HCG is a hormone that acts like the LH signal in men. LH is one of two hormones that travels from the pituitary to the testes signaling them to produce testosterone. When you take exogenous testosterone, or testosterone from outside the body this hormone gets suppressed.
The HPTA has a complex built in mechanism known as the negative feedback loop. So when your body sense's there is plenty of testosterone in the bloodstream it supresses the production of LH. This is why the testicles shrink and stop producing hormones when on testosterone replacement therapy.
Progesterone and Estradiol are also produced in the testes and these two hormones may become supressed as well.
This is why HCG is so important, it mimics the LH hormone and tells your testicles to produce testosterone, and other hormones, even though your on testosterone. This offsets the suppression of your testosterone replacement therapy program and has tremendous benefits such as:
- Maintain Fertility
- Stimulate Progesterone
- Maintain Testicular Size
- Stimulate Pituitary
- Increase Sex drive
- Increase Ejaculate Volume
These benefits were shown clinically in the following study:
"Conclusions: Low dose human chorionic gonadotropin appears to maintain some parameters in hypogonadal men on testosterone replacement therapy. Concurrent testosterone replacement and human chorionic gonadotropin use may preserve fertility in hypogonadal males who desire fertility preservation while on testosterone replacement therapy"
HCG is injected via a subcutaneous injection. This simply means into the adipose or fat tissue. HCG is usually dispensed in a lyophilized powder and the patient mixes it with bacteriostatic water or BAC to activate the solution. To preserve potency HCG is normally stored in the refrigerator.
