Omnitrope for Infertility: Can You Treat Infertility with Growth Hormone?

One of the most difficult things for any person to deal with is infertility. Not being able to conceive a child can be an extremely stressful time for both a woman and a man. Some couples have turned to the use of Omnitrope for infertility when a doctor recommends human growth hormone therapy.

Benefits of Omnitrope for fertility

When a woman is HGH deficient, the sensitivity to her ovaries to stimulation by gonadotropin is decreased. Follicular development requires a combination of growth hormone, GHRH, and IGF-1. One of these other hormones – Insulin Growth Factor 1, to be exact – needs HGH for its own production. That now makes two deficient hormones interfering with fertility.

The connection between Omnitrope and infertility is one where HGH levels are increased in order also to stimulate the production of IGF-1, making both of these hormones available in larger supply to boost follicular development, along with promoting gametogenesis and steroidogenesis.

The Role of Growth Hormone in Fertility

Part of the role played by Omnitrope for infertility is the enhancement of aromatase activity that is needed to convert androgens like testosterone into estrogen in the body. A woman needs estrogen in order to ovulate.

Other benefits of Omnitrope and infertility for women include:

  • Oocytes (eggs) are more fertile in women who have normal growth hormone levels (making them more likely to become fertilized)
  • Growth hormone accelerates the maturation process of the oocytes
  • HGH therapy with Omnitrope can help increase ovarian stimulation
  • Omnitrope HGH may help improve uterine size

Some men may also test positive for growth hormone deficiency, and if that occurs, treatment with HGH therapy may be recommended as it works in a direct and indirect manner through its connection with IGF-1 to stimulate sperm production.

Can Omnitrope Help with Infertility?

Based on the information provided in the previous section, there is a definite place for Omnitrope and infertility treatment if growth hormone deficiency is a possible cause for the inability to conceive a child.

Human growth hormone therapy has been in use for many years on women who are considered “poor responders.” What that means is that instead of being able to give an average of 12 eggs with IVF, a woman under the age of 35 might only be able to provide between 1 and 6 eggs. A woman who receives Omnitrope HGH to increase low growth hormone levels would have a better chance of providing additional eggs with higher quality.

In this scenario, live birth success rate is also improved. While HGH therapy is not the answer for everyone and some women who are provided with this treatment still are unable to become pregnant, it is an option worth trying for women who are diagnosed with low growth hormone levels when other fertility treatments have not worked.

How to Get Omnitrope for Infertility

The best way to get Omnitrope for infertility is to work closely with a doctor who specializes in the treatment of hormone deficiencies. HRT – hormone replacement therapy – specialists understand how crucial it is to keep these all-important chemical messengers in the body in balance. Often times, when one level decreases, it brings a number of other hormones right down with it.

At the same time, other chemicals can increase in direct response, such as cortisol levels rising while GH levels are declining. Cortisol is the stress hormone, and this is not something that you want increased when trying to conceive. If this situation is already causing stress, cortisol will only worsen the effect.

An HRT doctor will run a series of blood tests to rule out other possible concerns while at the same time allowing for a diagnosis of growth hormone deficiency. If this turns out to be a problem, then a prescription for Omnitrope or another preferred brand of HGH will be provided. Of course, all treatments should be in conjunction with the fertility doctor who has been treating you.
