Ovulation induction is a method of treatment of infertility by stimulation of ovulation by medications, at the base of which is the influence on the receptors of sex glands by the medicines. The aim of ovulation induction is to aid in the ovaries to produce a follicle and a mature egg cells.
This method of treatment is used if there are no ovulation and one (or two) of fallopian tubes is permeable and certainly normal indexes of sperm of partner. In the complex of treatment of endocrine infertility (anovulation), infertility of unexplained genesis in our Clinic we use the Italian medication “FT 500 Plus“, which promotes the emergence of spontaneous ovulation, fertilization and reproductive function normalization .
Approximately with the third day of menstrual cycle the process of maturation of follicle begins, and then, in the middle of cycle – output of ovule from follicle in abdominal cavity – ovulation.
The choice of schedule of ovulation induction depends on many factors and is prescribed by doctor.
Control after development of follicle is realized by the ultrasound. When the follicle achieve certain diameter human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) or its recombinant analogues is administered.
HCG is a natural hormone that helps with the final maturation of the egg cells and triggers the ovaries to release the mature egg cells (ovulation). It also stimulates the corpus luteum to secrete progesterone to prepare the lining of the uterus for implantation of the fertilized egg cell.
Side effects may include: headaches, irritability, restlessness, depression, fatigue, edema, and ovarian hyperstimulation.
To increase your chances of becoming pregnant we try to stimulate the development of two (but not more than three) ovules (the doctor’s control after development of follicles is very important). The conceiving begins naturally in the determined period. There are also the other factors, which influence the progress of stimulation of ovulation. Among them: the age of woman, the presence of other reasons of infertility and the correct selection of medications.
