Ovulation Induction


A normal menstrual cycle usually produces one mature follicle that results in the ovulation of a single oocyte or egg. Ovulation Induction is a procedure that uses medication to increase the number of eggs ovulated per cycle which may improve the chances of pregnancy. Every patient taking these medications will be monitored closely (during the clinic's cycle monitoring hours) over a 2 - 3 week period of time, via ultrasound and blood tests, to determine their response to the treatment. Based on the results of the patient's ultrasound and blood work, the doctor will adjust the dose of the medication as necessary and inform the patient as to the optimal time for intercourse or intrauterine insemination.
