Drug: Pure F.S.H. (Urofollitrophin: Metrodin)

In what conditions is there an imbalance in F.S.H.

Hormone studies may indicate that there is an imbalance in the output of your pituitary hormones, with an excessively high L.H. and normal F.S.H. level. This disproportionately high L.H. to F.S.H. ratio may be associated with oligomenorrhoea or even amenorrhoea. The commonest condition in which it occurs is polycystic ovarian disease.

When is pure F.S.H prescribed

The obvious treatment to restore the hormone balance to normal is to give additional F.S.H. In nearly one third of cases, clomiphene serves to stimulate the pituitary gland to release its own stores of F.S.H., and this may be all the treatment that is required. However, should this fail, your specialist may decide that treatment with Metrodin is indicated.

How is pure F.S.H. administered

Metrodin consists of pure F.S.H. - each ampoule containing 75 international units of F.S.H. alone. The pre-treatment work up and monitoring are identical to those described for Pergonal. The administration of Metrodin is also by injection, being given on alternate days until an adequate response has been observed.
