HCG (Human Chronic Gonadotropin) has been derived from the urine of pregnant women. It is an injectable drug which is available commercially in the States as well as many other countries. It is an FDA approved drug for the treatment for undecended testicles in young boys. It is also used as a fertility drug used in helping for inducing ovulation in women.
In your body, HCG (Human chronic Gonadotropin) acts as a Leutenizing Harmone and it is a Gonadotropin. A gonadotropin is any substance that stimulates the gonads (ovary, testes) and these were firstly extracted from the human in 1958.HCG is hetrodimeric as it initiates cell division(phase of mitosis) with an alpha subunit . Alpha subunit is identical to LH, FSH and TSH.
LH: stands for luteinizing hormone
FSH: Follicle stimulating hormone
TSH: Thyroid stimulating hormone
LH is also called a gonadotropin as it stimulates the gonads or testes. It is made up of a beta chain of 115 amino acids and an alpha chain of 89 amino acids. It is produced in the pituitary cells. The binding of LH to the receptor cells in the testes, stimulates the production and secretion of testosterone. Athletes use HCG in order to stimulate natural testosterone during or after the steroid cycle, which has caused natural levels to be reduced and it is often stacked with an anti-estrogen for even a better results. If a steroid cycle is stopped suddenly, especially when endogenous androgens are absent may prove harmful as it can cause a rapid loss in athletes newly acquired muscles. During the use of HCG to stimulate natural production, a notably prominent crash will be avoided. The package of HCG consists of two separate vials. The first vial is with a powder and the second contains sterile solvent. Before injecting, these two vials are mixed and any left needs to be refrigerated and this refrigerated remain will have an active life of 10 weeks. The discussion about the quantity and frequency of the dose is very common among the users and different people may have different views about it. The most common opinion is in favor of small dosage that is 250 iu or 500iu each day for 5 or 6 days. Small dose like 500iu two days in a week is not proper to get some visible results as a small dose of HCG is useful only for reducing the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia. To make the use of this drug more effective, most of the people think it right to use HCG at the end of the steroid cycle and I think, you should start HCG therapy on the last week of your cycle. The parallel use of Nolvadex while you are using HCG is an excellent way to drive better results. When the steroid cycle comes to an end, you should continue your usual clomid or Nolvedex for post cycle therapy (PCT) as it is more effective when used in conjunction for PCT.
During an AAS cycle of 6-10 weeks, the use of HCG is not necessary but when you are taking heavy oral doses and there is an existing problem of testicular atrophy, the HCG must be used during the cycle.
HCG should be the part of the AAS cycle of 6to 12 weeks as a post cycle plan.We offer prenyl (HCG) by Organon in 5000 iu amp x 1 + Solvent x 1 amp = 2 ampoules.
