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.

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.

  • 2Ovulation 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.

  • 3Cycle 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.

  • 4Fertilisation

    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.
