Abstract:   (2081 Views)
We treated ten men and ten women suffering from hypogonadotropic hypogonadism with LHRH. Our method of treatment differed 'from others in that a mini pump was not available at the onset of the study. Nine women were given injections via a heparinized indwelling catheter every 120 minutes for 14 days, i,e. the proliferative phase. After ovulation, 3000 IU human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) was administered every two days. A minipump was used for only one patient. From among these nine female patients, three pregnancies occurred, In male subjects, 50-100 micrograms LHRH was subcutaneously self-administered twice daily, and 5000 IU HCG was given intramuscularly twice weekly. With this treatment, secondary sexual characteristics appeared after a few months, including nocturnal ejaculation, growth of testes, and elevation of serum testosterone levels.
