Stimulate hormone production

Many pills and injections used to treat infertility in both men and women contain synthesized hormones or hormone-like substances. These are of a great help in re-establishing the balance between different types of hormones that influence the reproductive process. In men, the medicines are used to increase the level of testosterone, while, in women, the purpose is to stimulate the production of estrogen and progesterone.

Increase production of semen

The main cause of infertility in men is represented by the incapacity of the genitals to produce high quality semen. The medication administered in these cases stimulates the production of healthy and motile spermatozoa, sometimes also increasing the volume of the ejaculated seminal liquid.

Regulating ovulation

In women, infertility appears when the ovulation cycles are not regular or the released eggs are not completely matured. The fertility medication works on both fronts: stimulating the formation of healthy follicles and regulating the releasing intervals.

Normalize blood sugar

A high level of blood sugar may act sometimes as a cause for infertility in both men and women. In these cases, the medicine prescribed to keep the blood sugar levels under control acts as a fertility drug as well, preventing both infertility and diabetes.

Reduce the risk of miscarriage

Some of the fertility drugs benefits extend over pregnancy as well. Many of the medicines used to treat infertility in women contain vitamins and minerals very important for the normal development of the fetus. Other pills and injections administered during an IVF cycle, but also when the fertilization takes place naturally, reduce the risk of miscarriage considerably.

Improve blood flow

Fertility treatments are used not only to stimulate the activity of the reproductive organs, but also to improve blood flow. In many cases, infertility can come also as a result of a poor irrigation of the genital area, and pills are prescribed in order to solve this problem.

Boost men’s libido

Most of the medication used to treat infertility in men contains substances with aphrodisiac properties. These boost the men’s libido, contributing to a considerable improvement of the sexual life of the couple.
