Fertility medicines work like natural hormones (FSH and LH) in order to stimulate ovulation in women who do not ovulate. These drugs can also stimulate extra or better quality eggs in women who already ovulate. Many kinds of fertility drugs are available. For example, clomiphene stimulates increased secretion of FSH and LH from the pituitary gland to trigger ovulation and the growth of an ovarian follicle containing an egg. Metformin is another medicine that enhances chances of ovulation when insulin resistance is the cause, usually in women diagnosed with PCOS. However, fertility drugs work as effective treatments only when ovulation disorders are to blame. Generally, the right infertility treatment in a particular case depends upon factors like cause, age, duration of infertility and personal preferences of a patient. Therefore, I advise you to consult your doctor before taking any of these fertility medicines.
