Thanks to the advancements in medical research, there are now a number of treatments and drugs available to help increase a woman’s fertility.
Drugs have been used to stimulate fertility for over 50 years now and they continue to remain the foundation for fertility drug treatment even today. There are various techniques and strategies that have been used by humans since the very beginning of time to improve fertility but thanks to the advances in medical science, we now have a more measurable way of finding out what the most effective fertility treatments are.
There are generally two types of fertility drugs that are commonly used today, Clomid and Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH). Let’s discuss in a little more technical details on what these drugs are capable of.
Clomid is focused mainly on the pituitary gland, which forces it to release hormones, which are called follicle stimulation hormone (FSH) and luteinising hormone (LH). The benefit of this drug is that it encourages the woman’s ovary to produce follicles. These follicles are then allowed to grow and develop to ovulation.
There is a potential side effect of this treatment as studies have shown that if you take Clomid, there is an increased risk of having twins. The risk of triplets also increases but it is still generally considered to be around 200 to one.
Another popular treatment is known as Assistive Reproduction Therapy. This process allows for pregnancy to occur without insemination. There are a few different ways of achieving this. There’s a treatment which is known as IUI which places a small amount of sperm into the cervix during ovulation.
This type of surgery has seen some big advancements in recent years and there are many success stories. However, the success rate can vary considerably and it will depend on each individual situation.
The other popular fertility treatment is known as IVF. This type of surgery involves fertilizing the egg whilst outside the uterus. IVF can be a long commitment and it’s important to seek professional fertility advice before seriously considering this type of surgery.
One of the barriers many face with IVF is the high cost. However, there are now many cheaper alternatives available and this includes medical tourism. GYNEM fertility clinic based in the Czech Republic is a team of highly qualified professionals with a state-of-the-art facility just north of the Czech capital, Prague. If you are looking for a reliable cost-effective way of funding IVF, then I can recommend GYNEM.
This is just the top of the iceberg when it comes to fertility treatments. There are countless alternative therapies and the advancement in medical knowledge means that new research continues to shed light on what can be done to increase fertility. Make sure to have a thorough consultation with a fertility expert. Alternatively, there are many high-quality resources available online for you to undertake further research.
