YES, The first stage of the in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle is the ovulation induction treatment. To get the ovaries to produce several eggs in a single cycle, ovulation induction is carried out. One egg is typically produced during normal ovulation. Your ovaries are stimulated to produce several follicles so that a number of eggs can mature at once during ovulation induction with medication.

The fundamentals of IVF and ovulation induction

The capacity to begin and end the ovulation cycle contributes to higher IVF success rates. IVF can significantly increase a couple’s chances of becoming pregnant for the proper applicants.

Ovulation induction infertile treatment is important for the success of IVF. Your reproductive specialists are able to produce more mature eggs via ovulation than they could with a typical cycle. Additionally, it enables them to obtain eggs at the ideal moment when they’re fully developed but have yet to be discharged by the ovaries.

The likelihood of a normal conception is increased by the usage of fertility medicines, which promote the creation and maturity of numerous eggs. There is no necessity to continue the ovulation induction phase if there are any additional embryos because they can be saved and used in later IVF procedures.

Do ovulation inductions carry any risks?

Ovulation induction treatment has several advantages, but it also carries certain hazards. Most significantly, the likelihood of multiple births is raised by ovulation-stimulating drugs. There is a 10% possibility of getting twins if you get pregnant.

Although they are uncommon and generally mild, certain drugs can cause negative effects in some women. Possible negative effects include:

  • hot flash
  • Breast pain
  • Mood changes
  • Nausea
  • Headaches
  • Bruising and swelling at the injection sites

In rare circumstances, you can also be at a higher risk of developing ovarian cysts. Ovarian hyper stimulation syndrome, a rare disorder, is also more likely to develop (OHSS). You may experience excruciating pain in your chest, abdomen, and pelvis as a result. You might also gain weight quickly, vomit, have dark urine, feel lightheaded, and have breathing difficulties. If this happens, consult your ovulation induction infertile doctor right away. 

Who should undergo ovulation induction infertile treatment?

Women who are having trouble getting pregnant benefit from ovulation induction treatment. Ovulation induction is a crucial step in the IVF procedure if you’re trying to boost your chances of getting pregnant. To determine the right dosage for you, your doctor will consult with you frequently.

If you experience irregular menstrual cycles or don’t ovulate at all, you might wish to discuss ovulation induction with your doctor—either alone or as part of IVF. If you experience any of the following:

  • Have endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, or thyroid disease (PCOS)
  • either severely obese or severely underweight
  • Experience exercise-induced amenorrhea, a syndrome that happens when a person exercises excessively and has a low body weight.
  • If you’ve been trying to get pregnant for 12 months or more you might also want to speak with your doctor.

Your fertility experts will collect blood samples and carry out a transvaginal ultrasound to establish your ovulation cycle before ovulation induction treatment is medically induced. They’ll probably also request that you start keeping track of your ovulation cycles. You can accomplish this by monitoring your base body temperature or using an ovulation predictor kit.

You will be prescribed drugs to stop premature ovulation a week or so before the start of your new cycle. The most often prescribed medications also include injectable drugs and oral tablet drugs. 


Every couple having trouble becoming pregnant receives medications or injections to assist with ovulation. Success in conception, whether through times of intercourse (natural pregnancy), IUI or IVF, depends on ovulation induction treatment.
