One of the oldest treatments for a common cause of infertility - polycystic ovary syndrome - it is also the best, I support the results of a recent study. Researchers say that clomiphene performs better than metformin for treating polycystic ovaries.
Stimulation of ovulation with the help clomiphene It seems to be the most effective treatment for polycystic ovaries. Metformin, mainly used to treat diabetes, has become very commonly used to treat polycystic ovaries, despite the fact that it was not its main action when it was discovered and tested.
Polycystic ovary syndrome is one of the most common causes of infertility.
This syndrome is actually a hormonal disorder that can interfere with ovulation when the ovary releases an egg. The ovaries can grow and develop cysts. Women with this problem may also have irregular hair or excessive hair growth on the body or face. Obesity is also common in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.
The study underlying these results included 626 women with infertility problems who were treated with metformin, clomiphene or the two drugs together for 6 months.
The women who became pregnant after this treatment were followed up until the birth or loss of pregnancy.
The birth rate of live babies by the women participating in the study who took metformin was only 7%. About 22% of women taking only clomiphene gave birth, and for those taking both drugs the rate was 27%.
The higher percentage in the case of both drugs is not significant compared to the administration of clomiphene only, which gave very good results.
Therefore, the administration of clomiphene It seems to give the best results in the case of polycystic ovary syndrome and it is advisable, in the case of such health problems, to consider the results of this study.
