Chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a natural human hormone that contains the placenta of a woman during pregnancy. In order to produce this drug, the basis is taken by the urine of a woman during the period when she is carrying a child. Before the creation of HCG, the urine is purified in special laboratories. In fact, the gonadotropin of the human body is used, which is similar in effect to luteinizing hormone, which is the precursor of testosterone.
The most effective way of taking the drug is not oral but with the help of injections. In experiments conducted in the United States, it was found that food supplements containing chorionic gonadotropin do not give absolutely no return, especially since in the territory of this country this drug is completely banned.
Pharmacological action of gonadotropin chorionic
hCG – affects the production of two hormones of luteinizing (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), in turn, both these hormones are synthesized in the body under the influence of gonadoliberin,
also stimulates the synthesis of sex hormones in the testicles , spermatogenesis . HCG replaces the luteinizing hormone without letting the testicles decrease, which increases the recovery after the course. With a decrease in testes, the development of their own testosterone also begins to fall, even after the course. Thus, by deceiving the hypothalamus – hypophysis – testicles with the help of HCG, we do not allow them to decrease on the ACC course. Important to remember, That hCG suppresses the production of its own gonadoliberin and as a consequence of a failure in the hypotolamus-pituitary-testicle arc. Whatever it is, it’s worth taking action immediately, using gonadotropin we did not let the testicles decrease on the course, then after the course we are doing our own testosterone recovery. Drugs like clomiphene citrate or tamoxifen citrate, as well as an additive like tribulus or other testosterone booster.
Use of HCG for long courses that allow for increased dosages
If AAS is used more than the standard time, or if the recommended dose of steroid intake is exceeded, gonadotropin is taken at a frequency of at least two times per week and single doses of 250 to 500 IU. In the case where this substance was not used during such intensive courses, its use is mandatory in post-course therapy, during which doses are prescribed significantly more in volume – up to 2000 IU. The frequency of injections with this option is once every two days with a duration of three weeks.
What side effects can occur after taking hCG
Like every medical preparation, Chorionic Gonadotropin has its side effects, the main ones of which are listed below:
- The production of gonadotropin-releasing hormone is suppressed;
- The functioning of the system consisting of the hypothalamus, pituitary gland and testicles is disrupted;
- Manifestations of gynecomastia;
- Acne appears;
- The amount of hair on the body increases;
- The effect of masculinization in women is increasing;
- The size of the prostate increases, etc.
