    Default Anyone heard of or used Elonva???

    Hi!!
    I am about to head into another cycle of IVF, this time my stim drug will be Elonva. I have never used it or even heard of it before, and google is not proving to be much help...is this a new drug on the market for IVF?
    All previous cycles I have been on gonal f so not sure why my FS has decided to switch to this drug...any ideas anyone???
    All I know about it is that I start it on CD3 and it is just one single injection that lasts 7 days, on CD7 I am to have my first scan with FS and if need be he will 'top me up'.
    Hoping someone has some info and maybe a success story to share!!
    Baby dust to all!!

    Hi bubs I used it on one of my cycles and really liked it and got the same results as Gonal f. As to whether it's better I have no idea. However thought it was achieving the same result as 7 days of Gonal f.

    Hi bub4

    i used elonva for my cycle and it was good because u only have to have 1 injection over 7 days. I required an additional 4 days of injections after the 7 days as my follicles weren't at the right size.

    Elonva is fairly new in Australia but has been used in the UK for some years.

    Good luck

    I have heard positive things about it and I actually wanted to use it this cycle but my FS flat out refused :/ Her reason was once it is injected, if does not agree with me, cannot do anything to reverse it etc. I think if next cycle in December isn't real positive, I may press it with her next time and say I am willing to take the risks... hell can't make me feel any worse than the regular meds do anyhow (450 puregon and 250 orgalutran - December one we are adding synarel).
