Pregnyl has the generic name human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) and it is purified from the urine of pregnant women. Injections of this hormone can act as a fertility treatment, stimulating ovulation so the released egg can potentially be fertilized.
Sometimes doctors prescribe Pregnyl to boys to help sexual development by releasing male sex hormones. However, doctors also prescribe this medication to women experiencing infertility. Although doctors may prescribe the drug when a woman is not ovulating, called anovulation, they do not prescribe this fertility drug when the infertility is caused by primary ovarian failure. Doctors may prescribe this injectable medication to treat infertility in men, improving a low sperm count.
The human chorionic gonadrotropin (HCG) hormone in Pregnyl stimulates cells in the ovaries to produce progesterone. This stimulates ovulation, the release of eggs from the ovaries, similar to the action of luteinizing hormone (LH). With an increase in the number and frequency of eggs released from the ovaries, there is more chance that an egg will be fertilized and a pregnancy will occur.
Your fertility doctor will give you instructions on how and when to inject Pregnyl to treat your infertility, and you can also refer to your package insert. You should administer the drug intramuscularly, usually in the upper thigh or buttocks. First, dilute the vial containing the medicine and gently rotate the vial to mix the solution. Use an alcohol swab to wipe the rubber stopper of the vial and the injection site, and insert a needle through the rubber stopper of the vial. Draw the solution into the syringe, switch needles and tap the syringe to remove all air bubbles. Once you insert the needle into a muscle, pull back on the syringe plunger while holding the syringe still to inject the Pregnyl. If you see blood in the syringe, you have hit a vein and must start again with a new syringe and drug. Your fertility doctor will likely instruct you to inject 5,000 to 10,000 units of the medication beginning one day after you take your last dose of menotropins, but you should always follow your doctor's instructions when taking fertility medication. The drug is not currently available as tablets on Fertility Drugs Online.
Although these side effects may be minor, seek medical attention if they become persistent or worsen.
If you experience any of these side effects, seek medical attention immediately. A serious allergic reaction to injections is rare, but seek medical attention immediately if you experience
These may not be all the possible side effects.
Safely dispose of syringes and needles after each use, and do not reuse them. Keep the drug and needles out of the reach of children. If you miss a dose, contact your doctor for instructions. Using this drug may increase your chances of multiple births.
Doctors may prescribe Pregnyl to patients who have used menotropins such as Menopur. These menotropins use follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) to help ovaries produce follicles. Once these follicles are present, the human chorionic gonadotropin in Pregnyl helps mature and release the egg. You will likely also use this medicine with a fertility monitor and fertility tests for tracking ovulation, to determine the best time to conceive.
Infertility is the inability to conceive a child, generally after a year or more of unprotected sex. A common cause of infertility is anovulation, which is when the ovaries do not release an egg.
