Prescription brand Prenatal Vitamins, that contain DHA, should be started when you are beginning the process to actively conceive. They should continue throughout the pregnancy. We would be more than happy to write you a prescription.

This is a powder that is mixed with 8oz of water and to be taken twice a day.  It can be purchased online at www.pregnitude,com.  This is to be STOPPED with pregnancy.

This is to be STOPPED with pregnancy.

Calcium 1000-1300mg per day orally.  This is to be STOPPED with pregnancy.

400-800IU per day orally.  This is to be STOPPED with pregnancy.

(Only to be taken if recommended by Dr. Miller) 25mg tablet to be taken orally 3 times a day.  This is to be STOPPED with Stimulation Medications.

Baby Aspirin 81 mg Tablets should be started when advised by Dr. Miller. It is used as a minimal blood thinner and potentially increase uterine blood flow.

Parlodel or Cabergoline should be started when advised by Dr. Miller. It is an oral medication used to reduce the amount of prolactin released by the pituitary.The brand name for bromocriptine is Parlodel® and the brand namefor cabergoline is Dostinex®. . Repeat prolactin levels should be checked after being on the full dose of medication for 4 weeks. 

Can be dispensed and taken via Intra muscular injections administered daily. Progesterone may also be administered through a vaginal gel, suppository or in a pill. Progesterone is used to help prepare the uterine lining and to help support the pregnancy.

Prednisone is used to treat positive anti-sperm antibodies and in the treatment of other auto-immunes deficiencies. Prednisone helps to decrease antibody response.

Lovenox  Injections are used to help prevent micro-clotting associated with Thrombophelia and or auto-immune deficiencies.

They are used to prevent the risk of infection. Typically Dr. Miller will treat both partners.

A steroid to assist with pre-embryo implantation. 

16mg tablets are started the day after oocyte (egg) retrieval. They are used to diminish the body’s antibody response.

An injection given just below the skin (subcutaneous injection) that contains equal parts of FSH and LH (luteinizing hormone), given to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple eggs during one cycle. Common hMG medications include: Menopur® and Repronex®. 

FSH- An injection given just below the skin (subcutaneous injection) that bypasses the hypothalamus and pituitary glands to directly stimulate follicle growth in the ovaries. Common FSH medications include: Bravelle®, Follistim®, and Gonal-F®.

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) also known as Novrel, Ovridel, Pregnyl is given when advised by Dr. Miller to “trigger”. It is given at a specific time to cause the exact timed release (ovulation) of the oocytes (eggs) from the follicles. It allows the oocytes in the follicles to undergo the final maturation process before being released from the ovaries. It also gives us a specific window of when ovulation will occur so that timed intercourse, IUI or Transvaginal Aspiration of Eggs can be performed.

injections used to trigger ovulation. Often used when other medications have been taken to induce ovulation. Common HCG medications include: Pregnyl® or Novarel®  HCG Booster can be used in the leutal phase of the cycle to enhance progesterone production.

Metformin or Glucophage is a medication that is started after confirming insulin resistance. This is done by a simple fasting blood test that measures the ratio of glucose to insulin. It is taken daily as directed and is discontinued when you become pregnant. It helps to allow for better stimulation with fertility medications.  It has also shown to regulate ovulation.

Lupron® is an injection given below the skin, subcutaneous injection.  These medications are used to enable the body to produce a higher number of quality eggs.These medications are also designed to prevent the mid-cycle hormonal surge which can result in a cancelled cycle.

Ganirelix acetate is an injectable competitive gonadotropin-releasing hormone antagonist (GnRH antagonist). It is primarily used in assisted reproduction to control ovulation. The drug works by blocking the action of GnRH upon the pituitary, thus rapidly suppressing the production and action of LH and FSH. Ganirelix is used in fertility treatment to prevent premature ovulation that could result in the harvesting of eggs that are too immature to be used in procedures such as in vitro fertilization

injections used to trigger ovulation. Often used when other medications have been taken to induce ovulation. Common HCG medications include: Pregnyl® or Novarel®  HCG Booster can be used in the leutal phase of the cycle to enhance progesterone production.

An oral antibiotic provided to the male partner during the female’s stimulation cycle to reduce the levels of bacteria which may be found in semen. 

Synthroid is a prescription medication that treats hypothyroidism. The active ingredient in Synthroid is called levothyroxine sodium. It is a synthetic hormone identical to thyroxine – the hormone that the thyroid gland naturally makes. Low levels of thyroid hormone can interfere with the release of an egg from your ovary (ovulation), which impairs fertility. In addition, some of the underlying causes of hypothyroidism — such as certain autoimmune or pituitary disorders — may impair fertility.

 Clomiphene stimulates the release of hormones needed to cause ovulation.

Clomiphene therapy is typically used for 5 consecutive days early in the menstrual cycle, for 3 to 6 monthly cycles. It may take several cycles to find the right dose to stimulate ovulation. After that dose is determined, a woman will take the drug for at least 3 more cycles. If she does not become pregnant after 6 cycles, it is unlikely that further clomiphene treatment will be successful.

Why It Is Used

For Women-Clomiphene may be prescribed to:

For Men- Clomiphene may be used to treat low sperm counts (oligospermia- sperm count < 15x 106/ml).

are hormones (LH and FSH) that can be given in an injection to stimulate a woman’s ovaries to produce follicles, which contain an oocyte (egg). Women who have not been able to become pregnant with clomiphene (Clomid®) may be encouraged to try gonadotropins as a next step.

Gonadotropins are two hormones, luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), which are normally produced by the pituitary gland. These hormones stimulate the ovaries to produce a follicle, which contain an egg (oocyte).

Most gonadotropin preparations used for infertility treatment are created in a laboratory (called recombinant preparations) and must be injected under the skin to be effective. For most women, a preparation containing only FSH injections is recommended. Women who do not have regular menstrual periods and who have very low levels of LH and FSH require a preparation containing both LH and FSH.
