Uses of HCG Injections (Chorionic Gonadotropin)
HCG Injections (Chorionic Gonadotropin for injection, USP) is a extremely purified pyrogen-free preparation prepared from the urine of pregnant females. This medicine is used to stimulate egg release (ovulation) in women who are not ovulating and in whom ovarian failure is not the cause of infertility.
It is used for intramuscular injection and available in multiple dose vials of sterile dried powder.Each package also contains a 10 mL vial of solvent containing water for injection with 0.56% Sodium Chloride and 0.9% Benzyl Alcohol.
HCG Injection Dosage
The dosage of HCG injection has to be administered Intramuscularly. It will depend upon the indication for use, the age and weight of the patient, and the doctor’s preference.
The dose for induction of ovulation and pregnancy in the anovulatory, infertile woman in whom the cause of anovulation is sec ondary and not due to primary ovarian failure and who has been appropriately pretreated with human menotropins is 5,000 to 10,000 USP units one day following the last dose of menotropins.
Storage Instructions for HCG Injections
Each vial of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Injection (HCG Shot) is sold along with a vial of sterile diluent containing 30 mL of bacteriostatic water for Injection USP, containing 0.9% benzyl alcohol.
Store dry product at 20°C to 25°C (68°F to 77°F), excursions permitted between 15°C and 30°C (between 59°F and 86°F)
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Injection Contraindications
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Injection are contraindicated in patients with Precocious puberty, prostatic carcinoma or other androgen-dependent neoplasm, prior allergic reaction to HCG.
HCG can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman. Combined treatment with HCG/PMS (pregnant mare’s serum) has been observed to cause high incidences of external congenital anomalies in the offspring of mice, in a dose-dependent manner.
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Injection Side Effects
The possible side effects of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin injection include Headache, irritability, restlessness, depression, fatigue, edema, precocious puberty, gynecomastia, pain at the site of injection.
Hypersensitivity reactions both localized and systemic in nature, including erythema, urticaria, rash, angioedema, dyspnea and shortness of breath, have been reported. The relationship of these allergic-like events to the polypeptide hormone or the diluent containing benzyl alcohol is not clear.
Warnings and Precautions When Using HCG Injection
The precautions are as follows:
1. Induction of androgen secretion by HCG may induce precocious puberty in patients treated for cryptorchidism. Therapy should be discontinued if signs of precocious puberty occur.
2. Since androgens may cause fluid retention, HCG shots should be used with caution in patients with cardiac or renal disease, epilepsy, migraine, or asthma.
Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility:
There have been sporadic reports of testicular tumors in otherwise healthy young men receiving HCG injections for secondary infertility. A causative relationship between HCG and tumor development in these men has not been established.
HCG injection should be used in conjunction with human menopausal gonadotropins only by physicians experienced with infertility problems who are familiar with the criteria for patient selection, contraindications, warnings, precautions, and side effects described for menotropins. The principal serious adverse reactions during this use are:
(1) Ovarian hyperstimulation, a syndrome of sudden ovarian enlargement, ascites with or without pain, and/or pleural effusion;
(2) Enlargement of preexisting ovarian cysts or rupture of ovarian cysts with resultant hemoperitoneum;
(3) Multiple births, and
(4) Arterial thromboembolism.
The acute toxicity of urinary gonadotropin medications has been shown to be very low. Despite this, there exists a possibility that too high a dosage of hCG can lead to ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome.
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Injection During Pregnancy
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Injection has been classified by the US FDA as Pregnancy Category X. Do not use this medicine without your doctor’s consent in case you are pregnant. Stop using this medication and inform your doctor immediately if you become pregnant during treatment.
Combined HCG/PMS (pregnant mare’s serum) therapy has been observed to cause high incidences of external congenital anomalies in the offspring of mice, in a dose-dependent manner. The potential for causing similar effects in humans has not been determined.
It is not known whether Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when HCG injection is administered to a nursing woman.
Do not use this medication without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.
How To Properly Mix HCG:
As you all know, hcg comes in a powder form and needs to be mixed with bacteriostatic water in preparation for injections. In this example, we will use a 5,000 unit vial. Obviously, you need to observe the math and adjust according to how you want your hCG concentrated per CC.
Step 1: Transfer 5 CC’s of bacteriostatic water into the vial containing your HCG powder. No more than 3 CC’s at once.
Step 2: After each bacteriostatic water transfer, you’ll need to draw out just as much air to release pressure.
Step 3: Swirl the mix gently and keep it in the refrigerator.
Once you’ve completed your mix above, you now have a 5,000 iu vial that contains 1,000 iu’s of HCG for every CC. So if you want to shoot 250iu, that would be 0.25 CC/ML. Or 25 units on a slim pin. I usually suggest injectable B12 to mix HCG. Which will Help you to get both B12 and HCG in one shot.
How to dose and to the math when mixing the HCG:
A lot of people still don’t understand how to calculate their doses after mixing. Note that CC and ML are the same thing. So here is the math to prevent anymore questions about this…
A standard insulin syringe can hold 1 CC in volume. Each barrel will have markings in 1 unit increments up to 100. So each CC displays 100 unit markings.
Step 1: Amount of HCG per CC (result of step 1) DIVIDED BY 100 (number of units on a pin) = amount of hCG per unit.
Example: 10,000 / 10 = 1,000H
Step 2: Amount of hCG per CC (result of step 1) DIVIDED BY 100 (number of units on a pin) = amount of HCG per unit.
Example: 1,000 / 100 = 10
Step 3: Amount desired per injection DIVIDED BY amount of hCG per unit (result of step 2) = Number of units to draw from your mixed vial.
For example: 250 IU / 10 = 25 units. You would draw 25 units, or a quarter of a CC on a pin.
