Can Clomid (clomiphene) raise FSH levels?

Can Clomid (clomiphene) raise FSH levels?

Yes: After taking Clomid (clomiphene) fsh levels may rise - this is the basis of the Clomid (clomiphene) challenge test (cct, also known as the ccct) which is a test of ovarian reserve or 'egg supply'. For this test you get an fsh level and Estradiol blood test on day 2 or 3, take 100 mg or two pills of Clomid (clomiphene) a day from days 5 to 9, then repeat the fsh test on day 10. Clomid (clomiphene) does not affect day 2 or 3 fsh levels though. ...Read more

What hormones are used during IVF (in-vitro fertilization)?

Effectiveness of cervadil vs pitocin (oxytocin) induction?

Effectiveness of cervadil vs pitocin (oxytocin) induction?

Depends on cervix: Before induction your current cervical exam is used as a determinant for which mode of induction. Cervidil is most likely used when the cervix is less soft, dilated, and effaced (thinned out), and more posterior, as it increases prostaglandins release to stimulate dilation, thinning and softening. Those who are already dilated and effaced benefit more from pitocin (oxytocin). ...Read more

Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (gnrh) stimulates the production what?

Good question: Gnrh would seem by its name to help release gonadotropin. And if used in a certain fashion it could cause the release of gonadotropins (lh, fsh). However when given in a shot and having a sustained effect on the pituitary, it actually suppresses the release of lh and fsh. And this aspect of the medication can be used to help in many situations. ...Read more

Can patient undergo ovulation induction using gonal f (follitropin alfa) while using HRT mainly femoston 2/10 mg?

Can patient undergo ovulation induction using gonal f (follitropin alfa) while using HRT mainly femoston 2/10 mg?

Doesn't make sense: In most cases this would not make much sense, although it could depend on 'why' and 'how' the hrt was being used. Estrogens such as in hrt are sometimes used in stimulation protocols with gonadotropins (such as gonal f, (follitropin alfa) ) an oral progestin would be an unlikely element of most protocols. ...Read more

Why bodybuilders use Clomid (clomiphene) with nolvadex for PCT?

Post "Cycle" Therapy: From what I have researched people seem to be of the belief that nolvadex is a superior anti-estrogen but clomid (clomiphene) is better at restoring testicular function so some people use both. I do not recommend any of these medications and believe old fashion exercise and natural body building without any supplemental medications is the most healthy approach! ...Read more
