Ovulation Induction

Ovulation induction is a less aggressive treatment option that still offers success for many patients. This type of treatment cycle includes taking oral medications (such as Clomid or Letrozole) or injectable medications to stimulate the growth of egg follicles. Once egg follicles have grown to an appropriate size, a medication to induce ovulation (such as Ovidrel) is injected to trigger the release of mature eggs.

This treatment option is often used in conjunction with an Intrauterine insemination (IUI) for the best possible outcome. The IUI is appropriately timed with ovulation to ensure that the mature eggs are available while sperm is placed into the uterus with an IUI to increase success rates compared to a cycle of traditionally trying to conceive.
