Repronex is an injection with the generic name menotropins that combines follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH). These hormones act as a fertility drug to help stimulate the ovaries to produce and mature follicles, which can then release an egg with the help of another hormone, so the drug is often used to treat infertility.
Doctors may prescribe this medicine to women to treat infertility from anovulation, which is the lack of ovulation, when it is not caused by primary ovarian failure. Fertility doctors may also prescribe this medication to aid in in-vitro fertilization and other assisted reproductive technology (ART) programs. In both cases, this fertility drug can help boost ovulation by stimulating the ovaries to produce more follicles.
The medication contains the hormones follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH), both crucial for reproduction. These hormones help stimulate follicles to form and mature to form eggs, and Repronex injections can either help follicles to form when they have not been forming or help more follicles to form. Doctors may then prescribe a human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) injection to help the follicles release an egg, which can then be fertilized naturally or harvested for IVF treatments.
Your fertility doctor will give you instructions on how and when to take injections for IVF treatments or infertility, or you can refer to your product leaflet. Usually for anovulation you will inject 150 IU of Repronex intramuscularly, which is into a muscle, or subcutaneously, which is under the skin, once a day for five days to start. For IVF treatments, you will usually start with 225 IU daily. You should not exceed a dose of 450 IU or inject the drug for longer than twelve days, and you should try to take this medication at the same time each day. Do not use this medication if it is cloudy or contains particles. Once you have prepared a dose of Repronex, use it immediately and properly dispose of any leftover prepared Repronex, needles, syringes, and other used medical supplies. If you miss a dose, do not double dosage and inform your doctor. Your doctor may perform hormone level tests, pregnancy tests, or other laboratory tests during your medication treatments to monitor your condition.

Do not use the drug while pregnant. Researchers do not know if the drug can be passed through breast milk, so always consult your doctor before breastfeeding. Do not use this medicine if you are allergic to any of its ingredients, if you have a pituitary or reproductive organ tumor, if you have enlarged ovaries or an ovarian cyst, if you have abnormal vaginal bleeding, or if you have uncontrolled thyroid, pituitary, or adrenal gland problems. This medication can increase the risk of developing blood clots, lung problems, enlarged ovaries, and ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), and this fertility drug can also increase the chance of multiple births, such as twins, and an ectopic pregnancy, which is a pregnancy outside the womb. Store Repronex between 3 and 25 degrees Celsius, keep this drug away from light and heat, and keep it and any needles out of the reach of children.
Your fertility doctor may prescribe Repronex on its own or in conjunction with IVF treatments. After using this drug, your doctor may tell you to inject a human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) drug to release the eggs from the follicles. You may also use an ovulation test to determine when you are likely ovulating, and the best time to conceive.
Anovulation is the failure of the ovaries to release a mature egg. The main symptom of anovulation is infertility, since if there is no egg released from the ovaries an egg cannot be fertilized by sperm. Other symptoms of anovulation include amenorrhea, which is the lack of menstruation, or oligomenorrhea, which is irregular menstruation. Causes of anovulation include weight loss, excessive exercise, anxiety and stress, certain medications, hormonal imbalances, hyperprolactinemia, primary ovarian failure, and more. Your doctor may diagnose anovulation using blood tests for hormone levels, or they may also perform other tests such as an ultrasound. As long as the cause of anovulation is not primary ovarian failure, fertility drugs can help in most cases, helping a woman with anovulation achieve a successful pregnancy.
