Response to For those that read the Check study posted by KerriA


definitely a GREAT refresher on all that was discussed on that first consultation with him!

Aside from the medical aspect, I really appreciate that he threw in an economics hint into favor of the patient!!

Concur with Tracy.

hMG is derived from the urine of post-menopausal or pregnant women. It's the "real stuff" meaning it comes from humans. Menopur is an hMG.

Gonal F is an FSH med that is not derived like hMG but instead "manufactured" using recombinant DNA.

btw, HCG is another drug that comes in 2 forms. Ovidrel is the manufactured version and Novarel and Pregnyl are made from the urine of PG women.

P.S. - I wonder if this article is in the stack of articles that we walk away with in that first consult. I have to check!!
