Ovulation Induction Therapy in Laguna Hills, Orange County CA
There are some instances when women don’t ovulate – release an egg from the ovary each month – or ovulate irregularly, which affects their ability to get pregnant. There are several risk factors for this infertility issue, including:
- Weight issues
- Hormonal imbalances
- Reproductive system problems
A diagnosis of infertility due to a problem with your ovulation can leave you feeling shocked, and result in a range of emotional reactions that can be strong and overwhelming. In some cases, there could be no explanation. The situation could also be temporary or long-term. During this time, it’s important to seek extra support, reassurance, or some coping techniques to help you manage the challenges and stress levels, throughout your diagnosis and treatment.
In such cases, the doctor may recommend ovulation induction.
What is ovulation induction?
Ovulation induction is a medical therapy for women who are unable to ovulate by themselves. The treatment involves the use of hormonal medications to stimulate the ovaries in order to produce an egg that can then be fertilized by your partner’s sperm. The medication could be in the form of injections or oral tablets that stimulate the release of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH).
Your doctor will monitor you throughout your cycle using blood tests to measure estrogen levels, as well as ultrasound tests to determine when you’re ovulating. This will help to determine the best time for intercourse to achieve conception. Your treatment will then be adjusted accordingly.
