Ovulation Induction at Dr. Pallavi Agrawal’s Clinic

Ovulation induction is a fertility treatment that involves stimulating the ovaries to produce and release eggs. This treatment is commonly used for women who have irregular or absent ovulation, which can be a barrier to conception. Ovulation induction can be achieved through various methods, including medication and hormonal therapy.

Why Ovulation Induction?

  1. Irregular Ovulation: Women with irregular menstrual cycles or ovulation disorders may benefit from ovulation induction to improve the chances of conception.
  2. Unexplained Infertility: Ovulation induction is often considered as a first-line treatment for couples with unexplained infertility.
  3. Controlled Ovarian Stimulation: In assisted reproductive technologies such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) and in vitro fertilization (IVF), ovulation induction is used to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple eggs for retrieval and fertilization.

How Does Ovulation Induction Work?

  1. Initial Evaluation: Before starting treatment, a thorough evaluation of your menstrual cycle and hormone levels will be conducted.
  2. Medication: Your doctor may prescribe medication to stimulate ovulation, such as clomiphene citrate or gonadotropins.
  3. Monitoring: Throughout the treatment cycle, your hormone levels and follicle development will be monitored using blood tests and ultrasound.
  4. Timing Intercourse or Procedures: Once the follicles reach the desired size, ovulation may be triggered using a hormone injection. You will then be advised on the timing of intercourse or any assisted reproductive procedures.
  5. Pregnancy Test: A pregnancy test will be conducted about two weeks after ovulation to determine if the treatment was successful.

Success Rates

Success rates for ovulation induction vary depending on various factors such as age, cause of infertility, and overall health. Dr. Pallavi Agrawal will discuss your individual chances of success based on your specific situation.
