After all, the hormone affects testosterone production.
Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a hormone that's produced in the placenta of pregnant women. In men, it’s prescribed to increase the production of testosterone.
The physiological analog of HCG in men is the luteinizing hormone (LH) produced in the pituitary gland. That's why HCG therapy in men has the exact same effect as LH normally has: stimulating the body to produce more testosterone. This is especially beneficial for men suffering from hypogonadism (low testosterone) or undergoing hormone replacement therapy.
HCG is sold in powder form that can then be mixed with liquid, but it’s also available in syringes ready for injection. It is typically injected into a muscle or under the skin, and this can be done at home.
However, we’ll have to remind you that you’ll need to acquire a prescription to actually purchase HCG in pharmacies. Of course, it’s best to avoid black market alternatives for safety measures.
The hormone should be taken exactly as the doctor prescribed. It should not be used in large amounts and for longer than what is recommended by your physician.
