Fertility Treatment: The Success Rates of Provera

There are a number of reasons that a woman may have problems with fertility. Injuries, stress and hormonal imbalances can all cause problems with a woman's reproductive system, causing problems affecting fertility. Provera is a medication that can fight fertility problems.

 What Provera Does

Provera's generic name is medroxyprogesterone, and it is classed as a progestin. One reason some women may experience fertility problems is that a hormonal imbalance is causing excessive growth of the uterine walls, which in turn affects menstruation and ovulation. Medroxyprogesterone inhibits the growth of the uterine wall. This will cause normalization of the menstrual cycle, increasing ovulation and thus fertility. Provera also stimulates the body to produce certain hormones that will help normalize ovulation and menstruation and increase the patient's fertility.

How Provera Is Taken

Provera is a pill that you take on a regular schedule which is set by your doctor. You should take your pill at the same time every day your doctor has specified. Taking the pill at the same time every day makes it easier to remember.

Increasing Effectiveness and Minimizing Side Effects

Combining Provera with a healthy lifestyle and diet is the most effective way to increase your fertility. Reduce the stress in your life. No dietary changes are required, but it should be noted that changing to a healthy diet will make sure your body is healthy enough to support a pregnancy and will also maintain a proper balance of hormones and nutrients required to enhance fertility.

Provera is effective at increasing fertility by reducing the growth of the tissue lining the uterus. Consult your physician and pharmacist and know the schedule set for medication by these medical professionals. Ask questions if there is anything you don't understand regarding this medication.
