Menodac 75 IU Injection or hMG for short is used to treat infertility in women. It is also known by the name of Menotropin. It is a hormonally active drug that stimulates the production of eggs in the ovaries in cases of women who suffer from ovarian failure. Menodac 75 IU Injection is extricated from the urine of postmenopausal females. The urine of a postmenopausal woman contains high levels of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), lutropin hormone (LH) and also gonadotropins. Menodac 75 IU Injection is injected into the body through the muscle.
Using Menodac 75 IU Injection may show these side effects; headaches, mood swings, weakness, weight gain, swelling in the area where the injection has been given, enlargement of the breasts and also breast tenderness. The other most common effect of using Menodac 75 IU Injection is pain in the abdominal area caused by ovarian hyperstimulation (OHSS). This happens when too many eggs are produced and the ovaries subsequently swell up. The other risk that may arise from taking these shots is that of conceiving twins in case you were not planning for it. Before taking this medication it is advised that you consult and inform your doctor if you have any of the conditions mentioned below:
