Apprehensive about taking injectable medications? We’ve got you covered.
At Marin Fertility Center, we are constantly striving to simplify treatments and minimize the amount of hormone medication used. For example, most of our patients undergoing Conventional IVF will not use more than one injection per day (a marked reduction from older treatment regimens).
The 2 general categories of injectable medicines are:
1) Gonadotropins (to stimulate the ovary to make eggs and then “trigger” the final maturation process of the eggs)
2) GnRH analogues (to prevent premature ovulation)
Online teaching is available through the Freedom Pharmacy “Medteach” website. The links are provided below. You will receive your prescription number to access the site when your medication is ordered.
Additional support is always available from our staff. For any confusion or lingering questions about medication, please have a low threshold to contact us at 415.925.9404 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
