Ovulation Induction

/Ovulation Induction

 

Many options are available to overcome infertility, depending upon the causes. Ovulation induction, where hormonal-based therapies are used to increase egg production and prompt ovulation, and operative procedures may be the first avenues of treatment.

Ovulation induction involves administration of medications (usually containing follicle stimulating hormone) to increase the number of follicles produced in a menstrual cycle, thereby increasing the efficiency of assisted reproductive technology procedures, or allowing anovulatory patients to achieve ovulation and pregnancy.
