Human Chorionic Gonadotropic hormone or HCG is not a steroid as most of people think. It is a peptide hormone produced in pregnant woman once the implantation occurs in the uterus. This hormone helps to sustain pregnancy once an egg is fertilized. This hormone can bind to the same receptors that Luteinizing hormone (LH) – a hormone that stimulates the cells in male testicules leading to the production of testosterone hormone.
HCG carries a lot of therapeutic benefits with it. It is used as fertility aid in women, while in men its used to increase testosterone production. It is also used to treat Cryptochidism – a term that refers to undescended testicule into the scrotum in young boys, as well as it is used in some causes to gain weight.
Bodybuilders and athletes tend to use HCG in their post cycle therapy(PCT). When Androgenic anabolic steroids are used for a long period of time; especially strong ones, natural production of testosterone stops, that is due to the high level of exogenous testosterone optioned from steroids, and the hypothalamus as a response stops producing LH, therefore natural production of testosterone is suppressed. once the usage of anabolic steroid ends or discontinued, the production of testosterone starts yet in a very slow bases. It actually might take from 8 months to over a year to regain the same levels prior to the usage of anabolic steroids. Bodybuilders use HCG to enhance testosterone production since it mimics the actions of LH.
This drug can be used alongside anabolic steroid. A dosage of 250IU per day every five days is the standard dose to be used at the same time while on anabolic steroids. Other steroid users prefer to include HCG in their PCT. A dose between 2000-4000IU every 2-4 days for a period of 2-3 weeks is what most athletes consume while in PCT. Another way to use it in PCT is to administer 500-1000IU for ten days then start SERM therapy.
