HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) Q & A

What is hCG?

hCG is short for human chorionic gonadotropin, and it’s a naturally occurring hormone found in both men and women that helps with sexual development. Injections of hCG are used in men’s health to help with low testosterone. Because hCG’s primary function is helping to develop your sexual function, when injected, it tells your testes to begin creating testosterone again.

hCG injections differ from testosterone replacement therapy because hCG stimulates your system into going back into the production of testosterone for itself. Testosterone replacement therapy adds additional testosterone into your system immediately and does not promote your own production of the hormone.

Who is a candidate for hCG injections?

If you are approaching or have eclipsed 40, it’s likely your testosterone production has tapered off. If your testosterone dips too low, this can produce the following quality of life issues:

  • Weak erections
  • Low libido
  • Insomnia
  • Grumpiness
  • Depression
  • Loss of strength
  • Loss of endurance
  • Body fat increase
  • Muscle loss

But low T can affect men of any age. hCG has been used to help younger men with infertility issues and men with chronic weight problems.

If you suffer from any combination of these symptoms, it’s a good idea to have your testosterone levels tested at Reno Men’s Health so you can correct the issue as soon as possible.

What are the benefits of hCG injections?

hCG coaxes your system to scale up production on testosterone to get you back on track. These injections do a great job of limiting or eliminating the symptoms of low T, but many men and their physicians have found additional benefits to taking hCG supplements, including:

  • Higher sperm counts
  • The addition of lean muscle mass
  • Fat loss
  • Improved cognition
  • Penile growth, in some men

The procedure to receive hCG is minimally invasive, nothing more than a shot, and the entire appointment usually only takes about half an hour.

Dr. Hahn of Reno Men’s Health is the only men’s health physician in Reno who offers blood work as part of his free consultation. So if you think you may be suffering from low T, call or book your appointment online.
