Interactions of Human chorionic gonadotrophin with other medicines have not been investigated; interactions with commonly used medicinal products cannot be excluded. Following administration, Human chorionic gonadotrophin may interfere for up to 10 days with the immunological determination of serum/urinary human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), leading to a false positive pregnancy test.
