PCOS treatment for Infertility :- The first PCOS treatment for infertility is usually the administration of medication to stimulate ovulation.
Medications Usage :-
Clomiphene Citrate [Clomid or Serophene] – This is an oral fertility drug used to stimulate ovulation, correct ovulation process, to improve egg production & to fix luteal phase deficiency. The drug is taken for five days early in the menstrual cycle.
Metformin [Glucophage] :- The drug is an insulin sensitizing agent used to induce ovulation. If clomid fails to ovulate, a combination of Metformin and clomid is taken as a PCOS treatment drug. Metformin increases the fertility by improving the effectiveness of the insulin while decreasing the insulin levels and in turn androgen levels. Normalizing the androgen levels enhances the natural ovulation.
hCG [Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin] :- The drug is an intramuscular injection used in conjunction with clomid. hCG acts as LH [Lutenising Hormone]. HCG stimulates the follicle to release its egg [ovulate].
The other commonly used PCOS treatment drugs for infertility include hMG [Human Menopausal Gonadotropins], FSH [Follicle Stimulating Hormone], GnRH [Gonadotrophin Releasing Hormone], GnRHa [GnRH analogs] and prolactin inhibition drugs.
