My mom used this and on her second cycle on it, she conceived me (1986). It was known as "Pergonal" back in the day, but since the 80s it's been reformulated. She said Clomid didn't do anything and she wonders why it's still prescribed.
I guess that's why everything isn't for everyone. I used Gonal F and I only had 1 follicle progress over 18mm the others were a little behind. The stimulation wasn't the best for me it resulted in 4 retrieved 3 matured 1 fertilized. I'm 33 no know fertility issues, male factor issues. I can say it's easy to use and no pain. I had a really weird cycle I was suppressed for 3 months as well.
My first full treatment cycle we paired Letrazole with Gonal, and neither did anything for me at all. I only had one mature follicle (which I was basically doing on my own, only later in the cycle). However, we believe the trigger shot they gave me forced ovulation which wasn't happening for me before, and I was able to get pregnant on this cycle because of the trigger shot. The Letrazole was much milder than Clomid, and I barely had side effects. I had no side effects from Gonal other than some bloating, and the injection did not hurt at all.
Did what it was supposed to.
Good. Did it's job in making my body develop multiple follicles for egg retrieval for IVF
No side effects
Very effective, I never expierenced any side effects.
Very easy to measure and use. The negative is that it has to be injected into your subcutaneous tissue in your stomach.
Effective. Ivf cycle worked on 1st try.
Very effective, my body over stimulated and Dr. Summers lowered the dose. No negative comments about this medication.
I used this during my first (and only) IVF cycle and I now how twin boys
It worked for me for IVF for grow a decent amount of follicles for retrieval.
We are pregnant with twins, it was effective.
One cycle resulting in a pregnancy
Crampy, but made beautiful eggs in the end
So far so good!
Gonal-f was very effective in ovarian stimulation
It was effective, no negatives
Had strong hormonal effects
It has been really effective in getting multiple follicles to grow for me.
It was a little overeffective as I developed OHSS after the retrieval
I did not have any negative effects on any of my medication. I did however almost become over stimulated and have to lower my dose, which my doctor did.
The drug was effect. It made me extremely tired and groggy when I took it.
well tolerated and efficacious
It has been effective. I've felt no side effects.
Got me pregnant both times I used it!
Got me pregnant both times I used it!
Did the trick but unsure if it compromises egg quality
Unclear - we start our fresh cycle next week so haven't taken it yet.
They dis their job
It worked-very expensive
It was used to stimulate my ovaries, but I was not a great responder to it.
It comes in a very easy to use dosing pen and I didn't really notice any side effects personally.
It worked for me. Besides the obvious bloating and soreness from my ovaries being so enlarged (which you will probably get with any medication like this), I didn't have any side effects.
It worked great for me
Okay. So definitely emotional. And my ovaries felt HUGE! But it felt like it was working, so no complaints.
I got BFP using Gonal-F injections, HCG trigger, and IUI. It really works!!
Tried Clomid with no luck but this worked for me. 11 wks and 3 days after first round.
