Like all gonadotropins, MENOPUR may produce side effects. Among the most common are abdominal pain, abdominal cramping, nausea, headache, ovarian disease, vaginal hemorrhage, and enlarged abdomen.
A less common but potentially serious side effect associated with all gonadotropin therapy is OHSS, a condition in which the ovaries may become swollen and painful due to excessive stimulation. OHSS occurred in approximately 3.8% of IVF patients who were treated with MENOPUR.
If you experience any side effects, contact your doctor immediately. You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
