Puregon Pen

To inject your daily dosage of Puregon you need a cartridge filled with Puregon and a Pen that allows you easy injection of the medication. The cartridge has to be kept in the fridge before its first use.
Use the same Puregon Pen, if your doctor has not told you any other way, for the whole duration of your treatment or until it is empty. Puregon is either administered only the first 3 to 4 days or during the whole duration of your stimulation protocol.
How to inject your daily dosage. Firmly pull off the protective cap from the pen body. Unscrew the entire pen body from the cartridge holder. Place the cartridge into the cartridge holder with the metal rimmed cap first. Lower the pen body over the cartridge holder and screw it on firmly. The arrow on the Cartridge Holder must point to the middle of the yellow alignment mark on the blue Pen Body.

Screw on one of the single-use disposable needles supplied with the pen and remove the outer needle cap. Check if there is an air bubble in the liquid. If this is the case, please remove the air bubble before you inject your daily dosage. Press the selection dial until you hear a clicking noise. Remove inner needle cap by gently pulling it straight off, hold the pen in the air with the tip of the needle showing upwards and gently tap the prefilled reservoir with your finger to let any air bubbles rise to the top. Keep the needle pointing upward and push in the injection button completely, a few drops of the liquid will appear at the needle tip. The dosage control in the window should again show “zero”. Now adjust your daily dosage. Check if you have dialled the correct dose. If by mistake you have dialled the wrong dose, continue to turn the dosage knob in the same direction past the 450 units mark, as far as it will turn. The dosage scale must move freely.Push the injection button in all the way. Start to dial again starting from ‘zero’ upwards.

Puregon is injected under the skin (subcutaneous) of the abdomen. Gently squeeze the skin around the injection site with one hand about handle wide from the navel. With the other hand clean the injection site using a fresh alcohol swab and let the skin dry for about one minute. Make a fist clutching the pen and quickly push the needle in to the skin in a 90° angle. Press the injection button with your thumb until it stops clicking with the same clicking noise with which you loaded your pen. Hold the pen in place for 5 seconds before removing the needle from the skin. It is very important to keep your thumb on the injection button while removing the pen. The dosage in the window should again show “zero” if you have injected your dosage correctly. Using a clean alcohol swab apply pressure on the injection site if there is minor bleeding or discharge.

Hold the pen firmly by the drug reservoir and replace the outer needle cap. Grip the outer needle cap firmly and unscrew the pen by turning it counterclockwise. Recap the Puregon pen and keep it in the fridge until the next injection is due. Choose a different site every day, but please always apply your daily dosage at the same time of the day.
