Often, this is an ongoing process and you will likely come to rely on your pharmacist to answer many unexpected concerns.

In this section we explain the types of fertility medication (Oral and Injectable), explain the way they work and how they are administered. So that you can understand the categories of drugs and treatment options available, we have also made available an Overview of all currently available medications arranged by classification: Progesterone, GnRH Agonists, Gonadotropins, and GnRH Antagonists. Most fertility drugs are hormones that work by stimulating the female reproductive system to increase fertility.
