Fostimon is a brand name for a medication called follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). FSH is a hormone that is naturally produced in the body and is essential for the growth and development of eggs in women and the production of sperm in men.
Fostimon is used in assisted reproductive technology (ART) treatments, such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple eggs. It is also used in men to stimulate the production of sperm.
Fostimon is typically given by injection under the skin or into a muscle. The dosage and duration of treatment with Fostimon will vary depending on the individual's specific fertility needs and response to the medication. As with any medication, Fostimon may cause side effects, such as headache, abdominal pain, and injection site reactions.
