ovulation induction

Ovulation Induction (O.I.) is a common fertility treatment and is usually recommended when:

  • Your periods are irregular or inadequate or even absent
  • Patients with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
  • The patient needs to produce extra eggs for fertility procedures such as IUI / IVF

Ovulation induction involves serial Follicular scans done trans-vaginally from the 2nd / 3rd Day of the menstrual period to study the ovarian follicles (eggs) and the thickness of the endometroium (lining of uterus). Stimulation of ovaries is done with drugs such as Clomiphene citrate or Follicle stimulation hormone (FSH) injections). When the follicles have reached the desired size, an injection called HCG is given to trigger ovulation or release of the egg from the ovary. Conception happens through sexual intercourse on prescribed dates or by intra-uterine insemination (IUI) if required.
