What is CHROTROPIN
Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone that supports the normal development of an egg in a woman's ovary, and stimulates the release of the egg during ovulation. HCG is used to cause ovulation and to treat infertility in women, and to increase sperm count in men. HCG is also used in young boys when their testicles have not dropped down into the scrotum normally. This can be caused by a pituitary gland disorder. HCG may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.
Heightened testosterone properties of HCG have been recognized by the athletes as well. In order to enhance their performance, sportsmen have been successfully using HCG. Unlike anabolic steroids, there are no adverse side-effects when using HCG for testosterone boost. However, International Olympic Committee has banned the use of HCG in 1987. This step was necessitated because increasing number of athletes started using this hormone to boost natural testosterone, which can mask synthetic testosterone generated while taking performance enhancing steroids.
Athletes take low doses of HCG to maintain testosterone production for improved performance and muscle strength. This is a safer alternative to steroids, which shrink the testicles after prolonged use causing lowered testosterone and sperm production. This is the reason why HCG has become the preferred testosterone booster for sportsmen.
