About PREGNYL 5000IU INJECTION

PREGNYL 5000IU INJECTION belongs to the class of sex hormones used in the treatment of female infertility, male hypogonadism and cryptorchidism. Female infertility is when a woman is unable to get pregnant within a year of trying. Male hypogonadism is a condition in which the body does not produce enough hormone 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).

PREGNYL 5000IU INJECTION contains ‘human chorionic gonadotrophin’ used in the treatment of female infertility and male hypogonadism. 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.

PREGNYL 5000IU INJECTION is available in the form of injection. It is usually administered by a healthcare professional. The common side-effects of PREGNYL 5000IU 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 PREGNYL 5000IU 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. It is not recommended for use in pregnant women and should be used with caution in breastfeeding mothers. 

Uses of PREGNYL 5000IU INJECTION

Medicinal Benefits

It is used in treating female infertility in whom, the cause of ovulation problems is a secondary ovarian failure (normal ovaries that don’t function properly). It can also treat male hypogonadism in whom the testes are normal but don’t function properly. It can treat cryptorchidism in boys from age 4 to 9 if there is no structural deformity. However, the descending of testes into the scrotum is usually temporary when PREGNYL 5000IU INJECTION is used.
