    being primary and HCG

    Would there be any benefit to adding HCG if a I'm primary? I think I read somewhere that since my testicles were still trying to make test, that HCG would be pointless. Is this correct?

    You'd have to try it first and see. Some doctors put you on a higher dose for a month to see how you respond and whether it's worth keeping you on it. Some people just need a jump start to get their body working again, although I've heard HCG monotherapy doesn't have a high success rate.

    You're talking about adding HCG to your current TRT protocol right??

    Yes. I'm currently on .5ml/100mg Test Cyp every 3.5 days IM.

    I'm pretty much a newbie at this myself, but from what what I've learned, whether you're primary or not, your nuts are shut down because of the t injections.

    Thanks for the replies. I've read the last few days that the nuts make so much more than just testosterone . I'm trying to keep this simple, but it's so hard when there's so much to learn.

    You would use HCG to maintain testicular size (though it may prove useless if your testes are very lazy and fully atrophied) and stimulate LH receptors elsewhere. It doesn't matter what form of hypogonadism you have/had.
