Induction of ovulation is an infertility treatment procedure done in Hegde Fertility under the meticulous supervision of aninfertility specialist in Madhapur, Dr.Vandana Hegde, in which the ovaries are encouraged to produce eggs. Ovulation induction is done with the use of medications to stimulate the ovary. When stimulated, the follicles are triggered to mature. Only one egg is released in one cycle during the ovulation process.
Ovulation induction is different from controlled ovarian hyper stimulation where more than one primary follicles are stimulated to produce multiple eggs in a single ovulation cycle.
Many fertility centers are adopting this fertility treatment like inducing ovulation in females, by virtue of which, multiple eggs can be produced increasing the chances of pregnancy. These medications are given to the female after a complete examination and monitoring of ovulation cycle, by the best Gynecologist
Ovulation of induction in Hegde Fertility is performed on the women who mostly do not ovulate on their own or the rate of ovulation and periods is less and irregular in them. E.g. PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome). And now wish to get pregnant.
These women present with complaints of irregular ovulation and periods, increased body hair, and cysts on their ovaries. Theses females often complain of infertility.
1. Taking Medications:
Depending on the causes of irregular ovulation after periods, different medications may be prescribed. Fertility treatment with medication normally begins with a drug like clomiphene citrate, which is taken orally. For women who don’t respond to this line of treatment, it is supplemented with an ovulation injection of Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), which leads to the healthy development of the egg.
Treatment with these drugs results in pregnancy only if the woman has good quality eggs reserve in her ovaries. If a women has pre mature ovarian failure, donated eggs from a healthy egg donor is the only viable option for her.
2. Ultrasounds and Blood Samples:
After giving the oral or injectable hormonal medications, the response of the ovaries is assessed with the help of serial ultra-sonographies. That is sonograms done on consecutive days under the meticulous observation of the Infertility Specialist. The growth and the development of the follicles (fluid filled sacs in which egg develops) is monitored in these USGs. Blood tests are also performed to assess the hormonal levels.
3. Triggering Ovulation Under Observation OfBest Gynaecologist – Hegde Fertility
At the time of ovulation, there is LH (luteinizing hormone) surge in the body. In ovulation induction, this LH surge is mimicked with the help of an hcg hormone injection for ovulation. Ovulation occurs approximately 36 to 38 hours after the injection.
4. Timed Intercourse To Conceive:
The couple is advised to have intercourse approximately 36 hours after the injection of HCG. In short, the intercourse is expected to happen at the time of ovulation. So the sperms are available to fertilize the egg when the ovulation takes place.
For example, if the HCG injection for ovulation is given at a particular time in the morning, the couple is expected to have intercourse following day around the same time in the night.
Success rates depend on various factors like the age of the female, the medications given, presence of other infertility factors in the couple.
