I’m going to start HGH but I’m on my period. Can I still take it or wait until I finish?

Hello, Anon! Thank you for posting.

For the benefit of our readers, human growth hormone (hGH) is a naturally occurring hormone produced by the pituitary gland. It’s important for growth, cell regeneration, and cell reproduction. Synthetic hGH is used to treat poor growth in children and adults. It can also be used to treat adults with short bowel syndrome or muscle loss due to HIV or AIDS, among other things.

I can't find any information to the contrary, as far as not taking it on your period. You can ask your doctor or pharmacist to be sure. HGH should be used with care and consideration. Only use hGH that you get via a doctor’s prescription. Check in regularly with your doctor while you’re taking it. Take care to note how your body reacts and if you experience any adverse reactions.
