Medicines that stimulate ovulation can sometimes lead to some side effects, including insomnia, irritability, sudden and frequent mood swings, depression, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, painful sensations when you touch the mammary glands, abdominal pain, headaches, augmentation of the size of the ovaries, impaired vision, weight gain. But such temporary side effects for women are insignificant when they face a more important goal – to have a child.
Drugs are prescribed to women depending on the results of the ultrasound, various analyzes, as well as the age of the patient, the period of unsuccessful attempts to conceive, the possible causes of infertility. Take note also of the fact that before applying any medication the doctor should appoint you to undergo a test to determine the patency of the fallopian tubes. Such measures will help to protect the female body from ectopic pregnancy and, as a result, from unnecessary stress, which is so undesirable during pregnancy planning.
In some cases, for the treatment of infertility (if such a diagnosis is indeed established) resort to medical methods. In particular, to take oral medications. For example, if a woman does not have ovulation, then she is prescribed drugs that stimulate these processes. Experts divide them into three groups since the tablets of each group have different actions in their essence. For example, the drugs of the first group stimulate the growth and formation of follicles on the ovaries. Preparations of the second group are called triggers of ovulation, which stimulate (or mimic) the release of luteinizing hormone, which ensures the maturation of the egg and, in fact, the very ovulation. And drugs related to the third, contribute to the maintenance of the functioning of the yellow body.
Medicines for the activation of ovulation appoint: women whose ovulation is characterized by irregularity, that is, absent or occurs rarely; women who can not naturally become pregnant within a year; women over the age of 35, whose pregnancy does not occur more than six months. Stimulate ovulation is not recommended if there is no possibility to regularly control the formation of follicles with the help of ultrasound, infertility is detected in a man, a woman has an obstruction of the fallopian tubes.
