30 to 40% of infertile women have problems with ovulation. An egg has to be released from the ovary each month in the middle of the cycle to have the opportunity to be fertilized in the tube and subsequently implant in the uterus to develop into a pregnancy. Ovulation can be induced by a variety of different medications.
You won’t be able to get pregnant while you’re taking birth control pills for PCOS. But if you need help ovulating so that you can become pregnant, certain medicines may help.
Clomiphene is an anti-estrogen drug that you take at the beginning of your cycle. If clomiphene doesn’t help with ovulation, you may be prescribed the diabetes drug metformin. If clomiphene and metformin don’t work, your doctor may prescribe a medication containing a follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and a luteinizing hormone (LH). You get this medicine in a shot. One other drug that helps with ovulation is letrozole. It’s sometimes used when other medications aren’t effective.
