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

Evista (raloxifene) estrogen receptor for uterine cancer?

Unclear Question?: These are somewhat unrelated questions which makes it difficult for me to address your question. Evista (raloxifene) is not used for treating cancer...It is sued for treatment/prevention of osteoporosis. Estrogen receptors are specialised protein receptors found in breast cancer.Uterine cancer has little bearing on either of the two references you have listed. ...Read more

Clomid (clomiphene) is an estro receptor.Brain needs estrogen surge to release lh.Which means ppl on Clomid (clomiphene) don't have LH surge?How egg burst out?

Got confused?: You are getting yourself confused. Clomid (clomiphene) is not an 'estro receptor' at all; it is mainly an estrogen receptor antagonist, but it has pro-estrogenic actions in some tissues and anti-estrogenic actions in others. Women on Clomiphene do mostly have an lh surge; not surging means the Clomiphene dose was likely too low. ...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

I have been fortunate to have reasonable success with FTM and MTF. ...Read more
