Ovulation Induction is a simple process in which the ovaries are stimulated to release eggs using medication. This increases your chances of conception through intercourse or artificial insemination. It is beneficial for who women who do not ovulate at all or have low levels of hormones for ovulation.
Ovulation induction should be performed only after a complete and through evaluation and treatment of all underlying hormonal disorders. Prior to ovulation induction blood samples are collected to measure the hormone levels at specific stages of menstrual cycle. Also an ultrasound is carried out to see the development of follicles in the ovaries. You start taking medication from day 4 of your cycle. Blood tests are performed regularly to determine the hormone levels. Approximately around day 14 you ovulation might start. Women with abnormal menstrual cycle may have ovulation even later (than day 14). Talk to your gynecologist for further information regarding the procedure.
