Menopur, Repronex

Human Menopausal Gonadotropin (hMG) is sold under the brand names Menopur and Repronex. These injectable drugs contains approximately equal amounts of FSH and LH, which is extracted and purified from the urine of postmenopausal women who have high levels of these hormones.

How it Works

Both Menopur and Repronex directly stimulate the ovaries to induce ovulation and help the ovaries produce one or more eggs. You may begin hMG on day two or three of your menstrual cycle, and continue using it for seven to 12 days.

The goal is to achieve one or more mature follicles and an appropriate estrogen level so that ovulation can be triggered by an hCG injection.

Dosage

Most fertility patients start with an hMG dose of 75 to 150 units of hMG and continue to use it daily over a period of seven to 12 days.

Menopur can be mixed needle-free with a Q-Cap ™ and injected subcutaneously with a needle and syringe.

Repronex can be mixed needle-free with a Q-Cap ™ and injected subcutaneously or via intramuscular injection with a needle and syringe.

Costs

hMG costs are similar to gonadotropins: $1,500 to $5,000 per cycle.
