We wanted to talk to you about Gonal-F which is a commonly prescribed medication for those with fertility issues (male and female). Our main topic about this medication is why it is prescribed and other important information that you should know about it.
Why You Can Get Prescribed Gonal-F
Gonal-F is a naturally occurring hormone used to stimulate egg (follicle) development and maturity. Gonal-F is used when a woman desires to become pregnant and her ovaries can produce an egg (follicle) but her hormonal stimulation is not sufficient for egg (follicle) maturity.
This medication is often prescribed in combination with another hormone (hCG) to assist in the egg growth and maturation process. Therefore, Gonal-F will help women produce more viable and healthy eggs. This medication is not recommended for women with ovarian failure.
Gonal-F is not just prescribed to women. It’s also prescribed to men.
For men, Gonal-F is used to increase sperm count.
