Uses of HGP Injection

Benefits of HGP Injection

In Prevention of Premature Labor

HGP 250mg Injection is a man-made, injectable form of the female hormone called progesterone, that helps lower the risk of delivering the baby too early (premature labor), particularly in women who have had this complication in an earlier pregnancy. Progesterone is a hormone that thickens the lining of the uterus and prepares it for the growth and development of the baby. So, it helps your uterus grow during pregnancy and also prevents any contractions that can otherwise lead to miscarriage.

Side effects of HGP Injection

Most side effects do not require any medical attention and disappear as your body adjusts to the medicine. Consult your doctor if they persist or if you’re worried about them

  • Nausea
  • Itching

How to use HGP Injection

How HGP Injection works

HGP 250mg Injection is a progestin (female hormone). It works by modulating the immune response of the mother to prevent rejection of the embryo and allow its attachment to the uterus. This prevents miscarriage and helps lower the risk of premature birth in women who have had one premature delivery in the past.
