Gonal F Description
Gonal F is an injection

Gonal F (Follitropin Alfa) is used to treat fertility problems and is commonly prescribed in conjunction with another hormone hCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin).

 

Gonal F stimulates ovarian follicular growth in women who do not have primary ovarian failure. FSH is the primary hormone responsible for follicular recruitment and development. To complete follicular maturation and effect ovulation in the absence of an endogenous luteinizing hormone (LH) surge, human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is given when monitoring of the patient indicates that sufficient follicular development has occurred. There may be a degree of inter patient variability in response to FSH administration, with lack of response to FSH in some patients.

Gonal F - What's Included
Gonal F medication is supplied in 3 pen sizes:900iu/450iu/300iu. Each order comes with the Gonal F pen (delivery mechanism).

Gonal F Uses and Side Effects
Gonal F Uses & Indications:
Gonal F is used in women who are suffering from ovulation related infertility. Gonal F is an FSH hormone that encourages the ovaries to produce eggs. While Gonal F can be used by itself, it is is normally prescribed alongside an HCG drug. HCG drugs help to ensure that the eggs grow properly and mature before being released. A combination of FSH and HCG hormones drastically increases chances of conceiving.
Gonal F Side Effects:
Common Gonal F side effects include: Headache, nausea, vomiting, mild stomach/abdominal pain, bloating, redness/pain at the injection site, or breast tenderness/pain.
Serious GonalF side effects that require medical attention include: Unusual bleeding from the vagina/uterus, pain/redness/swelling of the calf muscles, cold/numb/pale skin of the arms/legs/hands/feet, swelling of ankles/hands/feet. If you experience  weakness on one side of the body, slurred speech, vision changes, sudden severe headache, chest pain, shortness of breath or symptoms of OHSS then get urgent medical attention. Symptoms of OHSS include severe pain/swelling in the pelvic region, severe nausea/vomiting, sudden/rapid weight gain, or change in the amount of urine.
If you develop a rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness or have trouble breathing it might be caused by a severe allergic reaction, seek urgent medical attention.
