Human Menopausal Gonadotropin, also known as hMG, is an injectable fertility drug that contains equal amounts of FSH and LH. They are sold under the brand names of Menopur and Repronex. The LH and FSH in these drugs is derived from the urine of post menopausal women who produce the hormones in excessive amounts. The urine is extracted and purified, and then used to make the injectable medications. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

What is hMG?
hMG’s are used much like other injectable fertility medications. These medications will stimulate your ovaries to induce ovulation while also helping your ovaries to produce one or more eggs. These injections are usually started on day two or three of your period, and continued through days 8 to 14. After that, under a doctor’s watchful eye, a woman will be checked until her follicles are ready and mature. Then, an additional injection of hCG will be given to induce ovulation and then it is time to try to get pregnant!

What does hMG do?
Human Menopausal Gonadotropins are used to induce ovulation in women with several conditions such as PCOS, Endometriosis, our problems with their pituitary gland (the gland that produces LH and FSH). The injections are given as intramuscular injections, or injections directly into the muscle. The doctor can train a woman or her partner to be able to give the injections at home and not in a doctor’s office setting. The actual act of getting used to giving the injections is usually the hardest part of injectable fertility treatments.

What are the side effects?
Some women do suffer from side effects of hMG’s. The most common side effect is hyper-ovarian stimulation. This is where too many follicles form inside the ovaries, and it can cause pain and discomfort in the abdominal area. Also common with hMG’s are mood swings, headache, weak or achy feelings, and enlargement or tenderness in the breasts. You should also know that 40 percent of women who get pregnant on hMG’s get pregnant with twins or multiples.

What is its success rate?
Around 80 percent of women who start taking hMG’s will begin to ovulate within three cycles. Around 60 percent of these women will end up pregnant. That is a great success rate, although of course not all of those pregnancies will be carried to term.
You should also be aware that the cost of hMG’s is quite high: around $2000-$5000 for each cycle, and you might need up to six cycles. This medication is not always covered by insurance, so make sure you check with your doctor about that. The cost of the medication does not include other treatments that might be required in conjunction with it, such as IVF or IUI treatments.
Do You Need Protein After Your Workout?

Cool down from your workout and pound protein. It's a routine that most gym lovers have down pat – and when we slip up, we hope that all of our sweat wasn't in vain.
The so-called "anabolic window" refers to a short period of time following workouts, during which exercisers need to consume protein for muscles to properly recover, grow and become stronger. It revolves around the concept that muscles are more sensitive to protein and therefore more likely to absorb and use protein immediately after exercise than they are later throughout the day.
[See: 5 Unintended Consequences of Eating Too Much Protein.]

11 Hacks to Get More From Every Workout
"The 'anabolic window' implies that delaying protein intake by one hour or more after exercise will reduce or, worse still, prevent muscle anabolism [growth] during recovery," explains Oliver Witard, a protein metabolism researcher and senior lecturer at the University of Stirling in Scotland.
To understand why that's important, you'll need a quick biology lesson: Exercise, especially tough workouts, create microscopic damage within the worked muscles' cells, which are composed of proteins. So, the protein you eat supplies the building blocks that make up your muscles. These building blocks, or amino acids, help repair damaged muscle proteins and form new ones, with the ultimate goal of creating stronger, bigger and fitter muscles, Witard says.
Simply put, consuming protein is vital to workout recovery and results, with current research showing that for optimal muscle health, people need about double the amount of protein that experts once thought. For example, the current recommended daily allowance of protein, which represents the minimum required for good health, is 0.8 grams of daily protein per kilogram of body mass. For a 150-pound adult, that works out to 55 grams of protein per day. However, the National Strength and Conditioning Association recommends 1.5 to 2 grams of daily protein per kilogram of body mass per day for optimal muscle growth. For the same 150-pound adult, that equates to 102 to 136 grams of protein per day.
But here's the thing: Research also shows that you don't have to cram all that protein in immediately after your workout. "High-quality and short-term muscle biopsy studies report similar muscle anabolism after consuming an essential amino acid mix one, two or even three hours post-exercise," Witard says, citing 2014 research from his team, published in Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism, as well as previous 2000 research from the University of Texas published in the Journal of Applied Physiology.
Meanwhile, a 2017 Medicine & Science in Sport & Exercise study found that when men drank 22 grams of protein after their workouts, they didn't build more muscle than those who didn't. But here's the catch: All of the study's subjects were already eating roughly 1.3 grams of protein per kilogram of their body mass per day.

"Taken together, this research clearly demonstrates that skeletal muscle remains responsive to protein ingestion during time periods outside the limits usually defined by the 'anabolic window,'" Witard says. "Indeed, it appears that this 'anabolic window' extends to 24 hours post-workout, or perhaps even longer."

"If there's any benefit to getting protein within a half hour and 45 minutes of your workout as opposed to a few hours later, and I'm not convinced there is, it would be very narrow," says Brad Schoenfeld, a certified strength and conditioning specialist and board member for the National Strength and Conditioning Association, who has studied protein timing in exercisers. "As long as you hit daily protein intake, you can build muscle." ::)

Spread Out Your Protein Intake for Greater Muscle Gains
Even if the anabolic window is 24 hours or longer, there's still good reason to space out your protein intake within that time frame.
"Recent efforts have focused on understanding the muscle building response over an entire day after consuming multiple protein-containing meals," Witard says.
For example, in one 2013 study published in The Journal of Physiology, men performed resistance exercise and followed up their workout by consuming 80 grams of protein over the next 12 hours. They either consumed 20 grams every three hours, 10 grams of protein every one-and-a-half hours or 40 grams of protein every six hours. It turned out that the men who consumed 20 grams of protein every three hours following their workouts had significantly higher rates of muscle protein synthesis.
Schoenfeld's 2018 research, published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, suggests that for optimal muscle growth, people should consume between 0.4 and 0.55 grams of protein per kilogram of their body mass four times per day. For a 180-pound adult, regardless of sex, that works out to eating 33 to 45 grams of protein four times per day.
A previous 2015 review published in Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism concluded that most adults need to eat 25 to 35 grams of protein at every meal for optimal muscle health. Lean meats, fish, eggs, dairy, legumes and soy are all rich in protein and can help exercisers hit their protein goals at every meal.

Practically speaking, if you eat sufficient protein at every regular meal, you are going to get in all of the protein you need around your workouts, Schoenfeld says. No extra post-workout shakes required.

Muscles don’t keep growing (or grow at all) if your body is not in an anabolic state. Too many guys fall for the lie that a lot of these supplement companies spew.
No amount of protein powder, creatine, pre-workout, glutamine or whatever supplement they advertise will magically make your body build muscle unless you’re in an anabolic state.
Let’s breakdown how to get your body in an anabolic state and to keep it in that state so you can build muscle and maintain it!
What is exactly an anabolic state?
When your body is an anabolic state, your muscle tissue utilizes energy for growth and maintenance. The energy comes from nutrients extracted from the food sources you consume (i.e., proteins, carbs, etc.).
These food sources are broken down into smaller molecules in order to effectively supply your muscles with energy.
How to get your body in an anabolic state?
There are 4 main ways that your body can reach and maintain an anabolic state:
1. Strenuous exercise
Since the point of body anabolism is to build and maintain muscle tissue, there is no way to be an anabolic state without first stressing your muscles. The best way to induce stress in them is by exercise.
Weightlifting and calisthenics are two of the most effective ways to stress the muscles.
How natural bodybuilders and other fitness –related individuals build muscle is by lifting moderate-heavy to heavy weights between 5 to 15 reps per set.
This style of training breaks down your muscle tissue in which your body enters a catabolic state (i.e., when your muscle tissue is broken down).
Being in a catabolic state actually sets your body up to be in an anabolic state.
2. A well-balanced diet and supplements
When you stress your muscles and enter a catabolic state, you are in need of nourishment in order to advance into the anabolic state. To effectively do so, you need to follow a diet that is very nutritious.
Since your muscles are mostly made up of amino acids (i.e., protein), it needs to be replenished with those nutrients upon conclusion of an intense workout session.
That is why supplements such as protein powder are so coveted in the fitness world.
The quality protein powders contain BCAAs (Brain Chain Amino Acids). BCAA’s are composed mainly of 3 amino acids (leucine, valine, and isoleucine) that reduces protein breakdown and enhances protein synthesis.
In other words, when you bang out those grueling sets of bicep curls, taking a protein powder infused with BCAAs will make sure that your muscles are fully replenished for your next workout.
BCAAs also optimize testosterone levels, a growth hormone that is crucial in creating an anabolic environment.
3. Get at least 8 hours of quality sleep
This step is self-explanatory. A major factor towards getting your body in an anabolic state is getting at least 8 hours of quality sleep. By quality, that means eliminating all distractions at least 30 minutes prior to bedtime.
So instead of falling asleep while watching the 1000th rerun of Sportscenter like always, start getting some real sleep.
4. Minimize Stress
Understandably it is stressful when your kids are asking you a 1000 questions, your spouse asking a million questions and your mother-in-law asking a gazillion questions, but minimizing stress is essential towards creating an anabolic environment.
If you’re stressed out most of the time, your body will produce cortisol. Cortisol is a stress hormone that practically negates anabolic activity while increasing your chances of gaining body fat.
Intense exercises such as lifting moderate to heavy weights helps minimizes stress. In addition, engaging in leisure activities such as yoga, mediating, and spending time with friends helps reduce stress.
Overall, these are the 4 ways to keep your body in an anabolic state. So follow them and pray that your family stops asking you a lot of questions.
