About GONAL F INJECTION 75I.U

GONAL F INJECTION 75I.U belongs to a group of medicines called ‘fertility drugs' used to treat infertility. It belongs to the family of hormones called ‘gonadotropins’ that are involved in reproduction and fertility. When a woman cannot become pregnant within a year of trying, then the condition is called female infertility. If a woman gets pregnant but experiences miscarriages or stillbirths, it is also included in infertility.

GONAL F INJECTION 75I.U contains ‘Follitropin alfa’ which acts by developing and ripening several follicles (containing an egg) and inducing the ovulation procedure (releasing an egg from the ovary). An egg must be released from the ovary to get fertilised by a sperm cell to get pregnant. In infertile men, GONAL F INJECTION 75I.U is used along with other medicines to help produce sperm.

You should use this medicine exactly as prescribed by your doctor. The common side-effects of GONAL F INJECTION 75I.U are headache, ovarian cysts (sacks of fluid within the ovaries), vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal cramps, and local reactions at the injection site. These side-effects are usually mild and temporary. However, inform your doctor immediately if any of these side-effects persist or get worse.

Inform your doctor if you have a known allergy to Follitropin alfa or any contents present in it. GONAL F INJECTION 75I.U is not recommended for women with ovarian cysts, unexplained vaginal bleeding, cancer in ovaries, womb, or breasts have a tumour. And GONAL F INJECTION 75I.U is not recommended for males with damaged testicles that cannot be healed. GONAL F INJECTION 75I.U is not recommended for use in children. Do not use GONAL F INJECTION 75I.U if you are a pregnant and breastfeeding woman. GONAL F INJECTION 75I.U may interact with alcohol and worsen your health condition.

In-Depth Precautions and Warning

Drug Warning

GONAL F INJECTION 75I.U may cause ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), a condition in which ovarian follicles develop too much and become large cysts. If you notice abnormal pain, rapid weight gain, difficulty breathing, or feel sick, inform your doctor immediately as it may be a sign of OHSS. GONAL F INJECTION 75I.U may increase the risk of multiple pregnancies (pregnant with more than one child at the same time), birth defects, ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy outside the womb), and miscarriage. So, your doctor may advise you to undergo certain blood tests and ultrasound throughout the treatment to identify if you have developed any above-mentioned risks associated with GONAL F INJECTION 75I.U. Before taking GONAL F INJECTION 75I.U, inform your doctor if you have a history of blood clots in the legs, lungs, or heart attack. GONAL F INJECTION 75I.U may increase the risk of blood clots and worsen your existing clots. Also, inform your doctor if you have undergone multiple regimens for infertility treatment, as GONAL F INJECTION 75I.U may increase the risk of tumours in the ovaries and other sex organs. Inform your doctor immediately if your skin becomes fragile and easily blistered, or if you have the stomach, arm, or leg pain after taking GONAL F INJECTION 75I.U.
