HCG Testosterone Therapy

6 Week cycle to support natural Testosterone production
LH pathway.png

HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadatropin) is a gonadatropin hormone that is produced in females that is very similar in structure LH (Leutenizing Hormone) that is produced in the pituitary gland in males.  HCG mimcks the effects of LH and triggers the production and release of testosterone to help restore and maintain testosterone production and levels.  HCG also counteracts hypodonadism that can occur with aging and prolonged TRT (Testosterone Replacement Therapy) by stimulating testicular growth.

3 Ways AMWM utilizes HCG Testosterone Therapy

  1. Initial stand alone treatment:   HCG is utilized as a primary stand alone treatment to address age related testosterone decline in patients that are younger in age and not ready to start endogenous TRT therapy.   This is recommended treatment to increase testosterone levels in males under 40 to 45 years of age.  

  2. Periodically during TRT:  HCG is used periodically during TRT to restore natural testosterone  production pathways, testicular size, and testicular function.  Age Management recommends a 6 week HCG cycle after every 3 to 6 months of TRT.

  3. In conjunction with TRT:  HCG can be used in conjunction with TRT to maintain natural testosterone production and prevent testicular atrophy.  HCG helps to balance out the highs and low fluctuations that can be associated with TRT.

Testosterone Deficiency / Male Andropause


Andropause, or male menopause, is the gradual decline with age of the male sex hormone testosterone. This is also known as testosterone deficiency or androgen deficiency and can contribute to the development of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Men’s testosterone peaks in their 20’s then decrease by 1% every year after ages 30 to 40. Signs and symptoms of low testosterone start to develop such as lower sex drive, decrease in energy, erectile dysfunction, reduced muscle mass and strength, depression, cognitive decline, and increased body fat. It is estimated that up to 6 million men in the United States are affected by testosterone deficiency. Even though the detrimental health effects of testosterone deficiency are known, it is still widely undiagnosed with only 5% of men receiving treatment. Age Management utilizes blood testing along with symptomology for diagnosis and offers a variety of testosterone replacement options such HCG cycles, Subcutaneous injections, IM injections, creams, and pellets.
