How Does A Gonadotropin Work

Gonadotropins work to stimulate ovulation in the same way that your body's hormones should. The injection of high levels of FSH (and sometimes also LH) into your bloodstream stimulates your ovaries to develop multiple follicles and eggs. By increasing the number of developing eggs, you maximize your chances of becoming pregnant.

Once your doctor determines that the eggs are ready, you will receive an injection of a different medication called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). This injection of hCG signals your body to release the developed eggs from your ovaries.

Depending on what form of fertility treatment you are doing, you will proceed from here. Your doctor may simply recommend that you and your partner have intercourse. In other situations, you will be scheduled for an insemination or egg retrieval.
