    HCG and clomiphene citrate...same?


    I have BCBS insurance. The list clomiphene citrate as an alt. to HCG, is it the same thing?

    No, clomiphene (generic for clomid) is a SERM used to restart your natural LH and testosterone. Generally used for a few months. I went this route and it worked for me.

    HCG is a LH analog (shot) used to signal the testicles to produce testosterone. HCG must be continued indefinately, and is often combined with T shots to preserve testicles and fertility.

    From insurer's perspective, they may be deemed substitutes in terms of their use for women -- fertility meds.

    Well HCG is a peptide hormone produced during pregnancy.

    And Clomid is a fertility drug that induces ovulation.

    So they're probly lumped into the same fertility category.
