• HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) used in younger men whose testosterone levels are in the middle to low range and who desire to remain fertile or are actively trying to have children.  HCG is a naturally occurring hormone in women that is produced during pregnancy that protects against muscle loss.  This enables women to not lose muscle tissue during pregnancy as the fetus is living off the mother’s body.  In men, HCG activates testicular activity creating a greater production of testosterone. The response to HCG varies in men depending on their metabolic function. HCG is also used in conjunction with Testosterone injection treatment to activate and maintain testicular activity.  This activation helps the male body produce as much natural testosterone as possible while maintaining testicular volume (size of the testis).
    • Clomid Citrate is functions similarly to HCG in that it activates testicular function in younger men whose testosterone levels are in the middle to low ranges. Clomid Citrate also may be used if a man is actively trying to have children or desires to remain fertile. The primary benefit of Clomid Citrate as an alternative is that Clomid does not interfere with the body’s natural production of testosterone and is administered via a tablet. Clomid used in conjunction with an estrogen blocker is highly effective for younger men desiring to raise testosterone levels and control estrogen conversion. The response to Clomid Citrate varies in men based on their metabolic function.
