Ovarian stimulation and ovulation induction
Ovarian stimulation and ovulation induction are implemented in cases where the woman presents ovulation disorders (e.g., anovulatory cycles, polycystic ovaries). This is achieved with pharmaceutical preparations in tablet or injection form of small hormone doses, in order to stimulate limited ovarian follicle growth, approximately one or two, in order to avoid the possibility of a multiple pregnancy. During the stimulation regular ultrasound and hormonal checks are performed. After ovulation induction it is recommended the couple have regular sexual contact.
