Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) Fertigyn HP 5000 is a hormone that is produced by the placenta during pregnancy, and then is excreted unchanged in the urine, from where it is extracted and cleaned to produce drugs. Chorionic gonadotropin has the same biological effects as luteinizing hormone (gonadotropic hormone or gonadotropin), which is formed in the pituitary gland.
Effects of gonadotropin Fertigyn HP 5000
- Strengthens the development of sexual organs and secondary sexual characteristics.
- Stimulates the synthesis of sex hormones in the testicles, therefore, has the same range of effects as testosterone.
- In women, it stimulates the production of progesterone by the corpus luteum, provokes ovulation, and supports the development of the placenta.
- Stimulates spermatogenesis.
How does Fertigyn HP 5000 work?
HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) is a water-soluble glycoprotein derived from the urine of pregnant women. HCG consists of two units of alpha and beta blocks. One injection of hCG causes ovulation between 38 and 40 hours. HCG is an analogue of luteinizing hormone (LH). Luteinizing hormone together with follicle-stimulating hormone plays an important role in the development and maturation of the normal ovarian follicle in the middle of the LH cycle initiates ovulation. HCG plays the same role of LH in the body and stimulates the process of ovulation in an unborn woman. HCG stimulates the corpus luteum of the ovaries to produce progesterone.
In men, it stimulates testosterone production and increases the sperm count in men. HCG acts on the interstitial cells of the testicle, which leads to the production of androgens.
