Ovidac 5000 iu (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin-HCG) is a hormone that supports the normal development of an egg in a woman's ovary and stimulates the release of the egg during ovulation. Ovidac 5000 iu (human chorionic gonadotropin) is used to cause ovulation and to treat infertility in women and to increase sperm count in men. Ovidac 5000 iu (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin-HCG) is also used in children when their testicles have not fallen into the scrotum normally. This can be caused by a pituitary gland disorder. Ovidac 5000 iu (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin-HCG) can also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.
How Ovidac 5000 iu treats problems
Chorion (human chorionic gonadotropin (hcg)) is a glycoprotein that dissolves in water. It is available in the urine of pregnant women. It is made up of two subunits, namely, beta and alpha subunits. A single injection of the hormone (chorionic chorionic gonadotropin (hcg)) activates ovulation over a 38-40 hour interval. The action of the chorion (human chorionic gonadotropin (hcg)) is similar to that of the luteinizing hormone (lh). Together with the follicle-stimulating hormone (fsh), lh influences the process of oogenesis. Lh also starts the ovulation process in the middle of your cycle. The role of the chorion (human chorionic gonadotropin (hcg)) in the body is similar to that of lh, i.e. the stimulation of ovulation in women who have infertility problems. Activates the production of progesterone hormone by the corpus luteum in the ovaries. In men, it triggers the secretion of testosterone hormone and also increases sperm count. Chorion (human chorionic gonadotropin (hcg)) influences the interstitial cells in the testes to produce androgens.
For what conditions is Ovidac 5000 iu used?
Hormone Ovidac 5000 iu is used in the following conditions:
• Treating infertility in women.
• Increase the sperm count in men.
