Infertility Medications-Application Instruction Sheets

This section provides information on how to use some of the currently prescribed infertility medications. For each drug, there is a set of instructions that outlines how to administer the medication-this might include giving yourself an injection or applying some type of gel. You can print out each instruction sheet, as needed. For some of the more commonly used drugs, you will also find additional prescribing information.

IM = Intramuscular Injection (into a muscle)
SC = Subcutaneous Injection (under the skin)
IVa = Intravaginally (placed into the vagina)
