Women who do not ovulate, usually present with irregular or absent periods. This condition is called anovulation. The most common cause is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). Women with PCOS have subfertility as they may have infrequent ovulation or no ovulation.
Ovulation induction is performed using oral tablets containing Letrozole or Clomiphene Citrate or hormonal injections containing Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH). During your treatment, you will require regular ultrasound scans to monitor the response of your ovaries. In addition to the scans you may be asked to check your LH hormone level (the hormone that causes ovulation to occur) by using home fertility kits. You may either aim for spontaneous conception through intercourse or have Intrauterine Insemination treatment (IUI). Ovulation induction may lead to the development of more than one follicle resulting in multiple pregnancy.
