HCG in PCT (post anabolic steroid cycle treatment)
In bodybuilding pharmacology HCG is one of the most misunderstood, misused and underutilized tools available. A bodybuilder who cares about his body functioning properly should never sacrifice his health for muscle gains. After every anabolic steroid cycle, the body’s own testosterone production must be fully restored.
When external androgenic anabolic steroids (AAS) are introduced into the male body the natural negative-feedback loop causes the body to shut down its own production of testosterone via shutdown of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis (HPGA). In other words, when the body senses there is too much testosterone flowing around, it stops producing more of it.
High levels of anabolic steroids, which mimic the body’s natural testosterone, cause the hypothalamus to stop its production of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH). Without GnRH, the pituitary gland stops making the luteinizing hormone (LH). Without LH, the testes shut down the body’s production of testosterone.
The longer the testes are not getting the lutheinizing hormone, the more the cells within the testes known as leydig cells – (which are normally activated by LH) become desensitized. The testicular degeneration starts with reduction of leydig cell volume, followed by rapid reductions in intra testicular testosterone (ITT), peroxisomes, and Insulin-like factor 3 (INSL3). This is the reason why some men never completely recover after a long steroid cycle. In such cases the testes have stayed inactive for too long and have become permanently damaged and desensitized.
HCG during AAS cycle (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin during steroid cycle)
To prevent permanent shutdown of testosterone production a low dose of human chorionic gonadotropin (250IU 2 or 3 times per week) is used during the steroid cycle. One must be careful and avoid dosing too high or too frequently as that can also desensitize the testes. The HCG dosage and the interval must be just right to stimulate the leydig cells to produce the same amount of testosterone as they normally would. The saying more is better definitely does not apply to the use of HCG. Human chorionic gonadotropin must be continued for as long as the steroids are active in the body and preferably 1-2 week beyond.
