Why are gonadotropins used for ovarian stimulation in assisted reproduction techniques?

By Silvia Azaña Gutiérrez B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 01/31/2022

Gonadotropins are used for ovarian stimulation in assisted reproduction because they are essential hormones in the regulation of the woman's natural menstrual cycle.

Because of this, administering gonadotropins exogenously to the patient will allow the specialist to better control the cycle, the maturation of a greater number of follicles and to determine the moment when ovulation will occur. All this contributes to increase the probability of success of assisted reproduction treatments.
