HCG Procurement/Availability?

I have a script for HCG through my Urologist. I went to fill the script the other day at my local specialty pharmacy and they told me they are no longer dispense HCG. Apparently specialty pharmacies now need a Biologics License to dispense certain drugs, including HCG? I was purchasing a 12,000iu vial for $70. It seems only the big companies have HCG now and as a result have jacked-up the prices exponentially. I can go through my insurance, but what a total hassle with prior authorizations etc… Can anyone please clarify what has happened to the availability of HCG. Thx!

Empower still has it. The FDA or whoever quit allowing a certain type of compounding pharmacy from making it. Those with the correct cert can still make it. I still get 6000 IU’s from Empower for like $50 I think? The legit pharmaceutical stuff should be available no problem, so I’m not sure why you can’t get it

It’s simply been reclassified as a biologic. Different license required. Several pharmacies have already received or are getting the required license. It’s a non issue.

On YouTuber called TRT Test Your Levels made a clickbait vid claiming it was no longer available and provided a link to purchase another med. Misinformation like that drives me nuts.

I saw some clinics started to offer kisspeltine10 instead but how tested and safe is that thing?

Ask Jean François Tremblay… He’s in our FB group and has been studying peptides since the eighties. I’ve got a few vials sitting in my fridge that he sent me that I havent tried out yet.
