HCG when used in correct dosage has no side effects. For men, as part of natural bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, the usual dose is 2000 units intramuscularly once a week. I recommend a physician knowledgeable in this field should be consulted. The traditional physicians who are taught to treat everything with drugs will have no clue about the use of HCG.
I have tried it and I know several people that have tried it. It does really work but you have to follow the diet exactly. There aren't any side effects, you really don't feel hungry and you have great energy.
