What is HCG 2000IU?
Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG 2000IU) is a hormone that promotes the normal development of an egg in a woman’s ovary and stimulates the release of the egg during ovulation.
HCG is used to cause ovulation and to treat infertility in women, and to increase the number of sperm in men. HCG is also used in young boys when their testicles have not descended into the scrotum normally. This can be caused by a disorder of the pituitary gland.
HCG may also be used for other purposes not listed.
HCG is given by injection under the skin or into a muscle. If you use HCG at home, your doctor, nurse or pharmacist will give you specific instructions on how and where to inject this medicine. Do not self-inject HCG if you do not fully understand how to properly inject and dispose of used needles and syringes.
Call your doctor immediately if you have any of these signs of blood clot: pain, heat, redness, numbness or tingling in the arm or leg; confusion, extreme vertigo, or severe headache.
Some women using this drug have developed a condition called ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), especially after the first cycle of treatment. OHSS can be a deadly disease. Call your doctor immediately if you have symptoms of OHSS: severe pelvic pain, swelling of hands or legs, pain and swelling, shortness of breath, weight gain, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting, and urinating less than normal.
HCG can cause early puberty in young boys. Call your doctor if a boy using this medication shows early signs of puberty, such as a deeper voice, pubic hair growth, and an increase in acne or sweating.
The use of HCG can increase your chances of having a multiple pregnancy (twins, triplets, quadruplets, etc.). Multiple pregnancy is a high-risk pregnancy for both mother and baby. Follow your doctor’s instructions for any special care you may need during your pregnancy.
Although HCG can help you become pregnant, this medicine belongs to the FDA pregnancy category X. This means that using the drug once you are pregnant can cause birth defects in the baby. Do not use HCG if you are pregnant. Tell your doctor immediately if you become pregnant during treatment.
How should I use HCG 2000IU?
Use HCG exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not use it in larger quantities or longer than recommended. Follow the instructions on your prescription label.
HCG is given by injection under the skin or into a muscle. Your doctor, nurse, or other health care provider will give you this injection. You can be shown how to inject your medicine at home.
