What is Human Chorionic Gonadotropin?
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (let's just call it HCG for short) is a hormone that is produced during pregnancy by women to facilitate a normal and healthy pregnancy. HCG is not used by men, but it has some interesting similarities with a hormone that men use and need: Luteinizing Hormone.
Uses of HCG Injections
Today, Bio-Identical HCG can be made in a laboratory environment, and is used for a variety of medical purposes, for men and women of all ages. Here are a few of the uses of HCG:
- Bio-Identical Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is used for pediatric patients as a means to stimulate puberty in boys that do not have their testicles drop in a physiologically normal time frame.
- Injectable HCG is often prescribed to women that are having trouble conceiving a child. HCG activates the body so that the egg more readily implants in the womb.
- HCG Injections are used as a clinically proven weight loss therapy in combination with a strict diet to encourage weight loss without feeling hungry or tired.
- Testosterone Hormone Treatment is often combined with HCG Injections to maintain the production of Testosterone by the testes and the creation of Luteinizing Hormone by the Pituitary Gland, preserving sperm production and fertility in male patients that are taking Testosterone for Low-T and Andropause.
How Does Testosterone Treatment Affect the Function of the Testes?
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin imitates the function of Luteinizing Hormone in the male reproductive system. Testosterone Injections, Gels, and Creams are highly effective at restoring Free Testosterone to youthful and healthy levels, but, because the body is experiencing Testosterone Restoration through Exogenous Testosterone, the brain senses the increase in Testosterone Production and the hypothalamus sends signals to the pituitary gland to slow down production of Luteinizing Hormone and Follicle-Stimulating Hormone to compensate.
What is the Impact of Luteinizing Hormone Deficiency on Human Health?
This doesn't have any significant impact on human health, but it does lead to some aesthetic changes, as well as changes in fertility. If the testes are not receiving signals to produce Testosterone, they will stop producing as much Testosterone. One issue with Testosterone Therapy is that, for many months of therapy, the body gets so used to Bio-Identical Testosterone that it provides next to none of its own, which causes temporary infertility and causes the testes to shrink significantly.
How Does HCG Maintain Testosterone Production?
HCG is the answer to both of these clinical issues. By adding HCG to your Testosterone Regimen, you can keep your testes healthy and even maintain your fertility through months or even years of treatment. HCG is not a cure for Age-Related Testosterone Deficiency; it merely maintains Testosterone Levels as if you weren't undergoing Physician-Monitored Testosterone Restoration.
Is HCG Safe?
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is a very safe medical treatment that has been thoroughly tested in Clinical Research Studies. There are some HCG Side Effects to be aware of, however. These Side Effects of HCG Include:
- Skin Irritation
- A headache
- Lack of Energy
- Slight Increase in Estrogen Production (can be prevented with Estrogen Blockers)

Overweight or obese and having trouble losing weight? Try HCG for Weight Loss!
If you have a history of struggling with your weight, we also recommend HCG Injections. The combination of HCG and Caloric Restriction can help you lose weight quickly, without feeling exhausted, hungry, and irritable. Our patients have experienced weight loss results of as much as seven pounds per week on our clinical HCG Weight Loss Therapy.
HCG is a highly effective weight-loss aid for a few reasons. First, it dampens the sensation of hunger, helping you eat less while remaining satiated and in good spirits. Second, HCG encourages the body to burn fat over muscle. Caloric Restriction without HCG and Exercise can cause you to burn muscle mass before fat, which is the cause of fatigue associated with rapid weight loss, and is also the reason why it is so hard to maintain weight loss after crash dieting!
The combination of these two factors fantastically facilitates weight loss, helping you to reach your weight loss goals more quickly and easily without negatively affecting your body composition and quality of life.
