I find it rather amusing that guys have no problems taking copious amonuts of various steroids and steroid derivatives, but find something that helps preserve your functioning as a man to be “detrimental”.
Not passing judgment on you, just amused at the “creativity” of that thought process.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with long term, proper dose use of HCG. Even less so when you are on cycles. The benefits far outweigh the negatives (whatever those may be perceived to be).[/quote]
I think they’re misinterpreting some of the same info I read on HCG prior to my first time. HCG IF overused can be detrimental. The key word being if. Just read the stickies and follow the outlined plan. [/quote]
Right. And by overused, we are not talking frequency or longevity. We are talking about VOLUME. The insanely idiotic protocols of blasting your balls with 10,000 iu of HCG 3x/week, or whatever bodybuildin lore is leftover from yesteryear actually calls for, has potential to do damage to your balls (desensitize your leydig cells). Even this damage is questionable on whether or not it occurs in a medical setting, and even less clear is whether it is long term or temporary.
The real problem, I suspect, is people just don’t understand the mechanisms of action of the drugs they are putting into their bodies. HCG pretty much just mimics LH at the leydig cells of the testes, resulting in T production and spermagenesis (I misspelled that). So obvioulsy the goal should be to replicate this natural LH production, as much as possible, meaning not to overdrive the testes. If the dosage is kept at reasonable levels (750 iu or less per week, in divided doses) then there is absolutely no harm in long term use (from a testicular output perspective).
