Bravelle is a highly purified human-derived follicle stimulation hormone (hFSH) given via injection. Bravelle stimulates the ovaries to produce eggs. Your physician will prescribe Bravelle if you’re going through an artificial insemination cycle or if you are undergoing in vitro fertilization.
Cetrotide (Cetrorelix Acetate Injection)
Cetrotide is a gonadotropin releasing hormone antagonist. While undergoing IVF, your ovaries will be stimulated with FSH in order to stimulate your follicles to grow. During these processes, your physician will be controlling your ovulation. Cetrotide is used to control ovulation by preventing a premature LH surge, therefore preventing ovulation on your own. Your doctor will trigger your ovulation with HCG. Afterwards egg retrieval will be performed.
Clomiphene citrate tablets are taken orally and are prescribed to stimulate the ovary to increase egg production. It is used with timed intercourse or with artificial insemination.
Crinone (Progesterone Gel)
Crinone is a gel containing micronized progesterone that is administered vaginally. It provides progesterone support for women who have a progesterone deficiency and who are undergoing fertility treatment.
Endometrin (Progesterone Gel)
Endometrin is a progesterone vaginal insert often prescribed for infertile women during the luteal phase of an Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) treatment. Endometrin is indicated to support embryo implantation and early pregnancy by supplementing the needed progesterone support.
Follistim is a follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) medication. Follistim is an injectable medication used to stimulate healthy ovaries to produce eggs. Your doctor will prescribe Follistim to be used either with artificial insemination or with Assisted Reproductive Technologies. You will be monitored with vaginal ultrasounds during your course of medication for the purpose of determining how many follicles are growing and how they’re maturing.
Ganirelix Acetate/Antagon Injection
Ganirelix is a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonist. It is used to suppress premature luteininzing hormone (LH) surges in women during assisted reproductive technology (ART) treatment.

Gonal-F is a pure human FSH that is manufactured by recombinant DNA technology. It is prescribed to supplement or replace naturally occurring follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). This medication stimulates the ovaries to produce eggs.
The Gonal–f® RFF Pen is for women seeking pregnancy and is used to help ovaries make more eggs. It is used in Ovulation Induction (OI) and in vitro fertilization (IVF), to supplement a woman’s naturally occurring follicle stimulating hormone (FSH).
HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin)/Novarel/Pregnyl
These medications are injectable and are used to trigger ovulation. They would be prescribed by your doctor once it is determined that the follicles/eggs are mature and ready for ovulation.

Leuprolide acetate is given via injections and inhibits the secretion of gonadotropins when given continuously and in therapeutic doses. This medication is used to achieve ovarian suppression. Once the ovaries are suppressed, your physician will prescribe an FSH in order to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple follicles. Leuprolide acetate is used when going through ART.
Menopur is a purified preparation of human menopausal gonadotropin (hMG). Menopur is a preparation of naturally derived gonadotropins that has undergone an exacting purification process. It contains an equal amount of 75 IU follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and 75 IU leutinizing hormone (LH). This medication stimulates the ovaries to produce eggs.
