Will Hormone Treatments increase Your Chances of Getting Pregnant?

Will Hormone Treatments increase Your Chances of Getting Pregnant?

Hi and welcome to Fertility TV.  I’m Dr. Marc Sklar, the Fertility Expert and I specialize in natural fertility.  I work with couples from all over the world through my online programs and here locally in San Diego in my clinics to help patients get pregnant naturally.

In this episode of Fertility TV, we’re going to be talking about can hormonal treatments and hormones improve or increase your chances of conception.  At the end of this video stay tuned so you can get the link to my fertility quiz to find out how fertile you are and here we go.

Can hormone treatments improve or increase my chances of conception? 

The answer is two-fold, it’s yes and it’s no.  I know that might sound confusing. 

So statistically the answer is yes, hormones can increase your chances of conception and they do this by allowing your ovaries to produce more eggs or more follicles so that you can have multiple eggs and potentially have a higher chance of conception.  But the answer is no because it also depends on you as the individual, your overall medical history and if you want to use hormone treatments.  So there’s two methods or two answers and there’s no right or wrong answer to this.  So as I said, statistically it does…the evidence does point to being yes, but it all depends on the type of medication and if it’s appropriate for you.

So one thing to recognize is once you start to incorporate any medication or pharmaceutical medication, typically there are side effects that can occur and that you need to be aware of.  Aside from increasing your follicle count and your egg growth, that can overdo it as well, so that can cause a lot of discomfort, a lot of side effects both physically and emotionally, so it’s not for everybody.

And then second, it really depends on the medication you’re using, some medication will cause more side effects, others won’t, and some medications like Klome with actually have a different side effect, yes they’re improving or increasing your ovarian stimulation and egg production but they’re also can thin your endometrial lining which is counter-intuitive and productive to implantation.  So it really just depends on the medication your needs, and also lastly like if this something that you really want to do. I have plenty of patients who are not interested in medication they just want to approach things naturally, and so that’s completely fine, actually it’s my preference, and so those methods would not be appropriate for them.  So the bottom line really is is that you need to decide if hormone medication, hormone stimulation of your ovaries is appropriate for you, one, if you want to deal with the potential side effects; and two, if it’s something that you want to try at all.

Now there are some cases, so…where it is appropriate and necessary, so if you are considering going through insemination, IUI, or IVF, then certainly that would be a time where we do need to stimulate your ovaries in some fashion and in some way, but even then you potentially have some options in terms of what medication is used.

So hopefully that information was useful to you. Now what I want you to do is click on the link take you to my fertility quiz which will give you some information about how fertile you are.
