HCG Dosage


I have been on TRt for almost a year and my doc just wrote me a script for 500iu of Hcg three times a week and I think that might be a little too much. I just want my balls to be a little larger than marbles.

Some guys do this amount, some much less. I'm inclined to start at 250iu a week and move up, but I wanted some feedback.

Any ideas?


I agree. You are getting your T cost effectively from T injections. More hCG is costly and risks high T–>E2 inside the testes where anastrozole is not effective. If testes have been aching, that should resolve quickly.

Some do see T increase with 250iu SC EOD. However, that depends on state of testes and how they recover, age etc.


Thanks for the response! Will duly note and govern myself accordingly.
