Ovulation inducement is the process of using a medication to promote the growth of one or several mature Follicles (where eggs are created) in the Ovaries of women suffering from anovulation or infertility. Women with these conditions do not typically have mature follicles without assistance with ovulation-stimulating medications.

There are four main kinds of medications that can be employed to stimulate the ovulation process. The use of these medications can cause pregnancy if the woman has eggs of good quality that are still in her ovaries and also if other causes of infertility are not evident.

Gonadotrpin releasing hormone (Lupron) Injection Instructions:

  • Clomiphene Citrate (Clomid)
  • A prescription medication is used to induce ovulation for women who don't have a natural ovulation by stimulating women to make more of the follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). It is most commonly prescribed when the woman is experiencing an irregular menstrual cycle or long periods.
  • Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH)Hormone injections of FSH can boost how many follicles which grow in the ovary and, consequently, the number of eggs fertilised in the course of a cycle. Another hormone, Human gonadotropin (hCG), is a possibility in an injectable form to induce Ovulation after the follicles are created.

There are some side consequences associated with Ovulation that is not listed here, but they include:

  • Risk for multiple births
  • Hot flashes
  • Hyper-stimulation
  • Nausea
  • Bloating
  • Headache
  • Uterine bleeding

The severity of the condition may vary from patient to individual.

Induction initiation and Tracking at our center

  • Each patient receives a personalised Ovulation stimulation treatment program based on their initial examination. They also report the husband and wife. The couple has explained the procedure and given informed consent obtained before the treatment begins.
  • When treatment begins, the trans-vaginal ultrasound procedure is scheduled at regular intervals, and dosages of the drug are adjusted as needed. A monitoring card is given to each patient. All results are recorded on the same day to make it easy to refer back. Patients are required to empty their bladder before the follicle study is conducted.
  • The hospital offers a follicle-monitoring program to help patients.
  • It is crucial to ensure that patients don't evaluate their results against other patients. This could cause unnecessary stress. Every person will react differently to the same treatment.

Taking Drugs

In all instances, medications should be used according to the advice of the specialist treating you. In the majority of instances, it is recommended that you have them administered by a certified professional. Some patients who choose to administer the medication themselves follow the below-mentioned guidelines.

Gonadotrpin releasing hormone (Lupron) Injection Instructions:

  • Hands thoroughly cleaned and dried.
  • Prepare the supplies, including two alcohol wipes, one tissue, and one syringe. Also, one medication.
  • The first time you use it, remove the cap from the plastic and dispose of the medicine.
  • Cleanse the Lupron vial using an alcohol-based wipe.
  • Cap off the syringe and expose the needle.
  • Reverse the plunger on the syringe until the tip is the appropriate dosage mark. Place the needle straight and securely into the middle of the vial. Then push the plunger fully into it.
  • Flip the vial upside down.
  • The syringe plunger should be pulled down and filled with medication to about a quarter of the line, adding 0.2cc (or 0.1cc in case that is the dose you are taking), and then take it out of the vial.
  • The needle in the syringe should be held up, and then flick it with your finger to eliminate the air-filled bubbles.
  • Place the syringe and the alcohol wipe with the right hand.
  • Choose the injection site, rotating sides daily. Apply pressure gently to the skin using one hand.
  • Cleanse the area, then save it for the next time to wipe the area following the injection.
  • The syringe should be held in the shape of a dart, perpendicular to the skin. Quickly insert a small needle swiftly and fully within the skin.
  • Inject slowly. Release the pressure and take the syringe off. Place the area in a towel and then wipe it with tissue.

HCG Injection Instructions:

HCG is the abbreviation in the form of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, which is a hormone that is naturally released from the placenta. The hormone is administered to women suffering from fertility issues to enhance the chances of conceiving because it is crucial for the child's life.

  • Take the vials of HCG and diluents, then clean the needle with the alcohol pads (even if the vial was just opened).
  • The syringe should be filled with HCG using the plunger to pull as far as you'd like (as advised by your doctor, usually around 1-2 cm). Then, place the needle into the vial. Turn upside down and squeeze the air into the vial, allowing the solution to fill the needle.
  • Utilise a pad that contains alcohol, and then sterilise the area that you plan to inject.
  • Always turn the needle over before injection to prevent creating air bubbles, and press the plunger slightly to get some small drops from the liquid.
  • Pick a piece of skin that has been cleaned and then quickly, by using a dart motion, push the needle into the skin, ensuring that no blood flows back and that the needle is placed in a deep enough place.
  • Use the plunger slowly to insert the solution, then wipe the area once more, allowing the alcohol to air dry.
  • The same procedure is used when injecting FSH. 3 vials are dissolved in 1-2cc of solvent, according to your doctor's prescription.
