Ovulation induction

Ovulation, which is the difficulty that some women have for expelling an egg in the middle of their menstrual cycle, is one of the most frequent causes of infertility and responsible for almost half of the reproductive alterations that are present in women. To treat this problem, we at Inser provide ovulation induction therapy, which makes the couple more likely to get a pregnancy in the short term by administering medicines that help the ovary to perform ovulation.

  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Thyroid gland function disorders
  • Increase of a hormone prolactin (hyperprolactinemia)
  • Altered adrenal gland function
  • Obesity

Ovulation induction is a treatment designed to stimulate the ovary in women who have difficulty in expelling the ovum and being able to be fertilized later.

To help in the ovulation process of women, there are different types of medications that can be used. The tablets are easier to use for patients and have the advantage that once the effective dose is established by mouth, they can be used at home without having to be monitored by a doctor. During this process, it is recommended to have a medical follow-up because there is the risk of ovarian hyperstimulation even with the administration of oral medications. Also, this control should be done to know exactly when the woman is in preovulatory period.

Gonadotropin injections that are similar to hormones such as FSH and LH that stimulate the growth and development of the ovum, these are more potent and effective but should be used every month under medical supervision.

Este tratamiento está diseñado para mujeres que presentan:

  • Ausencia de ovulación (anovulación).
  • Trastornos ovulatorios (disovulación).
  • Otras causas, tales como infertilidad inexplicada o subfertilidad asociada a otras causas.

The doctor will tell the patient to let you know the exact day the menstrual period arrives, as an ultrasound should be done in the first days of the cycle to assess the functioning of the ovaries and uterus. At that time, treatment with medications to stimulate the ovary begins.

A few days later, a new ultrasound is practiced, with the aim of observing the growth of the follicles in the ovaries. It is often necessary to perform one or two more ultrasound to identify the day the ovary will ovulate, to give indications of the days of greatest likelihood of pregnancy with sexual intercourse.

Although the success of this treatment depends on the age of the woman and the causes that have determined the indication of treatment, a high percentage of women respond in a proper way.
