Unfortunately, many women cannot get pregnant naturally. For such cases, ovulation stimulation is used in medicine. This process should take place under the constant supervision of a doctor.
Before taking any medication, a couple who decide to become pregnant by IVF undergoes a medical examination, after which the doctor prescribes the most suitable drugs. The drug "Klostilbegit" is widely used. Usually they start taking it from the fifth day of menstruation. If an additional medicine is included, such as Puregon, then Klostilbegit is prescribed from the third day of menstruation. During the appointment, an ultrasound examination is required to monitor the follicle. It is necessary to monitor its ripening. When it reaches the required size, the drug "Pregnyl" is connected, and the long-awaited ovulation soon follows. Many married couples become pregnant with the first dose of these drugs, but the age of the parents-to-be and the duration of infertility should be considered.
Taking vitamins is considered mandatory in the process of taking medications. In addition to proper nutrition, folic acid is needed to avoid intrauterine pathologies.
"Clostilbegit" is available in tablets for oral administration. It is well absorbed from the intestines. It is an antiestrogenic drug that binds to estrogen receptors in the hypothalamus and thereby blocks the negative feedback system. While the course of taking the drug is underway, the concentration of estradiol in the blood increases. After stopping the intake, estradiol continues to grow, positive and negative feedback mechanisms are activated, and ovulation occurs. That is, "Klostilbegit" starts the very mechanisms that take place in the body during a normal menstrual cycle.
The drug "Menopur" can also be considered an assistant in the growth of follicles. It is injected subcutaneously or intramuscularly. At first, the drug is administered in small doses. If no reaction is observed, then the dose is gradually increased. When the growth of the follicle begins, apply exactly the amount from which it began, and so on until the final result. As a rule, there are no pronounced side effects, but it all depends on the patient's body.
With stimulation, I bought Puregon the drug. It differs from other drugs in that when applied, it is possible to ripen not one, but two follicles at once. It is administered subcutaneously or intramuscularly. Ultrasound control is required. The drug is contraindicated in oncology, uterine bleeding, diseases of internal organs. This drug has received many excellent reviews from doctors and from patients during its existence. Side effects include ectopic pregnancy, allergies, and edema. "Puregon" and alcohol are incompatible, therefore, during the period of treatment, alcoholic beverages must be abandoned.
