Drugs Used in IVF Treatment

Drugs Used in IVF Treatment

During IVF treatment, the patient is always at the center of the treatment. The correct use of the patient's medications during the treatment process positively affects the success of the treatment.

In their natural months, women develop and lay an ovo each month. The goal of IVF treatment is to obtain a large number of follicles (ovos). For this purpose, in in vitro fertilization, as in other diseases, patients are not "real patients" but they have to use many drugs during the treatment process.

One of the issues that patients are most worried about during the treatment process is the use of drugs. Patients may be worried such as "If I miscalibrate the drug doses, apply them to the wrong location, or if my treatment is canceled for these reasons". Because, we want the patients to give them self ovo-growing injections during ovulation induction (ovulation follow-up and treatment) lasting 10-14 days. Of course, this worries them. The most important thing to be done in order to eliminate the concerns is to inform the patient in detail.

Drugs used in IVF treatment have temporary side effects. The ovo injection can cause slight irritation at the injection site. Breast tenderness, inguinal pain and emotional tenderness are rarely seen. These are all spontaneous, transient effects.

Drugs used in IVF treatment may cause a few pounds of weight gain due to water retention in the body. However, it does not make a permanent weight gain as long as the appetite is paid attention.

In patients with high ovo reserves, a condition called OHSS (overexcitation of ovaries syndrome) may arise due to ovarian overexpression. Today, even in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome who are most prone to overstimulation syndrome, this risk is almost zeroed by treatment by our experienced physicians. In these patients, the appropriate protocol, the use of appropriate stimulant drug dose, the use of appropriate cracking injections and more than 15 ovos are collected, no fresh transfer, all embryos are a preferred way of freezing. After the patient's ovaries are restored, frozen embryos are thawed and transferred to the patient. Thus, the patient is protected from severe OHSS. Since we have a very successful embryo freezing program, we can offer high live birth rates with this approach.
