Gonadotropin refers to the group of protein hormones that occurs in the placenta of a pregnant woman. It is the basis for the formation of estrogen and progestin in the yellow body. The Gonadotropin intake by women promotes ovulation and increase the possibility to get pregnant.
Gonadotropin has attracted the bodybuilders’ attention for another reason. The reason is that the given hormone has practically the same effects as a luteinizing hormone that occurs in the pituitary gland. In young men, luteinising hormone promotes the formation of germ cells in the testicles, stimulates interstitial cells, and leads to the production of testosterone and dihydrotestosterone.
In order to get the maximal effect from chorionic gonadotropin, it should be used in the form of injections. Gonadotropin immediately enter the blood and begin its action. Moreover, it is a unique drug due to the property to affect the body two times. The first peak of the hormone level occurs 2 hours after HCG intake when the plasma testosterone is maximal in the blood and the second one occurs in 46-48 hours since the injection.
