HCG CANADA In Stock 5000IU/Vial
In men, doctors prescribe hCG to combat the symptoms of hypogonadism, such as low testosterone and infertility. It can help the body increase production of testosterone and increase sperm production, which can reduce infertility.
Injections of hCG are also sometimes used as an alternative to testosterone products in men with testosterone deficiency. Testosterone deficiency is defined as testosterone blood levels less than 300 nanograms per deciliter along with symptoms of low testosterone. These include:
- low sex drive
- depressed mood
According to the American Urological Association, hCG is appropriate for those men with testosterone deficiency who also desire to maintain fertility.
Testosterone products boost levels of the hormone in the body but can have the side effects of shrinking the gonads, altering sexual function, and causing infertility. HCG can help increase testosterone levels, increase fertility, and increase gonad size.
Some doctors think that using testosterone along with hCG might improve symptoms of testosterone deficiency while preventing some of the testosterone side effects.
There is also speculation that hCG might help improve sexual function in men who don’t have improvement while on testosterone.
Bodybuilders who take anabolic steroids such as testosterone also sometimes use hCG to prevent or reverse some of the side effects cause by steroids, such as gonad shrinkage and infertility.
In men, hCG acts like luteinizing hormone (LH). LH stimulates Leydig cells in the testicles, which results in the production of testosterone. LH also stimulates production of sperm within structures in the testicles called seminiferous tubules.
As hCG stimulates the testicles to produce testosterone and sperm, the testicles grow in size over time.
