HCG is a highly beneficial hormone in fertility stimulation and in the treatment of low testosterone. In fact, it is rapidly becoming an integral part of many low testosterone treatment plans. For the anabolic steroid user, the performance enhancing athlete, HCG can be beneficial but it can also be damaging. Many get very carried away with on cycle use and lead themselves to an early low testosterone condition. Granted, most men will benefit from testosterone therapy at some point in their life regardless, but many steroid users end up requiring sooner and often due to improper HCG use. The hormone can be beneficial but use must be kept moderate and monitored.
Many abusers who inject anabolic steroids may use nonsterile injection techniques or share contaminated needles with other abusers. In addition, some steroid preparations are manufactured illegally under nonsterile conditions. These factors put abusers at risk for acquiring lifethreatening viral infections, such as HIV and hepatitis B and C. Abusers also can develop endocarditis, a bacterial infection that causes a potentially fatal inflammation of the inner lining of the heart. Bacterial infections also can cause pain and abscess formation at injection sites.
i guess if there are some bad effects they may even be mild or not felt soon. I have read of a study where cortisone had good effect for the first 6 months but then checked after 12 months those who did not take cortisone were better than those who took. I have also read that cortisone kills chondrocytes (the cells that make cartilage) and if this is the case, i suppose it will affect the normal functioning of the joint and the results can appear after a couple of years maybe. That' s why i am asking about an injection which happened long time ago and if people noticed something or had an issue diagnosed with MRI etc. Thank you for your response.
