Ovulation Induction is the process of stimulating/ inducing the ovaries to release eggs either though oral medications or injections. These medications help regulate the timing of ovulation and stimulate egg development and release. It also helps to overcome hormonal problems that might affect the implantation of the embryo in the uterus
Women who go in for ovulation induction have problems caused by:
• Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
• Abnormal prolactin, secretions from the hypothalamus (reproductive portion of the brain) causing absence of periods
• Diminished ovarian reserve
• Unexplained infertility
Ovulation Induction could result in the release of multiple eggs that increases the chances of having multiple births/ twins. At our Center for Infertility and Reproductive Surgery we put in all efforts to maximize the chances of pregnancy thereby reducing the chances of multiple births as they pose risks to both mother and baby.
On successful ovulation induction pregnancy rates per cycle are almost the same as those for normally ovulating women of the same age group.
