Women's Health in focus

In women’s health, Teva's aim is to improve the quality of care and quality of life for women of all ages worldwide. We’re doing this with a broad portfolio of solutions in reproductive health, contraception, menopause, and benign gynaecological conditions.

Reproductive health, including infertility and endometriosis, can put massive strain on women themselves and their families. It is estimated that infertility affects one in seven heterosexual couples in the UK and now a greater proportion of people are seeking treatment for such problems.1

The main causes of infertility in the UK are (percent figures indicate approximate prevalence):

  • Unexplained infertility (no identified male or female cause) (25%)
  • Ovulatory disorders (25%)
  • Tubal damage (20%)
  • Factors causing male infertility (30%)
  • Uterine related disorders (10%). 1

For more information on infertility, you can go to the NHS ‘live well’ website:http://www.nhs.uk/livewell/fertility/Pages/Fertilityhome.aspx

There are a range of medical treatments that are able to help the various causes of infertility. These could be: surgical interventions, medicine or assisted-reproductive technologies.

Our range of medicines in Women's Health includes Ovaleap®(follitropin alfa)*, a recombinant follicle stimulating hormone for use by women undergoing Assisted Reproduction Technologies (ART).

Support for patients with women's health issues

We believe that supporting patients with fertility issues is important and also complex. As well as playing our part, we know that charities and other patient organisations provide valuable support too, that's why we also point you in their direction.

  • More information and support for patients with women’s health issues can be accessed through the main patient charities in the UK; Infertility Network UK and Women’s Health Alliance where valuable support and advice is available to patients, carers and their families.
  • You can also connect with patients who have women’s health disorders through patient communities such as Patients like me and Patient.co.uk and FertilityFriends. Sharing experiences and finding other patients who have the same concerns and outlook as you do can provide reassurance and support when you need it most.

Supporting Patients Now and In the Future

We continue to explore opportunities to expand into other treatments for women’s health issues. Our intent remains, as always, to provide patients with the most effective and safest treatments for their diseases.

Our work with patients, and our experience in this area of therapy, means we are really well placed to invest in extensive research into potential medicines to cure or help alleviate the many symptoms of Women’s health conditions to offer patients a wider choice of treatments.
