FAQs

Q. What is HUCOG and what is it used for?

HUCOG contains a hormone called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG), which is also produced naturally by the body. It is used in women, who have a problem with ovulation (release of an egg). It is also used along with other fertility medicines, to help produce eggs in women who are undergoing assisted reproductive technology (ART) procedures such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF). In males, it is used to treat conditions like delayed puberty, and low sperm cell count.

Q. Is HUCOG painful?

Usually any injection can cause pain. There are reports that HUCOG can cause mild tenderness or tingling at the site of injection. This is quite normal for an injection procedure. However, if you experience unbearable pain after the injection, seek immediate medical advice.

Q. Where do you inject HUCOG?

This medicine is injected in the supervision of medical healthcare professional only. When HUCOG injections are to be given in the muscles, it is preferred to inject it into the buttocks or the arms. If it is to be injected beneath the skin, then it is advised to pinch a part of the skin from the abdomen or front of thigh, and then inject the medicine.

Q. Are there any chances of twins when treated with HUCOG?

Yes, being treated for infertility with HUCOG may increase the chances of getting pregnant with more than one child at the same time. In fact, it has been very commonly noticed that women develop twin pregnancy if being treated with this medicine. Consult your doctor for any such queries and follow the advice as directed.

Q. Why do doctors suggest HUCOG injections during pregnancy?

HUCOG is a hormone that helps in pregnancy. It is responsible for the normal development of the egg in a woman's ovary. It also helps in ovulation by stimulating the release of the egg. While HUCOG is used in women to treat infertility, in men it is used to increase sperm count. It is usually not given if you are already pregnant. Consult your doctor and give a proper history before you start this medication.
