Hormone treatment for involuntary childlessness

Hormone treatment can often restore fertility in the event of a disorder affecting the ovaries. All that is needed for successful treatment is the ability of the ovaries for follicle maturation. In women who have reached the menopause, this ability has come to an end.

It may be possible to use anti-oestrogens to stimulate the release of gonadotrophins from the pituitary glands.

The drug is usually taken between day 5 and day 9 of the cycle, while sometimes treatment is also given between day 3 and day 7 of the menstrual cycle. The regime can be adjusted to the woman’s individual menstrual cycle. With a short cycle, stimulation will begin earlier, while it is also possible to extend stimulation beyond the usual 5-day interval.

Any hormone stimulation of the ovaries should be monitored by ultrasound to measure the follicles as stimulation may produce multiple follicles   and thus unwanted multiple pregnancies. .
