also counterproductive. HCG does not restore the natural testosterone production. The typically observed dosing of to IU every 4 to 5 days causes such an increase in oestrogen levels via aromatisation of the natural testosterone that this has been responsible for many cases of gynecomastia.
From the above discussion it is clear that HCG is best used during a cycle, either to: HCG Dosage Smaller doses, more frequently during a cycle will give best overall results with least unwanted side effects. Somewhere between IU and IU per day would be best over about a two-week period. This dosing schedule also avoids the risk of permanently down-regulating the LH receptors in the testes.
Also, a small daily dose mg of Nolvadex would normally be used in conjunction with HCG in order to prevent oestrogenic symptoms caused by sudden increases in aromatisation.
Administration of the compound is either by intra-muscular or subcutaneous injection. It comes as a powder which needs to be mixed with the sterile water. The powder is temperature-sensitive prior to mixing and should not be exposed to direct heat.
After mixing, it should be kept refrigerated and used within a few weeks - though there are sterility issues which need to be considered after mixing. Personally i use iu's e5d towards the end of my cycle, stopping 1 week before pct starts. Doesnt take very long to get them back unless you do a hardcore cycle. Some people suffer some shrinkage while others don't, either way it is easily rectified or preventable following silent rep's post on using HCG. Great first cycle though, enjoy!!
Just part of the experience for me it seems. PCT will sort them out either way and like the other gents have said, it's not something i'd be overly worried about in your position mate.
