HCG – Pregnyl

HCG is a powerful naturally occurring hormone that is valued by steroid users for the ability it must help increase, maintain or restore normal testosterone production.

HCG is effective when used with other compounds rather than it being used alone and while it has seen some mainstream promotion as a failed (and illegal) weight loss ingredient, HCG’s real power lies in its ability to help steroid users achieve a major goal after a steroid cycle: to get natural testosterone back on track again.

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is a hormone naturally found in women and has an important role to play in pregnancy; in fact, the hormone is only formed once a woman is pregnant as it is produced after implantation by the placenta and once HCG levels rise enough it is enough to confirm if a woman is pregnant.

If you’re a male steroid user, you might then wonder how or why such a hormone could possibly be of use to you. Human Chorionic Gonadotropin does have a medical role for men: to treat low testosterone or hypogonadism.

Steroid users find HCG useful because it functions almost exactly like luteinizing hormone (LH). LH can be described as a pituitary analogy to HCG because they are hormones produced in different parts of the body (luteinizing hormone forms in the pituitary gland) but have a similar function.

This is where HCG becomes very relevant to men: LH is vital for stimulating natural testosterone production. This is what makes HCG a popular option for PCT usage, where the recovery of normal testosterone function following anabolic steroid suppression is required.

While SERMs and aromatase inhibitors are generally widely accepted as a necessary addition for any steroid user, HCG comes under much more debate with some anabolic steroid users swearing by its use, and others finding that it is not necessary or useful or comes with a greater risk than the other drugs. In any case, when HCG is used it is rarely used alone but in conjunction with SERMs in post cycle therapy and only at low doses for short periods of time if used during a steroid cycle.

Although considered a side effect friendly hormone for most people, HCG comes with one particular risk factor that we need to be concerned about, and this revolves around dependence. Thankfully this can be well controlled through sensible dosing and is a critical reason why HCG shouldn’t be taken until you’ve done adequate research into just how much you should be taking so you don’t put yourself at risk of dependence.

Chemical Composition

HCG 5000 Chorionic Gonadotropin


5 000 iu

Pack Size

1 Vial


Genitec Pharma

Dosage Instructions

2500iu -7500iu’s per week via subcutaneous abdominal injection with a typical cycle length of 4-6 Weeks.

Whichever purpose you are using HCG for – on cycle or for PCT – the dosage and administration of this hormone is very sparse and controlled and unlike that of any other compound you will be using whether that be steroids themselves or drugs like SERMs and AIs.

When buying HCG from your chosen source you will normally receive a small packet of powder containing the active ingredients and another with sterile water in it. These two items are to be mixed to form your injectable ingredient. Any leftover must be refrigerated for later use – do not store the solution at room temperature.

HCG Dosage During Anabolic Steroid Use
When using HCG during your steroid cycle you will want to take it no more than once every 3 to 5 days at a maximum. This will come as some relief since HCG is an injection, so you won’t have to be adding an extra injection to your steroid program too often.

A very low dose of HCG during this time is considered sufficient and this is usually in the realm of 250iu. There is no benefit to increasing the dose beyond this level, nor the frequency of administration.

This modest dosage is enough to give you all the benefits you want from HCG without putting your future testosterone restoration at risk by having the body become dependent on HCG which is an increased risk when you increase the dose – therefore, 250iu once every 5 days is suitable for most male steroid users while on cycle.

HCG Dosage for Increased Endogenous Testosterone Secretion and PCT
HCG is most used as a kick start to your PCT cycle in preparation for the use of SERMs afterwards. The length and dose of HCG during this time should be determined on how powerful your steroid cycle was and the level of testosterone suppression it is likely to have caused.
This can be difficult for new steroid users to gauge initially so a lower HCG dose is advised in those circumstances.

Many users will take HCG for a period of two to three weeks with doses every 3 or 4 days starting at 1000iu at the low end right up to 4000iu. This higher dosage is advised only for advanced users who have used HCG previously and understand its effects. Following this short HCG cycle, SERM administration can begin to carry through the rest of your PCT phase
