No matter what medication you take, there are always side effects. This is because every body is different, and will respond to medication differently. So, even though the vast majority of people will be fine, every once in a while medication will react badly with a person’s body, causing side effects. These side effects are recorded so that you the consumer are fully knowledgeable and capable of taking necessary preventative steps.
This all becomes much more difficult when you enter the world of dietary supplements. This is part due to the lack of regulations, that allows any number of products (and even more counterfeit products) to spread everywhere. Side effects then are something that people only experience as they take the product.

Side Effects In Males
With males, the most common side effect is breast enlargement. When it comes to pre-pubescent men, side effects can include unexpected height increases, facial hair growth, and pubic hair growth. Finally, hCG can bring about early puberty in children.
