Hcg Injections For Men Side Effects

what is hcg injections for men side effects

Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a natural hormone that doctors prescribe as an injectable drug with the brand names Pregnyl and Novarel, and in a related form called Ovidrel.

HCG improves fertility by increasing sperm production in men and encouraging egg release in women.

It also helps treat sex hormone-linked conditions, such as undescended testes in young men and undeveloped sexual traits in girls.

Depending on its use, HCG is considered to be either an endocrine drug or a fertility drug. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) first approved HCG in 1974.

Uses

  • This medication is a hormone used in boys (before puberty) to cause the normal dropping of the testicles into the scrotum. It is also used in certain boys to help with normal sexual development. It works by causing the testes to release male sex hormones (e.g., testosterone).
  • This medication is also used in women to treat fertility problems. It is given after finishing another medication (menotropins) to cause the release of an egg (ovulation). It should not be used in women whose ovaries no longer make eggs properly (primary ovarian failure).
  • This medication has not been shown to be effective for weight loss and should not be used for this purpose due to risk of serious side effects.

  • Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.
  • Tell your doctor right away if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: swelling of the ankles/feet, mental/mood changes (e.g., depression, irritability), signs of early puberty in boys (e.g., facial/pubic hair, voice change, acne), pain/swelling of the breast (in boys).
