Does hCG with Testosterone improve the effects of TRT? In this video I take a look at this question from 4 perspectives: preventing testicular atrophy, maintaining fertility, sexual effects, and general wellbeing. I also cover the side effects. Overall there is very little long-term data on continuous hCG use along with TRT, but there is some data and some anecdotal evidence. It’s certainly something to consider with your doctor before starting TRT, but so are the side effects as well as the difficulties involved with maintaining this regimen. hCG can be hard to get, expensive, and after it is reconstituted requires refrigeration. This video should help you decide whether it could make sense for you.

I do NOT in any way support the use of any performance enhancing drugs – PEDs, anabolic steroid or other medicine for muscle building or body transformation. The “off-label” use of PEDs, as such agents is considered illicit and may lead to adverse health outcomes. Please consult an expert health professional regarding any medical agent and do NOT use any medicine without the explicit advice and supervision of an appropriate medical expert.
