Hello,
Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

Yes. You can try Gonadotropin injection for infertility.

Because you have already tried and failed by using UROFOLLITROPHIN (folliova).

You can also try Clomiphene
In women who do not ovulate, clomiphene, rather than gonadotropins, is often recommended as an initial treatment.
The advantages of clomiphene compared to gonadotropins include
1. Ease of oral administration
2. Fewer side effects
3. Lower cost (of the medication itself, as well as the monitoring)
4. Lower risk of multiple pregnancies, and reduced time commitment (related to monitoring during treatment).

But Gonodotropin is given by injection.

Early in the menstrual cycle, FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) is given by injection 12 days for maturation of follicles.
Once the follicle is matured as seen by serial ultrasound.
One dose of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) will be given to stimulate ovulation.

Side effects are more common and more serious with gonadotropin treatment.

Please consider Clomiphene and compare both.
Consult with your Gynecologist regarding this for further management of your infertility.

Hope this helps.
Please reply for further queries.
Wishing you good health.
