Ovitrelle contains hCG alfa, which is similar to the human chorionich gonadotropin, but it is made in laboratories by special recombinant DNA techniques. The term recombinant refers to the fact that it is completely sinthesised in the laboratory and doesn’t contain any animal substance.
This product is prescribed in assisted reproduction treatments to stimulate the ovulation and help the follicles mature after a controlled stimulation of the follicle growth.
