Every time I tried using HCG, it gave me anxiety.
Interestingly, I’ve read scant research suggesting that HCG decreases the efficacy of an enzyme responsible for clearing cortisol from the body. It is hypothesized (in the same literature) that this can contribute to anxiety.

I stopped HCG about a month ago when there was a shortage. I plan to take just testosterone for a little while (several months) to see how I do on a simple protocol.

The main problem I have with HCG is a sense of inconsistency. Sometimes I really feel the HCG in a positive way (libido, testicles, etc), other times it seems to just give me anxiety?

For me, HCG seems to add a significant amount to my free testosterone. When I have tested with just testosterone, I will come in at e.g. 12 pg/mL (Range: 8.7-25.1) on ED injections. With HCG added, this jumps up to 22 pg/mL (Range: 8.7-25.1) and I feel subjectively better. I have multiple labs showing this trend.

I now worry I may need a larger dose of testosterone to have the same subjective benefits I experienced before, and I was already a low responder. I currently suffer from low libido, for instance.

Was ur libido good while on HCG and with a higher free T level, or it was about the same as it is now?
