An infertility organazation has asked me to help one of it's members overseas in my countrey by giving the HCG hormone injection for on of their clients. I am an American nurse currently on vacation. I was told that this is the woman's first round of treatment and that the dose is 10,000 units - this seemed a little steep to me - so I checked online and found out that most such treatments go at 5,000 units at a time. Now this is the woman's first time on the treatment and therfore I see no possible reason as to why this dose is so high? Secondly, Can any one tell me which IM landmark is preferable to inject in?
