Eema R Fsh contains a medicine called Follitropin alfa, a type of Follicle Stimulating Hormone produced naturally by the body. It is used in women who have a problem with ovulation. It works by stimulating the growth of follicles (which contain eggs) in the ovary, which helps in the release of a properly developed egg, at the time of ovulation. 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 are infertile due to lack of certain hormones and could not produce enough sperm cells.
