The active substance in Puregon, follitropin beta, is a copy of the natural hormone follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). In the body, FSH regulates the reproductive function: in women, it stimulates the production of eggs, and in men, it stimulates the production of sperm by the testicles.
Follitropin Beta Injectable
This stuff costs $1000 per tube, and we'll your going to need a lot of tubes this cost was half of what we paid for the whole process! I guess if it's doing the job then god bless this medicine but it's expensive stays in your fridge and does not burn or hurt like some of the other shots you have to take
I found the pen very easy to use. I was able to retrieve 25 eggs for my IVF using 150 dose with menopur.
Not great results for me.
My first try with Follistim pen worked and I'm 10 weeks and 2 days pregnant.

Not a big deal to use these and it's definitely worth it. I think it's the only reason I'm still pregnant. So thankful.

I gave this a three stars since I just received the shot two days ago but I will say I haven't had any of the side effects. I'm going to wait and do a pregnancy test in two weeks, that's when the HCG is out of my system and right before my period.

Okay. So definitely emotional. And my ovaries felt HUGE! But it felt like it was working, so no complaints.
