Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone produced by the placenta in pregnancy in women. Together with urine, this hormone is excreted from the body in an unchanged form. It is then extracted, purified and used to create drugs, to which it is included. Human chorionic gonadotropin has similar biological properties, like luteinizing hormone (gonadotropin hormone or gonadotropin). The latter is formed in the pituitary gland of the human brain.
Researches of scientists and doctors have shown inefficiency of the given preparation at the use inside in structure of food additives.
Today, various pharmaceutical companies are producing a large number of drugs that contain this hormone HCG. After intramuscular injection, this drug is well absorbed. The half-period of excretion is several hours, with the effect of one injection of this drug persisting for 5-6 days.
Injection chorionic gonadotropin is a dry substance enclosed in an ampoule (vial). To this bottle, containing the HCG hormone, an ampoule with liquid is used, intended for dissolution of this drug. Most often the liquid is a sodium chloride substance. The powder is readily soluble. The resulting mixture should be administered intramuscularly or subcutaneously. If not all of the liquid is used, the remainder should be sealed in a container and placed in a refrigerator. HCG powder is important to store in a dry dark place at a temperature of no higher than +25 degrees Celsius.
When taking HCG, you may experience the same side effects as when taking testosterone. The use of gonadotropin in large doses or for a long time leads to the suppression of the secretion of gonadotropin-releasing hormone, in connection with which the function of the physiological axis of the hypothalamus-pituitary-testicle is disrupted. Large doses (2000-5000 IU) are not recommended for longer than 20 days, although according to Michael Scally, M.D. And the provided is a series of studies, the desensitization of the testicles does not occur. 500 IU or hCG is administered less frequently 3 times a week. This protocol can be considered safe even for 1-2 months.
The information that gonadotropin can lead to symptoms of pregnancy is not absurd and not true.
