Frequently asked questions for Menotrophin


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

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 Menotrophin?

Ideally, you should try not to miss a dose of Menotrophin. 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 Menotrophin?

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. In addition, this medicine may increase the likelihood of conditions like ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) and multiple pregnancy.
