IVF & Progesterone
Progesterone is a hormone that is naturally produced by the ovaries and works to support pregnancy. In cases where fresh eggs were extracted from the woman, the production of multiple eggs at once and the loss of egg follicles that trigger the release of progesterone can drastically reduce the progesterone produced by the body. So, when the embryos are transferred, progesterone is prescribed as a medication to remedy and supplement the body’s decreased progesterone production. The fertility experts at Oasis will prescribe them as suppositories, gels, oral tablets or injections.
