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. In women, HCG supports egg development within the ovaries and stimulates ovulation, and it can be used as an infertility treatment.
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).
If you're looking to start a family while on a TRT protocol, supplementing with HCG can help you maintain fertility. Because exogenous testosterone can reduce fertility in many men who begin a TRT protocol, it's important to consider your fertility options.Learn more about HGG for Fertility
