GONAL-f (recombinant follitropin alfa for injection) is prescribed to supplement or replace naturally occurring FSH, an essential hormone to treat infertility in both women and men. GONAL-f® has been approved in around 100 countries worldwide for stimulating the growth of ovarian follicles and ovulation in women.

For males, GONAL-f has been approved in more than 80 countries worldwide, including Japan, for gonadal dysfunction associated with absence of sperm in the semen or male hypogonadotropic hypogonadism. In certain markets where GONAL-f is approved for this indication, the therapy needs to be in combination with human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG).

Follicle stimulating hormone is a man-made form of a hormone that occurs naturally in the body. This hormone regulates ovulation, the growth and development of eggs in a woman’s ovaries. Follicle stimulating hormone is used to treat infertility in women who cannot ovulate and do not have primary ovarian failure. Follicle stimulating hormone is also used to stimulate sperm production in men. Follicle stimulating hormone is often used together with another medication called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). Follicle stimulating hormone may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
