FertiGyn (Pregnyl) HP 5000 is an injectable medication by Sun Pharmaceuticals based on a natural hormone produced by the placenta during pregnancy called Gonadotropin. The properties of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) are almost identical to the properties of luteinizing hormone (LH), which is generally produced in the pituitary gland.
Gonadotropin is particularly popular with bodybuilders because of its testosterone-boosting property. It is due to the ability to increase secretion from the genitals, athletes can take Gonadotropin as an anabolic drug, which has a direct effect on the growth of muscle mass. The drug also:
- Stimulates the synthesis of sex hormones in the testes (a similar spectrum of effects with testosterone)
- Activates spermatogenesis
- Contributes strongly to the development of primary and secondary sexual characteristics
- Develop male genitals
- In women, it supports the development of the placenta and stimulates the production of progesterone
Often Gonadotropin is used for weight loss as well as post cycle therapy.
To dilute the substance, it will be necessary to use a solvent solution, sodium chloride for injections of 0.9%, which can be purchased at a pharmacy without a prescription.
In terms of exposure, the drug is quite long. Due to high absorption rates, the drug works for 5-6 days. The recommended dose of the drug, if necessary to obtain an anabolic effect, is 5000 IU per week. You should inject the drug once a week for maximum results. If you reduce the dose and take the drug more often, it will likely not have the desired effect.
In post-cycle therapy, the dose of Gonadotropin depends on the duration of the steroid cycle.
- If the steroid cycle exceeds 4 weeks and the number of medications that are taken is more than two, the recommended dose of gonadotropin is 500-100 IU twice a week.
- If the steroid cycle is less than 4 weeks and 1-2 drugs are taken, then taking Gonadotropin is not necessary. Your dose may be minimal or there is usually no need to take it.
- Gonadotropin is used to lose weight at a recommended dose of 1000 IU per week.
