It mimics test production, it does not actually increase test or cause test production to happen.
Last week or your cycle, in your cycle if as I said the shrunken sack is an issue. But not during PCT for me. Seen rebound like you can not believe, gyno the works mate. HCG will cause your pituitary gland to slow down big time and this is exactly what your are trying to stimulate and increase during your PCT.
As I said many folks do use it and they are happy with using. At the end of the day it is each one of us who make that call. I personally will only advocate using in the last three weeks of a cycle to give the system a wake up call before the post cycle protocol. The body will not produce natural LH for example until the HCG is out of your system. So for me, and I must stress for me (only) it does not make good sense based on the science as I understand it.
Happy to be re-educated here.
