Excerpt: What is the half life of HCG? I did some searching but have not come up with an answer. I would think the half life would have to be know to determine an appropriate dose schedule.

    Does 33 hours for hCG halflife seem right?

    I did some more searching and came up with this:

    The hCG elimination halflife-time EHT is about 33 hours for intramuscular or subcutaneous injections.

    Does 33 hours for hCG halflife seem right?

    One point that you may consider is that the effects may long exceed the half-life.

    According to the PDR
    Pregnyl (HCG)

    It approves the following regimens depending on Physician's prefernce:
    For cyrptochridism in pre-pubertal males not due to anatomcial obstruction
    1- 4000 USP 3 x a week for 3 weeks
    2- 5000 USP every 2nd day for 4 injections
    3-15 injections of 500-1000 USP over 6 weeks
    4- 500 USP 3x weekly for 4-6 weeks
    For selected cases of of hypogonadotropic function
    1- 500-1000 USP 3x a week for 3 weeks, followed by same dose 2 x a week for 3 weeks
    2- 4000 USP 3 x a week for 6-9 months then reduced 2000 USP 3 x a week for 3 more months




    Now I am guessing that steroid inhibition is not what the above indictated uses are for. It seems to me to try a selected dose for 3 x a week for a week or 2, and if that doesnt do it, do more. This does not seem to be an exact science here. Every other med in the PDR is pretty specific. I am also guessing 1 USP = 1 IU. But I will find out for sure on that.
