Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG)

This is the ultimate injectable treatment drug. It is administered at a specific time when ovarian follicular maturation is satisfactory since this drug induces ovulation 32-36 hours after its administration, and then egg collection will take place. These drugs are marketed as solution for injection or powder mixed with a special solvent or in a pen syringe under the names Ovitrelle, Pregnyl, and Profasi.
