Metrogen Fertility Drug
Fertility drug: Fertility drug is a very non-specific and inexact term. One good definition I like, fertility drugs are used to increase female fertility by stimulating a woman's ovaries to recruit greater number and/or quality of oocytes (eggs) for help conceiving. Drugs like Clomiphene citrate and the gonadotropins are in this group. Some drugs are used for fertility, but are not strictly fertility drugs. ...Read more

Has anyone studied longterm effects of all the types of fertility drug on the children created? They are nearly 30, right?
Sort of: I think the first baby from in vitro is about 32 now. She has had a child of her own. Pregnancies created from fertility treatments are at slightly higher risk for things like pre-eclampsia and preterm delivery. Therefore the babies may have some problems related to prematurity. Other than that, most think they are healthy. ...Read more
Very helpful: Femara or Letrozole is an oral ovulation induction medication. It works sometimes when Clomid (clomiphene) doesn't. It also helps pregnancies to occur when Clomid (clomiphene) fails. It seems to be very helpful especially in patients with pcos. The pregnancy rates are similar to Clomid (clomiphene) but the side effects are less and the multiple pregnancies seem to be also less. ...Read more

There: There is no evidence of any means to increase the chance of twins. Having twins is influenced by genetics. Older woman also have a higher chance of having twins. Fertility drugs do increase the risk of twins. Twin pregnancies are fraught with complications and are considered high risk. A woman age 40 will most likely be able to have two successful pregnancies. ...Read more

FSH Injections, IVF: If Clomid (clomiphene) alone does not work, adding IUI (intrauterine insemination) can improve Clomid (clomiphene) pregnancy rates. The next step after that would be to take fsh or injectable fertility drugs. Using these drugs in an ivf cycle is safest, but injections can also be combined with iui. Please speak with your doctor about the pros and cons of these options in your situation. Good luck! ...Read more

OPKs: You might want to try repeating your pregnancy test in a few days or doing a serum (blood) test. I would also recommend using OPKs (ovulation prediction kits the next 3 cycles) to see if ovulating. Most OB's and fertility specialists would appreciate having that info before you start meds and it may be that you aren't getting the day right. Find these next to pregnancy tests. ...Read more
Hi. How can I get pregnant with twins. Is it fertility drug helpful. Iam breastfeeding as well.? could I be pregnant and have a regular period?
Twins are more risky: Also, it is impossible to have true menstrual period bleeding and be pregnant at the same time. Thus, one or the other must not be true. The question is, of course, which one? The solution is easy. Presuming no more sexual activities since after these concerns, if the next menstrual period comes in a few weeks, then there is no pregnancy; or if a pregnancy test is positive, then a baby is coming. ...Read more
