I have been to well over a dozen docs (mix of Urologists, Endocrinologists, Family Docs, and an OBGYN)…none of them will subscribe HCG. Add in the fact that even if they would, my insurance won’t cover it and I am kind of stuck looking for an alternative.
From my understanding, HCG mimics Lutenizing Hormone (LH) that is shut down due to no releasing of Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone (GnRH). Again, from my understanding, the LH triggers the body to convert Cholesterol into Pregnenolone and DHEA which then convert into several other hormones. I have read of many that recommend taking DHEA if your doctor won’t prescribe HCG. This makes sense for maintaining testicle size and Testosterone production. However, Pregnenolone also breaks down into Cortisol and some other important hormones. Does it make sense to take Pregnenolone instead of DHEA? Or in addition to it??
In short, I can’ take HCG. Should I take DHEA? Or Pregnenolone?? Or a combination of both???
