 Indications Prepubertal cryptorchidism not due to anatomical obstruction; selected cases of hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (eg, hypogonadism secondary to pituitary deficiency) in men; induction of ovulation in anovulatory, infertile women in whom the cause of anovulation is secondary and not caused by primary ovarian failure and who have been appropriately pretreated with human menotropins.

  • Ensure that women have had a thorough gynecological and endocrinologic evaluation before starting therapy.
  • Ensure that men have had a thorough medical and endocrinological evaluation before starting therapy.
  • Monitor women for signs of overstimulation of the ovary (eg, difficulty breathing, severe pelvic pain, nausea, vomiting, weight gain, stomach pain or bloating, diarrhea, infrequent urination) and report to health care provider immediately if noted.
