Does H Cg 1234 Work
Back to Health Class: Ovulation does not produce HCG hormone. A fertilized egg that has traveled into the uterus and is implanted on the wall of the uterus and is growing big enough to leak some of this hormone into the mother's blood stream. It is often thought that one should wait two weeks after ovulation for this testing. ...Read more
Absolutely: You must do the diet under supervision of a qualified physician, injectable HCG not drops, and strict adherence to the original 500 calorie diet and not a modified version of it with higher calories. You can lose 1-2 lbs of fat per day. Some physicians call this diet dangerous or won't work, but lack an understanding about the diet and it's proven safety. In use since 1950s. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It's not proven to: What works is reducing caloric intake. Weight loss clinics often tout the weight loss effects of hcg, but what really helps is that they put their clients on a drastically reduced calorie intake. This seems to work great in the short run, but is not sustainable, and all too often the weight comes right back. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Scam: This is a very-low-calorie diet with an expensive placebo. You'll lose weight by restricting calories, and spend money for something that will do you no good. Ask your personal physician whether a crash diet is really right for you. Better, start hanging out with people who are into physical fitness and join in. Unlike a crash diet, this will result in real, sustained good results. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can you have low urine hCG levels (lthan 15 or 25) and still be ovulating and having a normal cycle in frequency. Could low hCG cause heavy and long periods? (not above 25 as neg. Urine pregnant tests)
Not very well.: The weight loss is due to the severe caloric restriction. In men with low testosterone and normal testicles, it may work better because the HCG will increase the testosterone level. In women, HCG may increase progesterone. Higher Progesterone may lead to less anxiety and therefore less eating. Overall, smart eating plus increased activity is a better choice. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Feeling dizzy when working out. Low energy and ambition. Had TSH elevated, fT3/4 normal. Should i start taking l-thyroxine or test for addison's first?
Neither: If your TSH is only borderline elevated (5-10 range) and free T4 is normal you are very unlikely to feel better after starting l-thyroxine as fatigue is due to low free T4. Addison's disease is very rare and in addition to fatigue the symptoms which suggest it are weight loss, abdominal pain, salt craving and darkening of the skin. Your symptoms could be due to lots of non-medical issues. ...Read more
After a early positive pregnancy test with blood work and hCG level of 40, progesterone at 6.5 would you prescribe progesterone to boost the level?
Will me taking the b12&hcg weight loss injection effect my lab work?I go in 3 weeks for blood work.
Yes: If they are checking to see if you are pregnant it might give false positive. It might give you an elevated triglyceride level since the body is using your fat as fuel. Also, your ph may be low since the diet induces ketosis. Best to tell them you are on the diet and it may affect your labs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hope this helps and i think that you should try before giving up and/or going with donor eggs. ...Read more
Can prog. and estro. hormones change a suggestive unviable pregnancy at 5wk6days ultrasound? And why does pregnancy test still show positive?
No genetics do: Unfortunately, genetic incompatibility is the most common reason for miscarriages. There are two types of miscarriages, 1.) An Incomplete Abortion whereby the products of conception are ejected with bleeding immediately. 2.) Missed Abortion where the pregnancy is still present in the uterus, stops growing, the products are not "ejected"and the HCG hormone output stagnates or declines in value. ...Read more
