Hormones

Follicle stimulating hormone

 

Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland. It regulates the functions of both the ovaries and testes. Lack or insufficiency of it can cause infertility or subfertility in both women and men. In pharmaceutical preparation, it is called follitropin.

There are two types of preparation, either by human source (menopausal women’s urine) or by recombinant DNA origin (produced in genetically engineered Chinese hamster cell lines). Menopausal women’s urine contains higher content of gonadotropins hormones (FSH and LH – Luteinizing hormone). High technology purification and extraction processes has enabled the production of highly purified gonadotropins. The process includes eliminating every form of impurity and non-conforming molecules, leaving behind pure forms of FSH that can be injected subcutaneously or intra-muscularly.

FSH is one of the hormones essential to pubertal development and the function of women’s ovaries and men’s testes. In women, this hormone stimulates the growth of ovarian follicles in the ovary before the release of an egg from one follicle at ovulation. In men, FSH acts on the Sertoli cells of the testes to stimulate sperm production.

Follitropin (pharmaceutical preparation) is used in Controlled Ovarian Hyperstimulation (COS), a technique used in assisted reproduction to induce ovulation of multiple ovarian follicles. These multiple follicles can be taken out by egg collection for use in In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) or Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI).

Human Menopausal Gonadotropin

Human Menopausal Gonadotropin (hMG), also known as Menotropin, is a pharmaceutical preparation containing Follicle Stimulating hormone (FSH) and Luteinizing hormone (LH) activity. hMG is commercially available at FSH:LH ratio of 1:1.

LH is a hormone produced in the pituitary gland. In female, LH activity acts synergistically with follicle-stimulating hormones (FSH) to promote the growth of the follicle in the normal menstrual cycle. Another role it plays, is to trigger the mature egg to ovulate with an acute rise of LH (LH surge) in the body. In males, it stimulates production of testosterone in Leydig cells.

Foliculin

 

FOLICULIN contains highly purified follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) extracted from human source. Follicle stimulating hormone is a hormonal treatment commonly used in assisted reproductive techniques (ARTs) and in vitro fertilization (IVF).

HuCoG

 

HuCoG contains human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is commonly used in assistive reproductive techniques (ARTs) and in vitro fertilisation (IVF). hCG is usually used in lieu/as an analogue of Luteinizing hormone (LH) to stimulate and promote follicle maturation.

hCG works by stimulating ovulation, maintaining the corpus luteum and to promote endometrial thickening through progesterone stimulation in women. In men, it works by stimulating testosterone secretion by the Leydig cells of the testicles to increase spermatogenesis.

PreN-FD

PreN-FD

PREN-FD is a duo combination of 4th-Generation active folate and Vitamin D3.

it is important to start increasing folate consumption (or what we normally know as folic acid) three months before pregnancy. This will allow the body to gradually increase folate level to be optimal.
Early pregnancy support with folate is especially important for the protection of your future baby against neural tube defects, such as spina bifida.
PREN-FD contains biologically active folate that can be utilized immediately by the body as compared to the synthetic form (folic acid) that will need to undergo more dynamic digestion to become active folate.

The RCOG recommends pregnant women to focus on obtaining sufficient levels of Folate and Vitamin D.

Vitamin D3 is important for the health of women’s reproductive system. An optimal Vitamin D level in the body may improve chances to conceive and have a healthy pregnancy. Vitamin D deficiency is also linked to conditions that affect fertility, including polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, and uterine fibroids.

Intimate Care

Conceive Plus

 

Conceive Plus ® fertility-friendly lubricant is Isotonic and pH Balanced. Our Patented formulation, is developed by Doctors especially for couples who are trying to conceive naturally. It helps by removing a barrier to fertility, adding additional moisture to help create an environment where sperm viability and sperm motility are optimal. The additional lubrication helps to increase the probability of fertilisation.

Conceive Plus ® is the only fertility-friendly lubricant in the world that contains Calcium and Magnesium ions. These ions are essential for cell viability in our bodies and essential for the process of fertilisation. There are many published studies that show the importance of Calcium and Magnesium, and that these ions help to support the natural functions of the body to increase the chances of getting pregnant naturally.

Regular personal lubricants can create a barrier to sperm motility, reducing the ability of sperm to fertilize the egg. Conceive Plus ® preserves motility by mixing with the sperm within a matter of minutes. The gentle formulation of Conceive Plus ® matches fertile cervical liquid and semen to help create a fertility-friendly environment.

How do you use the Multi-Use Tube?

Remove the safety seal under the cap before first use. Apply a generous amount of lubricant to the vagina or penis and reapply as often as required to maintain sufficient lubrication. May be used with Conceive Plus Pre-filled Applicators for intra-vaginal application.

How do you use the Pre-Filled Applicators?

Remove applicator from the box, do not use if tamper-evident tab is broken. Hold applicator narrow end facing upwards, twist off the tab and discard. Gently insert the narrow end of the applicator deep into the vagina and squeeze the bulb end 2-3 times to deposit Conceive Plus into the vaginal cavity. Remove while continuing to squeeze the bulb end and discard.

 

Each applicator is for single use only and cannot be stored after opening or reused. May be applied 10-15 minutes prior to sexual activity to allow moisture to disperse throughout the vagina. Each applicator contains 4 grams of Conceive Plus®. We suggest using Conceive Plus multi-use tube if additional moisture is required or use another applicator.

 

Conceive Plus Multi-use Tube may be used in conjunction with Conceive Plus® Pre-filled Applicators for intra-vaginal application.

There are two conditions that majorly affect lubricant effectiveness, which are pH and osmolality.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the optimal condition for sperm survival and migration is when the cervical mucus has a pH of 7-8.5. It is also recommended that osmolality of a personal lubricant should also not exceed 380 mOsm/kg to minimize any risk of epithelial damage.

Conceive Plus not only supplies Calcium and Magnesium ions beneficial for fertilisation, but also a controlled pH and osmolality environment, optimal for sperm survival.
