Since I have seen so many differing opinions on the best way to use HCG I wanted to start a thread for this specific topic and get all the opinions in one place. There seems to mainly be three schools of thought pertaining to the best method of using HCG for restarting HPTA, and they are as follows:
1) 2000-5000 iu. once a week for three weeks starting the last week that AAS is active in your system.
2) ~1500 iu. once every few weeks throughout the cycle.
3) 500 iu. once a week throughout the cycle.
Which would the experienced here recommend? The third method makes the most sense to me because testicular atrophy should be completely avoided by never allowing shutdown. However, I have read that long term exposure to HCG can permanently desensitize the Leydig cells, which would be undesirable to say the least. Proponents of this method assert that 500 iu. a week would not be sufficient to cause this desensitization.
