Fertigyn is an injectable drug containing as active substance Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. HCG is often used to suppress hunger and trigger the human body’s use of fat for fuel. Bodybuilders use it in cycles and in post cycle therapy to lose gain and to increase testosterone production. The compound is also important in restoring the testes to the normal abilities, due to the facts that many times after anabolic steroids usage the testes of an athlete may shrink and Fertigyn 5000 IU is effective in returning them to normal size. It is also useful during a low calorie diet to help burn off that extra layer of fat over their muscles. For this purpose it is also very useful for female athletes.
The average dosage of Fertigyn during a cycle is between 500iu to 1000iu every week. In post cycle therapy Fertigyn should be used in smaller doses, about 250 – 500iu every day for 2 or 3 weeks. Smaller doses are enough to begin reversal process of testicular atrophy. Fertigyn can be used with Clomid or Nolvadex in the PCT and continue using them after HCG is no longer part of the cycle. The most common side effects of Fertigyn are: headache, feeling restless or irritable, mild swelling or water weight gain, depression, breast tenderness or swelling; or pain, swelling, or irritation where the injection is given, stomach pain and swelling, shortness of breath, weight gain, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting.
