Ovulation Induction

at Work

Ovulation Induction is first line treatment for infertility in many straight forward cases and is indicated in ovulating as well as in non ovulating women. Ovulation Induction is achieved with use of fertility drugs to cause ovulation (in women who do not ovulate) or for growth of multiple eggs (in women who ovulate) to increase their chance of conception. Recent studies suggest that subtle defects in ovulation (even in ovulatory women) can lead to infertility. Fertility drugs induce two to three eggs to mature versus only one; often improving the quality and quantity of the eggs released and enhancing the pregnancy rates.

Becoming pregnant is dependent on the release of a healthy egg capable of being fertilised by a healthy sperm. Apart from external factors, ovulation problems can be caused by deficiency in one of the controlling hormones (FSH/LH), which can be successfully treated with medication.
