When patients come into our office and ask us about what prescriptions they will need for their program, sometimes they are unsure why they get (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) HCG on a TRT program. Some may think a testosterone replacement therapy program is just about infusing your body with the T hormone, but it’s actually more complex and there are a few ways to kickstart your testosterone levels.
Incorporating HCG into our program comes with a ton of benefits. Some men will only be on HCG, especially if they are planning on reproducing. HCG helps to maintain fertility, whereas T can decrease fertility (but don’t think this means you can’t reproduce, because it doesn’t mean you will become sterile. So if you’re putting off the vasectomy, DON’T). Additionally, HCG helps promote an improvement in libido, cognitive function and helps prevent testicular atrophy (shrinkage), all while telling your body to produce more testosterone – basically the way nature intended.
Simply put, HCG helps communicate with your brain that your body needs to make more testosterone. This is why we love using HCG in our programs; it helps your body realize it needs to make more testosterone on its own, rather than telling your body you will just supply it with testosterone and it can just stop doing what it needs to do. HCG helps remind nature that it needs to kick into gear and get your hormones going!
