Our curiosity is revolutionizing the fertility community. With our legacy in the space, we have developed a deep understanding of the needs of healthcare professionals and couples trying to start a family.

Leaders in Fertility

The thought of welcoming a new baby to a loving home is an exciting prospect for many parents. Strollers, birth announcements and baby showers take on new meaning as a sign of the future. But for people struggling to start a family, these cues serve as painful reminders of the one thing they don't yet have. This emotionally uncertain and frustrating journey is more common than many might think; in fact, 1 in 8 U.S. couples experiences difficulty conceiving.1

The good news: there is hope for some of those couples impacted by infertility. EMD Serono has been a leader in the space, offering drugs, devices, technologies and services to help couples throughout fertility treatment.

Our Fertility Products

More than 20 years ago, we brought to market GONAL-f® (follitropin alfa for injection), one of the first recombinant human products used in the treatment of infertility. We proceeded to build a portfolio of complementary products and devices to use during a fertility treatment cycle, including Ovidrel® PreFilled Syringe (choriogonadotropin alfa injection) and Cetrotide® (cetrorelix acetate for injection).

Important Safety Information

These products should only be prescribed by physicians specializing in fertility or reproductive health. Risks include the following events which can be serious: allergic reactions; ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS); lung problems, blood clots, and multiple births. For complete product details about a specific fertility drug, please refer to the Full Prescribing Information for full disclosure.

Caring for the whole patient

Fertility Lifelines

Supporting families impacted by infertility goes beyond medication, which is why EMD Serono created comprehensive programs to help patients access care through educational, emotional and financial support.

With the emotional toll that infertility takes in people's lives, providing resources, information and hope is critical to navigating its challenges. Our Fertility Lifelines website supports people on this journey by providing information about infertility and options, resources, and fertility medication savings through programs like Compassionate Care and the Go Direct to Savings for eligible patients living with infertility.

Bridging to the Future of Fertility

Fertility drug treatments are just one piece of the equation in helping people impacted by infertility; today, a laboratory with innovative technologies plays a critical role in maximizing the chances of fertility treatment success. That’s why we complemented our legacy in fertility drug treatments with the launch of a dedicated Fertility Technologies unit to help improve treatment outcomes in the laboratory.

We are collaborating with partners to offer a new technology-focused product portfolio, presently comprised of the innovative Geri®, GidgetTM and GemsTM product lines.

Bringing a portfolio of innovative, modular solutions to fertility clinics and labs will help to improve standardization and consistency and ultimately drive better outcomes for patients facing infertility.
