Your Fertility Journey With Us
Fertility medications are a vital part of treatment for many types of infertility and other assisted reproductive technologies. We will work together to create a customized treatment plan based on your unique physical, metabolic, lifestyle, emotional, and financial needs.
How Could I Benefit From Fertility Treatment?
Sperm quality matters as much as ovulation when you want a fetus with no medical complications. Both men and women can benefit from fertility drugs. Many romantic partners wish to start a family and raise healthy children.
Men may suffer from low sperm count or have been diagnosed with slow or sluggish sperm. While lifestyle factors like diet and sleep hygiene can affect their count, sometimes a doctor’s assistance can optimize the baby’s health. They are often prescribed fertility medication and supplements. These medications and supplements can help increase sperm count, volume, and motility.
In women, we aim to stimulate ovulation and may help in cases of unexplained infertility. Our goal is to enable women to optimize the chances of conceiving by timing intercourse. They can also reduce the effects of unidentified ovulation issues.
Fertility drugs generally work like natural hormones to trigger ovulation. Some are used in women who ovulate to stimulate a better or extra egg. Others are used in men to improve sperm health.
Our patients are successfully treated with fertility medications and supplements alone. These medications and supplements stimulate the ovaries to produce eggs and prepare the body to receive an embryo.
Fertility Medication For Overall Health
You don’t have to struggle with infertility. Our physicians prescribe several different types of fertility medication. We list them below.
Clomiphene is an oral fertility medication. It triggers the body to produce more of its follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). This oral medication is often among the first used for ovulation induction.
Standard clomiphene has few side effects. Our doctors have the new version of Enclomiphene, which contains virtually no side effects. Generally, there is a 7-8% chance for multiple gestations, most of which are twins.
Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone (GnRH) Peptides
Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) peptides stimulate the pituitary secretion of luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). As a result, they control the hormonal and reproductive functions of the gonads.
Letrozole is an oral ovulation induction agent that works directly upon the ovaries. It has fewer side effects than clomiphene citrate and less risk for multiple gestations.
Gonadotropins are commonly used for ovulation induction during in vitro fertilization. Gonadotropins are a class of injectable fertility drugs that directly stimulate the ovaries. Gonadotropins are made from highly purified follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and cause the ovaries to develop and mature multiple eggs simultaneously.
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin
Human chorionic gonadotropin, or HCG, is a hormone usually released by the body after an embryo has been implanted in the uterine lining. However, its effects on the body are similar to those of the luteinizing hormone (LH). LH initiates the final maturation and release of the egg(s) from the ovary.
HCG is generally used to trigger ovulation in combination with other fertility supplements like Proxeed for both men and women. Women administered HCG should know that pregnancy tests work by detecting this hormone. Therefore, an at-home pregnancy test can produce a false positive by detecting residual amounts of HCG from treatment. Only a laboratory test that measures actual HCG levels can confirm pregnancy in such cases.
Human Menopausal Gonadotropin
Human Menopausal Gonadotropin, commonly known as human menopausal gonadotropin (HMG), contains both follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH). Like the Gonadotropins listed above, HMG is an injectable fertility medication used in ovulation induction. Doctors implement the drug both in and out of the IVF settings.
Progesterone is an ovarian hormone necessary for the support of the early embryo. Without it, the uterine lining will not adequately thicken, and implantation will not occur. Women who undergo egg retrieval for in vitro fertilization are generally prescribed progesterone supplements. Some of the cells that usually produce progesterone are removed.
