What is this medication? 

PREGNYL/OVIDREL (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin)
Gonadotropin, Ovulation Stimulator

PREGNYL/OVIDREL (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is officially indicated for infertility and hypogonadism.  It is also prescribed off-label for weight loss.

How does this medication work?

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) is a natural analog of the pituitary produced hormone, luteinizing hormone (LH) which stimulates testosterone production by the testes in men and estrogen by the ovaries in women.  PREGNYL is isolated from the urine of pregnant women.  On the other hand, OVIDREL is produced by recombinant DNA technology.  Both PREGNYL and OVIDREL differ slightly in their molecular structure with the later consisting of dimeric HCG with nce to suggest any different outcomes can be expected between using OVIDREL or PREGNYL.

How should I take this medication? 

IM: Inject intramuscularly 5000IU to 10000IU one day after the last dose of a follicle stimulating agent such as menotropin. 

SQ: Inject subcutaneously 250IU one day following the last dose of a follicle stimulating agent such as menotropin.

Note: In men, serum testosterone and semen analysis is recommended in cases of infertility and/or hypogonadism.  In women, ultrasound and/or estradiol levels to assess follicle development; ovulation (basal body temperature, serum progestin, menstruation) should be closely followed in cases of infertility.
