Ovulation Induction

When fertility is caused by ovulation difficulties (much common in cases of polycystic ovaries, for instance) it is possible to administrate medication that improves the ovaries functioning capacity. The treatment is performed with pills or subcutaneous injections of gonadotrophins. ?The ovulation induction is advised to young couples that are trying to get pregnant for a short time. It is also advisable to women with irregular menstrual cycles. It is essential to check if the semen analysis is normal and if the tubes have no obstruction.

Since the ovarian response is changeable, it is necessary to perform some ultrasound scans to determine their response. Thus, you can avoid a multiple pregnancy and calculate the ovulation time. By then, the couple must have intercourse.
If the ovaries response is adequate, the ovulation induction may proceed for a period of six months, after which you may think of other alternative treatments.
The ovulation induction success rates are low for each treatment. But since it is an easy and economical treatment, it may be performed for some time, for instance, by young couples having no other infertility problems.
