Title: Injecting HCG Daily Restored My Erections
Post by: JustAskin on March 13, 2015, 06:12:40 pm
I have been on TRT for 3 years, and in that time I have hit the sweet spot (erections like in mid twenties) less than a dozen times.
Even when labs show I am where I should be.
I was reading on Dr. Crisler's  site, there he had some people try small daily HCG shots instead of E3D. (and some 2x daily)

His reasoning in it more mimics what you body would normally produce daily, and stop the swings.

I thought what the hell, I have tried everything else.
 
 After 10 days of doing small everyday dosing.  I now wake with erections every morning and have vivid sex dreams like in my 20's,  and my testes have increased in size significantly.
 Don't know if it will help anyone else or even me long term, but so far so good, though you do have to inject daily.

I will be making this change.  I have also read that daily HCG doses can have this effect.  I tried for a few days then stopped because I didnt notice much.  What dose do you inject each day?  I am guessing SUBQ?

Interesting.

Are you only on HCG, or also testosterone replacement?

What is your daily dosage?

I was thinking about going 125IU ED subQ.  Id be curious to hear the OPs protocol as well.

Wow good news man congrats. Dr. Krisler mentioned hcg shots to me as well but then decided on clomid.  I didn't Start taking it yet. Do you think hcg would be better than clomid?

Good Day, my friends:

Well, I can say the same thing, BUT, the hCG injections I take are in concert with SottoPelle
HRT pellets, and a weekly small dose of Letrozole.

Almost three years ago, my Endo and I hit my sweet spot. And, my lover has told me (not for
my ego, mind you) that she is sure my testes have regained significant volume, and the penile
shaft has mildly increased in length and girth. I think it might be due to seriously increased
blood flow and volume. But, she is very happy, and gives me serious ego-boo. The psychological
lift alone is priceless.

The nuts and bolts of the story:

1. SottoPelle every six months, and multiple blood tests before and after insert;

2. Letrozole .25 mg once a week;

3. hCG injections Monday through Friday at 300 IU sub-q in tummy.

4. and lastly, serious vitamin supplementation of all the critical-to-erection vitamins I need.

My current Endo is also enthusiastic about hCG supplementation for her male HRT patients. She
can Rx a script, I get the lyophilized hCG and BW, I get syringes at Wal_Greens, and all is well in My World.

As Mr. PeakT has stated, it's a big balancing act, and HRT/Aromatase Inhibitor/hCG balance the
feed-back loop in our body that has somehow gone seriously off-kilter...

I cannot speak to the use of Clomid, check PeakT's site for any thoughts. But I gotta completely
support hCG. It has worked miracles with me, and I have an awesome sex-life now. I  think I'm
happier now than my late 30's. JMHO...

Y'All take care !! Do something FUN this weekend !!

Luvin' it down hee-ahh in Flah-ridder !! Cheers !! Sam

What dose of clomid? For me I am on hCG Mono but I think clomid was actually better up to a point and I am trying to investigate this.

Do you have "adrenal fatigue" issues?

He wants me on 12.5 mg daily.  I'm starting next week and am super excited.   I don't know if I specifically have adrenal issues but I do have low dhea. What do u mean it was good for you up to a point?

Hey bro great news on the testicle increase I'm looking for that too as mine have shrunk as well. Did you always have small testicles? Also since being on the hcg are your loads bigger when you ejaculate?  Also was your sexual desire weak before hcg? How did it help?

I've read 100iu daily but I'm very interested in this and willing to change from 250iu EOD

Well I was on 50 mg 3x/week and I felt like I was getting better and felt really good in the 3rd week. Then in the 4th week all the side effects kicked in and I started experiencing horrid anxiety/depression, had to lower the dose and it got better but I still experienced mood swings. It was a high dose I took though and you are on a lower dose so it could work for you. I'm looking into getting back onto a SERM possibly nut low dose.

Vinnay and Euphorix:  Let us know how this works...
Title: Re: Injecting HCG Daily Restored My Erections

This is my regiment:
Testosterone Cypionate:  30mg.  E3D
HCG  350iu per week divided into daily doses.   (previously I injected E3D the day before T.)
AI = None with this regiment.  ( I do take a Calcium-D-Glucarate 500mg. daily to help clean any excess estrogen)

Testes have increase in size by about 50%, and again last night woke with erection, even with a bad sinus infection.

I also believe what Dr. Shippen said about HCG, don't go to high or you will overdrive the testes and defeat the purpose. He believes anything over 500-700 is to much, I tried higher doses under his supervision and when I got over 500 my T. levels fell.

Loads are bigger.

When I first saw Shippen he put me on Clomid to test for secondary or primary. And I could have stayed on it but I have a side affect of eye blurriness.

P.S. It took 10-14 days to start seeing a difference, again if on Testosterone Cypionate do go crazy on HCG.

I tried to modify the above post, to include my #'s
Testosterone = 924   (when I went on daily HCG I had to cut back on Testosterone Cypionate because my T increased)
E2 =24
SHGB =27

One other thing my wife noticed, is I now seep precum during foreplay. I have not done that in many, many years.

Hi Mr. DK,
Well, I've always been told by my lovers that my testes are of a good size, and the loads were good and healthy (gotta be careful,
can't be too colorful here)!! My lover has told me that she is very sure the testes are bigger over the last two years, and my loads
 have been better. (hey,! I'm coming up on 63 ! ) I have really recovered a lot of function in 4 years.

i can't separate the hCG effects, as they are tied into the trifecta of pellets/hCG/letrozole. Everything started going downhill about
2003, sexual desire was shot.

Fast forward to 2010, I started HRT and support meds. Now, 4 1/2 years later, everything works fine, desire and functionality are
 off-the-charts. I am sure the 300 IU sub-q Mon-Fri has done the best on my testes. About last Summer, I started leaking
pre-cum at foreplay, very much to our surprise !!

Morning erections are solid and reliable. this morning without a levitra, we discovered I was hard and ready, we made slow easy love,
and fell asleep afterwards. I surprise us sometimes ! ! Life is getting Sweeter and Sweeter ! !

so, hCG is wonderful, HRT is wonderful, diet, vitamins, exercise are wonderful. A sincerely caring and loving Lover is a must! She has been
my best help in recovery.

Just MHO....a balanced approach is needed, not just one drug. And, work with your doctor.

Y'All take care, be safe out there! DO something FUN this weekend.

I'm going to try 100iu daily the next 5 days and see if any thing obvious occurs.

Most changes take a minimum of 2 weeks to start showing and 6-8 to level out.  Be very watchful of your E2 especially if your are on Testosterone also. Any gains can be nullified with rising E2.

Your serum blood levels will stabilize at the 2 week mark, so at least go 14 days.

I think it's day 13 and nothing to be said good or bad, libido is still blah, I mean I feel nothing, other than sticking myself every single day, I don't see that lasting for me personally.

I keep getting better, my testes are the size of when in my 30's, Still erections every morning, easier stimulated, larger loads.
But I only do 1/2 the dose you are doing. It is possible you are overdriving.
Get labs to see where you are.  I get lab every time I make changes after 3-4 weeks.

Great news.  I'll probably bug you again in a few weeks and make sure there is no honeymoon period...

I'm going to give it another 6 days and make a decision then, that should give me ~21 days I think.
