I am in a similar position as you, though younger 22, but I would be careful about HCG as there are studies that proved and found Prions in HCG, which came from urine.
"We tested raw urine and 100-fold concentrated and dialyzed urine and assessed the sensitivity of the bioassay along with the effect of concentration and dialysis on prion infectivity. Intracerebral inoculation of transgenic mice with urine from 3 sCJDMM1 patients failed to demonstrate prion disease transmission, indicating that prion infectivity in urine from sCJDMM1 patients is either not present or is <0.38 infectious units/mL."
Do you have any studies that prove that hCG is infectious?
There's always rhCG as an alternative.
yeah this one, quite shocking :
what is rHCG, is it also gained from urine of people?
That study does not show that urine derived hcg is infectious, it just shows that prion proteins may be present. Still a little disconcerting though. You would think that hcg has been used for long enough for there to be some epidemiological evidence indicating an actual risk of infection.
the researchers of the study concluded however that this fact is so significant that the "The risks of urine-derived fertility products could now outweigh their benefits" !,that should mean something - and that " intramuscular injection is a relatively efficient route of transmission of human prion disease"
and as every urine donor is NOT checked thoroughly for prion diseases there is definitly a small percentage of people that will get infected with prions,especially if it is used for years, decades...
also, just because there arent any studies that made a connection between prion disease and HCG it doesnt mean that HCG could not have been the cause-its all a matter of time, there are so many things happening in our bodies that will still be discovered -doesnt mean they re not happening.
And most prion disease really fuck someone up big time so definilty worth it to look into this more.
