Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
HUCOG contains the hormone HCG - human chorionic gonadotropin.
The injection you received is HCG only, but HP - meaning highly purified.
There is no difference, as such, and it is the same hormone.
So do not worry.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Take care.

Respected Sir, My wife has been operated on Nov 2010 because of ectopic pregnancy and before this she had 2 abortions, now after so many days she has become pregnent and her last Menstural Period was on 05-10-2012 and the doctor has made us to do 3 times pregnancy test and 3 times we got postive. With the above date now 7th week is running and the doctor has prescribed and injected two FERTIGYN HP 5000 IU injections, one on 17-11-2012 and another on 19-11-2012. But I collected information about this injection from the internet I got the information that Although Pregnyl (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG)) can help you become pregnant, this medication is in the FDA pregnancy category X. This means that using the medication once you are pregnant can cause birth defects in the baby. Do not use this medication if you are pregnant. Tell your doctor right away if you become pregnant during treatment. Now i want to known that the injection given to my wife is safe baby or not.Please do needful Thanking you Sir/ Madam Your Sincerely
