Ovulation Induction and Cycle Monitoring

Ovulation Induction involves taking medications to stimulate the development of female eggs in the ovaries. This increases the chances of conception through timed sexual intercourse or through artificial insemination.

What does Ovulation Induction involve?

  • Assessment: – The Specialist will assess your ovulation cycle through blood tests to measure hormonal levels at specific stages of your cycle. An ultrasound test is also performed to see the development of follicles in the ovaries.

    Stimulation: – The ovaries are then stimulated with proper medication to promote the growth of follicles which contain the female eggs.

    Monitoring: – The cycle is then monitored very closely with regular blood tests and ultrasounds to check the number of follicles.

FAQs

Multiple pregnancies are one of the unique risks associated with ovulation induction treatments. Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome is an infrequent complication that takes place once the medications overstimulate the ovaries. Careful monitoring is needed in both cases to reduce the effects. Furthermore, ectopic pregnancy, ovarian cysts, ovarian cancer and miscarriages are additional risks associated with ovulation induction.
Patients consuming ovulation induction medications can experience side effects such as hot flashes, bloating, headaches, and nausea.
