Hormonal stimulation – medication overview

Different substances are used to mimic the natural cycle depending on the cause of infertility and the stage of follicular maturation.

Did you know…?

Gonadotropins differ in their means of production:

Urinary gonadotropins
The urine of women after menopause is collected and processed accordingly. LH and FSH are present in the urine as a mixture. If this combination is left in the preparation process, it is called human menopausal gonadotropin (hMG).

Recombinant gonadotropins
Gonadotropins produced using state-of-the-art biotechnological techniques with a protein purity of over 99%.

What is a stimulation protocol?

As the individual dosages, drug compositions and time frames vary depending on the patient, the attending physician prepares a document known as a stimulation protocol. This shows the medications to be taken and the corresponding timings and makes planning easier. It will also help you to understand the entire course of treatment.
