Hgh While Pregnant
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
I tested pos for pregnancy a week ago & now is negative. Nurse at clinic said may be due to somethin im eatin/drinkin. My med is high in HGH is that y?
I'm 34yr male. In june I will use scitropin a 4-8wks. If my wife falls pregnant while im using HGH will that have any side effect on d baby or my wife?
If your injecting HGH while injecting the depro provera (medroxyprogesterone) birth control can you get pregnant?
Apples/oranges: One has nothing to do with the other. I assume you're not mixing them. It's unusual for a 19 year old to be on hgh. Taking it as an adult without actual gh deficiency can cause significant morbidity including, deformed bones, diabetes, increases risk for cancer, heart probs, etc. It makes things grow so if you don't need it, it isn't wise to stimulate growth in other cells. ...Read more
I am 40 and 5 weeks pregnant, can I take a natural supplement, either a natural HGH or a natural progesterone to help in early pregnancy?
No HGH: You should not take natural supplements during pregnancy without review by your Obstetrician. I am unaware of any need for HGH during pregnancy. Natural progesterone may be prescribed by your doctor if you have low progesterone levels from a defective corpus luteum called a luteal phase defect. Please talk to your provider before you take any natural supplements. Don't experiment with your baby. ...Read more
Not for adults: If you are thinking of GH for yourself, don't bother. Except for rare adults with pituitary problems it is of no benefit - effects on muscle strength are small to nil. That said, all GH products have the same potency so no one is "better" than another ...Read more
Unknown: There have been several studies on using growth hormone in non deficient patients (those with severe cachexia, malnutrition, ICU setting, aids wasting), and there was no real bad side effect. The hormone may alter glucose metabolism, but there are mixed results about diabetes development in patients. But, why take more than you need. You won't grow taller once your growth plates are closed. ...Read more
Unknown: The internet is a fabulous source of misinformation and shoddy products. Supplements are unregulated to begin with and on line it is truly 'let the buyer beware". If HGH supplies the outcome you desire, you need a reliable source and there is no way to prove that with internet products. So be cautious since you cannot personally analyze the supplements you are purchasing. ...Read more
Maybe: A thorough evaluation by a pediatric endocrinologist can help you understand the use and misuse of HGH. If your daughter does not make enough or her body is not responding to what she makes, it may be helpful. If she has normal HGH production and is just short genetically, supplemental hormone will not make her taller. ...Read more
If you are in USA: If you are an adult in the usa, the first thing you need to know is that unless you have adult growth hormone deficiency it is illegal for you to use hgh, even from a real doctor. Hgh is the only drug in this country that is illegal to use off label. It is not under control of the dea, but under the control of the fda. Having said that, it is very helpful when used under the right conditions. ...Read more
Deficiency??: If you take hgh and you don't meet the fda criteria for needing it you run the risk of significant morbidity: raised intracranial pressure, high blood sugar, joint/muscle pain, cardiovascular problems, deformities of bones, and increased long term risk for cancer because of abnormally high growth factors circulating in your body. It would be unwise to take it for doping purposes. ...Read more
For proven growth hormone deficiency injections are the usual therapy.
It is not clear if the supplement in health food stores that is oral will help one grow taller.
I recommend a chinese medicine consult/ evaluation as they have amazing herbs for your specific constitution that may help you. ...Read more
I never did or would: This med is easier to get now after they figured how to make it. Which leads to a potential for abuse. Even lab made med will run you 15k/yr in cost and may never be covered by insurers. Pediatric endocrinologists are trained to identify those cases where use is warranted. If so it might get covered. ...Read more
Not good: For we do not know the long term effects. ...Read more
