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.

When I Look Back on Our Fertility Struggle, I Wish We Had Met Dr. Manju Nair Sooner

My wife and I had been trying for a baby for almost three years, having consulted at least 3-4 renowned doctors in Bangalore without any success. After two failed intrauterine insemination (IUI) cycles, we were advised a surgical scan. However, we were wary of going under the knife as part of a diagnostic procedure, and decided against it. Shortly afterwards, we met Dr. Manju Nair on Cloudnine, and we were pleased with our first interaction. She tried to understand our history, the tests done so far, and took note of all our past consultations. Then, she recommended some additional tests for my wife and referred me to an andrologist. Once she had our reports, she was able to pinpoint the problem within a few short weeks. Based on the findings, Dr. Nair communicated the most advisable treatment, and left the final decision to us. Given my sperm morphology, the options were limited – it was either surgery for me, or in vitro fertilisation (IVF). The surgical scan we had been recommended at our previous clinic wasn’t required at all. We went for IVF as per Dr. Nair’s suggestion and the procedure was a success. We were amazed when the pregnancy test showed positive. Today, our baby is almost four months old.

We really valued Dr. Nair’s friendliness, approachability, positivity and tell-it-like-it-is attitude. She boosted our confidence, gave us hope, yet, never made any false promises. We always came back feeling good after every consultation. I would definitely recommend Dr. Manju Nair to anyone struggling to conceive. She is the finest doctor we have ever met and we wish her continued success in the future.

When I look back on our fertility struggle of almost 3 years – visiting different doctors, waiting in long queues and undergoing numerous scans – I only wish we had met Dr. Nair sooner.
