Ovulation Induction with Timed Intercourse

Ovulation problems often cause infertility in women. There can be many reasons for these problems, but pregnancy problems are always the bottom line.


Achieving ovulation increases the chances of conception and a woman can become pregnant.


What is Ovulation Induction?
 

Ovulation Induction is a medical method to help women get pregnant. If a woman is having trouble getting pregnant because she doesn't release eggs regularly, this process can help. 

When the eggs are ready, we use another medicine to release them. This gives the best chance for pregnancy. It's a helpful way for couples who want a baby but need a little extra help.


 

On Whom Can It Be Performed?
 

  • The treatment is often used for

  • Women with irregular or infrequent menstrual cycles 

  • Women who experience anovulation, such as those who have PCOS

  • Women with unexplained infertility.
     

Timed Intercourse
 

Timed intercourse is a strategy employed to enhance the likelihood of achieving pregnancy. This approach involves engaging in sexual intercourse during the woman's most fertile period, which usually aligns with ovulation or the period following ovulation induction treatment.


During timed intercourse, couples engage in sexual activity when the woman is at her highest chance of becoming pregnant, typically occurring around 24-48 hours after ovulation..

The combination of ovulation induction and timed intercourse provides valuable assistance to couples facing infertility challenges, elevating their prospects of successfully conceiving a child.


Advantages
 

  • Cost effective

  • Less risk of multiple pregnancies

  • Easy to monitor

  • Non invasive

  • Safe
     

Risks
 

The risks associated with this approach are minimal in comparison to alternative procedures. However, when evaluating success rates, it is evident that pregnancy outcomes are less favorable compared to those of IUI and IVF.


Based on the ovarian reserve, this method can be attempted for a maximum of three to six cycles. Depending on further test outcomes, your physician might advise considering IUI or IVF for the subsequent stages.
