HCG significance for men.
HCG significance for men.
Human chorionic gonadotropin is a hormone found only in the placenta of pregnant women. For women has no significant role, but for sportsmen, it has some very interesting characteristics. It can simulate luteinizing hormone (HL), which is secreted by the pituitary gland that gives the testosterone signal. Sex hormones act through a negative feedback, when present in excessive amounts (such as steroids androgen or estrogen), send a signal to the brain to stop the secretion of LH. During steroid cycles that last long periods, if own testosterone is too long suppressed, testicles begin to atrophy until they lose functionality. The administration of the luteinizing hormone similar can play testicular function and their return to normal size. This is the main use of HCG.
Because testosterone produces muscle accumulation in the body, it can have some anabolic properties, but insignificant. Therefore, it is used by athletes in this purpose. But for someone who follows a cycle of steroids is almost essential. In order to keep the gains obtained during the steroid cycle is important to bring the testosterone levels to normal. Without a natural endocrine, it cannot be kept a mass bigger than the initial one.
HCG suppresses testosterone production by luteinizing hormone replacement. HL is secreted by the pituitary gland as a response to the hypothalamus to release another hormone, gonadotropin hormone. The agent that simulates HL introduces exogenous negative feedback and hypothalamus sends a signal to stop production of the hormone gonadotropin, and implicitly that of HL. Therefore, HCG is used with Clomid or Nolvadex always. When the androgen level in the body decreases, clomid or Nolvadex will lower estrogenic response steroidal inducing a deficit that will signal the hypothalamus to release gonadotropin hormone. It is important that HCG to be used in combination with one of these two drugs, and its administration to be discontinued at least 2 weeks before they stop taking Nolvadex or Clomid.
Also, prolonged use of HCG can desensitize the testicles to HL, which would mean getting back where you started. Side effects that may occur in some cases are acne and hair loss or prostate hypertrophy, but normally uses of maximum 3-4 weeks are too short timed for these effects to be manifested. HCG is a fertility drug that can also cause high blood pressure. HCG is used during powerful steroid cycles to prevent testicular atrophy or to get atrophied testicles back to their normal state.
