Depending on the reason for your infertility issues, prescription drugs may offer a safe and non-invasive solution. That’s especially true if you ovulate irregularly or not at all due to an imbalance of hormones. Fertility medications can replace or regulate your hormones to stimulate the ovaries to ovulate. Once an egg is released on a regular basis, many women can get pregnant with no further treatment.
Fertility specialists in the Sutter Health network with advanced training in reproductive endocrinology utilize a number of medically proven hormone medications to assist women in getting pregnant. They will select the appropriate drug for you only after conducting a thorough medical exam and reviewing all necessary diagnostic tests.
Once your doctor prescribes the appropriate medication, his or her staff will train you on the exact times and method to take the drug so you receive the very best possible results. Some medications can be ingested orally, while others require injection. Our fertility center staff members also can help with other aspects of infertility treatment, including lifestyle adjustments, emotional support and assistance with insurance issues.
