Around the time of follicular punctue
an antibiotic is administered to keep the risk of infection as low as possible, mainly to prevent during embryo transfer the “pushing upwards” into the uterine cavity of any germs that might be present.
After follicular puncture and subsequent embryo transfer corpus luteum
insufficiency naturally occurs and you are therefore required to take progesterone. The intake should be continued until the fetal heart beat is detectable by ultrasound. Then the intake of progesterone should be continued by vaginal tablets until the 12th week of pregnancy. In some cases a prolonged intake of progesterone may be appropriate. If applicable, please discuss this medication individually with your gynecologist.
Additionally, estrogen in form of tablets should be taken for a certain period of time (even though the estrogen levels are naturally elevated following stimulation). This is the only way of ensuring MAXIMUM SUCCESS.
Patients suffering from thyroid hypofunction should take thyroid medication in form of tablets (Eltroxin, L-Thyroxin, Euthyrox) throughout the period of pregnancy (Details are to be discussed with your treating gynecologist).
It is possible that you will be asked to take additional medication to reduce the risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (Clexane s.c. , Parlodel).
Other medication may be prescribed on an individual basis (Cortisol, Thrombo ASS, Metformin).
Details of medication are to be found in written form on the information sheet and on the treatment schedule which will be handed out to the couple.
