    First cycle, do I need HCG?

    Can someone break down HCG and if I need it after running my first cycle

    During cycle. Not after.

    Hcg is something found in pregnant women's urine that somehow keeps your balls from shrinking while using gear, I personally think its a waste as my balls don't really shrink to bad but others swear by it, you don't really need it but it couldn't hurt to use it
    And austinite is right it's during a cycle

    It mimics LH tricking the testees into producing test. Its beneficial because it prevents you from being completely shut down but just like anything else that you out into your body, it slows down natural production of LH (leutenizing hormone) if used for extended periods. This is (imo) just as destructive on your hpta as being shut down ... some use hcg instead of clomid during pct.

    It maintains testicular size and function, recovery is far better when your testicles have still been active rather than just letting them waste away. During the cycle is a must IMHO.

    also I'm doing a 12 week cycle, on week three now. My supplier told me they might shrink around month 3 of cycle which will be the end of cycle. Other than shrinking will I have other sides from the shrinking. @Good when you say "shut down" what does that mean? Will I still have good libido because right now my wood is working like it was when I was in HS. Extra stiff, mornings are so crazy because I have to sit down to pee. Hasn't been like that in about 5 years. Yep I can say I'm not having any testicle problems now and I'm lov'in it!

    Shut down means that your endocrine system is not signaling your testicles to function due to the fact that you have added exogenous testosterone to your system. This is why we recommend running hcg to maintain testicular function though you still will not be producing much lh. Lh is the fastest thing to rebound once you end the cycle and the exogenous test has left your system

    There is an excellent thread out there on all the uses and benefits of hcg on this site. Do a search. It is well worth the time. Good luck.
