An introduction to HCG, How it treats Low T while supporting fertility
As leaders in diagnosing and treating conditions that affect male reproductive and sexual health, Low T Guru in Frisco, Texas, is privileged to offer so many therapeutic options for patients throughout the Dallas metroplex. Led by Dr. Jeffrey Buch, our team is well-versed in the benefits and potential drawbacks of each treatment option or technology. Due to the unique advantages and disadvantages of each, we first get to know our patients and their specific needs and goals. Notably, some therapies for low testosterone are not appropriate for patients who still desire children, as fertility can be adversely affected.
Alternatively, HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is an appropriate treatment for men with low levels of testosterone who are concerned about fertility-related side effects. It may also be an appropriate treatment for those patients with male infertility or fertility-related challenges.
Following a thorough evaluation at our office in Frisco, Dr. Buch may determine that HCG injections are well-suited to your needs, circumstances, and life goals. It is an FDA-approved alternative to products with side effects such as testicular atrophy, altered sexual function, and overall infertility. Instead, HCG treats testosterone deficiency by increasing the size of the gonads or testes over time (making it appropriate for patients diagnosed with secondary hypogonadism), boosting testosterone levels, and aiding in fertility.
In fact, HCG’s mechanism of action triggers the production of both testosterone and sperm by stimulating special cells in the testes and structures or tubules within the testes, respectively. By elevating the levels of testosterone, for instance, our patients who have undergone HCG treatment also enjoyed:
- Higher levels of energy
- Elevated, less depressed moods
- More satisfying sex lives
- Improved sexual performance
- Renewed self-confidence.
HCG may be injected subcutaneously (under the skin) or intramuscularly (in the muscle). The number of weekly injections, as well as the dosage, varies. We will provide detailed instructions and advice on proper treatment methods, schedules, and formulations based on what we find during an evaluation. We will also monitor the likes of testosterone levels on an ongoing basis. Multiple studies have concluded that HCG is a safe and effective treatment. Most men do not experience any adverse side effects.
