Ovulation Induction

Gynecology - Infertility

Regular ovulation is a sign of a healthy and monthly menstrual cycle. However, some women are prone to irregular periods, occasional periods, or no periods at all. While some people will take it as a normal issue, if it is prolonged, it can be a sign of an underlying medical issue. Irregular or no menstruation can lead to fertility issues.

Ovulation induction refers to the process of stimulating ovulation using medicines. The ovarian follicles are stimulated to ensure proper and healthy ovulation for the development and reversal of oligo-ovulation. At Orion IVF, we offer ovulation induction services and also ensure to keep a check on your cycle.

What is ovulation induction?

Women with irregular ovulation opt for inducing ovulation using different medicines. According to research, women who have absent ovulation need to be under doctor supervision to boost the ovulatory cycles. According to the research by the National Institutes of Health, around 25- 30% of women suffer from ovulation issues, which is one of the leading causes of infertility.

Normal ovulation is the process in which a healthy egg is released as preparation for fertilization. According to the normal cycle, normal ovulation happens around the 14th day of every woman’s menstrual cycle. Nonetheless, many women also have a timing of 10 to 18 days for ovulation, which is considered to be normal. If the egg isn’t fertilized, the woman will get her menses at the regular time.

Irregular ovulation is when periods take more than 35 days or are completely unpredictable. In such a case, you will need to see a doctor. Unpredictable ovulation is known as oligo-ovulation, and absent ovulation is known as anovulation.

Ovulation induction will play an important role in increasing the chances of conceiving a child. Fertility doctors at Orion IVF will put you under hormonal therapy, thereby helping in producing eggs and releasing them.
