If you have difficulty ovulating or have become infertile due to a cervical problem, then you may feel as if the possibility of conceiving a baby on your own isn’t likely. However, fertility treatments make it possible for women with these issues to get pregnant. There are several infertility medicines that help in stimulating egg follicles in women who are unable to ovulate despite having healthy ovaries. One of the most commonly administered and effective infertility medications is Repronex 75 IU. This medication contains a mixture of FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) and LH (Luteinizing Hormone), hormones extracted from the urine of menopausal women. Physicians will schedule regular ultrasound appointments to check the quality and number of eggs being released while infertile women are taking Repronex.
Repronex 75 IU is an injectable medicine, administered intramuscularly or subcutaneously depending on the physician’s recommendation. It is used to stimulate the ovulation in women who are unable to produce eggs on their own with the exception being women diagnosed with primary ovarian failure. The medicine is available in vials as a lyophilized, sterile, white powder. Each vial of medicine contains 75 IU of a powdered form of the medicine to be mixed with a sterile liquid solution. The medicine needs to be refrigerated or stored at normal room temperature in dry conditions.
Side-Effects of Repronex 75 IU
The medicine may lead to certain side effects; therefore, it is important to consult a physician before starting the infertility drug. A physician will also monitor your condition over the course of your IVF treatment cycle. Common Repronex side effects include headaches, diarrhea, abdominal pain, rashes, joint pain, irritation, dizziness and swelling at the injection site. Administer the medicine as directed and in the case of severe allergic reaction, immediately seek out emergency care.
You should not take the medicine if you have high FSH hormone levels, a pituitary tumor, adrenal dysfunction, uncontrolled thyroid, abdominal bleeding, ovarian cysts, or any enlargement due to any other reason besides polycystic ovary syndrome.If you are pregnant or have hypersensitivity to menotropins, you should avoid Repronex 75 IU.
In rare cases, the use of Repronex leads to Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome, a condition which can cause long-lasting effects. In case OHSS occurs, stop the treatment immediately.
