    What is the most important information I should know about HCG?
    • Treatment with HCG increases the likelihood of multiple births. Multiple births carry additional risk both for the mother and for the babies.
    • A small percentage of female patients treated with HCG have developed the ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), especially after the first cycle of therapy. Symptoms of OHSS include severe pelvic pain, swelling of the hands or legs, abdominal pain and swelling, shortness of breath, weight gain, low urine output, diarrhea, and nausea or vomiting. OHSS can be fatal. Notify your doctor immediately or seek emergency medical attention if you develop any of these symptoms.




    What is HCG?
    • Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a naturally occurring hormone produced by the placenta. HCG supports the normal development of an egg from the ovary and can induce ovulation. HCG also stimulates the production of androgens in men and progesterone in women.
    • HCG is used to induce of ovulation (the release of an egg from the ovary) and to assist in getting pregnant. HCG is also used to stimulate the descent of undescended testicles in boys before puberty and to replace hormones in males with a pituitary deficiency.
    • HCG may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.




    What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before using HCG?
    • Do not use HCG without first talking to your doctor if you
    · might be pregnant;
    · have a thyroid problem;
    · have adrenal dysfunction;
    · have precocious puberty;
    · have cancer or a tumor of the breast, ovary, uterus, prostate, hypothalamus, or pituitary gland;
    · have undiagnosed uterine bleeding;
    · have heart disease;
    · have kidney disease;
    · have epilepsy;
    · have migraines; or
    · have asthma.
    • You may not be able to use HCG, or you may require a dosage adjustment or special monitoring if you have any of the conditions listed above.
    • Do not use this medication if you are pregnant. HCG is in the FDA pregnancy category X. This means that HCG is known to cause birth defects in an unborn baby.
    • It is not known whether HCG passes into breast milk. Do not use HCG without first talking to your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.




    How should I use HCG?
    • Use HCG exactly as directed by your doctor. If you do not understand these directions, ask your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist to explain them to you.
    • HCG is administered as an injection. If you are administering this medication at home, your doctor or healthcare provider will give you detailed instructions on how to mix the solution and give the injection. Do not inject this medication if you are not sure how.
    • After mixing the Ovidrel solution for injection, use it immediately.
    • Use Profasi within 30 days of mixing and use Pregnyl and Novarel within 60 days of mixing. Store mixed solutions of Pregnyl, Novarel, and Profasi in the refrigerator.
    • Do not inject any medication that is discolored or that has particles in it.
    • Never reuse a needle or syringe. Dispose of all needles and syringes in an appropriate, puncture-resistant disposal container.

    What happens if I miss a dose?
    • Contact your doctor if you miss a dose of HCG.




    What happens if I overdose?

    What should I avoid while using HCG?

    · pain, warmth, redness, numbness, or tingling in an arm or leg (which may indicate a blood clot); or
    · confusion, severe dizziness, or severe headache (which may indicate a blood clot in the head).
    • A small percentage of female patients treated with HCG have developed the ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), especially after the first cycle of therapy. Symptoms of OHSS include severe pelvic pain, swelling of the hands or legs, abdominal pain and swelling, shortness of breath, weight gain, low urine output, diarrhea, and nausea or vomiting.
