Human Menopausal Gonadotropin

10 AMPOULES containing 1 mL

Human Menopausal Gonadotropin is a hormone of pituitary originally obtained from the urine of postmenopausal women now produced synthetically; used to induce ovulation.

Use in females—HMG is primarily responsible for stimulating growth of the ovarian follicle, which includes the developing egg, the cells surrounding the egg that produce the hormones needed to support a pregnancy, and the fluid around the egg. As the follicle grows, an increasing amount of the hormone estrogen is produced by the cells in the follicle and released into the bloodstream. Estrogen causes the endometrium (lining of the uterus) to thicken before ovulation occurs. The higher blood levels of estrogen will also tell the hypothalamus and pituitary gland to slow the production and release of FSH.
