There’s a plethora of female infertility treatments formulated precisely for women you can get right from their corner drugstores. An increasing number of online health product merchants make them available right in the comfort and privacy of their homes or office. Two drugs commonly used by women with a strong desire to be pregnant are Clomiphene citrate and gonadotropins. Their popularity have been occasioned by their high success rates that have made millions of women bring to the world the child they’ve been longing for.
Gonadotropin Infertility Cure
Low concentrations of the follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) or the luteinizing hormone (LH) are often the culprit in pregnancy failures. Gonadotropins are administered in women to stimulate ovulation. These are the same set of drugs that are used when preparing for in vitro fertilization (IVF) which can result in healthy ovum cells to be extracted for artificial insemination. The hormones come in two drug formulation – recombinant (synthetic) or urine-based (natural). Either drugs are administered by intravenous injection with the recombinant version proven to have more success.
Another type of gonadotrophin is the hMG or Human Menopausal Gonadotropin which is an alternative of Clomiphene citrate. This infertility cure is most beneficial in women with low levels of estrogen, luteal phase defects and PCOS. It is also used when undergoing IVF. Success rates for these gonadotropins in inducing the woman to ovulate is in excess of 75%.
Clomiphene Citrate Infertility Cure
Better known with its brand name Clomid, Milophine and Serophene, Clomiphene Citrate is an infertility cure that stimulates ovulation. It’s been in the market since 1960 when it entered clinical trials. Unlike gonadotropins that are administered by injections, this one can be taken orally. It stimulates the release of FHS and LH hormones and increases the chances of ovulation for up to 90%.
Thanks it nearly 50 years of use, its side effects are well documented. Affecting about 10% to 14% of women who take the drug, it can cause ovarian enlargement and occasional hot flashes while a fewer 6% suffer headaches, vision acuity problems, vomiting and nausea. But these are few and far between. Women with infrequent ovulation from irregular menstrual cycles, PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) along with women scheduled to have in vitro fertilization (IVF) are excellent candidates in bringing female infertility treatments to high success rates.
Like what they often say about any kind of medication, an ounce of prevention is still better than a pound of infertility cure.
