Do not deviate from these instructions or self-medicate as this can cause severe and unexpected health problems.
Uses of Ovidac HCG
- Ovidac HCG activates steroidogenesis in the gonads through a biological process resembling "LH" (luteinising hormone).
The process is identical to the interstitial cell stimulating hormone. In males it assists in the production of testosterone and in females the production of estrogens.
– Hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism. Some patients who were suffering from idiopathic dysspermias have positively responded to a treatment with this medicine.
– Delayed puberty which is regularly associated with an insufficient function of the gonadotrophic pituitary glands.
– Cryptorchidism, (not the one that is triggered by an abnormal anatomical obstruction).
Side Effects of Ovidac HCG
Side effects that may occur are:
- Drowsiness or fatigue
- Nausea or vomiting
- Irritation, pain, or bruising at the site of injection
More serious side effects requiring medical assistance include:
- Unusual weight gain or swelling
- Urinary retention

As with any treatment, the use of HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) can cause side effects in some patients.
