What is Gonal F used for?
Gonal F is used to treat infertility in women by stimulating the ovaries to produce eggs. It is also used to treat male infertility by increasing sperm count.
It is used in Ovulation Induction (OI) and in vitro fertilization (IVF), to supplement a woman’s naturally occurring follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). Gonal F is not effective if the patient is no longer developing eggs or producing sperm.

- abnormal bleeding from the vagina or the uterus;
- uncontrolled adrenal gland or thyroid disease;
- ovarian cysts or enlargement, not due to polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS);
