HCG Pregnyl 5000 is an injectable drug manufactured by Organon İlaçları, Turkey. Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) is a hormone that supports the normal development of an egg in a woman’s ovary, and stimulates the release of the egg during ovulation. It is a very efficient compound to treat infertility in women, and to increase sperm count in men. It is a peptide hormone that has the same action as luteinizing hormone (LH).This compound is used by bodybuilders to improve results during anabolic-androgenic steroid use and in some cases to restore the testes. Pregnyl 5000 HCG comes in 1 ampoule plus solvent (5000 IU).
Pregnyl 5000 IU is used by bodybuilders and athletes to restore the Testosterone levels, counter the testicular atrophy and to burn the fats in the human body. The last should be followed by a strict low calorie diet and is efficient among women as well. Chorionic gonadotropin also eliminates some of the side effects of anabolic steroids, as well as keeps the gained muscle mass. In case of testicular problems HCG works by sending artificial signals to the testes thus preventing their atrophy. It not only helps to maintain testicular size and condition but it will also help in restoring testicles back to their original size.
Pregnyl (HCG) is given as an injection under the skin or into a muscle. An average dose of HCG during a cycle is between 500 IU to 1000 IU and it should be followed every week to every other week. The dosages should be split in order not to provoke an increase in estrogen levels caused by the aromatization and eventually gynecomastia. While used in the post cycle therapy smaller but often dosage should be taken: 250-500 mcg every day for a period of 2 or 3 weeks. The smaller doses are enough to begin the reversal of testicular atrophy and HCG used in combination with Nolvadex or Clomid, will avoid raising the levels of estrogen to high and increasing the risk of gynecomastia. The HCG post cycle should start near the end of anabolic steroid cycle. Anabolic steroid cycles of 12 or more weeks should have HCG as a part of post cycle plan, while cycles of 6-10 weeks may not require HCG, if the testicular atrophy is not a problem.
