Industry Changes to HCG Access (2021)

Due to new FDA regulations, access to compounded HCG is now extremely restricted and is likely to stop altogether.

This means an already low supply of commercial HCG will become limited as more and more patients are forced to rely on expensive, brand-name medication.

Unfortunately, this is an industry-wide issue, and all clinics, providers, pharmacies, and patients are expected to experience the effects at some point.

Defy Medical is committed to guiding our patients through the changing regulatory landscape and providing safe and effective access and options.

Are there any compounded HCG alternatives?

Depending on your state and your reason for taking HCG, you may have options available.

You may be able to access brand-name HCG depending on local availability or you may choose to replace your HCG with another effective medication to treat your symptoms or achieve your goals.  

Defy Medical has created protocols to help our patients access medications to address concerns like testicular atrophy, low libido, fertility, and others.

HCG and TRT: Why use HCG while on a TRT protocol?
Juvéderm for Lips Defy Medical 04

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, abbreviated as HCG, is a naturally occurring hormone found in both men and women. HCG performs many different functions throughout the body.

HCG for men mimics the effects of Luteinizing Hormone (LH), which stimulates the testicles to release testosterone. HCG can be supplemented for many different reasons, including as a treatment for hypogonadism and low sperm count. 

For men on Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT), HCG injections are often prescribed to combat the testicular shrinkage that can occur as a result of a TRT protocol. In this way, TRT and HCG injections can work together to provide a synergistic treatment plan.

The reason men on TRT can experience testicular atrophy is because the body recognizes that it’s receiving testosterone from an external source, so it shuts down its own natural production. This is a normal biological reaction that occurs with many different medications and supplements. When the testes stop producing testosterone, they typically go dormant, which can lead to testicular shrinkage and testicular atrophy. 

When you supplement with the HCG hormone, the testes are stimulated to continue producing testosterone, which means they do not go dormant.

This is also helpful if you ever plan to stop your TRT protocol, because your testes will still be active and producing testosterone (though you will likely experience a return of the low-T symptoms that made you start TRT in the first place).
