Luveris How to Take

Lutropin alpha belongs to the class of medications called gonadotropins. Lutropin alpha contains the human hormone luteinizing hormone (LH). Lutropin alpha is a fertility medication that helps follicles (eggs) in the ovaries to develop and mature. It is used in combination with another fertility medication called Gonal-f® (follitropin alpha) when a women's pituitary gland does not produce enough LH.
