When do we use hormone therapy?

Hormone therapy is always used in connection with IVF/ICSI treatment, as we want more eggs to be formed than the one you usually develop each month. Hormone stimulation is also used in most cases of insemination.

If you are to have your thawed, fertilised eggs transferred back to your uterus, we use hormones to optimise the endometrium so that it is ready to receive the egg that is to be transferred.

Optimal balance with new method

Our specialists always focus on ensuring the best possible conditions for achieving pregnancy with optimal hormone stimulation, while minimising the risk of hyperstimulation syndrome, which is a complication in which the woman forms too many egg sacs.

Based on three years’ research, our Head of Clinic, M.D. Consultant Negjyp Sopa, has developed a model that minimises cases of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) significantly in women with a high risk of being overstimulated.

Side effects of hormone stimulation

Hormone stimulation may be connected with side effects and risks. You will receive information about this at the preliminary consultation.

The doctor will draw up an individual plan for you and select the most suitable hormone preparation and dose for your treatment. Your doctor will check your development with ultrasound scanning during the course of treatment and adjust the dose if needed.

Possible side effects of hormone therapy may be slight headache, fatigue and bloating.

Hormone stimulation risk

In hormone stimulation, there is a risk of OHSS when more than 20 follicles are formed in a treatment. The risk is lower in connection with fewer follicles. We try to avoid this complication by stimulating individually and carefully. Some women nevertheless react unexpectedly and strongly to hormone stimulation.

OHSS symptoms may be extended abdomen, abdominal pain, nausea/vomiting, increased tendency to breathlessness or urination difficulties. OHSS most often requires treatment.
