After much debate and searching, I was able to get a hold of 10,000 IU of HCG and started my first injection yesterday. Going to keep a log to keep track of everything. Planning on doing 250 IU’s M W F for 6 months and then see if anything sticks. Posting my most recent bloodwork(10/08/2020) Also going to add the past 3 years bloodwork (From the beginning of PFS - no baseline pre-pfs that I know of.)
Day 1 - Injected .025 CC of HCG instead of .25 because I’m an idiot and can’t do basic math. Came back an hour later and made up the difference as the first dose was essentially a microdose. Within the first few hours I noticed some nausea and was getting a bit light headed when getting up from sitting position. Not sure if this is usual and or is a placebo. Not really much else to report
Day 2 - Just woke up and something feels “different.” Was in the half asleep/half awake state and realized while my eyes are still closed that something is happening down there. Pre-hcg I still occasionally wake up with morning wood but this felt again, “different.” Felt fuller, harder and much to my surprise, when I got out to bed to go to the bathroom, I was still hard. Over the past 3 years even with tadafil, even if i wake up with an erection it almost immediately has gone away the second I go from what I call the half awake/half asleep state to the awake state. But this morning it did not do that. It lasted for quite a bit. Actually reminded me of what It felt like all my life.
Day 8: Not really any noticeable differences for better or for worse. Would be willing to chalk up anything I’ve experienced as a placebo. Probably going to going to not expect anything for at least 10+ weeks but will keep updated.
Day 11: Going on two weeks. Pretty interesting response so far. Things I am noticing: balls look/feel bigger/fuller, penis on average definitely looks and feels fuller while both flaccid and hard. Penile sensation on average seems to have increased and same with semen volume.
Day 17: Feeling pretty good. Still feel very confident in what I said before - without a doubt helping penile shrinkage/flattening/ect and also the balls look more alive and full still. Libido has increased on average as well. Would say besides cialis, it’s the best thing by far that I’ve tried with no noticeable side effects. I am still using Cialis as I’m not ready to give that up but maybe someday.
I will say I still experience normal PFS things still. Namely sometimes what I call the arousal-block where I am masturbating/having sex and as arousal builds up sometimes my brain just feels like it was shocked and my dick goes limp and my brain stops thinking about sex.
I still don’t notice any real mental effects which seems a bit odd but I’m okay with that. I will say it feels a bit like it comes and goes in waves, kind of like the opposite of PFS. Haven’t noticed any real negative side effects which is nice.
Find it hard to believe I’m noticing anything this early with such a low dose. Though, if finasteride taught me anything, its that big things can come in small packages.
I don’t have any negative sides this morning that I can tell - the nausea and light headedness I experienced last night doesn’t seem to be here today. Maybe it will come back when I do my next injection, tbd. Will keep everyone updated.
