Fertility Drugs and Multiple Births

Do fertility drugs cause multiple births? Find out your chances of having twins by taking various fertility drugs.

As fertility issues have recently become increasingly common, couples confronted with them have resorted to various solutions. When natural methods do not work, women opt for fertility drugs or ART (Assisted Reproduction Technology) in order to increase their chances of becoming mothers. It is true that women who use this kind of treatment are more likely to get pregnant, but at the same time they might encounter multiple births. Nowadays, due to advanced fertility treatments, including fertility drugs, one in 32 births is multiple. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Generally, these specific drugs are designed to improve the ovulation process, but there are variations regarding the effects depending on the nature and purpose of the drug.

Clomiphene Citrate

Clomiphene citrate is one of the drugs that stimulate the brain hormones in order to have one or more eggs discharged every month. While the drug has a high success rate, it also involves a chance of 10 percent of giving birth to twins; also, women may conceive triplets or more children, sporadically. Clomiphene citrate is available under the “Clomid” or “Serophene” brands.

Gonadotropin

On the other hand, human chronic gonadotropin, also known as gonadotropins is a hormone which directly stimulates the ovaries so as they can form eggs. Because of the direct stimulation, the risk of giving birth to twins or more babies is increased, compared to clomiphene. To be more specific, 10 to 40 percent of the women who use gonadotropins get multiple pregnancies. The gonadotropin can be found in pharmacies as “Ovidrel”, “Novarel”, “Pregnyl” and “Profasil”.

Human Menopausal Gonadotropin (hMG)

Human Menopausal Gonadotropin (hMG) is a drug designed to be injected in order to treat irregular ovulations. It is used in the case of women who do have pituitary gland issues. Specifically, the drug stimulates the follicle releasing and while this process improves ovulation, more follicles means in many cases, twins, triplets or more children. A similar effect is produced by the follicle-stimulating hormone. The hMG is known under the “Pergonal”, “Repronex” and “Metrodin” brand names.

Advanced Reproduction Technology

Additionally to the drugs, there is the advanced reproduction technology that has a major role in increasing the chances of a woman to get pregnant with more than one baby. To be more accurate, the doses of the medication a woman takes in order to induce multiple pregnancy can be monitored and at the same time, the modern technology in the specialized clinics can rapidly detect if the internal processes of the body are affected by the drugs. Hence, there does not exist the risk of the mother to be harmed and also the babies are not born premature or with malformations, but everything goes smoothly.

All in all, in order to induce multiple births, women simply have to take fertility treatment, as it will cause the ovaries to release more eggs, which automatically means more chances to bring twins or more babies to the world. This is an ardent desire of many couples nowadays and thanks to the development of medicine, it is now possible without involving other risks than the natural ones.

    By reading everyones comments it gives me some hope. My question for you doctor is can I still take fertibella & it still be effective to me if my period is very irregular? Dec. of 2011 I had my last period. January 2012, and February I still haven’t gotten it. Would I still be able to take it? Also will this drug cause multiple births?

    Fertibella can help remedy your period irregularity problems for it is specifically designed to stimulate ovulation by regulating hormones and normalizing menstrual cycles. It has been proven effective in helping women overcome a wide variety of fertility problems. Fertibella can be used by any woman wishing to boost her fertility and increase her chances of conceiving at the earliest possible time. The likelihood of having multiples is possible with Fertibella, but this will still depend on other factors, such as genetic predisposition, maternal age, and so forth. Although Fertibella is a safe and all natural fertility supplement, it is still recommended to consult your doctor first before trying any fertility medications.

    Making use of sexual positions with the least probability of semen leakage, like missionary position, can help increase your chances of getting pregnant. Also remember to remain lying down for 10 to 15 minutes after intercourse, with your pelvis slightly elevated, to give the sperm a ‘head start’ towards reaching the ovum. Having a healthy lifestyle, like eating right, exercising regularly, and a minimum exposure to stress, can help boost fertility as well. A preconception visit to your doctor is also recommended in order to have you and your partner’s over-all health and fertility evaluated and for you to discuss and explore your options for fertility.

    Pregnyl injections contain the active ingredient chorionic gonadotrophin, which is a natural sex hormone also known as human chorionic gonadotropin or HCG. It is used for stimulating the release of eggs (ovulation) in women having treatment for infertility caused by problems with their natural ovulation. Use this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not use it in larger amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label. You will usually only need one injection of this medication. It is extremely important that you follow the directions and administer the injection at the time you are instructed to do so.

    There are no drugs that you can take that will guarantee multiple births. However, there are some fertility drugs you can try. Clomiphene works by stimulating the brain hormones in order to have one or more eggs discharged every month. Clomiphene also involves a chance of 10 percent of giving birth to twins; also, women may conceive triplets or more children, sporadically. Clomiphene citrate is available under the “Clomid” or “Serophene” brands.

    I have not been on Bc for 3 plus yrs. In the last 5 yrs I have had 2 partners. My current boyfriend, I have been with for a year n a half. And although we haven’t been trying trying, we also have not used any thing to prevent pregnancy. We are very much in love and he wants a child of his own. Where I am from it is very abnormal for a man at 28 yrs old not to have a child or more. I am 37 and kind of nervous to start over, I already have 2 children 20 & 16. I am thinking of trying these pills to help conceive. We want to get pregnant as quickly as we can, due to my age. Could someone anyone give some advice honestly on how the success rate of these pills??? Please and thanks.
