Sometimes ovulation happens rarely or not at all. In these cases, infertility can be treated using special medication to induce ovulation. More often than not, this method is used when a patient is diagnosed with «anovulation» — a menstrual disorder in which no eggs are released.

Reasons to induce ovulation:

  • declining ovarian reserve (i.e. reduced amount of potential egg cells), due to age-related changes;
  • ovarian disorders, i.e. polycystic ovary syndrome;
  • endocrine disorders.

On the first ovulation induction attempt, doctors often use Clomid, a fertility medication (active ingredient: clomiphene) that increases the production of pituitary hormones that stimulate ovarian activity and induce ovulation. Strangely enough, Clomid originally was made as a contraceptive, but is now used to get the exact opposite result. If Clomid doesn’t induce ovulation, a doctor can prescribe medication from other group (Menopur, Gonal, or Puregon).

Clomid must be started on the 5th day of a woman’s menstrual cycle. A specialist can recommend ovarian cyst aspiration beforehand if this problem exists. The patient must have an ultrasound the 7th and 14th days of their cycle to control folliculogenesis. In the middle of the cycle when the leading follicle can grow up to 20 mm in diameter, an expert will prescribe a medication containing HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin, a hormone produced by pregnant women).

IVF Stimulation

After starting the HCG medication, ovulation begins 24-36 hours after. Next, the problem of the ovary-in-question’s future arises. Theoretically, either natural conception or artificial insemination could be used, but that would be a horribly counter-productive waste of genetic material which took so much effort to retrieve. Because of this, most doctors get the eggs (retrieve them from the female body) with the intention of using it in the future for artificial insemination together with the application of an additional technology called ICSI.

 Further treatment tactics are developed by seeing a doctor depending on the situation. If it is not difficult to collect the male genetic material, embryos are saved using cryopreservation and then fertilized consecutively. After that, the collected embryos are used following the traditional IVF protocol.

IVF fertility drug treatments need to happen under the supervision of an experienced doctor. Incorrect stimulation can cause major complications; the egg is too important to lose because of malpractice, poor-quality equipment, or faulty medication.
