In the past, there was a concept of large families with many siblings, so the term infertility was not known to all but it has some existence. A woman after trying for one year not able to get pregnant may be suffering from infertility. Also if a woman gets pregnant but somehow if she is not able to stay pregnant, then we can call her as infertile. The infertility is the most upsetting experience in any one’s life. The experience of infertility will increase the anxiety and depression in any women’s life who is reported as infertile. But due to the advance research in medical science married couples are now getting a ray of hope. IVF or commonly known as In vitro Fertilization is a new procedure, which is giving a real hope to those couples who are desperate for their own babies. With the help of affordable fertility drugs, the infertile woman can conceive the child. Lupron is one of the gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist (GnRH agonist) shot, which is giving that ray of hope to those couple’s life. During IVF treatments this drug is used to control the ovulation process so that the eggs can be released during the right time.
The Lupron drug is prescribed by the doctor not only for infertility problems, but it is also sometimes used for treating men cancer, ovarian cancer, breast cancer. If a woman is suffering from uterine fibroids or if a child is experiencing late sexual development or those who are transgendered, may take this medicine if the doctor prescribed it. According to studies, it is also proved that Lupron can preserve fertility during the treatments of chemotherapy. Lupron shot is used to stop the flow of hormone signals in the brain, which will control the creation of estrogen hormone in the female body and the testosterone hormone in the male body. When the hormone is injected in the female body, it will stimulate the ovaries which help to produce many eggs without ending the cycle too early. Later the mature eggs are removed through a process called as transvaginal aspiration. On the other hand, male sperms are collected through masturbation and the collected eggs are then placed in the sperms for fertilization. One or more embryos are transferred into the female’s uterus after the fertilization occurs, and hope for at least one successful implantation.
