Ovulation Induction

Ovulation induction as can be understood by the name is a process of stimulation of ovulation in females with the help of medication. This procedure plays a significant role in the treatment of infertility in the females. At KARE, we have adequately trained and vastly experienced doctors who provide the female patients with the proper ovulation induction service so that they are able to overcome the grief of their infertility and conceive.
The process is generally used for the purpose of stimulating the development of the follicles of the ovaries and to reverse the effect of anovulation (no ovulation) or oligoovulation (irregular or few ovulation). In an addition to this, the process is also done to trigger the release of oocyte from the follicles of the ovaries which are relatively mature.


Who Can Go for the Process?

Ovulation induction is perfectly suited to the females who produce extremely low levels for the necessary hormones for ovulation. The process is also ideally suited for women who are not at all ovulating but have a perfectly normal fallopian tubes along with the male partner having a normal semen analysis. In these situations, it would be a very good idea to go for the process of ovulation induction.

The Process of Ovulation Induction

At KARE, the ovulation induction is carried out by experienced doctors in a stepwise manner which are as discussed below.

  • At the beginning, the doctors will assess the ovulation cycle of the woman with some blood tests for measuring the levels of hormone at the specific stages of the cycle. The doctor also conducts an ultrasound test for getting a clear idea about the development of the ovarian follicles along with the thickness and appearance of the lining of the uterus.
  • The second step of the process is the stimulation of the ovaries with the help of specific medications for promoting follicular growth which contains eggs.
  • The specialists at KARE make sure to provide the best suited medication or a proper combination of Ovulation Induction medicines for the same based on the situation.
  • The next step is of monitoring where the ovulation cycle is closely monitored with the help of ultrasound and blood tests for checking the size as well as the number of developing follicles. This monitoring is quite important for the reduction of risks of multiple pregnancies.
  • Finally, when the female is very near to her ovulation cycle, the specialists at KARE, advise the ideally suited day to have sexual intercourse for the maximisation of chances of a pregnancy or conduct an intrauterine insemination. This timely intercourse of artificial insemination helps in conception.

Medications Used
The main medications used in ovulation induction are as follows.
Clomid – This is an oral medication used for the induction of ovulation in the females who do not ovulate on their own, has irregular cycles or very long cycles. The medication helps in the production of more follicle stimulating hormone.

Gonadotropins or Follicle Stimulating Hormone – These are given as injections to the females for the stimulation of the number of follicles which develop in their ovaries and increase the chances of proper maturity of the eggs.

In an addition to this, the doctors may use a proper combination of these based on the condition to get the best possible result in overcoming fertility in the females.
