First of all, it should be noted that this substance (HCG 5000IU), along with follicle-stimulating and luteinizing hormone, belongs to gonadotropic hormones, from which it differs in amino acid sequence. This is why it is called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG). It is also important to say that gonadotropin in its “composition” includes 237 amino acids, and its molecular weight is 36.7 kilodaltons. After administration, this hormone is well absorbed. Its half-life is about 72 hours.
Gonadotropin and its positive effects
When anabolic steroids are taken, the pituitary gland in the brain stops producing LH (luteinizing hormone), which, in turn, does not allow Leydig cells to secrete testosterone.
HCG can play a role in preventing a decrease in testosterone levels, simulating the effect of LH in the body. This tricks the Leydig cells in producing testosterone even in the presence of an anabolic steroid.
What dosage of HCG should be used?
There are two ways to use HCG while cycling and two ways to use it while on long-term testosterone replacement therapy (TRT):
The first way is to use a smaller amount throughout the cycle (or throughout TRT) to maintain testicular function on a steady basis. Usually 250IU per week is the common dose if using HCG during a cycle or during TRT. If you are using HCG during a cycle, then the use of HCG is not necessary after a cycle or during TRT at any time.
The second way to use HCG is to inject it at higher dosages in shorter intervals, and use it every so often if you’re on TRT. A lot of people will use a 5,000IU vial over the course of a 2-week period or once every 10-12 weeks during testosterone replacement therapy (1250IU 2x per week for 2 weeks).
You may ask yourself why it’s commonly run in 2 different manners and there are a couple reasons for that.
For starters, HCG has a shelf life of about 30 days once it’s mixed with bacteriostatic water. A lot of vials come in 5,000IU vials, so your HCG is going to go bad before using it all, if you were to run 250IU a week steady throughout.
The next point to this is that some users feel that it takes a more substantial amount of HCG per injection to really stimulate the testes and this falls more along the lines of cosmetic reasons rather than fertility reasons (users do not want to see their testes shrink during AAS use).
For fertility reasons, running HCG throughout is suggestively the better route to go because you’re constantly stimulating the follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone without backing off intermittently.
How administer HCG safely
The easiest way to inject HCG is to use a 1ml insulin syringe. You will need some bacteriostatic water and since the vial is 5,000IU you will mix 1ml of bacteriostatic water into your vial of powder. (When mixing be sure to add the water slowly and then rotate clockwise gently until all the powder is dissolved in the liquid).
A 1ml insulin syringe has marks on the side of it that start at 10 and follow with 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100. So if 100 units of water represents 5,000IU of HCG, then you know that for every 10 mark on the syringe it’s 500IU of HCG once it’s drawn into the syringe. Therefore, if you wanted to use 250IU each week then you’d fill to 5 clicks on the insulin pin (halfway to the 10 mark) and inject it.
It is best to inject the day before your testosterone shot, since this is the day your test levels will fall the lowest during your cycle. The HCG will help raise the testosterone levels in your body and it’s approximate 72-hour life will carry over halfway through the week and this is enough to avoid testicular atrophy.
It is suggested the same for guys on TRT, just administer a 250IU shot the day before your steroid injection. If you only get one injection of testosterone every 2 weeks, then you’ll need to do it twice in that 2-week period.
If your taking HCG every once in a while on TRT or using it strictly for 2 weeks post cycle, then you’d want to fill to the 25-unit mark on your pin. (There really is no “25-unit” mark on an insulin syringe, it’s the “20 mark” plus 5 units and inject that twice a week evenly spaced apart (e.g. Monday and Thursday) 25IU x 4 = 5,000IU HCG, so 2 weeks of HCG at 2,500IU per week.)
The reason you will want to switch injections to twice a week when using HCG, is because HCG can make you gynaecomastia prone, if there is too much oestrogen conversion while stimulating your testosterone levels.
Remember that during HCG use, you will want to use an aromatase inhibitor such as Exemestane or Arimidex at 1/2 mg every day for the 2 weeks, to insure you counterbalance any side effects and keep yourself at optimum health.

This is an excellent HCG. My boys recover almost immediately after using it, and it also provides positive effects for pct. I administer two injections of HCG 5000IU (250 IU) a week throughout my cycle, and I choose to insert 500 IU every morning once I’m steady.

HCG 5000IU’s fantastically low cost makes it a solid deal. I have never been in a position to use it with a pregnancy test, but it works well! Comes with a solution, but unfortunately, I bought water that has been bacteriostatic to extend its longevity. Using this during the whole cycle and eight weeks without a plunger can tell you about this good deal. I hope to use the product for post-cycle therapy and am looking forward to being tested.

On TRT for about 2 months and no clinic in town is selling HCG so I tried this HCG 5000IU online and just finished my first vial of 1200mg a week split into every other day. To make it last a month, I also had to order bacteriostatic water. When mixed with sodium chloride water, it has a shelf life of less than a week, which is acceptable for males on pct because they blast 5,000–10,000 iu every week in a single shot. However, since we guys take smaller doses for fertility or testicular atrophy, we need to mix it with bac water. But this HCG is functional.

I had to come back to give another review. My LH was >0.1 when I first had labs drawn prior to starting HCG 5000IU. After three weeks of merely 1,000 IU per week divided into every other day 250 IU IM injections, my LH is now above 5. This is incredible! This is absolute HCG! And intend to continue using it.

I used HCG 5000IUthree times a week at 500 iu per pin and had excellent results. Using this with Test 250 x 2 times and Proviron 50 mg split the dosage and have felt a tremendous change in my TRT. HCG 5000IU is really a great product.

HCG 5000IU really works as expected. There is no injection site inflammation, redness, or edema. Smooth and without pain. The benefits of HCG 5000IU are real. I have been using HCG 5000IU for almost one month now, and I feel great. No more sugar cravings, no more hunger pains, no more binges at all.

I currently utilize this HCG in a dose of 500 Iu EoD in conjunction with TRT. I made a lot of purchases of HCG 5000IU at a fair price, and I’m really happy. keeping my sperm count over 75 million while on TRT (I had 20 million with another brand of HCG on cycle and nearly none without any HCG/HMG). very successful No matter how many things you take, I’m quite sure it keeps your balls from drying out.
Maynard Speer –
I took 500iu of HCG 5000IU every third day while on a Dbol, Winstrol, and Sustanon cycle. During the cycle, there was no testicular atrophy. The benefits of this HCG product were many, including less water retention, no gyno, and it helped me gain about 10 pounds. It works better than other HCG because the gains are more noticeable in my opinion.

Has worked really well for me in terms of restoring fertility in combination with Clomid.

When selecting my gonadotropins, I always stick with Bharat Serums, as this company perfects thier hCG! clerkenwell-london-com has done a good job in sticking these generic brands within their catalouge, as with other bigger branded comapnies, their hCG is not as good. I have been using this product for nealry two years now and never had a hick up. Does the job perfectly and is not bad on price either. Outstanding substance!
