Follistim® AQ Cartridge

About Follistim® AQ

Follistim® AQ is a manufactured version of a hormone found naturally in the body called follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). FSH, in combination with another hormone called LH (luteinizing hormone), is responsible for the growth of eggs in the ovaries during the menstrual cycle. Follistim® AQ is prescribed to women as a daily subcutaneous (under the skin) injection for approximately 8-12 days to help stimulate the growth and maturation of multiple eggs during fertility treatment such as IVF. It may also be prescribed to men to help improve sperm production.

Follistim® AQ comes in medication cartridges that are loaded into the Follistim Pen for injection. The Follistim Pen allows for dosing in 25 IU increments, from a minimum of 50 IU to a maximum of 450 IU per injection.
