How is it possible to improve the stimulation process and along what lines are you working in this direction?

By Juan Antonio García Velasco M.D., Ph.D. (gynecologist).
Last Update: 02/17/2022

Ovarian stimulation generates, in addition to some minor discomfort such as swelling or fluid retention, but not in an exaggerated way, some anxiety for two reasons: first, because of the fact of having to take an injection (or two) every day, and second, because of the fear of doing it right (there are many errors in the administration of the medication by the patient, which sometimes the patient is not aware of or is aware of but does not tell the doctor because of "embarrassment").

Advances in this sense are in the search for oral drugs but, for the moment, there has already been a great advance in this sense, and that is the administration of an injection whose effect lasts 7 days (Elonva) instead of the usual 24h; this reduces the number of injections and avoids the aforementioned errors.
