What are ovulation induction and follicular monitoring?
Ovulation induction is a procedure of using medications to stimulate the development of follicles in the ovaries. It is done for women whose menstrual cycles have an unpredictable pattern.
The oral hormones work in place of the natural hormonal surge, and the ovaries start developing eggs regularly and thickening the uterine lining.
We at Nisha IVF, Ahmedabad, continuously supervise the ovulation cycles with pelvic ultrasounds for follicular monitoring. It helps us to evaluate whether the follicles are developing well.
Ovulation induction aims to increase the woman’s chance to conceive a child either through intercourse or by utilizing intrauterine insemination (IUI) or another fertility treatment.

Who can benefit from ovulation induction and follicular monitoring?
Our fertility specialists at Nisha IVF, Ahmedabad, recommend this treatment to a woman who has irregular or absent ovulatory cycles. Women suffering from PCOS, which is an ovulation-interrupting disorder, can also benefit from ovulation induction.

Follicular monitoring :
Once your ovulation clock follows a planned pattern, we will check your progress through a follicular monitoring test that includes pelvic ultrasounds.
The follicular monitoring test helps us assess your follicles’ development and the thickness of your endometrium.
With ovulation induction, a minimum of one egg is prepared in each cycle. In order to conceive, you must have intercourse during the fertile period. To assist you in planning intercourse, our fertility specialist will provide you with a chart.
Otherwise, you can opt for intrauterine insemination (IUI), wherein your partner’s sperm are directly placed in your uterus.
