Fertility drugs

Although gonadotrophins and anti-oestrogens increase the risk of multiple pregnancy, appropriate administration can greatly minimise these risks. A suitable protocol should include ensuring the patient understands the risks, minimising the dosage and careful monitoring.

Anti-oestrogen drugs (Clomid)

When anti-oestrogens are offered, information about the link between the drugs and the risks of multiple pregnancy should be given. Dosage should be minimised and monitoring offered.  More about anti-oestrogen drugs>>

Hormone treatment
