Menopur is a drug used in assisted reproduction techniques for controlled ovarian stimulation.
It is a highly purified menotropin (human menopausal gonadotropin, HMG-hP), with follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) activity. Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), a hormone naturally present in the urine of menopausal women, is the major contributor to the LH activity of this drug.
When compared with recombinant gonadotropin products, no differences in safety, purity, or clinical efficacy have been observed.
