Are There Fertility Drugs For Men?
There are not too many similarities between men and woman. That is, until you talk about fertility drugs. Just like woman need the right amount of hormones to ovulate regularly, men also need the right hormones and amount of hormones for optimal fertility and healthy sperm production. Fertility drugs that help women stimulate ovulation also help stimulate sperm production for men. See, we do have something in common!
One thing to keep in mind is that although there are fertility drugs for men, they don’t work as well for men as they do for women. On top them not working as well, the FDA has not approved most fertility drugs for men. This is not to say that a fertility specialist or urologist cannot prescribe fertility drugs for men. They can and do.
There is still not much information on the effects of fertility drugs on men. What has been researched and tested is that fertility drugs in men can help regulate certain hormone imbalances. If your hormones are not producing the correct amounts, this can lead to issues with sperm production. So, fertility specialists treat men for hormonal imbalances with fertility drugs.
Common Fertility Drugs For Men
Clomiphene citrate tells the pituitary gland to make luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone. These two hormones tell the testicles to produce testosterone and promote healthy sperm production. The common brand name for clomiphene citrate is Clomid.
HCG or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin
HCG alerts the testes to produce testosterone and sperm. In women, HCG is the hormone produced during pregnancy. This is what is detected in most pregnancy tests.
Should You Be Taking Clomid or HCG?
It all depends. After a careful examination by your fertility specialist or urologist, he or she will determine the best treatment for your situation. If your blood test comes back showing a hormonal imbalance, your doctor might prescribe a fertility drug depending on your diagnosis.
How Long Do I Take Fertility Drugs?
It all depends on your individual cases and diagnosis but a common time frame is anywhere from 3-6 months and sometimes up to a year. For Clomid, one pill is usually taken per day for 3-6 months. In my case, my doctor wanted me on Clomid for 6 months to one year. I had to stop after a month due to the side effects which I’ll talk about in another blog post. If you are on a cycle of HCG, you might have 2-3 injections per week for six months or so.
What Are The Success Rates For Fertility Drugs For Men?
There is no guarantee that fertility drugs will work for men. It’s on a case by case basis. What works for one guy might not work for another. Getting checked out by a fertility specialist is your first step in the process to see if fertility drugs are right for you.
Side Effects of Fertility Drugs For Men
In men, Clomid can cause temporary blurred vision, breast enlargement and tenderness, mood swings, hot flashes and weight gain.
Cost of Fertility Drugs For Men
