Medical recommendations used to be and maybe still generally are for extreme doses of HCG such as even 5000 IU at a time, but I established long ago that this was ridiculous and no more than 500 IU should be taken at a time. Generally speaking 250 IU at a time 3x/week or every other day is plenty.
At least one doctor specializing in male hormone replacement therapy has taken up or independently adopted (I don’t know which) this protocol. It’s well proven.
Amounts like 2500 or 5000 IU at a time are just extreme overdoses.
I have read on a number of occasions that all that amount does is serve to give a massive boost in testosterone which does nothing beneficial but aromatize and give negative feedback… continuing or worsening HPTA suppression… well, HP suppression at least.
I know that annecdotally on this site many people have come to the conclusion that 50-100iu taken daily or maybe every other day, is enough to keep the testes ticking over without causing any noticeable or additional suppression or estrogenic sides.
I will vouch for the effectiveness of 100iu eod during cycle. I had great results in terms of preventing testicular atrophy during this for 10 weeks during a test/tren/mast cycle.
