    HCG not covered! What now?


    How weird. The province of Quebec, in Canada pays for 99% of all meds including my testosterone, but a 10,000ui ampoule of HCG costs 70$. And that's the smallest (and the only) size this province has.

    So now I got a legit script for 3 months of 2x250ml a week HCG script from my endo... should I just try some sort of online pharmacy? IS this script even worth anything if I am going to order online?

    Help me out guys. I know some of oyu were in the same situation.... Or get some of that HCG for me phatkid lol. I'll send you a script.

    Ahhh damn Canada.

    Seems easiest to just pay the $70. Legal and it'll last for a long time...

    Keep it alaways in refrigirator.
    Minimize handlig, so you do not heat the vial.
    Handle with tips of fingers only, so you do not heat it.
    Minimize time outside of refrigirator.
    Will last 3 months.

    If HCG is not reconstituted, is it fine in room temp for a while?

    hCG in the box is fine at room temperature. In fact the box says to store at room temperature.

    Very interesting! That would definitely cut down on the cost!

    So basically, just draw and put right back in the fridge ASAP?

    My box is in another language

    I've been getting Organon Pregnyl and just saving it, since I'm worried my endo will not treat with it. I'm changing dr's as soon as my latest bloodwork is done with her unless I can convince her to utilize HCG in her treatment. She says it's not needed unless I am aiming for fertility, and that while being on testosterone, one's fertility disappears anyhow. I said 'yes - this is the reason to continuously treat with HCG while on TRT', plus I will explain the need for it in case I ever decide to come off.

    My endo's reasoning was that at 100mg a week of test the HPTA wouldn't be supressed enough to warrant HCG. But I convinced him to give it to me anyway.

    I just got my HCG script refilled today. Novarel of course was out of stock so they gave me a 'generic' version from Abraxis. Unlike Novarel, this version is good for 60 days once you reconstitute it. If you get this brand that may offset your costs a little since you will not get through your 10ML bottle in 1 month.

    I suggest pushing the issue with "insurance". I don't know how Canada's system works but most US Insurance Co's don't cover it either. They typically tell the Pharmacist no but issue an override when pressed.

    Something for all of you to show your endos:

    Low-Dose Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Maintains Intratesticular Testosterone in Normal Men with Testosterone-Induced Gonadotropin Suppression

    http://jcem.endojournals.org/cgi/con...urcetype=HWCIT

    @ Bungloid: "Exogenous T has been shown to dramatically suppress gonadotropin release when administered at supraphysiological as well as physiological doses"

    For all: "The dose of hCG required to maintain baseline ITT concentrations in men with maximal gonadotropin suppression is significantly lower than that historically used in the treatment of infertility due to hypogonadotropic hypogonadism."
