LUVERIS (LUTROPIN ALPHA)

Luveris Description

Some women may find that they are not able to become pregnant when it’s time to start a family. Talk to your doctor about Luveris, a man-made version of the luteinizing hormone (LH) that is produced in the pituitary gland and is vital for regulating the function of a woman’s ovaries (or man’s testes). Once your doctor has established that the infertility lies with the woman, you will be instructed on how to properly administer Luveris and how long the expected treatment period will be.

How Luveris Can Improve Your Chance of a Pregnancy

The active ingredient in Luveris is called Lutropin Alpha and it is usually taken along with another hormone called follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). This combination works in your ovaries to increase the number of growing follicles as well as stimulate their development. The developing eggs are found within these follicles.

The FSH is also responsible for increasing estrogen production to encourage further development of the largest follicle and when the time is right, you’ll receive an injection of human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) to cause ovulation and the chance for a successful fertilization. This may be a time consuming treatment, but the end result can be amazing.

Risk Factors for Infertility

There can be several reasons for fertility problems for both sexes, so testing will be required before any treatment plans are made. As a woman, some of the problems you may encounter include: declining egg quality as you age; endometriosis in which your uterine lining is growing outside your uterus; a blocked fallopian tube; or a hormone imbalance that interferes with ovulation.

Men may also experience problems with an obstruction of the tubes that transport sperm; poor sperm motility; low or no sperm count; or abnormally shaped sperm; and a small percentage of women that may be allergic to your sperm causing them to produce antibodies that kill the sperm cells.

Before You Take Luveris

Make sure you have confirmation that you are not pregnant before you start taking Luveris. Tell your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have, and discuss any OTC or Rx drugs you are taking, including herbal and vitamin supplements so your doctor can determine if taking Luveris will cause any unintended side effects or change the efficacy of the hormones you will be injecting.

Luveris Precautions and recommendations

Your chances are increased for having a multiple pregnancy with the use of Luveris so you must discuss this with your doctor and partner as it can pose a higher health risk for you and the babies. Be prepared to undergo regular blood tests and ultrasound exams while on Luveris.

You may also be asked to keep a daily record of your temperature as well. If you are not comfortable administering Luveris injections, you will need to make daily trips to your healthcare facility or have your partner learn how to give the shots.
