Medication Instructions

Medication Instructions

Uses

  • This medication is used to treat infertility in women. It works by stimulating an increase in the amount of hormones that support the growth and release of a mature egg (ovulation). This medication is not recommended for women whose ovaries no longer make eggs properly (primary pituitary or ovarian failure).

How to use

  • Clomiphene must be taken by mouth exactly as directed by your doctor in order to be most effective. It is important to follow your dosing schedule carefully.
    Your dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy. Do not take it more often or for a longer time than prescribed by your doctor.

Uses

  • sold under the trade name Femara. Letrozole belongs to a class of medications known as aromatase inhibitors. Aromatase is an enzyme that is responsible for the production of estrogen in the body. Letrozole works by inhibiting aromatase thereby suppressing estrogen production. Clomiphene citrate, on the other hand, blocks estrogen receptors. In both cases, the result is that the pituitary gland produces more of the hormones needed to stimulate the ovaries. These hormones, FSH and LH, can cause the development of ovulation in women who are anovulatory or increase the number of eggs developing in the ovaries of women who already ovulate. As a result, several studies have now been published using letrozole as a fertility drug.

Uses

  • Lupron is an HCG versus agonist. Lupron causes a natural LH surge that ripens nearly mature eggs but does not cause any prolonged ovarian stimulation the way a shot of hCG would do.  This is due to the fact that natural LH has a very short half-life in the body but hCG does not. The one caveat for Lupron triggers is that it can’t be used in cycles already using Lupron as part of the IVF regimen.

Uses
