HCG Shows Evidence of use During Testosterone Therapy
Men using Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) has become very popular, but with out a dark side. One of the side effects for patients is testicular atrophy, or reduction in there own production of Testosterone and sperm. For most clients on TRT they plan on being on it for a long time and some may want to take a break. Using HCG during TRT prevents your own body from stoping or slowing down its own production of Testosterone and sperm. Men have leydig cell that produce Testosterone and while on TRT they do not have to produce as much or in some cases any. HCG will keep them functioning during TRT. If a client wants to take a break, his hormone level will return back to where there were before he started in very little time. With out HCG during TRT men will notice a decrease in size of testicals and if they stop TRT it will take more time to return to previous state.
In 2013 the American Urological Association published a Study confirming the need for HCG during Testosterone Replacement Therapy.The Study Concluded: “Low dose human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) appears to maintain semen parameters in hypogonadal men on testosterone replacement therapy. Concurrent testosterone replacement and human chorionic gonadotropin use may preserve fertility in hypogonadal males who desire fertility preservation while on testosterone replacement therapy.” Dr. Aaron Stowell NMD, DC Reference: Hsieh TC1, Pastuszak AW, Hwang K, Lipshultz LI. Concomitant intramuscular human chorionic gonadotropin preserves spermatogenesis in men undergoing testosterone replacement therapy.
