There are many different fertility medication options that may be explored during your journey with us at CNY Fertility Center. Here is a brief description of just a few of those options.
Letrozole/Clomid: Letrozole (Femara )/Clomiphene Citrate (Clomid) are common medications that are initially prescribed for patients who are unable to ovulate empirically with unspecified infertility in combination with insemination. Women who have normal fallopian tubes, regular 28 day cycles and partners with a normal sperm count, but are still experiencing infertility, are termed as having ‘unspecified’ infertility.Click here to read more on Clomid.
Injectable medications are used for IVF or IUI cycles. One of the main processes in an IVF or IUI treatment cycle is the controlled stimulation of the ovaries, to produce eggs. The medications used in ovulation induction are called gonadotropins. Brand names include Follistim, Gonal-F, Menopur, Bravelle, and Repronex. Gonadotropins are primarily used to treat two types of women: 1) those who do not ovulate, ovulate irregularly, or have failed to conceive using Clomiphene citrate (Clomid) and 2) women who ovulate on their own, but may need help in producing multiple eggs, and whose bodies would benefit from the enhanced hormonal environment.
