  Steroid . com - Steroid profile on HCG and other anabolic steroids
HCG, is not an anabolic/an-drogenic steroid but a natural protein hormone which develops in the placenta of a pregnant woman.
Although HCG causes a quick and significant increase of the endogenic plasma- testosterone level, unfortunately it is not a perfect remedy to prevent the loss of strength and mass at the end of a steroid treatment.
HCG package insert states clearly that HCG "has no known effect of fat mobilization, appetite or sense of hunger, or body fat distribution." It further states, "HCG has not been demonstrated to be effective adjunctive therapy in the treatment of obesity, it does not increase fat losses beyond that resulting from caloric restriction.

 HCG
HCG, is not an anabolic/androgenic steroid but a natural protein hormone which develops in the placenta of a pregnant woman.
HCG is manufac-tured from the urine of pregnant women since it is excreted in un-changed form from the blood via the woman's urine, passing through the kidneys.
Most athletes, however, use HCG at the end of a treatment in order to avoid a "crash," that is, to achieve the best possible transition into "natural training." A precondition, however, is that the steroid intake or dosage be reduced slowly and evenly before taking HCG.

 Fertility-Facts.com ~ Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG)
The purpose of hCG is to keep estrogen and progesterone at their appropriate levels until the placenta has developed enough to take over this function.
HCG monitoring is more useful before the fetal heartbeat is seen (before 6-7 weeks after LMP), usually to rule out an ectopic pregnancy or an early miscarriage.
HCG is first found in the blood as early as 7-8 days after ovulation and within the first 2-4 weeks after fertilization, hCG levels usually double every 48-72 hours.

 Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG)
The human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) test is done to measure the amount of the hormone hCG in blood or urine to determine whether a woman is pregnant.
HCG is produced by the placenta during pregnancy.
Therefore, hCG levels are usually tested in a woman who may have cancer of the ovaries or abnormal tissue growing in her uterus (molar pregnancy) instead of a normal fetus.

 HCG
HCG is first detectable in the blood as early as 7-8 days after ovulation,shortly after the blastocyst implants in the endometrium by sensitive HCG assays.
HCG is a glycoprotein having a molecular weight of about 39,000 and has pretty similar molecular structure and function as LH secrted by the pituitary.
Under the influemnce of HCG the corpus luteum grows to about twice the size of its intial size by four weeks after the pregnanacy begins and its continued secretion of estrogen and and progesterone maintains the decidual nature of the endometrium which is necessary for the early development of fetus.

HCG is a glycoprotein composed of an alpha subunit and a beta subunit.
HCG is closely related to two other gonadotropins, luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), as well as thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), all three of which are glycoprotein hormones.

 hCG: The Test
A qualitative urine or blood hCG test is ordered as early as 10 days after a missed menstrual period if a woman wishes to confirm whether or not she is pregnant (some methods can detect hCG even earlier, at one week after conception).

 [No title]
Introduction Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a glycoprotein hormone normally produced by the placenta during pregnancy.
The concentration of hCG in the serum of pregnant women increases to 5-50 mIU/ml one week after implantation and continues increasing exponentially during the first ten weeks, reaching a maximum of 100,000-200,000 mIU/ml at the end of the first trimester.
The minimum detectable concentration of hCG by this assay is estimated to be 2.0 mIU/ml.

HCG is a hormone produced by the human placenta.
Indications for use: hCG is used for two reasons: First, hCG mimics LH, resulting in the release of matured eggs after controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (COH), with FSH or hMG, for example.
Second, after ovulation has occurred, either naturally or in conjunction with IUI, IVF or ART, hCG may be used to support the corpus luteum and to enhance the quality of the uterine lining and the potential for implantation of the embryos.
