I didn't mean to insinuate that hcg shouldn't be taken, just that with twice/thrice weekly shots, it becomes much less complicated. You don't have to guess when your T is falling off and when you might need a boost of hcg to restore it--just shoot your hcg when you shoot your test (2-3x/week).
The need for OP's complicated protocol is because once a week shot allow for a drop off in T levels towards the end of the week. The hcg in that protocol is not used for preserving testicular fullness as much as it is used to actually replace your falling T levels.
IMO, hcg should be used for maintaining fullness/function only. There is a reason you are on exogenous T. If one could maintain normal testicular output, including testosterone, by HCG alone, then there would be no need for the exogenous T. Shooting both at the same time 2-3x/week makes far more sense if your goal is to keep levels stable AND maintain your boys.
