Ovulation Induction +
Ovulation induction is one of the most basic treatments we offer, and many of our clients have already attempted this method with their OB/GYN prior to seeing us.
This process involves the stimulation of a woman’s ovaries through the use of fertility medications, like Clomid or Femara.
In some cases, patients do not become pregnant because of difficulties related to ovulation timing. We are able to monitor you to determine when ovulation occurs and recommend the best possible day/time for intercourse.
As one of the most basic treatments we offer, many of our patients have already attempted ovulation induction with their OB/GYN prior to seeing us.
The process involves stimulation of a woman’s ovaries through the use of fertility medications, like Clomid or Femara. Ovulation induction is frequently used with Intrauterine Insemination (IUI).
An IUI involves placing washed sperm in the woman's uterus with a thin catheter when she's ovulating. IUI is especially useful when the sperm has difficulty reaching the egg and is frequently used for the treatment of mild to moderate male factor problems such as poor sperm function.
