No, it is not possible naturally. However, certain hormone drugs can influence the hormonal levels in women and help control the menstrual cycle. In this sense, we can find the following medications:

  • Contraceptives: Composed of estrogen and progesterone, which act by inhibiting ovulation and preventing pregnancy.
  • Gonadotropins: Used to cause ovarian stimulation in patients who undergo fertility treatment.
  • Estrogen patches & progesterone pessaries: Used to prepare the endometrial lining during a replacement cycle in IVF patients.
