Ovulation Induction & Cycle Monitoring

BOOK APPOINTMENT

What Is Ovulation Induction and Cycle Monitoring?

If you haven’t been able to gauge the beat of your ovulatory cycles, it’s possible that your ovulation is infrequent or absent. Ovulation induction is an ideal procedure for women whose menstrual cycles do not follow a predictable pattern. The technique aims to stimulate the development of follicles in a woman’s ovaries through the administration of carefully selected oral hormones. The medications that are used work in lieu of the natural hormonal surge and the ovaries begin developing eggs rhythmically, thickening the uterine lining. On Cloudnine, we monitor ovulation induction cycles continually through pelvic ultrasounds, to measure how well the follicles are developing and how thick the endometrium is growing. Ovulation induction aims to open up frequent fertile windows, during which a schedule for intercourse is recommended. Alternatively, fertilisation may be performed through intrauterine insemination (IUI).

Why Choose Ovulation Induction and Cycle Monitoring?

Ovulation induction is a treatment commonly elected by women who experience irregular or absent ovulatory cycles.

Sporadic Menstruation

Sporadic menstruation is usually induced by a hormonal disequilibrium, leading to anovulation or infrequent ovulation. In turn, timing intercourse within a fertile window can pose a challenge. Ovulation induction lets you slip into a subtle programmed monthly cycle, allowing your body to replenish its hormone levels and resume ovulation.

Anovulatory Menstrual Cycles

In some women, menstrual cycles may be anovulatory. So, while you may experience what seems like regular menstruation, your body may not necessarily have released an egg. This condition is usually triggered by a decline in progesterone, in whose absence, the body loses the ability to grow the uterine lining adequately. Anovulatory cycles are known as oestrogen breakthrough bleeding.

Is Ovulation Induction and Cycle Monitoring Right for Me?

If you’ve ever come face to face with hormonal conditions that could have hampered your fertility, such as polycystic ovary syndrome, hypopituitarism or endometriosis, chances are, that your hormonal reserves need to be optimised through ovulation induction. Ovulation induction is a completely safe, non-invasive procedure, suited for most women with a yoyoing hormone graph.

What Are the Steps of Ovulation Induction and Cycle Monitoring?

Ovulation induction is composed of a string of steps, which are seamlessly sewn together to create a treatment plan.

1

Evaluation

At the outset, our crew of fertility specialists will seek to determine your ovulation pattern by conducting a range of blood tests. They will chart your hormone reserves at various stages of your cycle, and also assess the progress of your uterine lining and developing follicles through this period.

2

Ovulation Stimulation

Once an end-to-end evaluation is performed, your fertility consultant will ease you into a custom-designed stimulation cycle. The ingestion of hormones will promote the growth of follicles, which will release eggs on reaching maturation. On Cloudnine, our treatment solutions are created with much thought and care, and a personalised medication roster is curated for every guest.

3

Cycle Monitoring

When your ovulation clock settles into a paced rhythm, we will monitor your progress through pelvic ultrasounds. This will help shed light on the development of your follicles and the thickness of your endometrium, both essential measures in the stimulation process.

4

Fertilisation

Ovulation induction prepares at least one egg in every cycle to meet its potential suitor, the sperm. Intercourse during the fertile window is essential in ensuring conception, and your fertility specialist may provide you with a calendar to help you plan intercourse. Alternatively, you could resort to intrauterine insemination (IUI), a process that involves the injection of stored sperm directly into the vagina.

What are the Risks of Ovulation Induction?

On Cloudnine, we go to great lengths to ensure that the risks posed by any fertility treatment plan are minimised. We know that a traditional ovulation induction procedure poses risks to a woman, of which some are mentioned below.

Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome

If ovulation is induced incorrectly, it could lead to a condition called ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. The condition presents a combination of symptoms such as severe abdominal pain, nausea, dark-tinted urine and breathlessness. On Cloudnine, we use revolutionary techniques to determine a precise course of medication for your body.

Multiple Births

Ovulation-inducing medication can result in the release of more than one egg, increasing the chances of multiple births.

Other Symptoms

Other symptoms could include general nausea, bloating, high blood pressure or gestational diabetes. Our renowned fertility specialists tailor their approach to every guest, to mitigate the risks that are usually associated with ovulation induction.

TESTIMONIALS

Cloudnine Helped Us Realise Our Long-Held Dream of Parenthood.
Dr. Radhika Sheth was our pillar of strength throughout our days of infertility. When we consulted her, she suggested that my wife and I pursue fertility treatment on Cloudnine. Cloudnine gave us the best of both worlds; the comfort of consulting Dr. Sheth and easy access to first-class amenities. Over the span of 4 months, we underwent 6 treatment cycles in order to beat our stubborn condition. And in the end, our persistence paid off. Thanks to Dr. Sheth, we conceived. We were so content with our experience, that we opted to continue our affiliation to Cloudnine with their signature maternity experience. After all, Cloudnine helped us realise our long-held dream of parenthood.

My fertility treatment plan on Cloudnine was composed of an HSG test followed by two IVF cycles. The experience was very good, and if it weren’t for the support and encouragement I received from the doctors and nurses, I wouldn’t have become a mother to my baby boy. I am thankful to Cloudnine for giving me the gift of motherhood.

I was referred to Dr. Uma Maheshwari early this year. At the outset, it was an emotional experience, but Dr. Maheshwari and all the nurses, especially Divya, Omana and Ranjitha, were warm and embraced me like they would, family. Dr. Uma was very caring and always remembered every little detail about my pregnancy. Best of all, she was available when we needed her.
I consider Cloudnine a very lucky place. I came here looking to go through fertility procedures and artificial conception but ended up conceiving naturally. I would recommend Dr. Maheshwari and her entire team to those looking for quality fertility solutions. Thanks to the entire team for taking such good care of me.

I opted to meet Dr. Radhika Sheth at Cloudnine Hospital, Malad, to discuss fertility treatment options. I knew I’d made the right choice when I discovered how approachable she was. She was very cooperative, always available, ever-smiling and full of positive energy. Not only did she suggest the right treatment plan for me, she worked hard to make me feel special along the way.

I am extremely pleased with the experience we had with Dr. Radhika Sheth. After having undergone fruitless fertility treatments for more than two years with other doctors, I was finally able to conceive after an IVF cycle administered by Dr. Sheth. Needless to say, she was very helpful and supportive throughout my treatment tenure. I am and always will be eternally thankful to Dr. Sheth for giving me my precious bundle of joy.

I am extremely happy with the treatment we received from Dr. Radhika Sheth and her team at Cloudnine Clinic. The doctor devoted ample time to hearing about our medical history, present problems and general issues we were facing. She was very understanding and would patiently answer all the questions we asked her. During the first visit itself, Dr. Sheth assured us that we would get pregnant; that there was absolutely no doubt about it. Hearing those words was a big relief and instantly boosted our confidence. We started our fertility treatment last year, after which, much to our delight, we finally conceived. We are eagerly awaiting our baby now and can hardly express our happiness in words. We consider ourselves very lucky that God directed us to Cloudnine Clinic.
Thanks to Dr. Radhika Sheth and her entire team for making our journey to conception worthwhile. Last but not the least, a big thumbs up to all the administration staff for the wonderful operational support.

I am very happy to share experience I had with Sure. I tried to conceive from past 1 year without any success. I had gone to many doctors in Bangalore and at my hometown but I couldn’t conceive. I came to know about Sure from Cloudnine hospital. I had posted a message for appointment and I immediately got a call from Sure. I was amazed with their immediate response. This experience continued. I got an appointment with Dr. Jyothi Menon and was very much satisfied with her answers during my first visit itself. I got confidence with her words. Based on her advice, we thought of going for a treatment at Sure. Her way of treatment was very good. We had to visit Sure 4-5 times in the first cycle. My first cycle at Sure was successful. I am 3 months pregnant now. I am very thankful to Dr. Jyothi Menon. Staff at sure are really caring, supportive and are cool in answering all the questions. Especially I need to mention about Swetha at reception. I had very good experience with her every time I go there. Ambience at sure is very good and hygienic. Nursing staff is also very caring.Overall it was a wonderful experience.
