What is HCG used for?
HCG is widely known as a weight loss aid that helps people lose 1-2 pounds a week.
For women it is also a known treatment for fertility and ovulation.
For men it helps with the production of testosterone.
Why Do Men Use HCG?
Well, for several reasons. For example when the testicles have not dropped in young boys then HCG can be used to help them naturally drop down to the scrotum.
For men who have been taking testosterone for a long period and experienced testicular shrinkage, HCG will be prescribed and can reverse the effects. This is because the HCG jump-starts the production of testosterone in the testes and so increases the size of the testicles.
HCG has also been used to treat male infertility as it can increase sperm count.
It can also be used by men for weight loss, as described below.
How is HCG Given?
For medical treatment Men have to take HCG by subcutaneous injections. You may be given pre-filled pens or vials. An alternative is to mix the powder with bacteriostatic water and then to fill the syringe and inject.

HCG for Men Who Want to Lose Weight
The HCG Diet is a well known and extremely effective weight loss program. One fact that is not well known is that it is generally more effective for men than women.
Men have been known to lose 1 to 2 pounds a day when using HCG drops.
Compared to the levels of HCG required for other uses, the dosage of HCG for men to use to achieve weight loss is very small. HCG for men is given at very low dosage levels. These low levels ensure the risk of any side effects is very low.
