About Lupi-HCG HP 5000 Injection
Lupi-HCG HP 5000 Injection belongs to the class of sex hormones used to treat female infertility and male hypogonadism. Female infertility is when a woman is unable to get pregnant within a year of trying. Male hypogonadism is when the body does not produce enough hormones responsible for masculine growth in men. Cryptorchidism is a condition in which testes don’t descend into the scrotum (bag of skin present below the penis).
Lupi-HCG 5000 Injection contains ‘human chorionic gonadotropin and sodium chloride’. It stimulates the production of sex hormones such as testosterone in men and progesterone in women. It can stimulate ovulation (egg production) in women and improve sperm production in men.
Lupi-HCG 5000 Injection is available in the form of injection. It is usually administered by a healthcare professional. The common side-effects of Lupi-HCG 5000 Injection are pain at the injection site, headache, irritability, restlessness, depression, fatigue, oedema (swelling), early puberty and gynecomastia (swelling of breast tissue in men).
Do not take Lupi-HCG 5000 Injection if you are allergic to ‘human chorionic gonadotrophin’ or any other ingredients present in it. It should not be used in patients with conditions such as early puberty, prostatic cancer or other androgen-dependent cancers, unexplained vaginal bleeding, uncontrolled thyroid or adrenal gland dysfunction and ovarian cysts.
