Gonadotropin chorionic is a hormone produced during pregnancy by the placenta. Use in bodybuilding leads to increased secretion of testosterone and prevents testicular atrophy. In addition, gonadotropin stimulates spermatogenesis and accelerates the development of genital organs.
The drug is taken to prevent testicular atrophy during taking a course of steroids. At the same time, the collected muscle mass is preserved, and the function of the testicles remains normal. Moreover, taking the drug can avoid a number of side effects that occur during the taking of steroids.
It is especially important to take gonadotropin after a course of steroids taken in high doses, or a course lasting more than 6 weeks. From the second week it is necessary to do two injections per week for 250-500 ml.
Gonadotropin chorionic is an injectable intramuscular preparation, which is characterized by rapid absorption. The effect of the injection lasts 5-6 days. With courses lasting about a year, you should always take it, making a weekly break every month.
In the post cycle therapy, gonadotropin is included less frequently.
The use of the drug as an anabolic is not advisable, since to obtain the effect, it is necessary to take at least 4000 ml of the drug per week, which can lead to irreversible changes in the body.
Excess dosage can lead to the same side effects as when taking testosterone. The main one is a violation of the basic function of the hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular axis.
