Updated: Apr 8, 2022

hCG (Human Chorionic Gondatropin)

The PCT Peptide


A subcutaneous injection is administered for 2-3 weeks every 3-4 days between 500 and 1000 IU each injection. Not to be used long-term. For weight loss it has been used in small amounts daily for 4-6 weeks.


  • regulates sex hormone levels (estrogen and progesterone for women, testosterone for men)

  • may help regulate appetite suppression

  • increase testosterone production in men

  • may support thyroid function


hCG or Human Chorionic Gondaotropin is naturally produced by the cells surrounding a growing embryo. It is a glycoprotein consisting of oligosaccharide chains covalently connected to amino-acid side chains. Consisting of 237 amino acids in total. Women have used hCG to lose weight by its ability to regulate estrogen and progesterone, having these hormonal imbalances causes stubborn fat gain in less common areas (arms, lower legs,). Small amounts of hCG combined with a slightly reduced caloric intake, has been found to aid in fat loss for individuals with hormonal imbalances. hCG crash diet, restrictive calories of up to 500 calories per day has been found to be ineffective for permanent weight loss.

Mechanism of Action

hCG interacts with the LHCG receptor, or Luteinizing Hormone Choriogonadotropin. How hCG works as a PCT: when natural testosterone and hormone production are suppressed by supplementing exogenous hormones the pituitary gland stops releasing luteinizing hormone which triggers the release of testosterone. Without luteinizing hormone the testes stop producing testosterone.
