Decided I'd read the patient information sheet this evening. It says; "This is a mixture of hormones extracted from the urine of women who have passed the menopause. ........" shock Learn something new every day!

It's vile, isn't it. Though does suggest we can one day top up our pensions by selling our piss to pharmaceutical companies.

Menopausal nuns' piss no less (apparently)

Probably isn't true, but equally would be plausible that nunneries would be a good one stop shop for post menopausal women

Alternative is Gonal-F, made from Chinese hamster ovaries!

Nun's Wee was indeed what I was told when I used it 10 years ago! In fact, I knew that this thread would be about it as soon as I saw the title grin. Mind you, the 10 year old result of my little bottles of Nun's Wee loves Call the Midwife, so maybe that's one of the reasons why............
