HCG is a hormone that is produced by the placenta of a pregnant woman........... this is what pregnancy test look for when determining if a woman is pregnant or not.
For men it will mimic LH and this will help your testicles to return from a atrophtized (sp) state.
HCG can not replace clomid........ HCG will not recover HPTA functions.

Like Mudman said
Binds to LH receptors with the same binding affinity of LH, thereby raising testosterone levels . Does Not testicular atrophy. ... Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG ) is a peptide hormone produced in pregnancy, that is made by the embryo soon after conception and later by the trophoblast (part of the placenta). Its role is to prevent the disintegration of the corpus luteum of the ovary and thereby maintain progesterone production that is critical for a pregnancy in humans. In the world of performance enhancing drugs, hCG is increasingly used in combination with various Anabolic Androgenic Steroid (AAS) cycles. When AAS are put into a male body, the body's natural negative feedback loops cause the body to shutdown its own production of testosterone via shutdown of the HPTA (hypothalamus pituitary thyroid axis). High levels of AACs that mimick the body's natural testosterone trigger the hypothalamus to shutdown its production of GnRh (Gonadatropin Releasing Hormone) from the Hypothalamus. Without GnRh the pituitary gland stops releasing LH (leutinizing hormone). LH normally travels from the pituitary via the blood stream to the testes where it triggers the production and release of testosterone. Without LH, the testes shutdown their production of testosterone, causing testicalular atrophy ("shrinking testicles"). In males, hCG mimicks LH and helps restore / maintain testosterone production in the testes. As such, hCG is commonly used during and after steroid cycles to maintain and restore testicular size as well as endogenous testosterone production.
