Gonadotrophins are a category of IVF medications that include either a lutenizing hormone (LH), a follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), or both. Both types of hormones are used to stimulate the ovaries to produce mature eggs.
Common brand name gonadotrophins include Bravelle 75 IU, Follitism/Puregon 900 IU, Repronex 75 IU, Menopur 75 IU, and Pregnyl HCG 1000 IU Injection, all of which are available through an online fertility pharmacy.
Drugs containing the FSH hormone are administered as a course of injections over about 12 days. Most often, gonadotrophins are used for women who have polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and haven’t succeeded with other treatments for IVF. It is also prescribed to women who have trouble producing enough FSH and LH on their own — both are essential for successful ovulation.
Once the eggs are released, you may or may not need to take an IVF medication with human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG), which helps make sure you release enough progesterone from the ovaries. This may also be administered by injection.
hCG and LH are similar hormones and cause the same effect on the ovaries — egg maturation and release.
Unlike many other fertility drugs, gonadotrophins can also help men who suffer from a hormonal imbalance resulting in poor sperm quality, poor motility, or low sperm count.
