HCG Dose Not High Enough?


Was finally prescribed HCG after about 5 yrs on gel without. Started on Feb 16. Was prescribed 500iu/wk, just curious if this is a waste of time? It seems the “standard” dosage while on trt is 250iu eod. My current protocol is 40mg Tcyp m-w-f and 100iu of hcg every morning. Any benefit to just doing 250iu twice a week versus every day inj?


I think most here are on 250iu/3x weekly. I found that I could do 250iu twice weekly and still be good. I was dosing on Monday, Thursday, and Saturday but more often than not I would miss my Saturday dose. I couldn’t tell a difference honestly.
