My doctor recommends this drug.
Although Novarel is not indicated for use ... to increase the height... I think Novarel can cause a rapid increase in height in some cases ... so doctors are probably taking advantage of this side effect.
Novarel (Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG)) is a hormone that supports the normal development of an egg in a woman's ovary, and stimulates the release of the egg during ovulation.
HCG is used to cause ovulation and to treat infertility in women, and to increase sperm count in men. HCG is also used in young boys when their testicles have not dropped down into the scrotum normally. This can be caused by a pituitary gland disorder.
