HCG for Testicular Pains

My testicles hurt since last February and I had an ultrasound in March 2013 which ruled out anything grossly abnormal. I had just a little bit of a hydrocele which was treated with an antibiotic and an ibuprofen for inflammation and pain.

Now that I’ve been on TRT for 2 months, my testicles are REALLY starting to hurt more. I have an appointment with my doctor after Christmas. I am going to see if he’ll prescribe HCG for me.

My questions are:

  1. How long after taking HCG injections does the testicular pain subside, in general?
  2. Do you see the added benefit of fat loss when on HCG and if so, how long does that take?


The ache goes away fast, 24hrs after the first shot ime.
It won’t do anything for fat loss though.
