ZyHCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin), also known as HCG, is most commonly used to promote weight loss and to treat female infertility, male infertility, and delayed puberty in young boys.
What is ZyHCG?
ZYHCG is a hormonal treatment used to help with weight loss, as well as to treat infertility in both men and women. It operates by stimulating the cells in the testicles to increase the production of semen in men or ovulation in women. This action also makes it useful for treating delayed onset of puberty in boys and encouraging the testicles to lower into the scrotum. This product comes packaged complete with one sealed single-use needle suitable for administering this medication.
How is ZYHCG used?
Strictly follow your health care provider’s instructions when using ZYHCG to ensure you are getting the safest and most effective results from treatment.
It is usually administered three times each week for women or in a single dose in women. Your individual regimen will be determined based on your weight, health condition, symptoms, and response to other treatments. Do not self-medicate or deviate from these instructions to prevent unexpected health problems from occurring.
ZYHCG is administered by injection and is typically given by your health care provider or another health care professional. If you are required to administer your own dosage, be sure you are thoroughly instructed in the correct procedures to ensure correct application. Before using the medicine, observe the included solution to make sure it is not discolored, cloudy, or containing any suspended particles, as these can indicate contamination. Mix the solution with the medication at the proportions indicated by your health care provider. Disinfect the area of application and slowly inject the medication directly into the vein to allow it to dissipate. Always use it directly after mixing the contents and remember to clean the needle to prevent it from becoming contaminated.
Consult your health care provider regularly while undergoing treatment to make sure the medication is having the correct effects. After observing your symptoms and response to the regimen, your health care provider may alter your dosage or frequency of administration until the best results occur. Always follow these instructions and ask your health care provider or pharmacist if you have any questions about the medicine to ensure the correct application.
Some patients using ZYHCG have reported experiencing adverse effects while undergoing treatment. These may be mild or severe and should always be discussed with your health care provider as soon as they occur. It may be necessary to reduce your dosage or frequency of administration to prevent further complications. If more serious health problems are indicated, medical attention may be required.
Adverse effects that may occur are:
- Weakness or fatigue
- Nausea or vomiting
- Irritation, pain, or swelling at the site of application
