You should expect your FSH and LH to be low if you’re taking in enough exogenous T. That’s just the biological feedback system working.
HCG will NOT improve your FSH or LH levels. As a matter of fact, it will kill these levels even more.
Only something like Clomid or Novaldex has a prayer of increasing the LH and FSH. I’m not completely sure, but I don’t think clomid or novaldex is very effective at increasing LH in the presence of exogenous T but again, I think it depends on the amount of T used.
In my opinion, the only good uses for HCG are for those who go on very extended steroid cycles where the possibility of testical shrinkage could occur. It is also invaluable in a methodical approach to determining whether you have primary or secondary hypogonadism; HCG followed by blood testing can evaluate whether the nuts are really working (if they are, then low testosterone is caused by low LH…this is where the Clomid comes in. If T does not rise appreciably with HCG injection, then you need to go on TRT).
I’ve been on Test Cyp (150mg every 5 days) and my T levels are at 792, so within the normal range. Free Testosterone is not too high, but still within normal.
Anyway, my FSH and LH levels are below the normal range, which is to be expected.
What should I do to counteract this, is HCG the answer? If so, what dosage would you recommend.
I plan on discussing this with my doc, but just in case that he’s not too familiar with HCG I wanted to have some backup.
