Full strength HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) or Ovidrel is diluted/ compounded to a specific strength according to physician’s instructions. Many different strengths and volumes are used. HCG is very similar in structure to the hormone LH (luteinizing hormone). Some fertility stimulation protocols utilize a combination of FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) and LH during ART (Assisted Reproductive Technology) cycles.
