The aim of ovulation induction is to develop one or two mature follicles.

What are the steps of treatment in Ovulation Induction?

Couple must undergo fertility evaluation to know if they are suitable for this treatment. Generally oral medications are preferred to stimulate ovaries to grow follicles. However in some cases injectable medications are also needed. The development of the follicle is followed up on a Trans-vaginal scan. When the follicle reaches a certain size, ovulation is triggered. This helps in the release of the mature egg from the follicle.Ovulation can be confirmed with the help of ultrasound, urine or blood tests. Subsequently, depending upon these tests and ovulation scan the doctor advises the couple to have intercourse on particular days to increase the chances of pregnancy.
