Infertility in Women
Often, ovulation issues or ovulation dysfunction can be corrected by carefully discovering the underlying problem and fixing it. Thyroid, pituitary and adrenal problems must be sought out and corrected as needed. In other circumstances including PCOS, early menopause, and advanced age, women may need medications to help them ovulate more normally in order to get pregnant.
Using medications to stimulate normal egg ripening and ovulation is Dr. Neil Goodman and Dr. Hara Berger's expertise. Ovulation medications include clomiphene and letrozole which are taken by mouth as well as injected medications such as FSH hormone injections. Often these treatments are combined with intrauterine insemination (IUI) to place the sperm directly into the uterus through a thin tube. The type and combination of medications and treatment will depend on the underlying problems and individual circumstances.
