Question: My doctor didn't give me the dosage amount for Pregnyl I need to take tomorrow night. Will it hurt if I take the full 10,000 IU? I saw on the back of their sheet that 10,000 is the most common dosage, and I have no refills. And when I call the answering service they get testy with me that this is not an emergency. Well, it kind of is because I spent a lot of time and money! And they should have told me the correct dosage! Anyway, any help you can provide would be awesome!

Hi,

Thanks for your feedback.

The usual recommended dose for induction of ovulation for egg retrieval purposes is 10,000 IU. Monitoring is essential to watch for ovarian hyper-stimulation.

Hello, I am from Bulgaria â?? Sofia. I am practicing body-building actively and I have been taking anabolic steroids since several years. Recently due to my participation in a republic contest of bodybuilding I decided to make exams to find out what is my current condition after steroids administration and is the recovery of my organism after the diet goes well as it is expected.

The results of my blood exams were not very good and showed low ranges of testosterone although the estradiol hormone ranges were high. After several visits to specialist endocrinologists and andrologists I was advised not to take or make anything despite my desire to try a treatment with pregnyl. One of the endocrinologist I was at told me that if within two months the tests shows the same ranges of low testosterone I will never recover myself and I will be fated to be testosterone dependent for life. I will be very glad if you can advise me to whom should I turn to or the treatment I should follow.

Could you please recommend a treatment to boost the testosterone production. Thank you very much in advance!
