If you are a man, do not let the fact that human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is referred to as the pregnancy hormone deter you from considering HCG treatment. It is actually a natural form of testosterone therapy, and unlike traditional testosterone therapy, it does not lower sperm counts.

If you want to father a child in the near future, HCG may be a good alternative to testosterone with potentially the same therapeutic benefits. a professional and skilled doctor could determine whether you are a candidate for Connecticut human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) treatment and devise the correct dosage for your HCG injections.

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin

HCG receives the pregnancy hormone moniker because in expectant mothers, it aids in maintaining the pregnancy by supporting the uterine lining. However, it is also used for fertility treatment in both sexes, and in men it can either increase testosterone levels or bring low testosterone levels back within normal range.

It should additionally increase sperm production for men trying to sire offspring. Sperm levels should rise within three months of commencing HCG treatment. HCG also boosts male libido and lessens the possibility of erectile dysfunction.

Furthermore, for men who have used anabolic steroids for a long time resulting in testosterone loss, HCG treatment can restore testosterone levels. Adolescent males suffering from sexual abnormalities, including undescended testicles, may also benefit from this kind of hormone treatment.

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Treatment, Side Effects, and Contraindications

In males, HCG treatment works by essentially “reminding” the testicles that they must produce testosterone. In addition to boosting sperm counts, HCG may increase muscle mass, bone density and improve general athletic ability.

Patients must inject themselves with HCG, either into the muscle or skin. Because HCG is a natural hormone, it generally has few side effects, and those that do occur are generally mild and either disappear within a few weeks or reverse themselves with a change in dosage. Such side effects include:

  • Acne
  • Dizziness
  • Hair loss
  • Headaches
  • Mood swings
  • Nausea

Some patients may experience cold-like symptoms. In addition, some men may find their breasts enlarging, a condition known as gynecomastia.

It should be noted that not everyone is a candidate for HCG treatment. Men with prostrate or other forms of cancer should not receive HCG injections, nor should those prone to seizures or migraines or patients with a history of cardiovascular disease.

How Connecticut Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) Treatment Could Help

A doctor can determine HCG levels through blood and urine samples and, with that information, derive an appropriate initial HCG dosage level. Patients should inform the doctor about any medication—prescription or over-the-counter—they are currently taking, as well as any supplements they use.

The doctor may also recommend a low-calorie diet to aid in weight loss. This diet, in conjunction with HCG injections, causes the body to burn more fat. Since every patient’s needs are unique, the diet is custom-tailored for each individual but typically consists mainly of lean proteins such as fish and poultry, along with fruits and vegetables. The doctor may also recommend an individualized exercise plan for each patient.
