Menotropin is a medication that contains follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH), which are hormones produced by the pituitary gland. Menotropin is used to stimulate ovulation in women who have difficulty conceiving due to problems with their ovaries or pituitary gland.
It can also be used in assisted reproductive technologies such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) to help induce ovulation and increase the chances of pregnancy.
Menotropin is usually given by injection and is available under different brand names. It is important to use Menotropin under the guidance of a qualified healthcare provider who can monitor its effects and adjust the dosage as needed.
Like any medication, Menotropin can cause side effects, including headache, nausea, abdominal pain, and ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), which is a potentially serious condition that can occur when the ovaries become overstimulated.
