Functional Fertility Treatments
Our functional fertility program provides patients with a personalized strategy using effective and evidenced-based protocols with a practical approach and a supportive setting. Combining years of experience and cutting-edge science, we have achieved high success rates at only a fraction of the cost of other standard IVF methods. We are also known for providing individualized treatment plans, compassionate patient care, and support, giving you every possible chance for success.
The Medical Health Institute shares years of combined experience with partnering specialists who are nationally recognized as leaders in the field of hormone optimization (which is a big contributor to any successful fertility program), peptides, and other modalities. Whether helping you conceive or “prepping the ground” to provide you with the highest quality chances, we are always on the leading edge of technology. We will create a customized treatment plan based on your unique goals and needs.
How Could I Benefit From Fertility Treatment
While it is well known that lifestyle factors such as poor diet, sleep hygiene, or mineral deficiencies can affect fertility, men and women can be subject to more complex fertility issues. Whether you are a man suffering from low sperm count, poor motility, a woman dealing with ovulation complications, or even PCOS, a doctor specializing in this field of medicine can help you optimize the pathways that lead to success.
Infertility can cause emotional pressures, anxiety, or other stressors, and the dynamic in the relationship between partners can also suffer. As a result, using evidenced-based strategies and individualized coaching and support, we create an environment for high success and enjoyment of what could be a complicated process.
What Are The Commonly Prescribed Fertility Medications
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG)
Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GNRH)
Human Menopausal Gonadotropin
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, Or HCG
Is a peptide 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 luteinizing hormone (LH), which 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 aid supplements like Proxeed for both men and women.
Women administering 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.
Gonadotropin releasing hormone (GNRH), Like Kisspeptin Or Gonadorelin
GNRH are peptide hormones that stimulate the hypothalamus and pituitary to secrete both luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). These peptide hormones control the hormonal reproductive function of the gonads.
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, both in and out of the IVF settings.
Clomiphene Or Enclomiphene
These medications are “estrogen modulators” that triggers the body to produce more follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). These oral medications are often among the first used for ovulation induction. They may have few side effects, but we have an upgraded version, which contains virtually no side effects, called enclomiphene. Generally, there is a 7-8% chance for multiple gestations, most of which are twins.
It is an ovarian hormone necessary to support early embryo development. Without it, the uterine lining will not adequately thicken, and implantation will not occur. Women undergoing egg retrieval for in-vitro fertilization are generally prescribed progesterone because some cells that usually produce progesterone are removed.
