Buy Luveris Medication 75 iu for Injections for IVF Treatment

 

What is Luveris?

 

It is a powder for hormonal injection containing lutropin alpha, which is a recombinant luteinizing hormone (LH). This gonadotropin treats female infertility by helping to regulate ovulation, releasing a mature egg from the ovaries so it can potentially be fertilized, and by helping to release the hormone progesterone to support pregnancy. Luteinizing hormone also plays a role in male fertility, stimulating the function of the testes to support sperm production.

 

Why do doctors prescribe this medication?

 

Doctors may prescribe this medication to women who have infertility due to a luteinizing hormone (LH) deficiency. In these cases, the hormone can help stimulate the release of a mature egg from the ovaries. Doctors do not prescribe this injection to women who are infertile due to primary ovarian failure. Luteinizing hormone injections like Luveris are sometimes also prescribed to treat infertility in men, delayed puberty in males or females, or hypogonadism.

 

How does the drug work?

 

The drug contains a luteinizing hormone similar to what is normally found in the body. This hormone normally helps regulate menstruation and sexual function, and low levels of this hormone can cause infertility in women. The injection works by supplementing the body's supply of LH, helping to restore it to more normal levels. The LH in Luveris helps to stimulate the release of a mature egg from the ovaries. Once an egg is released, it can potentially be fertilized. Doctors usually prescribe Luveris 75 iu along with a human follicle-stimulating hormone (hFSH) to stimulate follicles to develop, which can then produce an egg. Luteinizing hormone can also stimulate the production of the hormone progesterone, which helps support the early stages of pregnancy.

 

When and how to take

 

Your fertility doctor will give you instructions on how and when to take this medication. Your dosage may be personalized based on your hormone levels and your response to the treatment. You will usually take this injection at the same time as your follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) injection and you will usually not start your human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) injections until one day after you have finished your LH and FSH injections. You may be instructed to take the medication daily for up to 14 days. Typically, you will inject its subcutaneously, which is under your skin, in your abdomen or upper thigh area. You may want to change the injection site each time to reduce irritation. First, allow the Luveris powder and the mixing solution come to room temperature, then mix them together and gently swirl, not shake, the solution to allow the powder to dissolve completely. Before injecting its, clean the injection site with an alcohol swab. Your doctor will usually recommend you have sexual intercourse daily, starting the day before you start your hCG injections, which will usually be the last day of your Luveris injections.

 

Side effects

 

The most common negative effects may include

 

  • Redness and pain at the injection site
  • Mild nausea
  • Tiredness
  • Headache

 

Seek medical attention if these side effects persist or worsen. Seek medical attention immediately if you experience severe side effects like

 

  • Unusual vaginal bleeding
  • Bloating
  • Pain or swelling in the pelvic area
  • Sudden or severe headaches
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Vision changes or slurred speech
  • Weakness on one side of the body
  • Pain or swelling in the calf muscles
  • Swollen ankles, hands, or feet

 

A serious allergic reaction to this medication is rare, but seek medical attention immediately if you have symptoms of an allergic reaction, like

 

  • Trouble breathing
  • Severe dizziness
  • Rash, and itching or swelling of the face, tongue, or throat

 

The injection could also cause a medical condition called ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) during treatment or one or two weeks after the last injection. Rarely, OHSS could cause fluid to build up in the stomach, chest, and heart area suddenly, so seek medical attention immediately if you experience side effects like

 

  • A decrease in the amount of urine
  • Sudden or rapid weight gain
  • Severe pain and swelling in the pelvic area
  • Severe nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea

 

These may not be all the possible unwanted effects.

 

Precautions

 

Once you have mixed your Luveris solution, use it immediately and do not store the solution for future use. Always keep this medication and needles out of the reach of children and safely dispose of all needles. Do not use it if you are pregnant, and if you are breastfeeding, consult your doctor. The drug may increase the chance of multiple births, such as twins, which is a high-risk pregnancy. Store the medication either at room temperature or in a refrigerator, away from moisture, light, and heat, but do not freeze this fertility drug.

 

Other medication prescribed with it

 

Your fertility doctor may prescribe the luteinizing hormone (LH) Luveris along with a follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), such as Gonal-F, to stimulate follicle growth and maturity, and a human chorionic gonadotropin (htCG), such as Pregnyl, to stimulate the release of an egg. You may also use this medicine along with a fertility monitor and ovulation tests to determine the best time to conceive.

 

What is an LH deficiency?

 

A luteinizing hormone (LH) deficiency is usually present along with a follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) deficiency since they are both secreted by the same cells in the pituitary gland. An LH deficiency can be caused by either a problem with the pituitary gland itself or a problem with the hypothalamus, which sends signals to the pituitary gland. When men or women have an LH deficiency, they may experience delayed puberty, reproductive abnormalities, and hypogonadism, which is when the ovaries in women or the testes in men do not function properly, causing infertility among other things. Supplementing the amount of LH in the body can help to restore fertility and reduce other symptoms of an LH deficiency.
