MENOPUR® / REPRONEX® (HP-hMG)
MENOPUR® (menotropin) is a fertility treatment for women who have trouble ovulating. It contains equal amounts of two human-derived hormones: Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) which stimulates egg production in the ovaries, and hCG-driven Luteinizing Hormone (LH) which helps the eggs mature and release (ovulation). If the body does not produce enough FSH or if it releases FSH and LH in improper balance, MENOPUR can compensate.
MENOPUR is used for the development of multiple follicles and pregnancy. It can also be used with in vitro fertilization or other assisted reproduction techniques.
BRAVELLE® (urofollitropin) is a treatment for infertility in women with ovulation problems. It contains Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH), a human-derived hormone that stimulates eggs to develop in the ovaries. If the body does not produce enough FSH, BRAVELLE can be used to make up for the shortage.
BRAVELLE is used to stimulate the ovaries to develop multiple follicles for assisted reproduction.
It is also used for follicle stimulation in ovulation induction, intrauterine insemination, embryo transfer and in vitro fertilization.
BRAVELLE has been widely studied for safety and effectiveness.
ENDOMETRIN® (progesterone) is a fertility treatment used for progesterone supplementation in women undergoing in-vitro fertilization. Progesterone is one of the hormones essential for helping a woman become pregnant and stay pregnant.
ENDOMETRIN is an effervescent vaginal tablet that allows progesterone to be absorbed through the vaginal tissue. This helps prepare the uterine lining so that it’s ready to receive and nourish a fertilized egg.
DECAPEPTYL® (triptorelin acetat)
DECAPEPTYL® (triptorelin) is a fertility treatment used to prevent premature ovulation in women undergoing assisted reproductive technology. Premature ovulation (release of the egg) occurs when Luteinizing Hormone (LH) levels are elevated and this can reduce the chances of getting pregnant.
DECAPEPTYL reduces premature ovulation by downregulating LH and preventing premature LH surges.
LUTREPULSE (gonadorelin acetate) is indicated for the induction of ovulation in women with primary hypothalamic amenorrhea and mimics a more natural pulsatile cycle of LH-RH.
LUTREPULSE is intended to initiate events including the production of reproductive hormones (e.g., estrogens and progesterone).
The diagnosis of hypothalamic amenorrhea or hypogonadism is based on the exclusion of other causes of the dysfunction.
hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin)
hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) is a fertility treatment for women who do not ovulate. As the name suggests, it is a human-derived hormone.
hCG is indicated for the induction of ovulation and pregnancy, and it is used following treatment with other hormones for follicular stimulation and development. Once the lead follicle is large enough due to the initial treatment, hCG’s strong hormonal activity is used to trigger ovulation (release of the egg).
