Ovulation Induction

Ovulation induction is a medical procedure that involves using medication to stimulate the ovaries to produce eggs. This is usually done by administering drugs that mimic the hormones that are responsible for regulating the menstrual cycle. These drugs are typically given as a daily injection and are carefully monitored to ensure that the ovaries are responding appropriately.
For patients requiring ovulation induction, we offer a range of effective treatment options that are tailored to their specific needs. With the latest technology and expert medical staff, patients can be assured of receiving the best possible care at Nandini Women’s Clinic.

Who is ovulation induction suitable for?

Ovulation induction is typically recommended for women who are struggling to conceive due to ovulatory disorders. These disorders can include conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), hypothalamic amenorrhea, and premature ovarian failure. Ovulation induction may also be recommended for women who are undergoing fertility treatments such as IUI or IVF.
Before starting ovulation induction, our doctors will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine if this treatment is appropriate for you. This will typically include a physical examination, blood tests, and ultrasound scans to check for any underlying medical conditions that may be affecting your fertility.

What to Expect During Ovulation Induction?

Ovulation induction is typically a straightforward procedure that is done on an outpatient basis. You will need to attend regular monitoring appointments with our doctors to track your progress and ensure that the ovaries are responding appropriately to the medication.
The treatment process typically involves the following steps:
  • Baseline Testing: Before starting ovulation induction, your doctor will conduct baseline testing to check your hormone levels and determine when your cycle is likely to start.
  • Medication: Once your cycle has started, you will be given medication to stimulate the ovaries to produce eggs. This medication is typically given as a daily injection and is monitored closely to ensure that the ovaries are responding appropriately.
  • Monitoring: During ovulation induction, you will need to attend regular monitoring appointments with your doctor. This may involve blood tests, ultrasound scans, or both to track the development of the follicles in the ovaries.
  • Trigger Shot: Once the follicles have developed to the desired size, you will be given a trigger shot to help release the eggs from the ovaries.
  • Timed Intercourse or Insemination: After the trigger shot, you will need to have timed intercourse or undergo an insemination procedure. This involves placing sperm directly into the uterus to increase the chances of fertilisation.
  • Follow-up: After the insemination, you will need to attend follow-up appointments with your doctor to monitor your progress and determine if further treatment is needed.
