Participants either received two implant pellets each containing 135mg of MENT acetate calculated to release 400mcg daily, or three 600mg testosterone pellets, with one given every 12 weeks. Both groups received 68mg of etonogestrel. Both groups experienced significant reduction in sperm production, with 80% of both groups going from an average of 55 x 106 mL to just 1 x 106 mL after 12 weeks of supplementation.8

Recovery from MENT was much more rapid than from testosterone. The recovery period was 16 weeks for the MENT group, in which semen concentration increased to over 20 x 106 mL—whereas the testosterone group still had azoospermia until after 28 weeks.8

Ment was originally developed as a male contraceptive if memory serves me correctly.....

on the original article the hcg dose at 500iu eod to maintain fertility was interesting - that’s higher than we typically use to keep the boy in the barracks but my assumption was always that was a fertility basis as well.....

Yeah, 250 to 500 yields very similar results. They referenced the same study that we usually do however.

What's more interesting is the slow but steady rise to the market of enclomiphene.
