The infertility specialists at Noble Fertility Center in New York prescribe or administer a variety of safe and effective fertility medications that improve the results of treatments for infertility.
These fertility drugs act in different ways to promote ovulation or maintain optimal health in your reproductive organs. Dr. Chang and his staff of fertility treatment experts create a personalized fertility medication plan based on your individual needs and expectations. Here are a few of the fertility drugs we may include in your personalized fertility treatment program.
Different Types of Infertility Medications
Clomid®, Serophene®: This oral medication stimulates ovulation or triggers the development of more than one follicle; each follicle produces the hormones estrogen and progesterone and releases an egg.
Lupron®: This fertility drug suppresses natural ovulation during an IVF cycle. It works by preventing your pituitary gland from producing luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH).
Ganirelix acetate™, Cetrotide®: These drugs complement the actions of Follistim® and Gonal F®. GnRH antagonists work by preventing the premature release of the eggs from the follicles.
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG)
Novarel®, Profasi®, Pregnyl ®, Ovidrel®: This injectable hormone triggers the final stage of maturation and release of the eggs.
Human Recombinant FSH (hrFSH)
Follistim®, Gonal F®: The fertility specialists at Nobel Fertility Center administer this medication to stimulate development of your follicles.
Prometrium®, Progesterone-: Maintains the health of the endometrium, which is the mucus membrane lining the inside of your womb. Our New York infertility specialists may recommend progesterone vaginal suppositories, oil, or intramuscular injection after you have undergone intrauterine insemination, egg retrieval, or have received a donor egg or frozen embryo.
