Ovulation Induction with timed intercourse
What is Ovulation Induction?

This is the first step towards fertility management. In ovulation induction, patients are treated with hormone medications or fertility drugs to increase the chances of ovulation. Ovulation induction medications are used to help women who do not normally ovulate to produce a single, healthy egg, and women who ovulate but where the quality or number of eggs produced may not be sufficient to achieve a successful pregnancy.

What is the step-by-step procedure?

Step 1: Stimulation

Certain medications are given for development of one or more mature follicles in a woman’s ovaries.

Step 2: Follicular Induction

Transvaginal pelvic ultrasound scans are used to access the follicular development and endometrial lining (lining of the womb) of the uterus.

Step 3: Egg Release

Ovulation induction cycles are followed by an hCG injection to induce ovulation, the final maturation of the egg and loosening of the egg from the follicle wall.

Step 4: Timed Intercourse

Then, the couple is advised to have intercourse as per the ovulation scan and days suggested by the doctor.
