Ovulation Induction

Ovulation induction is the process of stimulation of the ovulation by using the medicines. Ovulation induction motivates the women’s ovaries to release more and more eggs and hence increasing the chances of conception through IUI insemination. Ovulation induction is best suited for the women who produce low-level hormones for the ovulation process or the ones that are not ovulating at all which may use the medicine to stimulate the secretion of the hormones.

Ovulation Induction steps involved are:

Your ovulation cycle is studied and then confirmed on the basis of;

  • Blood samples that are used to measure the hormone levels at different stages of your cycle
  • Transvaginal ultrasound is also carried out for examining follicles development in the ovaries and their thickness and the appearance of the womb’s lining.


Ovulation Induction Cycle

1st Day: Book an appointment for the blood test.
4th day: Start the usage of medicines
10 the or11th day: Determination of the level of hormone visiting the clinic for blood test reports.
14th day: Visit clinic for ultrasound test which gives the information and determines if you about to ovulate.
The women’s who face irregularity in the menstrual cycle might take some time to ovulate. It is usual for the ovulation to occur at the later stages but it is advised to visit the clinic regularly for the blood tests until the pregnancy is achieved.

Medicines used for Ovulation Induction

  • Clomiphene Citrate(Serophene, Clomid)

Clomiphene citrate is an oral medication that induces ovulation by blocking estrogen receptors. This artificial anti-estrogen effect causes your body to believe estrogen is low and therefore cause the production of more FSH.

  • HMG: LH/FSH (Letrozole, Repronex, Menopur)

HMG is a medication that is composed of FSH, with LH and is used for stimulation of egg development in women who do not ovulate spontaneously, who ovulate extremely irregularly, or to increase the number of eggs developed in a single cycle in women who already ovulate.

  • FSH(Follistim/Gonal F, Bravelle)

FSH medications are used to stimulate the recruitment and development of multiple eggs in women during an ovulation induction cycle.

  • HCG(Profasi or Pregnyl or Ovidrel) Human Chorionic Gonadotropin

HCG is a natural hormone that helps with the final maturation of the eggs and triggers the ovaries to release the mature eggs (ovulation).

  • Leuprolide(Lupron)Synthetic Gonadotropin (FSH/LH) Inhibitor


Lupron suppresses the brain’s secretion of LH and FSH; therefore, it is used in preparation for cycles of treatment with ovulation induction drugs (exogenous hMG-LH/FSH and or FSH). It improves the recruitment of follicles by preventing the recruitment of a dominant follicle for the next menstrual cycle.

Risks associated with Ovulation Induction

  • Medications used for induction of ovaries can sometimes lead to the damage of the uterus lining.
  • OHSS ( Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome) is said to occur in some cases.
  • Symptoms of OHSS ranges from boating to nausea, shortening of breath, pleural effusion, excessive weight gain etc but it depends on the type of the case whether it is mild, moderate or serious.
