PREGNYL HCG 5000iu x 1 amp + 1 solvent 10ml
Pregnyl Stimulates the testes to produce Testosterone even when natural LH is not present or is deficient.
It is useful for maintaining Testosterone production and/or testicle size during a steroid cycle.
Use of this drug in the taper is rather counterproductive, since the resulting increased testosterone production is itself inhibitory to the hypothalamus and pituitary, delaying recovery.
If Pregnyl is used, it is preferably used during the cycle itself. A daily amount of 500 IU is normally sufficient, and usage should not exceed 1000 IU per day.
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, HCG, is also widely used with athletics today.
HCG is not a natural male hormone but mimics the natural hormone LH (Luetinising Hormone) almost identically.
LH stimulates the production of Testosterone by the testis in males. This HCG sends the same message which results in increased Testosterone production by the testis due to the effect of HCG on the leydig cells of the testis.
Athletes use HCG to increase the body's own natural Testosterone production which is often depressed by long term steroid use.
Human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) Itís sometimes called the pregnancy hormone because of its unique role in supporting a pregnancy. HCG is found in your urine or blood around 10 to 11 days after conception (when a sperm fertilizes an egg). Your HCG Levels are the highest towards the end of the first trimester (10 weeks of pregnancy), then decline for the rest of your pregnancy. Healthcare providers measure hCG to confirm a pregnancy and provide details on how the pregnancy is progressing.
After conception occurs, a fertilized egg travels through your fallopian tubes to your uterus. The fertilized egg (called an embryo) implants (attaches) into the wall of your uterus. This triggers the placenta to form. Your placenta begins producing and releasing hCG into your blood and urine. HCG can be found in a personís blood around 11 days after conception. It takes slightly longer for hCG to register on urine tests.
HCG increases quickly (almost doubling every three days) for the first eight to 10 weeks of pregnancy.
