Highly variable: Many insurances will cover evaluation of infertility, even if they don't cover treatment. The best tests to get for an individual will vary depending on your history (and the male-partner's history). Best to check the man quickly.

Letrazole: Letrazole is probably as effective as Clomid (clomiphene) in inducing ovulation and probably better in patients with pcos. It is used off-label for this purpose but has some advantages over clomid (clomiphene). Does not cause thinning of the uterine lining, doesn't affect cervical mucus and induces a single follicle, so less chance of multiples and hyperstimulation. ...Read more

What is the best fertility drug for polycystic ovarian syndrome? Note: I have been taking metformim 500mg x3 daily, without success. Thank you.
My guess!: No specific diet has been matched against another and published in a refereed medical or scientific publication. However, Insulin resistance is negated by a low carb diet. Insulin resistance increases with obesity (apple type) and causes metabolic syndrome. This in turn potentiates polycystic ovarian syndrome. Adiposity increases estrogen in men and decreases testosterone. Protein, veggies, water! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Birth defects & ART: Conventional ivf has not been convincingly linked to birth defects worldwide. There's some evidence linking micro-injection of sperm (ivf/icsi) to a possible slight increase in birth defects (2% or so;) this has not been proven conclusively, and is still being investigated. If an increased risk really does exist, it is a small one. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Don't do it: Minomycin is a good antibiotic for moderate acne but must never be used alone. It's a good choice along with topical benzoyl peroxide. It is also pregnancy class d -- shouldn't be used during pregnancy, and in any case isn't going to help you get pregnant. It should only be used on your physician's prescription. ...Read more
I have pcos and i will be going for ovarian drilling soon after five cycles of clomid (clomiphene). What is the success rate for pregnancy with this procedure?
Drilling: In your situation, your two options are ovarian drilling or gonadotropin therapy (somewhat similar to ivf therapies). These two have similar pregnancy rates - about 55% success over 6 months, although some studies show success rates as low as 20%. Gonadotropin therapy is more time intensive and more expensive, but does not require surgery. Drilling might hasten menopause- but not definitely proven. ...Read more
Hormonal treatment: Femara (letrozole) inhibits the formation of estrogen within the endometriosis tissue. Aromatase inhibitors, formerly used to treat some breast cancer, have been successful in the treatment of endometriosis.

Ave endometriosis and pcos. Taking metformin and Clomid (clomiphene) to see if I can get pregnant winfertility treatments. Is it possible to get pregnant w/this type of medicine combo?
Safe; sometimes used: Progesterone or artificial versions (progestins) can be safely used to induce a period for women with pcos who have very few periods (less than 4 a year) or no periods. It does not improve your chances of conceiving because it induces bleeding, not ovulation (egg release). Progesterone can also be given for low Progesterone levels in the 2nd half of a cycle, or to support an early pregnancy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Am faced w/ choices of lupron (leuprolide) or surgery for endometriosis. Unable to tolorate hormone contraceptives and have gilberts syndrome. Which option is best?
Choices: Only a doctor who met and examined you can answer this. But, i recommend surgery for patients who are good candidates. Surgery is the only way to make a firm diagnosis, results are generally excellent, and though recurrences happen, they often don't. Lupron (leuprolide) can defintiely help with pain, but: no diagnosis, no fix, expensive, symptoms, and pain comes back when you discontinue. ...Read more
No pcos not diabetic TTC my doc put me on cidophage 500mg, clomid (clomiphene) 50mg and cycloprogynova does cycloprogynova and cidophage affects my pregnancy?
Which is more suitable for patient with pcos and endometriosis doing ivf? dydrogesterone or medroxyprogesterone?
Similar: I think it comes down to "what are you using them for?" in IVF. Both are synthetic progestins, both are safe with limited side effects. For regulating a cycle start there should be no difference. Some protocols use Duphaston (dydrogesterone) for luteal support in IVF, MPA (medroxy-P) would be a less good choice - although micronized progesterone is probably superior to both. ...Read more
