Hello,

From the history given I understand that you are undergoing treatment of infertility associated with hyperprolactinemia (elevated blood prolactin) and hypogonadism (decreased male sex hormone 'testosterone') Koragon hormone (human chorionic gonadotropin) injection is used in the treatment of male hypogonadism to increase the testosterone level.

Generally, it is well tolerated by most of the men however its common side effects include injection site pain, headache, fatigue, acne, sweating, deepening of the voice and depression.

If these bother you or appear serious, let your doctor know.

It is the correct treatment and continues to take injection koragan as prescribed by your doctor to overcome the issue of infertility.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Mohammed Taher Ali, General & Family Physician
