Exploring HCG

Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a naturally occurring peptide hormone with a polypeptide structure that mimics the functions of Luteinising hormone (LH). LH stimulates testosterone production in the testes and is essential, especially in cases of hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, where LH and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) are deficient. 

In early pregnancy, HCG plays a crucial role, particularly in women, aiding in ovulation and fertility treatments such as in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Traditionally, HCG was sourced from pregnant women's urine, but now, through biosynthesis, high-quality human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is readily available online.

Functions of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin

HCG serves various roles in the human body:

  • Supports Corpus Luteum: Initially, HCG helps maintain the corpus luteum, a temporary gland that produces progesterone crucial for early pregnancy and uterine lining integrity.
  • Pregnancy Tests: HCG is the hormone detected by pregnancy tests, indicating early pregnancy within 6-12 days post-fertilization.
  • Placental Function: While not directly involved in fetal development, HCG ensures proper placental function, indirectly supporting fetal growth and nutrition.
  • In Men and Boys: HCG stimulates testosterone production in the testes, aiding males with low testosterone levels or delayed puberty.
  • Fertility Treatments: HCG triggers ovulation in women undergoing fertility treatments, enhancing chances of conception.
  • Weight Loss: Controversially used in the HCG diet, it's claimed to aid weight loss by combining low-calorie intake with injections, although scientific evidence is lacking.
  • Assisting Testicular Descent: In young boys, HCG injections encourage testicular descent, potentially reducing the need for surgery in cases of cryptorchidism.

Side Effects of HCG

Common side effects include:

  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Restlessness
  • Injection Site Reactions

HCG Cycles and Dosage

Various protocols exist:

Hypogonadism or Low Testosterone: Dosages range from 500 to 2,500 IU per injection, given two to three times weekly.

Maintenance of Testicular Function: Lower d
