is not a steroid, but a naturally occurring peptide hormone. HCG is a
glycoprotein composed of 237 amino acids and has a mass of
36.7kDa. HCG basically "acts" as Leutenizing Hormone (LH) in your body.
LH is a Gonadotropin. HCG offers no potential performance enhancement in
female athletes, but
does prove to be very useful in male athletes especially those that use
AAS. As stated above HCG in males is similar to LH, because they are
similar and LH binds to receptors on leydig cells stimulating synthesis
and secretion of testosterone, the use of HCG would be an added bonus to
ASS users even if there is a lack of endogenous LH. Since HCG increases
the bodys natural testosterone levels
its use during long or extremely high dosed cycles can be most
beneficial were the effects on the hypothalamus causes a depressed
signal to the testicles. The result of the depressed signal leads to
what is known as testicular atrophy (shrunken nuts). The use of HCG will
send an artificial signal to the testes (again, as if it were actually
LH), thus preventing (to some degree) atrophy. It not only helps to
maintain testicular size and condition but it will also help in
restoring testicles back to their original size. At a time when below
levels (due to ASS use) could become costly. Restarting natural
testosterone production as quickly as possible is of a special concern
in males at the end of a cycle of AAS. The price paid by bodybuilders
for failing to raise natural test levels is the loss of most if not all
the hard earned muscle you have gained, the main cause is cortisol.
Cortisol sends a message to the muscles that is opposite to that of
testosterone. If cortisol is not dealt with (because of an extremely low
testosterone level) it will quickly strip away the new and hard earned
muscle you have just gotten!
Some users find that they have better gains and quicker recovery while
using HCG during a cycle of AAS. This first claim is more than likely
due to the fact that the body has a high level of natural testosterone
as well as that provided by the use of AAS, and the second may be
somewhat justifiable, as stimulating the testes to secrete testosterone
intermittently may aid recovery.
To be on the safe side shorter
cycles of HCG seem to be that of the
norm. Most users cycle HCG near the end of a steroid cycle, you should
start your HCG therapy when the cycle is finished. For best results
you should also run Tamoxifen while you run HCG as taking HCG by itself
do little to nothing and gyno even though rare may also flair up. Once
the HCG cycle is finished you continue with your usual Clomiphene or
Tamoxifen for PCT as it is more effective when used in
conjunction HCG for pct. With an AAS cycle of 6 to 10 weeks HCG may not
be necessary unless extreme doses of AAS were used or there is an
existing problem of testicular atrophy or you are running a heavy oral
only cycle. AAS cycles of 12 or more weeks should have HCG as a part of
post cycle plan.
