Each vial/ampule contains 75iu of equal amounts of human FSH (follicle stimulation hormone) and LH (luetinizing hormone)


Promotes both growth and maturation of developing follicles.

Side Effects

With careful monitoring of blood hormone levels and follicle growth by ultrasound, side effects are minimal but can include the following:

  • Headache
  • Mild to moderate ovarian enlargement
  • Abdominal bloating or discomfort
  • Temporary weight gain
  • Nausea
  • Insomnia
  • Changes in mood

A rare but potential side effect is known as Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS). It is characterized by sudden ovarian enlargement, with accumulation of fluid in the abdomen. Patients may experience abdominal enlargement, pelvic pain, nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath, and decreased urine output. In some cases, hospitalization may be necessary. Careful monitoring the response to the medications generally prevents OHSS.
