Pills, stimulating ovulation

What medications are used to stimulate ovulation?

Keep in mind that a competent doctor in the case of the appointment of tablets, stimulating ovulation, will appoint a test for patency of the fallopian tubes. This is necessary in order to exclude ectopic pregnancy.


Treatment with this drug is prescribed for women with irregular ovulation or if it is completely absent. Patients with a diagnosis of "polycystic ovary" are also prescribed clomiphene. In some cases, when the causes of prolonged non-pregnancy are not established, this medication is also prescribed.

Clomiphene is a tablet drug whose action is based on increasing the level of hormones that stimulate the ovaries, and also contribute to the release of the oocyte. Under the influence of klofimena, the pituitary gland produces more essential hormones, preparing several mature eggs at once.

A single treatment with clomiphene is approximately 5 days. Before the onset of pregnancy there may be several cycles of treatment, but usually enough 1-2 regular cycles to start regular ovulation. In especially difficult situations, in order to restore ovulation, a course of 12 cycles is needed. In some cases, women are prescribed an additional dose of metformin, which, together with clomiphene, increases the likelihood of ovulation and pregnancy.

Typically, after treatment with clomiphene, 70% of women have ovulation, and 15% -50% have a long-awaited pregnancy. By the way, in 7% of women against the background of taking this drug, twins are born.

In order to stimulate the growth of follicles, the following drugs are also prescribed: clostilbegite, puregon, menogon.


Klostilbegit, as well as the above described preparation, stimulates the production of pituitary hormones to improve the growth of follicles and to stimulate ovulation. In addition, these tablets help to develop a hormone prolactin, on which the presence and amount of milk in the mammary gland depends.

Take clostilbegite 1 time per day for 1 piece from the 5th to the 9th day after the onset of menstruation.

But, keep in mind that this drug, unlike the previous one, can not be taken often. Moreover, and any doctor will tell you that, using clostilbegite is possible only 5-6 times during life. The fact is that the substances contained in these tablets provoke a severe depletion of the ovaries. And this, in turn, means that eggs, the number of which in each woman is limited and determined from the moment of birth, will simply be spent. And then the pregnancy will definitely not come. After all, nature is laid, that one egg, at most two, ripens in a month. In the case of the stimulation of ovulation, the number of maturing eggs at a time increases significantly.

Taking klostilbegit, it is important to monitor the endometrium, since this medicine has a bad effect on its growth. And it may be that conception will occur, but pregnancy will not persist because of the thin endometrium.


The following drug has the same effect - Puregon. He also activates the pituitary gland, stimulates the growth of follicles and makes ovulation possible. Puregon is used in the case of natural conception, and in the case of artificial insemination.


Menogon also stimulates the production of hormones FSH and LH and increases the concentration of female hormones - estrogens. This drug provokes the growth of follicles on the ovaries. Menogon, unlike klostilbegita, increases the endometrium.

Take the menopause on the second day of menstruation. As a rule, the course of treatment is 10 days. Nevertheless, the necessary number of receptions in each case should be determined by the doctor. He follows the reaction of the ovaries with the help of ultrasound and, based on his results, makes the appointment.

As a rule, after taking pills that stimulate ovulation, prescribe the intake of other medicines. This time, a course of injections of hormonal drugs containing human chorionic gonadotropin. This hormone is found in such drugs as pregnil, prophase, choragone, gonacor and others.

In fact, there are other pills that stimulate ovulation, we also named the main ones that are used most often. Women who have problems with ovulation should take note that before performing the stimulation it is necessary to perform an ultrasound examination that will allow controlling the maturation of the follicle. During the treatment, the frequency of this procedure will be 2-3 times. Thus, the doctor will be able to count the number of growing follicles, measure their diameter, and also determine the thickness of the mucous membrane of the uterus.

Each woman who dreams of becoming pregnant, drugs are selected, given the results of tests and ultrasound examinations. As statistics show, the probability of pregnancy depends on many factors. Important of them are the duration of infertility, its causes, the age of the woman.
