What is Follistim AQ Cartridge?

Follistim AQ Cartridge (follitropin beta) helps women who are trying to become pregnant via assisted reproduction techniques (such as in vitro fertilization) to produce multiple eggs. It may also be used to help infertile women ovulate when the infertility is unrelated to the health of the ovaries. This drug comes in a cartridge and is to be used in conjunction with the Follistim Pen. The pen and cartridge deliver a pre-measured injection under the skin. This system allows a woman a more convenient way to self-administer fertility therapy in her own home. This drug works by stimulating ovaries, which forces them to produce mature eggs. Follistim AQ Cartridge is a brand name for this product.
