What does HCG Do?
Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a hormone produced by the placenta during pregnancy. It helps thicken a person’s uterine lining to support a growing embryo and tells the body to stop menstruation. HCG levels rise after conception and continue to rise until about 10 weeks in pregnancy.
Why is HCG no longer available?
Only major manufacturing facilities that produce mass production pharmaceuticals will now be able to manufacture HCG. This will drive up the cost for HCG and make it virtually impossible to access HCG for weight loss clinics. HCG will soon become extremely expensive to access, possibly thousands of dollars more.
How much does HCG diet cost?
