Ovarian Induction therapy at SCI IVF Hospital

What is Ovarian Induction?

Ovulation is the process of the release of eggs from one of the ovaries. In women, this process takes place once a month, particularly at the time of their menstrual cycle. However, in other women, the follicle that helps keep the egg in place does not mature at all. As a result, the women ovulate irregularly or never. 

Ovarian induction is a type of fertility treatment that use of injecting medications to stimulate normal ovulation. Usually, the women have to take medicine at the beginning of her menstrual cycle. Later, the body’s response to the medicine is recorded through the cycle using ultrasound. With the help of ultrasound, our professional identifies the due ovulation date and the best time for trying to conceive.

Our experts make sure the medication and its dosage are tailored effectively to suit the individual. Moreover, it is advisable to start the medications to stimulate your ovary and carry out other programs like ultrasound and blood tests as well. The fertility medications that doctors may provide you include the following:

  • Clomid or letrozole: These medications trick your pituitary gland into producing more follicle-stimulating hormone to help them mature later. The best period to takes these medicines is from day 2 to day 6 of your menstrual cycle. 
  • FSH: They are daily injections to stimulate your ovaries to produce healthy eggs with follicles and encourage them to mature. 
  • HCG: These injections are used when the eggs with follicles have matured and they trigger ovulation.
