We are aware that a significant number of women have problems producing and releasing their eggs. The failure to produce and/or release eggs is known as anovulation. Ovulation Induction is when doctors give medication usually hormonal drugs in form of tablets or injection to assist the ovaries to produce and release eggs to improve the chances of achieving conception either with intercourse or with artificial insemination.
After your doctor has assessed that you would benefit from ovulation induction, on the first day of your menstruation, you will receive a plan detailing how you will take your drugs. Usually we advise you start medication between day 2 and 5 of your cycle.
You will be monitored with transvaginal scans from day 9 of your cycle to track the growth of the follicles and you will be advised when you should have intercourse or artificial insemination.
At Origene Health Services, your safety is important to us. The following measures have therefore been adopted to ensure this:
Knowing the most fertile days in a cycle can increase a woman’s chances of conceiving and knowing the likelihood of ovulation on a specific day may help women understand their fertile window.
