Ovidrel review

Ovidrel is a medication administered to women with fertility disorders. This medication helps in producing mature eggs for fertilization.

Ovidrel is injected in order to help women get pregnant, usually right after the patient is treated with follicle stimulating hormones.

The standard dosage is usually 250 mcg per day after the last treatment of follicle stimulating hormones. The dosage may be changed by the doctor depending on the patient's condition.

For a missed dose, contact your doctor to get a new dosing schedule.

If you are administering the medication yourself, read carefully the instructions included in the package or follow the instructions of your doctor. It is also important to clean your hands thoroughly before handling the medication and its packaging. If you notice any particles or discoloration, consult your doctor and do not use the medication for the meantime.

Minor side effects may occur when using Ovidrel. Some of the most common side effects include emesis, wamble and skin irritation at the area where the medication is injected. There are also serious side effects such as dark urine, decreased amount of urine, stomach pain, swelling of the legs, diarrhoea, weight gain, difficulty in breathing and vaginal bleeding.

If any of the above mentioned side effects occur, it is important to seek medical attention immediately.

Before using Ovidrel, you must first consult a doctor. Inform your doctor if you are using non-prescribed or prescribed medications including herbal medicines and vitamins.

This medication may affect the results of certain laboratory tests such as pregnancy tests and hormone level tests so it is important to inform the laboratory personnel that you are using the medication.

Those who have adrenal gland or thyroid disorders, ovarian cysts, pituitary gland tumor, unusual vaginal bleeding and tumor of the female reproductive organ should not use Ovidrel. You must also inform the doctor if you have a history of liver disorder, allergies and other health disorders that may interrupt the effectiveness of the medication.

While undergoing treatment, if you become pregnant, it is best to inform your doctor. In this case your doctor may advise you to stop using the medication to avoid the risk to the unborn child.

There is no clinical test that can prove if Ovidrel is passed through breast milk during breast feeding. To be safe, you must consult your doctor if you plan to breast feed a baby.

Ovidrel is a prescribed medication and should not be shared with others even with the same health problems. While undergoing treatment, you must religiously follow the scheduled appointments with your doctor and undergo all necessary laboratory tests and medical exams. This will help identify if the medication is working well.

Store the medication in a safe place away from children's reach.
