Human Chorionic Gonadotropinis one of the most common hormones used by anabolic steroid users; however it is not an anabolic steroid, it belongs to the peptide family. Sometimes simply referred to as “hCG” Human Chorionic Gonadotropin was first used in medical practice for the purposes of aiding women who may suffer the inability to induce ovulation, as well as increase testosterone in men who suffer from low levels. It is in the hormones purpose of testicular stimulation many may find an interest and we’ll delve intoHuman Chorionic Gonadotropin in that regards here.
When we look at Human Chorionic Gonadotropin this peptide hormone does not provide a performance enhancing trait(s) in terms we can directly attribute to many other hormones but more of an indirect action due to the benefit of testicular stimulation. When we use anabolic steroids our natural testosterone production comes to a halt until the recovery process takes place after a cycle. As you may recall, for natural testosterone production to occur our thyroid must release a Leutenizing hormone which in-turn signals the testes to begin production; with the use of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin we can artificially simulate the release of the Leutenizing hormone and increase testosterone production.
Let’s get one thing straight, if we use Human Chorionic Gonadotropin during our anabolic cycle we have not created a scenario where our natural testosterone production is all-in-all “saved” but rather we’ve created an artificial stimulation allowing for an easier transition for when we do come off cycle. As most steroid users will notice, when we are on cycle our testicles shrink; they shrink due to no testosterone being made; withHuman Chorionic Gonadotropin use during a cycle, in-turn simulating the release of Leutenizing hormones we can keep our testicles somewhat full; at least to a degree. Many steroid users report an ease into recovery when they use this peptide hormone for this reason. Further, some anabolic steroid users who do not use exogenous testosterone as part of their anabolic stack may find the use of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin during a cycle of the utmost importance. We need testosterone in our system for proper function and if we are on cycle and not using testosterone we need something that will at least give us somewhat of an added bump; Human Chorionic Gonadotropin can serve this purpose well.
Perhaps the most beneficial use of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin for any anabolic steroid user is after the cycle is complete and by “perhaps” we mean without a doubt this is the best time. As many of you understand, the weeks that follow the end of an anabolic steroid cycle are the most important in-terms of keeping the gains made while on cycle and this can at times be a very difficult process. When we come off cycle we have no natural testosterone production and we obviously have no exogenous testosterone to pull from. With the use of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin during our post cycle therapy we can speed up the release and production of our natural testosterone and the speed of this recovery will greatly aid in the overall recovery post cycle; enabling us to keep a lot more of our hard earned muscle.
Most individuals will find a continuous dosing of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin for ten (10) to fourteen (14) days after their cycle to be the missing link in a full recovery. With the use of this peptide in our PCT we greatly speed up recovery by stimulating and priming our testes for normal function. By increasing this speed of recovery we eliminate the buildup of high levels of cortisol and see a happy individual in the end.
Dosing will vary from person to person; generally 300iu-500iu per dose if used during cycle and administered every five (5) to seven (7) days. When we use Human Chorionic Gonadotropin as part of our post cycle therapy, generally dosing will be 1000iu-1500iu every day. Keep in mind, too much Human Chorionic Gonadotropin can permanently shut down your natural testosterone production but in this case we’re talking about continuous use for a very extended amount of time and most will never come close to this extent of use. As with all hormones, consult your physician about proper use and dosing and find what best meets your needs. Wherever the dose may fall, you will find this peptide to be extremely beneficial all the while making your experience that much more pleasant.
