3 About The Drugs

Both Menopur and Bravelle contain follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone activity. This means, they both help to stimulate a woman’s ovaries and help them to make eggs successfully.

Menopur helps with the development of multiple follicles for patients that are going through an assisted reproductive technology (ART) program.

Bravelle is used to induce ovulation in patients suffering from infertility

Bravelle is used in conjunction with hCG, and is used for inducing ovulation in patients who have received previous pituitary suppression, and to help the development of multiple follicles as a part of ART cycles in patients who had previously received pituitary suppression.
