Pharmacy Update: HCG Access

Feb 4, 2021

We have been made aware from our suppliers that there is a nation-wide backorder on Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) — both compounded and name brand.

We wanted to let you know that Defy Medical continues to have access to hCG through our pharmacy partners. We are not expecting a disruption in our supply or to have order volume limitations (beyond normal BUD restrictions or as required by state law.)

Why is there an HCG Shortage?

The nation-wide backorder is a result of reduced supply of the raw materials needed to make hCG. This supply chain issue is due to Covid-19 impacts and should resolve itself with time.

However, in the short term, many compounding pharmacies have had to place hCG on backorder until raw materials are available.

How is Defy Medical Responding to the HCG Shortage?

At this time, Defy has access to an ample reserve of hCG through our pharmacy partners. Defy should remain unaffected by the current supply chain disruption.

Current and new patients can continue to order hCG through Defy Medical under our standard patient protocols. Our goal is to ensure the good health of the HRT community by working to maintain access to hCG.

As the situation evolves, we will continue to provide updates on HCG availability. Current patients can place their orders through their patient portal at
