In what follows, we will tell you more about the 5 most widespread prescription medicines used to regulate the ovulatory cycle and facilitate conception.


The most widespread fertility drug, Clomid is used to treat female infertility, if it is caused by ovulation disorders (and not by the blockage of the fallopian tubes). Compared to other medication of this type, Clomid is quite cheap and versatile, being effective even in treating patients suffering from polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Clomid side effects are relatively mild as well, similar to premenstrual or early pregnancy symptoms.

Gonal F

Gonal F injections contain Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) and are used to stimulate the ovaries and induce the production of eggs. Gonal F is recommended for women who are resistant to Clomid, and it is frequently prescribed in cases of male factor infertility as well, if the cause is the low sperm count of the male partner caused by low hormone levels. Gonal comes in the form of pen injections, simple to use even in self treatment.


Containing Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG), this drug is most frequently used in combination with other drugs to induce ovulation, stimulate the activity of the ovaries and facilitate the release of mature and healthy eggs.


Another drug that can be used by both male and female patients, Menogon is administered in the form of intramuscular or subcutaneous injections. It contains both follicle stimulating and luteinizing hormone and it is known to induce sperm production in men and egg production in women.


This medication contains Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone (GnRH), and it is used to stimulate the activity of the pituitary gland responsible for releasing two of the hormones that are the most important for conception: the follicle-stimulating hormone and the luteinizing hormone.

Medical experts very frequently prescribe these medicines to restore the health of the female menstrual cycle, so, with these drugs, fertility success rates can be considerably improved. What every woman suffering from an ovulation disorder must know is that the prescription and the subsequent administration of any of the medicines mentioned above must be preceded by complex and thorough medical investigation to map the exact nature of the fertility problem and to be able to address the issue efficiently.
