    Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is helping women with weight loss

    Human Chorionic Gonadotropin – The Peptide Women Are Using For Weight Loss

    Recently HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) has come into vogue as a fertility and fat-loss treatment for women. The peptide has long been in use for bodybuilding and has a particular role in restoring endocrine function after a steroid cycle.

    The peptide hormone HCG was discovered in 1920 and commercially available 1931. At that time it was derived from the pituitary gland of animals and sold by the pharmaceutical company Organon.

    At the beginning of the 1840s, scientists discovered that HCG could be extracted from the urine of pregnant women, and that is how most products are derived today.

    HCG is mainly used to induce ovulation in women who want to get pregnant, and in men to stimulate testosterone production.

    HCG functions similarly to LH (luteinizing hormone), which triggers the testes to release testosterone in men, and is responsible for the implantation of the fertilized uterine uterus and the release of progesterone during the first few months of female pregnancy.

    HCG is considered a performance enhancing substance and banned by most drug testing agencies.

    Most of the serious side effects of HCG use are side effects of the excess testosterone it releases. In bodybuilding, HCG is used during prolonged use of anabolic steroids and after discontinuation of anabolic steroids, to re-stimulate testosterone production after the desensitization caused by the negative feedback of excess testosterone.

    Recently, HCG has been marketed as a weight loss drug. On a low-calorie diet, HCG was intended to both suppress hunger and eliminate of stubborn fat deposits.

    However, despite it’s popularity, the science behind HCG as a weight loss drug is still far from conclusive. Most fertility products (Pregnyl and Novarel) containing the drug also carry disclaimers like:

    “HCG HAS NOT BEEN DEMONSTRATED TO BE EFFECTIVE ADJUNCTIVE THERAPY IN THE TREATMENT OF OBESITY. THERE IS NO SUBSTANTIAL EVIDENCE THAT IT INCREASES WEIGHT LOSS BEYOND THAT RESULTING FROM CALORIC RESTRICTION, THAT IT CAUSES A MORE ATTRACTIVE OR ‘NORMAL’ DISTRIBUTION OF FAT, OR THAT IT DECREASES THE HUNGER AND DISCOMFORT ASSOCIATED WITH CALORIE-RESTRICTED DIETS.”

    My wife has started this again. She had some great success a few yrs ago. Since then she's had her thyroid obliterated and put on weight no matter what. So she decided to give this a try from a reputable clinic. It's working so far. About half way through the cycle. The diet needs to be followed to the letter. Just like taking roids, there are rules or you don't get results. Except this time the hcg is in pill form taken twice a day. I'm guessing saliva activates it. Goes under the tongue. I looked it up and there is real hcg in pill now. Had no idea.

    Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) and Bodybuilding

    What is HCG?

    Human Chorionic Gonadotropin or hCG or HCG is a powerful polypeptide hormone found in the urine of pregnant women.
    What is HCG normally used for?

    It is used to help females get pregnant, weight loss and to stimulate testosterone production in males.
    How does HCG work?

    • In females, HCG is stimulating ovaries that help raise fertility.
    • In males, HCG helps restore and maintain testosterone production in the testes by mimicking LH and triggering the production and release of testosterone.
    • At the same time, it restores the size of the testes rather quickly if they were suppressed from a cycle

    When should HCG be used for?

    Bodybuilders use it mostly during the very long or heavy cycles when the HTPA(Hypothalamic–pituitary-gonadal axis) gets severely suppressed. At the same time, it can be used during or after every cycle, it helps to recover the natural testosterone faster.
    Can HCG be used during the cycle?

    Yes, it can be used but you should stop using it if your getting signs of gyno, HCG will make it worse. That is why AI products are recommended to be used during the cycle or when your getting signs of gyno.
    When do you take HCG?

    It should be used during the cycle and after it and there are 2 ways how the bodybuilders are using the HCG.
    The first method:

    • During the cycle - 250 IU every 4-5 days of the cycle. It is a standard dosage that is used during the cycle and it shouldn't be exceeded if you want to recover the natural testosterone level after the cycle.
    • After the cycle - 500-1000 IU per day for 10 days. You will need to wait 3-10 days after the last injection and it depends on the dosages of esters used during the cycle, bigger the dosages more you need to wait. For about 500-700 mg of esters during the cycle, you need to wait 3 days after the last injection. And only after that start the PCT program.

    The second method:

    • During the cycle - the last 3-4 weeks of the cycle, 1000 IU per week or 500 IU twice a week.
    • After the cycle - during the PCT for 10 days 500 IU per day at the same time with the SERM products (Tamox, Clomed). After 10 days, the Tamox or Clomed should be taken for 2 more weeks.

    Can HCG be used w/out steroids to boost test production above baseline?

    Personally, we don't recommend to use it to increase the norm of testosterone level, with the time it could desensitize the Leydig cells to LH and when you will stop using HCG, it could lead to very bad consequences, such as low libido and so on. And at the same time, it boosts the testosterone for about 5-6 days from the last injection. Better options are Anastrozole, Tamox, Clomed.
    Has HCG side effects, gyno?

    It can occur in 2 ways. First, from high levels of testosterone, more of it, more can aromatize to estrogen. And the second one is due to the side effects of the product. That is why it is recommended to be combined with Anastrozole or Tamox during the use of HCG.
    How do you take HCG?

    At the moment only subcutaneously or IM (intramuscularly).

    • Injecting Intramuscularly - use it at big doses, more than 1ml. If you inject it frequently in a site it could lead scar tissue.
    • Injecting Subcutaneously - use it at low doses, less than 1ml.

    How to mix HCG?

    Most of the HCG that is sold includes 1 vial of HCG powder and 1 vial or 1 amp of bacteriostatic water or sterile water. Here is simple math that will help you calc how many issues will be after you will mix it with the solvent.
    If the HCG vial has 5000 IU and you will dilute it with 1ml of solvent, in the vial will be 5000 IU.
    If you will add 2 ml of diluent, in the vial will be 2500 IU per ml.
    In case of 5 ml of diluent, 1000 IU per ml.
    And so on.
    The HCG is very easy to mix, it dissolves easily but doesn't shake it, let it foam by its self. The mixed HCG can be stored in the refrigerator at a temperature of 36° to 46°F (2° to 8°C).
