It remains a very important means of testing in endocri ...Read more

Does the human chorionic gonadotropin (hcg) hormone work to lose weight?

Does the human chorionic gonadotropin (hcg) hormone work to lose weight?

Actually, no.: This probably would not work to lose weight. It goes up in the beginning of pregnancy, peaks and falls slightly by term. When it goes up, the mother increases in weight and the baby also grows, so it is unlikely that this would result in or enhance weight loss. As of december 6, 2011, the fda has prohibited the sale of "homeopathic" and otc HCG diet products and declared them illegal. ...Read more

I want to inject myself human chorionic gonadotropin for fertility treatments. Can i?

If prescribed by MD: In women, human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hcg, pregnancy hormone) is used as a 'triggering shot' so that you release eggs or ovulate, with or without drugs like clomid (clomiphene). For in vitro fertilization it can be used to stimulate follicle growth and to 'trigger' egg maturity. Men with low hormone levels (hypogonadism) may take HCG shots to increase sperm production. Ok to self-inject if prescribed for you. ...Read more
