I'm reading a memoir, 'Bittersweet' written by Matt McAllester.

<In vitro fertilization often requires a woman to take lots of
hormones and drugs whose names are hard to keep track of
if you're not personally taking them but whose effects seem to be,
more or less, universal.

It means....The drugs' effects seem to be strong??

    The effects of the hormones and drugs seem to be more or less universal -- I read universal to mean they affect virtually everyone taking them, not just some people.
