    Question Best usage of HCG


    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.

    Opinions?

    I agree with number 3, only I go 500 iu's twice a week. I still do not see this as an amount that would desensetize the Leydig cells, but that is just my opinion.

    I'm going to try #3 on my next cycle I think. I'll be using something like #1 this time around, it's worked for me in the past.

    well if my math is right, and you havent reconstituted it. All you would need to do is get a 30 ml vial of bacteriostatic water, remove 10 mls and discard. then remove enough of the water to reconstitute the powder, and add back to the vial of bac water. you now have 20 mls @ 500 ius per ml.

    Has anyone seen any specifics on the desensitization issue, as far as how much over what period of time may cause it? Any clue as to what amounts should be safe to use weekly over say a 10 week cycle?

    yes this would work just fine, your could even do it into 5ml and use a 30 unit slin pin filling to the 25 unit mark and still having 500iu of hcg. U can make it to whatever you want.
