Ovulation induction

Ovulation induction (OI) is a fertility treatment that uses medication to stimulate ovulation and the likelihood of an egg in that cycle.

What is ovulation induction?

Ovulation occurs when an ovary releases an egg. For some people who have ovarian failure, irregular periods or no periods, it can make conception more challenging.

Ovulation induction (OI) is a fertility treatment that uses medication to stimulate ovulation and the likelihood of an egg in that cycle.

Fertility drugs are also the main treatment used for people with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) or hormonal imbalances.

Usual Patient Profile

Ovulation induction can be a good treatment line if you have been diagnosed with PCOS or another type of condition where you don't ovulate at all, or your ovulation is very irregular.

Usual Patient Profile

You are a good candidate if you meet any of the following critera:

→ If you have been trying to get pregnant for a year, we usually recommend fertility diagnostics. In certain situations, we may recommend them sooner than this.

→ If you have any questions on whether diagnostics are right for you, please get in touch with one of our advisors to discuss your background and fertility history.

How is this diagnosed?

If you suffer from irregular periods or absence of regular periods, this is defined as anovulation. Blood tests to check thyroid, prolactin and progesterone levels can also indicate anovulation or hormone imbalances. Sperm tests done at home or in a clinic test the sperm quality and quantity. 

What medication is used?

The most common fertility drugs used for ovulation induction are either the hormone medications Clomifene (Clomid) or Letrozole (Femara). These are taken as tablets between days 2 and 6 of your cycle. If your body doesn’t respond to the tablets, then the next step may be to have medication injections of gonadotrophins to stimulate the ovaries.


How does ovulation induction work?

The medications contain hormones identical to the ones in your body stimulate the growth of follicles in the ovaries to produce eggs. The stimulated cycle is monitored by blood tests and ultrasound scans and advice on when is the best time to have intercourse or potentially IUI.


Are there any risks?

There can be a risk of developing too many follicles which can lead to having multiples (twins, triplets etc). There are increased risks with multiples pregnancies.
