Luveris is a drug whose active ingredient is the luteinizing hormone, or LH. This hormone is produced in the anterior lobe of the pituitary. Along with follicle-stimulating hormone or FSH, it is part of a group of hormones called gonadotropins. It is an essential hormone in the regulation of the menstrual cycle and in the production of other hormones.
Luveris is usually given in an ovarian stimulation to help the growth of follicles in LH-deficient women.
