Ovulation Monitoring Induction & IUI
Ovulation issues are a common cause of infertility in women. There are many reasons why a woman may not be ovulating or ovulating irregularly – which can make it difficult to become pregnant. We have the services required to help monitor and induce ovulation to assist in pregnancy.
When it comes to ovulation monitoring, there is no need for any invasive fertility treatment, medication or surgery. Ovulation tracking is a simple process to help you identify your most fertile days for each month.
This process will be able to help you plan intercourse and hopefully increase your chances of conception – especially to help you get through that “fertile window” – the most fertile time in your menstrual cycle.
Even if you have irregular periods, we can help you understand your cycle more accurately when your fertile window is with simple tracking.
Ovulation induction is the use of fertility medications that stimulate the release of one or more eggs from the ovary. This procedure is usually a straightforward fertility treatment.
Ovulation-inducing medications are often the first method that physicians will try to achieve pregnancy. These medications stimulate the release of hormones that drive egg production. This is done either with oral medications and injectable medications.
These medications and dosages to induce ovulation are tailored to suit each individual as each couple is different. Fertility history is also taken into account as well as the man’s semen analysis.
Additional treatments may be required to increase your chance of becoming pregnant. Usually in more straightforward cases, inducing ovulation and recommending sexual intercourse at the right time to coincide with that ovulation may be all that is needed.
Intrauterine insemination is used in conjunction with ovulation induction to achieve pregnancy. This procedure is usually considered when donor sperm is required for those who have a physical problem with sexual intercourse or a physical issue of the cervix preventing sperm penetration.
During a cycle, we will monitor the patient closely with blood tests and ultrasounds. At the time of ovulation, we place sperm directly into the woman’s cervix using a small, thin plastic tube.
Ovarian stimulation combined with IUI is usually a common treatment worldwide for unexplained infertility. But, this isn’t as effective as IVF with cases of low sperm count or endometriosis. If fallopian tubes are blocked or if the cause of infertility is unknown.
As per usual with our services, an accurate diagnosis is important to ensure the tailored treatment plan to address your fertility issue.
