Follistim AQ (follicle stimulating hormone) is a man-made form of a hormone that occurs naturally in the body. This hormone regulates ovulation, the growth and development of eggs in a woman's ovaries. Follistim AQ is used to treat infertility in women who cannot ovulate and do not have primary ovarian failure. Follistim AQ is also used to stimulate sperm production in men. Follistim AQ is often used together with another medication called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). Follistim AQ may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
Follistim AQ is a medication used to treat fertility problems using the follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). In women, Folotyn works to stimulate healthy ovaries to produce more healthy eggs. In men, it works to stimulate healthy testes to produce a greater sperm count. It does this by simply increasing the levels of naturally-occurring hormones in the body that aid in conception.
