GONAL F (FOLLITROPIN ALPHA)

Gonal F Description

There are many reasons for infertility in a woman or man, including medical conditions or abnormalities, irregular periods, age, or low sperm count. Once you undergo an examination or testing by your doctor and have discovered the reason for not being able to become pregnant, ask about Gonal F injections.

You or your partner will undergo a series of injections of Follitropin Alpha, a follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) administered by your doctor or you may be shown how, where, and when to inject Gonal F so you can do it at home. This infertility process usually involves that you have other hormone treatments before and/or after treatment with Gonal F.

How Gonal F Works for Either Male or Female Partner

Follicle stimulating hormone is one of the essential hormones for proper development during puberty and for the normal functions of a woman’s ovaries and a man’s testes. As a woman, you need this hormone to stimulate the growth of ovarian follicles in the ovaries; these are fluid filled sacs that hold immature eggs.

Once an egg has matured, it is released from the ovary in hopes of fertilization. For men with a low sperm count, Gonal F will act on certain supporting cells of the testes in order to encourage sperm production in hopes of gaining more numbers to fertilize an egg successfully.

Conditions Treated by Gonal F

Many couples nowadays are postponing the start of a family until they are financially stable, have their career on track, or have other responsibilities that they must look after first. Unfortunately, time marches on and your body begins to cut down on how many eggs you have or sperm you make. If this happens, injections of Gonal F can help with this hurdle. However, this is not a guaranteed solution to infertility and it can be draining on you, your partner, and your bank account to undergo any treatment more than once or twice. The dose you will be prescribed is dependent upon which partner requires the help of Gonal F and the reason for infertility.

Before Administering Gonal F

For women, a doctor will recommend a pregnancy test to prove you are not expecting before treatment starts. To determine if Gonal F is safe for you to use, tell your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any OTC or Rx drugs you currently take, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements.

Gonal F Precautions and Proper Use

Do not change your dosage of Gonal F unless under the supervision of your doctor or fertility specialist. You may have an increased risk of a multiple birth as a result of Gonal F injections. You should not start new or stop current medications while injecting Gonal F as this could affect how other meds will work or increase your risk of side effects. Ask your doctor or pharmacist about the safest way to dispose of empty vials, needles, and syringes from the Gonal F injections.
