    about hcg , all read !


     
    <P class=MsoNormal>Pregnyl freeze dried substance +solvent for intramuscular use .
    <P class=MsoNormal>Characteristic s :
    <P class=MsoNormal>Pharmacodynami c properties : pregnyl contains hcg . hcg is used to achieve adequate levels of lh activity for gonadal steroidogenesis and gamete development , and/or to mimic the mid cycle LH surge which preceeds ovulation .
    <P class=MsoNormal>In the male pregnyl is given to promote the production of testerosterone .
    <P class=MsoNormal>In the female pregnyl is given as a substitute for the endogenoud LH surge to induce the final phase of maturation , leading to ovulation .
    <P class=MsoNormal>Pharmacokineti c properties : maximal hcg plasma levels will be reached approximately 6 hrs after a single injection of hcg . hcg is approximately 80 % metabolized , primarily in the kidneys . following intramuscular injection , the apparent elimination half life of hcg is about 2 days . on basis of the recommended dose regimens and elimination half life cumulation does not occur .
    <P class=MsoNormal>Indications : in the male( I am going to skip the female part ) : hypogonadropic hypogonadism (also cases of idiopathic dysspermiasis have shown a positive response to gonadopropins ) .
    <P class=MsoNormal>Delayed puberty associated with insufficient gonadotropic pituitary function .
    <P class=MsoNormal>Cryptochidism , not due to anatomical obstructions .
    <P class=MsoNormal>Administration : after addition of the solvent to the freeze dried substance , the reconstituted pregnyl solution administered intramuscularly .
    <P class=MsoNormal>Dosage :
    <P class=MsoNormal>In the male :
    <P class=MsoNormal>Hypogonadotrop ic hypogonadism ; 1000-2000iu pregyl , 2-3 times per week . if the main complaint is sterility , the same dosage is given in combination with an hFSH prepration (containing 75 iu FSH ) daily or 2-3 times a week for atleast 3 months . once achievd , the improvement in spermatogenesis<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp; </SPAN>may in some cases be maintained by hcg alone .
    <P class=MsoNormal>Delayed puberty <SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp;</SPAN>: 1500 iu 2-3 times a week for atleast 6 months .
    <P class=MsoNormal>Contraindicati ons: known or suspected androgen dependent tumors , such as prostatic carcinoma or breast carcinoma in the male .
    <P class=MsoNormal>Warnings and precautions : in the male : treatment with hcg leads to increased androgen production , therefore :
    <P class=MsoNormal>Hcg shud be avoided in prepubertal boys to avoid premature epiphyseal closure or precocious sexual development .
    <P class=MsoNormal>Patients with latent or overt cardiac failure , renal dysfunction , hypertension , epilepsy or migraine shud be kept under close medical supervision , since aggravation or recurrence may occassionaly be induced as a result of increased androgen production .
    <P class=MsoNormal>Adverse reactions :allergic reactions have occasionally been reported with use of urinary gonadotropic preprations . these mostly involve local reactions such as pain and rash at the injection site ., and generalized reactions such as rash and fever . water and sodium retention is occasionally seen in males after administration of high dosages ., this is regarded as <SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp;</SPAN>a result of high excessive androgen production . hcg may rarely cause gyno .
    <P class=MsoNormal>Interactions : no interactions of clinical relevance are known .
    <P class=MsoNormal>Effects on ability to drive and use machines : as<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp; </SPAN>far as known this medicine has no influence on alertness and concentration .
    <P class=MsoNormal>Overdosage : the toxicity of urinary gonadotropin preprations has been shown to be very low .<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp; </SPAN>no symptoms of an acute parenteral overdosage known in humans .
    <P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp;<?xml:na mespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>

    how does it stimulate androgen (test) production, isn't hcg growth hormone?

    so since it stimulates LH, would it be more effective than nolvadex for post cycle therapy?

    Actually, if you can afford it, HCG and nolvadex post-cycle would be good.. HCG doesn't block estrogens, as Tamoxifen will.. Clomid wouldn't hurt either..

    i wud say since it doesnt deal with estrogen , use of clomid or tamoxifen is adviced along with hcg .

    tamoxifen and clomiphene both do the same job . although they might work in diff ways . use of tamoxifen or clomid is a matter of personal choice ,. use either one , u will be fine .

    Hey, Ray.. What's your opinion on the effectiveness of tamoxifen citrate&nbsp;(Nolvadex), compared to clomiphene citrate (Clomid) ? I heard that nolva is a better anti-e, yet clomid is just as strong as far as LH/FSH recuperation...

    i prefer clomid over nolva , actually 100 mg clomid is like 20 mg nolva though . i use clomid cos it doesnt give me acne and helps me blow bigger loads . but for some , they get bad acne problems . so see how it goes and decide i'd say .
