Ovulation Induction (OI)
Ovulation induction is a form of fertility treatment that is used to help stimulate and regulate ovulation. This treatment may be recommended for people with irregular cycles or absent periods. This may also be recommended to increase your chances of trying to conceive prior to trying other more complex fertility treatments. There are different types of ovulation therapy, and your No.1 Fertility Specialist may prescribe either a series of tablets or injections. The type of ovulation therapy prescribed will depend on your individual needs and situation. This type of treatment does pose an increased chance of conceiving twins or triplets.
Untracked Ovulation Induction
Untracked ovulation induction involves ovulation therapy medications and regular intercourse to increase the chances of conception. This type of treatment has minimal intervention and monitoring. In some cases, your doctor may recommend progesterone monitoring to ensure ovulation is occurring.
Tracked Ovulation Induction
Tracked ovulation induction involves ovulation therapy medications and monitoring with ultrasounds to observe follicle growth and the best timing for an ovulation inducing medication to be given (trigger injection). The clinic can then advise you of the best time to have intercourse to increase your chance of conception.
