What Exactly is Ovulation Induction?
Ovulation induction is the process of stimulating your ovaries to generate and produce eggs for fertilization. This procedure is for anovulation, a disorder in which your ovaries do not mature and produce eggs as nature presumes.
As part of your infertility care, Dr. Meng may employ ovulation induction prior to in-vitro fertilization (IVF). In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a laboratory procedure that unites the sperm and the egg to resolve infertility triggered by polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), anovulation condition, or if your male partner has weak sperm motility or low sperm count.
You may also benefit from ovulation induction by allowing it to assist you in timing your sex more efficiently to conceive.
What to Expect Throughout the Ovulation Induction Procedure?
Dr. Meng will administer an injectable or oral medicine to trigger your ovaries to generate eggs. This medicine contains the following ingredients:
· Follicle-Stimulating Hormones (FSH)
During an ovulation cycle, FSH medicines encourage the development of multiple eggs.
· Clomiphene citrate
Clomiphene citrate is an oral, synthetic antiestrogen that inhibits estrogen receptors to promote ovulation. Typically, this medicine confuses your brain into assuming your estrogen levels are low, causing you to make more FSH.
· Human menopausal gonadotropin (hMG)
Human menopausal gonadotropin (hMG) is a medication that comprises luteinizing and follicle-stimulating hormones to stimulate egg production when you are not ovulating regularly or by yourself.
· Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG)
hCG is an organic hormone that aids in the maturation of your eggs and signals your ovaries to produce the eggs for fertilization.
How Can You Tell Whether Ovulation Induction is Effective?
Dr. Meng will develop a regimen to monitor your egg formation after receiving your prescription drugs by injection or orally. She monitors the growth of your eggs using on-site ultrasound and blood testing.
Once your eggs are nearly ready, Dr. Meng triggers egg ovulation, allowing you to correctly time coupling or undertake IVF procedures. She will perform additional blood tests after unsafe intercourse or IVF therapy to verify pregnancy or assess if you might profit from another sort of reproductive assistance.
