What is the mechanism of action of hCG?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 02/15/2022

The purpose of hCG hormone is to exert its function on the follicle, inducing its maturation. It also participates in the formation and maintenance of the corpus luteum in the ovary.

Another mechanism of action of hCG is to intervene in spermatogenesis, i.e. in the production of spermatozoa in men.
