Are you receiving TRT in conjunction with hCG therapy? Here’s why our Doctors consider hCG as a compliment to TRT.
Exogenous (outside the body from an external source ) testosterone suppresses the body’s natural testosterone production. While test levels inside the bloodstream are normal because you are administering TRT, the levels inside the testes are low because they are being suppressed by the exogenous source. Over time this will cause little to no organic testosterone production, testicular atrophy, and a very low sperm count.
Receiving hCG concurrently with your TRT treatment can combat this suppression, keeping natural testosterone production at an acceptable level as well as other functions such as sperm production. hCG works in a manner similar to Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) and Luteinizing Hormone (LH) by creating a feedback loop between the pituitary gland and the testes stimulating testosterone production, sperm production, and testicular regeneration and growth.
To summary, hCG in men acts like luteinizing hormone (LH). LH stimulates Leydig cells in the testicles, which results in the production of testosterone. As hCG stimulates the testicles to produce testosterone and sperm, the testicles maintain their natural size over time.
