What does the hCG hormone produce in women?

hCG is a hormone that is administered exogenously to women in assisted reproduction techniques, as the final step in ovarian stimulation. This is because hCG has the following effects:

  • Final maturation of the follicles and degradation of the follicular wall.
  • Ovulation.
  • Formation of the corpus luteum.

An important aspect to keep in mind is that ovulation will occur 36-40 hours after the administration of hCG. In this way, it will be necessary to schedule the follicular puncture of in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments before this time has elapsed.
