Ovulation Induction

Ovulation Induction is the process of using medications to stimulate ovulation in women who have irregular or absent ovulation.

Normal ovulation occurs when the ovary releases a mature egg in preparation for that egg to be fertilized. Normal ovulation occurs roughly once every 28 days during a woman’s menstrual cycle. If the fertilization does not occur the mature egg are broken down and cleared from the uterus naturally.

When ovulation happens less than once every 35 days or is unpredictable , it is considered to be irregular.

The goal of ovulation induction is to increase a woman’s chances of conceiving a child, either through sexual intercourse or by using intrauterine insemination(IUI) or another fertility treatment.
