Ovulation Induction (OI)

In order to conceive you need functioning ovaries that release an egg, a sperm that can swim to penetrate that egg and a capable uterus to carry a baby to term. When we take a detailed medical history from you, one of the first steps is to establish if you are ovulating on a regular basis. Anovulation (not ovulating) is a common problem and we can help this process occur through ovulation induction. There are many reasons why ovulation is not occurring naturally and this can be anything from stress, being over or under weight to more complex conditions such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), thyroid disorders or ovarian failure caused by premature menopause or cancer treatments like chemotherapy

In consultation with both your Fertility Coordinator and Fertility Specialist at Panama Fertility we will ask for tests to be completed in your home county to assess and diagnose any ovulation problems.
 
These tests are:
+Ultrasound scans           +Blood tests              +Hormone levels
 
 

Once we know what is causing your underlying ovulation issues then our first course of treatment would be through medication. The two main drug regimens would be:

 

+ Tablets that increase the production of the follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). These could be Clomid, Clomiphene, Tamoxifen, Letrozole or Norethistestosterone
+ If you are not responding as well as we would like to tablet format, they we may prescribe injections of Gonadotrophins. Examples of these are Menopur, Bemfola or Gonal F. These injections are given daily.

 

This can sound overwhelming, but please don’t worry as your Fertility Coordinator will walk you through the entire process of when and how to take your medications. We are on hand to answer any questions you have throughout the process. You will also be monitored throughout the follicle stimulation phase to ensure the you are responding to the treatment well.
