It's all over the map on here - everything from 500 IU 3X/week to 1500 IU 3X/week.
I have to say one thing. Based on your earlier reaction, it would seem prudent to slowly ramp up. You did tell your doc about that initial experience right.
And please let us know how the HCG goes. You'll be about our fourth guy and it's had mixed results so far.
Also, I've heard the Crisler comment. He's been around the block, so it would also seem prudent to listen in your case, since I'm sure you have an aversion to straight HRT...
