Treatment with Generic HCG is also recommended in boys who show symptoms of delayed puberty i.e. delay in the development of secondary sexual characteristics such as hair growth and deepening of voice.

Vitagon Mechanism of Action – How Does Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Work?
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) is a naturally occurring hormone which is responsible for the sexual development in both males and females, along with follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH). These three hormones are commonly used for the treatment of infertility.
HCG mimics the actions of the pituitary hormone, LH, stimulating the production of gonadal steroid hormones by activating the interstitial cells (Leydig cells) of the testis to produce androgens and the corpus luteum of the ovary to produce progesterone. Androgen production in men results in the development of secondary sexual characteristics and may activate the testicular descent when there is no other anatomical obstruction for successful descent into the scrotal sac. This testicular descent is ordinarily reversible when treatment with HCG injections is stopped.
During the normal menstrual cycle, LH along with FSH, results in the development and maturation of the normal ovarian follicle, while the rise in the LH level towards the middle of the cycle results in ovulation. HCG shots can be used as a substitute for LH in this process of ovulation. During a normal pregnancy, HCG secreted by the placenta preserves the corpus luteum after the decline in LH secretion levels, assisting the sustained secretion of estrogen and progesterone and inhibiting menstruation. HCG shots are not known to have any role in fat mobilization, weight loss, appetite or sense of hunger, or body fat distribution.
