Assessment – prior to the treatment, the ovulation cycle is assessed to check the various levels of hormones present such as thyroid, prolactin, FSH, LH, testosterone and other male androgens through a blood test. The womb, ovaries and development of follicles and thickness of the uterus lining is also assessed with the help of ultrasound
Stimulation – depending on the condition assessed previously, medications are then prescribed to help the growth of follicles containing eggs for them to mature and be released
Monitoring – during this course of treatment, regular check up to monitor the growth of number and size of follicles developing
Timed intercourse or artificial insemination – at the time of ovulation, patients are then advised to have intercourse for successful pregnancy or an intrauterine insemination is performed where the semen is inserted into the uterus for the eggs to be fertilized

What medication is used for ovulation induction?

Medications used in ovulation induction can include:

Clomiphene Citrate – is administered orally for 5 days. It acts by making the body believe that the levels of estrogens are low. This triggers hormones such as FSH & LH that aid in ovulation
Letrozole – is also used for ovulation induction and is often used as an alternative to Clomiphene Citrate
FSH – or Follicle Stimulating Hormone is used to stimulate the number of follicles that develop in the ovary
Gonadotrophins – are given in the form of daily injections that also help in inducing ovulation for a period of 5 to 12 days. These injections allow eggs within follicles to mature. They are also often used in IVF.
Gonadotrophin releasing hormones (GnRH) Analogs – are synthetic hormones or artificial GnRH to aid in surge of FSH and LH and later suppression of the same. These analogs are usually used simultaneously along with gonadotrophins for better control of the hormones.
