FAQs

Q. What is Grafova and what it is used for?

Grafova contains an active ingredient called Menotrophin. Menotrophin is a mixture of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH). It is used to treat infertility in women, who face a problem with ovulation. It works by helping follicles (which contains egg) to mature in the ovaries, resulting in the release of a properly developed egg. It is also used in assisted reproductive technology procedures (ART) such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF), which help women to become pregnant. It may also be used in adult men, who have low sperm cell count, due to lack of certain hormones.

Q. How and in what dose can it be used?

It is given as an injection into a muscle or under the skin. Always take this medicine as prescribed by your doctor. Your doctor might decide the dose based on your gender and the condition for which treatment is being given. In women, treatment duration depends on the ovarian response, for which constant monitoring is done by the doctor.

Q. What if I miss a dose of Grafova?

Ideally, you should try not to miss a dose of Grafova. However, please talk to your doctor as soon as you remember that you have missed a dose.

Q. What are the side effects of using Grafova?

The common side effects are pain and swelling at injection site, headache, nausea, vomiting, and stomach pain. If any of these side effects bother you, please consult with your doctor.
