Pregnyl (HCG)

HCG is a hormone found in the female body during the first months of pregnancy (it is produced in the placenta). It is in fact the pregnancy indicator utilized by pregnancy test kits, it is not found in the body at any other time. Blood levels of HCG will become detectable as soon as 7 days after ovulation. The level will rise uniformly, reaching a peak at around 2 to 3 months into gestation. Beyond this point, the HCG level will decrease gradually until birth. As a prescription drug, Pregnyl provides some interesting benefits. Pregnyl is FDA approved for the treatment of undescended testicles in young boys, hypogonadism (underproduction of testosterone) and as a fertility medication used to induce ovulation in women. When Pregnyl is manufactured for human medical use, the hormone is derived from humans. Although products of biological origin can sometimes be of concern, there is little evidence regarding pathogen or sterility problems with HCG. This is because Pregnyl HCG is derived very differently than most biological products.
