Ovulation induction is the process of taking medication to stimulate the ovaries to make eggs be eleased mid cycle. This can be done by taking oral medications or injectable medications. Clomid or Femara are oral medications often prescribed to be taken days 3 through 7 of the cycle followed by home ovulation predictor kits.
Some do not pick up the hormone surge on the ovulation predictor kits and may need to come to the office mid cycle for a transvaginal ultrasound to monitor the ovarian response to the mediations. Timed Intercourse or artificial insemination is the typical treatment option when taking these medications.
