Brief Answer:
Gonadotropins are hormonal injections

Detailed Answer:

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

1) Gonadotropin is hormone which increase the size of eggs and there by help in getting pregnancy by helping in developing more than one egg.

2) The medicines you are taking wont affect your fertility and you can continue the same.

3) You can take gonadotropins only after getting folliclular growth scan done from a ultrasound scan centre and then these gonadotropins injections can be taken under supervision of a qualified doctor who can prescribe these medicines as these are not available over the counter.

4) You can continue the medicines you are taking now.

Let me know if you have anymore questions.
