Infertility - Infertility Treatment
For many couples experiencing fertility problems, drugs are often the first step in treatment. Many women are prescribed drugs such as Clomifene (Clomid), gonadotrophins such as Preganyl, and Bromocriptine (Parlodel).
These drugs can help ovulation by stimulating hormones in the brain to produce and release an egg or eggs from the ovaries each month. For women who don't ovulate at all or who only do so occasionally, such drugs can seem like a miracle cure. These drugs can also be used to treat some male fertility problems.
Many prescribed fertility drugs have been used safely and with great success for many years, although they are not without their risks. These risks can include severe side effects and sometimes a high risk of multiple pregnancy. So, before embarking on any drug treatment for fertility problems, you will need to consider how you would react to the news that there may be more than one baby on the way.
