  1. HI guys, I have been receiving TRT through a private medical clinic but unfortunately, owing primarily to finances, I am no longer able to continue accessing treatment from them. I was on Testosterone Enanthate and HCG. My GP has now put me on Nebido and has said she is willing to work with me to fine tune the injection frequency, so rather than following the retarded manufacturing guidelines of one injection every three months, she is open to adjusting my injection frequency to as little as six weeks should bloods and symptoms indicate this is what I need. Fortunate to have an NHS GP as patient-centred and open-minded about TRT! Unfortunately however she is UNABLE she claims to prescribe me HCG? I explained that HCG is ESSENTIAL for hormonal balance and she acknolwdlrged this was so, but it would seem her hands are metaphorically tied. I may therefore have to obtain HCG from another source. I was wondering if any guys on here might have had similar experiences, having to go from care in the private sector back to the NHS, and if they did how they managed to get their HCG and where from and at what cost? I am reluctant to have to use UG sources for the HCG, but given the benefits it brought to my mood, my libido and my testicle size and function, I do think it important to continue on it if at all possible. Any credible suggestions would be much appreciated!
  2. Hi, I'm looking for input and advice on the following. Thanks in advance. I've done a few cycles of 500mg Test-E a week on and off for the last few years. I came off cycle and started a baby making protocol (see below) end of June as my partner and I are looking to have a baby. Got bloods done 7th Sept (see results attached). Recently had a semen analysis (results also attached). My source is fairly trustworthy but semen analysis results show low count and motility. I'm on several different prescribed medications, namely: 600mg Pregablin a day, 8mg Candasartan a day, 10mg Amlodopine a day, 20mg Riveroxaban a day, 25mcg T3 a day, 15mg Zopiclones a night, Blue and brown asthma inhaler. I also take 300mg caffeine 6 days a week pre-workout. I'm not sure whether my prescribed medication is interacting with the baby making protocol or whether the drugs are fake. BABY MAKING PROTOCOL FOR MEN (To Increase Fertility in Men) 75 IU HMG (Human Menopausal Gonadotropin) every other day until pregnancy occurs. 2000 IU Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) every other day until pregnancy occurs. 50mg Clomid (clomiphene citrate) 2x a day until pregnancy occurs. DO NOT TAKE ANY ANABOLIC STEROIDS or Hormone Replacement (HRT)
  3. Hi all, I'm currently reviewing my options to beginning treatment for secondary hypogonadism privately in the UK, near London. My two front-runners are well known clinic Balance My Hormones, and the less prevalent Nebula Health. Some background on me: early 20's and classic symptoms of hypogonadism. My lifestyle is entirely conducive to a healthily functioning endocrine system (other than a stimulant medication used for ADHD since adolescence). I had a bout of mumps around 13 months ago. I want to avoid Testosterone Replacement as much as I can and focus on a therapy combining hCG and Clomid use to increase T and maintain/increase fertility. I am reassured by Balance My Hormones' testimonials and their large presence. However, I have been absolutely blown away by the service and expertise I've experienced with Nebula Health. I'm convinced these guys are on the cutting edge of these treatments and know an incredible amount, more than any youtube or internet guru I've come across in the last few years of passive research and the last two months of active research. I'm really interested in your guys' experience and recommendations and am happy to answer any questions you might have about my situation. Thanks in advance

  5. Hi chaps, Seems that a lot of sources only have stock of Magnus HCG nowadays, any views on this? Can't seem to source the Ovidac stuff from anywhere.. Any experience welcome.. Cheers

  7. High prolactin after PCT, please HELP!

    Hi everybody, I stopped using steroids in July, then did a full blown PCT to recover from it. I did a regulation PCT and used all the necessary drugs like HCG, exemestane, Tamoxifen and Clomid. My PCT was 6 weeks in total and I easily recovered from with no problems whatsoever. I stopped injecting testosterone in mid July and all of it is out of my system, I did bloods before PCT and after PCT. In both tests, my prolactin was high. In the previous test my prolactin was 584 mU/L and now it has decreased to 532 mU/L which is still bad. I don't know what prolactin does in men and according to the internet high prolactin levels in men is often caused by a brain tumour. What should I do now?
  8. Hello everyone. So I am basically on Test E long term. But I haven't used any HCG. Currently I am on Test E 500 mg a week and Var 50 mg that I take only pre workout. It is quite a mild cycle as I am trying to lose body fat. Could I possibly add some Hcg to correct the hypogonadism ? Would that affect my goals in terms of fat loss? if so, what protocol would you use? This is the first time I have gone for quite sometime without hcg. Thanks a lot
  9. Planing to run HCG on my Testosterone Enanthate only cycle and would like to hear from you dear experienced lifters your experiences with it. I have read info First Steroid Cycle on this forum where it is stated that HCG needs to be run on cycle in doses at 1000iu per week. However, I tend to get sides from medication and would love if possible steer clear from any stuff other than Test while doing my first ever cycle. So the advantages of HCG as far as I'm aware are mainly faster recovery after a cycle and less ball shrinkage. Main question: Did anybody have any side effects with HCG? If they occur would it be okay to stop using it or just reduce the dosage? Has anyone tried lower dosage than suggested on the forum, for example as little as 250 iu twice a week (500 iu per week)? If yes did it work for you? Also did you inject under skin or intramuscular? Any pros and cons about using it from day one of your cycle and not after the cycle leading into PCT like some people do? Did your butts not hurt from so many injections? (that would be 4 injections for me weekly 2 x Test Enanthate 250 mg. 2 x HCG) About me: I'm 30 y. o. 185cm, W 80kg bodyfat no more than 15%. Not on anything rn. Bloods are currently perfect with normal Testosterone, Cholesterol and RBC levels.
  10. HMG while on cycle for better recovery

    Can using hmg+hcg while on cycle promote to a better recovery of the natural testosterone?
  11. Hi there, I have been on TRT for the last 9 months or so. I am a 27 year old with secondary hypogonadism . I am not a science guy and do what the doc tends to tell me. I started out taking Testosterone Cyp, injecting 0.5 ml once a week from a 200gm/ml vile....not even sure what the dose is! I combined it with HCG 2,500ui twice a week (if that sounds right.) Switched doctors, moved to the UK; everything is different here. The doc took me off the Test. as my RBC has tended to fluctuate; the Heamoglobin 174/176 g/L. They switched me to Androgels for a month...totally ineffectual for me and my Test levels went from 31 on injections to 10 (prior treatment i was 1.2-2). How high are these bloods? Are they likely to be a worry if i stay on T? If I did stay on Test. would switching to a different ester impact the RBC? The doctor wants me to be on HCG mono-therapy. I am open to the idea. I am however, curious as to why some doctors totally reject the idea of HCG mono-therapy and favor it only when combined with Test. when fertility is a concern. For me, fertility is not an issue. I just want to feel well, and after 4 weeks of renewed low T symptoms that were only getting worse, I dont really want to play the game of waiting another month here and there. Thanks!
  12. I read so many articles on the internet and I still didn't find my answer. What will happen for a healthy young man who has never taken any steroids if he just took HCG!! Will his testicles increase in size and produce more sex hormones for his entire life!! it sounds like fiction!! or it just works with impaired testicles to a very limited level?!
  13. Hi chaps, Been on TRT for approx 4 years which has been fantastic in every way. Currently on 96.25mg TestC p/w and 700iu HCG p/w. Finally been able to book a holiday (in 7 weeks) and am now ready to do a cut. Ideally want to keep as much of my hard earned gains over the last 6 months as I can (lucky enough to have a decent home gym) so was looking at getting a little help with Anavar. I did a holiday cut last year with Ostarine which was pretty good although I'm carrying quite a bit more muscle this year. Am currently at 198lbs, 17.5% BF and my target is 14%. I was planning to take 20-30mg Pharmacom Anavar ED (ordered direct - I think I can say that as its the lab?) for 6 weeks, keep the same TestC protocol and increase my HCG to just over 1000iu. I also have pharma Anastrozole which I was planning to run alongside the cycle, perhaps 0.5mg EOD or ETD to keep E2 in check. I'm healthy, clean-diet, non-smoker and teetotal (boring sod) and my bloodwork always comes back clean ( baseline T approx 33-35, Free T 0.7-1, Prolactin and Oestradiol upper normal) and I'm 48.. I've done my research (all praise to SwoleTroll and you other fine experts) and I'm planning to do a T cycle in the near future, but don't want to waste my first proper cycle on a cut and I also know there are more effective orals for cutting; such as Clen but the sides are off-putting, and I think Anavar + low Test could be a good first mini cycle for me to break my cherry :-) Does the above sound sensible or am I a boring moron?
  14. Did anybody compared his sexual lebido and erection, the free testosterone levels, ejaculation time and all the sexual functions before starting any cycle and after running a cycle??!! Because I feel it doesn’t really make sense to me to say you will have a full recovery from abusing steroids I feel it is like hearimg someone says you will have a full recovery after an injury after receiving some health care!! There will be absolutely some scars left on your skin. So the quastion in simple words: What is the ratio of your genitals functions after running the pct to how they were before abusing anything. 1:1exactly the same 0:1 lost your genitals completely
  15. Right. Get this... I’m being employed by an affluent couple to make a baby with her. The money is big. They aren’t into the clinics. They hit me up and I’m looking to travel to them once a month for a few days (while she’s in peek ovulation) until the job is done. So.... I’ve been on self administered TRT for the past 4 years. 200mg. Test Cyp. A bit of Arimidex to keep E2 in place. “TRT” has been very good for me but I’m concerned that this could make me much less fertile than I would ideally. Otherwise, I’m a pretty healthy 34yo, drink lots of water, eat well, sleep well. Hang between about 10-12% body fat year-round. Also worth mentioning I’m currently on a blast of 500mg test and 270mg nandrolone, which I’ve been running for about 2 months - a bit of caber to mitigate any weird prolactin issues. All good. I’ve got about a month of prep time before the first trip out there. My questions are: What sort of protocols can I look at to optimise my chances of getting the job done? Drop back to 200mg test? Cycle HCG? What sort of protocol? What have you guys done to father kids who have been on the hormones? Any tips or tricks? Thanks in advance!!! Rich

  17. Pregyl HCG 5000iu

    Hey guys just picked up this Pregyl HCG 5000iu it’s from a top trusted source but searching around I’m not sure it’s legit. And yes I will get a preg test as well to check for sure when I’m ready to open it and update then. Cheers
  18. Hi, On Test E 100 mg every five days - what is an appropriate dosing schedule for HCG please?
  19. Coming off - permanently - after 4 years BnC. Currently following the Power pct protocol, gonna extend it a bit. Have 50.000iu, so i'm taking 2000iu EOD for approx. 8 weeks. Question: how to control estrogen on such high amounts of HCG? I'm not particularly sensitive to estrogen, just average sensitivity. What dose of arimidex are we talking? For reference: on 200mg test I don't take any AI. On 500mg test I take 0,5mg twice or thrice a week. Currently just started second week of protocol
  20. Hi all, I have just started a cycle of sustanon 250 at 500mg a week. Had my first shot and everything went well, but I also have some HCG I plan on running at 250iu eod. I have never used it before and assumed it would be easier to use than its turning out. The HCG I have is Pregnyl 5000, so it should last me roughly 5 weeks, my problem with it being the kit has 2 ampoules, one containing 1ml of water, the other ampoule with the dry HCG powder at the bottom. 1ml of water to mix 5000ius worth of HCG seems strange, and once it is mixed there is no where to store it as its the small glass amps that you break the top off. Can anyone please give me some advice on if I need more water and how to mix it and what container to store it in, I know it needs to be refrigerated but confused on what to store it in. Any advice is much appreciated! Cheers
  21. Hello everyone, i’m looking for some advice on my first cycle... I intended to take 500mg of test E or C per week for 10 weeks but have only been able to get hold of Testobolin 400. Its made by BM pharmaceuticals and I’m fairly confident its good quality. It contains 60mg/ml of propionate, 70mg/ml of phenylpropionate, 120mg/ml of isocaproate, 150mg/ml of decanoate. Obviously it isn’t ideal as I wanted to just run plain test, but as its all I’ve been able to get i’m still strongly considering it. My question is- would a 1ml shot once a week be ok with regards to the half lives of the 4 different esters? I’m also still undecided whether to run hcg during the cycle and nolva for pct, or just the nolva after and leave out the hcg. Any advice/opinions appreciated. Thanks
  22. HCG

    Works drug test , will hcg show up , am sure this has been asked b4 an the answer will most likely be NO but don't hurt to ask again
  23. HELP LOW TEST AT 18

    Hello , First of all I know I’m stupid and don’t need to be told. I’m 18 and have been of all steroids for about 8months and didn’t have a great pct. I’m still heavily suffering from low test as in I have extremely low libido and generally just feel s**t and tired most of the time! I plucked up the courage to go to the gp and he sent me for blood tests which came back at 7.2 nmol/d with normal being 7-31 nmol/d so he sent me for another a month later which came back a little higher at 13.4 nmol/d but I’m prettt sure the increase was just because I had blood drawn earlier in the morning and levels are higher in the morning. The doctot has just told me to take vitamin d and just said see how you get on which is annoying as I feel like absolute s**t and not even interested in girls anymore! So I was wondering would a cycle of hcg and Clomid help me get my test levels back to normal? P.s I don’t want to go back on any artificial test. Please help thanks
  24. Has anyone had very vivid lengthy erotic dreams after injecting HCG an hour or so before bed??? Not sure if it was just a coincidence or what. I have just started PCT and doing 2 weeks more of HCG but never done it before bed. I am using HCG every 3 days 500 ui. And this dreaming has happened both times before bed.
