HUCOG - 5000 HP and HUCOG -10000 HP HCG Injections(Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Injections) – Product Information
HUCOG - 5000 HP and HUCOG - 10000 HP Injections (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Injections) are used for induction of Ovulation in subfertility due to anovulation or impaired follicle-ripening. HCG injections are also used for preparation of follicles for puncture in controlled ovarian hyperstimulation programmes (for medically assisted reproductive techniques) and luteal phase support in the female. In males it is used for Hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism (also cases of idiopathic dysspermias have shown a positive response to gonadotrophins), delayed puberty associated with insufficient gonadotrophic pituitary function and cryptorchidism, not due to anatomical obstruction. Human Chorionic Gonadotropin injections are available for sale at the Swiss Pharmacy from only $28 per vial (injection).

Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient
The active ingredient present in Hucog - 5000 HP and Hucog -10000 HP HCG injection is Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. Each vial of Hucog HCG injection contains 5000 iu or 10000 iu of purified Human Chorionic Gonadotropin repectively.
Mechanism of Action
The action of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is virtually identical to that of pituitary LH, although hCG appears to have a small degree of Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) activity as well.
Chorionic Gonadotropin for Injection, USP is given to males in an effort to stimulate the interstitial cells of the testes (cells of Leydig) to produce androgen. The response to hCG may be considered similar to the effect caused by the interstitial cell stimulating hormone (ICSH) from the anterior lobe of the pituitary. Androgen stimulation in the male leads to the development of secondary sex characteristics and may stimulate testicular descent when no anatomical impediment to descent is present.
Chorionic Gonadotropin for Injection is given in the second phase of the cycle in an effort to maintain the functional integrity of the corpus luteum and to stimulate its secretion of progesterone. Response to hCG may be considered similar to the effect caused by the luteotrophic hormone from the pituitary gland.
Uses of Hucog HCG Injection (Generic Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Injection)
In females, Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is used to help conception occur. It is usually given in combination with other drugs such as menotropins and urofollitropin. Many women being treated with these drugs usually have already tried Clomiphene
alone (e.g., Fertomid Tablets) and have not been able to conceive yet. HUCOG - 5000 HP and 10000 HP Injection is also used in in vitro fertilization (IVF) programs.
In males, LH and chorionic gonadotropin stimulate the testes to produce male hormones such as testosterone. Testosterone causes the enlargement of the penis and testes and the growth of pubic and underarm hair. It also increases the production of sperm.

The dosage of Hucog - 5000 HP and 10000 HP HCG Injection (Generic Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Injection) for various indications is given below.
Dosage In The Female:
Ovulation Induction In Subfertility Due To Anovulation Or Impaired Follicle-Ripening
Usually, one injection of 5,000 to 10,000 IU Hucog - 5000 HP and 10000 HP to complete treatment with an FS H-c ontaining preparation.
Preparation Of Follicles For Puncture In Controlled Ovarian Hyperstimulation Programs
Usually, one injection of 5,000 to 10,000 IU Hucog - 5000 HP and 10000 HP to complete treatment with an FS H-c ontaining preparation.

Two to three repeat injections of 1,000 to 3,000 IU each may be given within nine days following ovulation or embryo transfer (for example, on day 3, 6 and 9 after ovulation induction).
Dosage In The Male:
1,000-2,000 IU Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, two to three times per week.

This treatment should be continued for at least three months before any improvement in spermatogenesis can be expected. During this treatment testosterone replacement therapy should be suspended. Once achieved, the improvement may sometimes be maintained by hCG alone.
Delayed Puberty Associated With Insufficient Gonadotrophic Pituitary Function:
1,500 IU two to three times a week for at least six months.
Cryptorchidism Not Due To Anatomical Destruction:
Under 2 years of age: 250 IU twice weekly for six weeks.

In women undergoing ovulation induction, an excessive ovarian response to follicular stimulating agents may lead to the development of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome if Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is given to induce ovulation or to support the corpus luteum. It is of primary importance that u-hCG should be withheld in such cycles.
Rupture of ovarian cysts with resultant haemoperitoneum
Thromboembolic complications: Thromboembolic events have been reported following gonadotropin/ Human Chorionic Gonadotropin therapy both in association with and separated from OHSS. These included thrombophlebitis, pulmonary embolism, stroke, and arterial occlusion resulting in loss of a limb. In rare cases, thromboembolic events have resulted in death.
Multiple pregnancy: The incidence of multiple pregnancies and births is increased following gonadotropins/u-hCG therapy stimulation and ovulation induction in patients attempting in vivo conception. The risk of multiple pregnancy following ART is related to the number of oocytes/embryos replaced.
Pregnancy testing A false positive result-xnjght be obtained if the test is carried out in a patient who has recently undergone (over the last 7 days) or is still having u-hCG administration.
Infertile women undergoing Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) have an increased incidence of ectopic pregnancy.
Rates of pregnancy loss in women undergoing ART are higher than in the normal population.
The incidence of congenital malformations after Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) may be slightly higher than after spontaneous conceptions. This slightly higher incidence is thought to be related to differences in parenteral characteristics (e.g. maternal age, sperm characteristics) and to the higher incidence of multiple gestations after ART.
Androgens may cause fluid retention in the male if high doses of Hucog - 5000 HP and 10000 HP HCG Injection are administered. In such cases dosage should be considerably reduced particularly in patients with cardiac or renal disease, epilepsy, migraine or asthma.
Sexual precocity: HCG may cause sexual precocity when administered in young patients for cryptorchidism. If signs are observed, treatment should be stopped. If continued therapy is considered necessary, a reduced dosage regimen should be instituted.
Finally, HCG (Hucog - 5000 HP and 10000 HP) may induce gynecomastia.
